4.74/5 rDev +10.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5
Served in a snifter glass.
Appearance: Dark midnight black, with more than enough sufficient lighting this brew is still opaque with small bubbles towards the head of the body. The head itself is a quite darker tan rising to maybe 1/4".
Smell: What a deep aroma, sweet coffee with a hit of mocha. You don't smell this beer you inhale it.
Taste: This beer adds something new that you don't see too often, it gives you a hit of pepper with it's strong coffee bean feel. Jesus the molasses and the coffee, some sweet bitterness that is crazy addicting.
Mouth: Paired properly with the right food, the stickiness alone is almost perfect. Medium, and so smooth.
Overall: Borderline perfect, an easy top ten all around beer considering there so many out there and definitely a top five Imperial Stout. Ridiculously complex with a little bit of everything going on. Salud!

3/7/2013 bottle. Black, brown gray head. roasty, bitter chocolate, semi sweet, some cinnamon and licorice. Spicy/hot after taste which I personally do not approve of. First sips are great, but the spice takes over and masks flavor for me after a while, for me a huge minus.

The beer pours out in a black color with a espresso looking foamy head.
The aroma is huge an delicious. Sweet roasty malt, vanilla, spice of the cinnamon. Tons of sweet chocolate.
The first thing that you get is the creamy espresso mouthfeel. It's absolutely amazing.
Then the flavor hits you with a bittersweet chocolate with some interesting spice. Then the spiciness hits that hits the middle back of your mouth and then towards the front end of your throat. It's spicy and tingly, but not offensive. It's middling and works with the chocolate very well.
It cleans up quite well with the spiciness and reminds of Imperial Biscotti with its chocolate and wonderful creamy mouthfeel.
A very interesting and exciting beer.
