Thanks to Commis for the trade. Poured into a pint glass.
The beer pours a thick black with an off-white slightly creamed coffee colored head that disappears rather quickly and left no lacing along the sides of the glass. The aroma of the beer is rich in chocolatey goodness with hints of coffee and alcohol. The flavor is rich and deep. It starts off silky smooth on the tongue and quickly turns into a bold and rich chocolate malt and coffee flavored beverage. The Oatmeal lends an extremely smooth mouthfeel. The flavors are almost of a burnt milkshake and the 8.1 % ABV is easily masked by much better flavors.
This is a winner. The appearance and lack of head or lacing was slightly disappointing, but the flavor and MF are dead on. A wonderful Imperial stout.

Poured from bottle into Hoppin Frog snifter. Date on bottle is 2012. Date of review is 3/12/14.
Appearance- Pitch black with absolutely no light coming thru when held up to a bright light. Really beautiful dark tan half finger head sits on top of this beer.
Smell- Roasted malts and smoke jump right up into my nose holes. Sweet chocolate and slow-roasted beef come through too. Very little coffee, probably because of the 2 year aging.
Taste- Coffee with cream and sugar right away. It's just like drinking a delicious iced coffee from my local hipster coffee shop. I also detect sweet and sour cherries. Of course, there is still the roast and smoke too.
Mouthfeel- Just a bit thinner than I had expected. I get that chalky but pleasant film that has me believing I am drinking coffee.
Overall- The coffee has faded but still a very enjoyable beer. Not much else to say, does what it's supposed to do.
