4.43/5 rDev +2.5%
A: Poured a deep black color with good carbonation leaving a nice brown cap, lacing and good head rretention
S: Big roastiness, cocoa, some smoke, booze sting
T: Big cocoa and roastiness, some coffee and back to cocoa with some leather and light smoke in the midst along with some bread, dark fruits and perhaps a bit of caramel. This beer boasts 14%. Could not tell. Really smooth, balanced as a beer this big can be.
M: Big body, loads of flavor with an extremely long cocoa and rosted finish, dry with booze stinging. Very complex and this beer just hung around for days on the palate in a very good way!
O: As usual, Boneyard knocked it out of the park.

4.4/5 rDev +1.9%
on tap at the E9 in Tacoma today.
The beer pours a blackish brown color with considerable, pillowy, creamy head and considerable lacing. The nose is attractive as well, as I get considerable milk chocolate, vanilla, light coffee and light licorice. The flavor profile is better still, as I get milk chocolate, cherry vanilla, licorice and light coffee, all on a soft and creamy, fairly sweet, rich frame. Mouthfeel is medium bodied at most, with a long, creamy and persistent finish. Alcohol is amazingly well integrated into the flavor profile, and it's really hard to believe this is a 14% abv. beer.
Really nice beer... hope to see this again on a regular basis in the NW.

Had on tap at Brouwer's during Big Wood. Review from notes.
A: Suge Knight was a nice black color with one finger of tan colored head. Nice retention, rather bubbly on top, with plenty of lacing.
S: Nice roasty malt with some chocolate and coffee. Hints of vanilla too. Rather sweet with a little faint alcohol.
T: Deep flavors of milk and dark chocolate, some faint coffee and roasted malt. A bit of caramel and toffee, slight smoke presence as well.
M: Medium to full bodied with medium carbonation. Drinks rather smooth, the 14% shows through just a bit, to let you know its there.
O: A really nice IS, Boneyard can obviously make a solid non-hoppy beer.

Black, as you'd expect. Alcohol is well hidden, especially for the ABV. Big roasted and dark chocolate notes with anise and molasses. A bit of grape and plum. Touch of brown sugar. Bittersweet dark chocolate flavor with roast and molasses. Aggressive but still manageable. The alcohol is pretty well hidden. Big and brash. Not something I'd care to drink again but definitely good for the style. This sort of beer needs to be tamed in a bourbon barrel.

4.38/5 rDev +1.4%
appearance: served in an unbranded 12oz snifter, innocuous ebony body, light mocha cream
smell: strong roasted malts, molasses, smoke, dark chocolate
taste: consumed amongst an onslaught of imperial stouts and one of the better ones, drawing comparisons to the abyss with a little more umph. dark roasted malt, molasses, burnt sugars, char, green piney hops, dark cacao, a touch of espresso. As others have indicated, the 14% comes across well and doesnt overstay its welcome on the palate
mouthfeel: rich and chew while maintaining a great deal of balance and drinkability
overall: nice stuff - boneyard is 4/4 amongst the beers i've been able to sample

750ml growler for $7.50 or so.
Pouring a very dark brown with reddish brown highlights, this beer is capped with a dense, brown head with good retention and lacing. The nose is a riot. Chocolate, caramel, brown sugar, moderate roast, mild booze, some dark fruit (raisins, prunes), vanilla and toffee are present. The roast character isn't as prominent as I'd usually like, but given the complexity of the sweetness (unlike in something simpler like, say, Eclipse or more recent Black Tuesdays), this is something I can live with. The alcohol is shockingly well-hidden.
The palate opens sweet and fudge-like with a blend of Kahlua and chocolate liqueur, followed by a mild roasted malt bitterness that tempers the sweetness just a bit. Toffee, burnt sugar, caramel are present, the blend really bringing to mind a insanely decadent coffee/chocolate brittle. Medium-full, sweet and decadent, this beer is dessert in a glass. Fruity flavors are present on the mid-palate and linger on in the finish. With a creamy carbonation, this beer is silken on the palate, and despite its heft, is drinkable (I drank about a pint the first night). Highly recommended, I'd love to see this aged/gently oxidized.

Acquired via trade
Black throughout and relatively thick in body. Very small dark brown crown atop of tight, small bubbles. Leaves the glass oily and just spotted with stick on the way down. Appropriately thick and menacing in appearance. Pretty and appropriate.
A sweet imperial stout, with notes of molasses, burnt brown sugar, and roast leading the way. There's a bit of a maple sweetness, and some char and ash notes as well, especially as the beer warms.
The flavor too is very sweet, which can be expected with an imperial stout of this magnificent heft. There's notes of brown sugar and molasses, along with a very mild chocolate, along with strong notes of ash and char, unfortunately. The alcohol is hidden extremely well for the noted ABV, but the char/ashtray notes are distracting and detract from the other flavors of the beer.
Medium in body, though I expected a fuller, thicker stout. Low carbonation.
Incredibly grateful that I got to try it, but this imperial stout wasn't one of my favorites.

Whoa, I only had a small sampler of this beast, but man it was tasty!
Pours a sludge like deep black color with a thin brown head. Looks ominous, just like I think this style should.
Aromas are of heavily roasted malts, some bakers chocolate, and hints of charred wood.
Taste is like the nose, but restrained more than I expected. Very roasty, charred, with dark bitter chocolate and malt notes up front, some brown sugar sweetness, and a bitter pine like finish. Alcohol is hidden well, would have never guessed this was 14% ABV.
Mouthfeel is thick, smooth, and chewy.
Overall, a great kick you in the mouth Imperial Stout.

Thanks to Jay for sending this my way. Poured from a 32oz growler.
Visually, this beer looks like any other stout.
The aroma is about average, some roast, some chocolate, a bit of booze.
Taste isn't far off from the nose. Slightly bitter cocoa powder is the predominant flavor. A little roast, a very tiny amount of oakiness, and not much else. The ABV is well hidden.
Mouthfeel is solid. A bit of cocoa dustiness gives this beer a unique aspect.
Overall, a good beer. However, it is not a top-tier stout. There are too many regularly available stouts in my area that I would choose over this any day of the week for me to want to trade for this again.
