look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

12oz single bottle (Bottled 3.13.13) from CBX - poured into a Mikkeller tulip glass...

A: black, with a frothy, 2-finger head of mocha suds; no lace.

S: black malt; roasty char; sweet; a touch smoky.

T: deep, roasted malt flavor; some vinous notes; a hint of alcohol and licorice on the end.

M: medium-bodied; higher carbonation; quite bitter.

O: a pretty good imperial stout... not quite as complex as some... feel is a touch thin.... bitter. Tasty, though.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: pitch black in the glass, dark head of dark sea foam (big-as-ya-want-it)

S: dark, roasty malts hint at espresso and cocoa nibs; subtle suggestions of anise and herbs

T: deep and roasty dark malts and bittersweet dark chocolate dominate the palate - layers of dry, chalky cocoa powder and cold, semi-sweet espresso coffee; very mellow and understated

M: smooth, full-bodied, coating, roasty aftertaste; dry finish

O: a very nice Imperial stout - lots of roasted dark malt flavors (if you couldn't tell) typical of the style - nice from start to finish

Pours black with a bit of purple hue like an eggplant color. Thick, frothy, creamy head of mocha colored foam with good retention and some lacing. Alcohol legs and the head fell off slowly and to a tallish ring around the glass that reminded me of seafoam. Nose is bittersweet with chocolate and bold espresso. Roasted toffee and dark fruit that's a little ominous. Plum. A hint of cola that doesn't translate into the drink and a wet smell like damp earth. Taste is smooth. A touch of booze and a creamy milk chocolate with plenty of coffee and burned toast. Some smoke, char a little roasty and some bitter. There's a mild hint of vanilla and a dry malty finish. Medium body and medium carbonation.

This is an impressive stout that does not lean toward the overly sweet. As milky and creamy as the chocolate is, the drink is strong and clean. The char is not over powering and together with the small bitter makes this a spirited stout that dares to be amenable and vast. Spirited and well turned out.
