4.45/5  rDev +3.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

eyes...
pours like motor oil, you can see bubbles conforming in spires in the bottom of the glass circled round the edges, dark brown foam that audibly sizzles and minds its manners right quick, the foam retreats into the deep dark depth slinking backwards into a miniscule o-ring of shame, she has legs and well you know the ZZ top song so why should I have to type that here? maybe I'm crazy but this just felt heavy pouring it into the glass, a nice dementedly dark den of decadence to be done here.

nose...
licorice and prunes, dark cocoa nibs, some smoke, I am oddly enough getting some notes of wood - dank wood, you know sort of musty-ish with the of scent of actual mold, the alcohol peeks through just a hair letting you know this is some party you have paid the cover charge for. nice smelling, strong chocolate (bitter) and some definite molasses going on (I'm not going to pretend that I know what Muscavado sugar is, sure, I could google it - I here that is what the kids are doing today).

taste etc...
I don't remember jesus being this thick... almost chalky cocoa flavor with really heightened bitter notes piercing the back quarters of my mouth, full on ABV kick to the groin but you don't necessarily taste it (yay jesus!), silky smooth in the mouth and it bears weight as well, a really full mouth going on here, like a chocolate bar dipped in molasses, this almost reminds me of some dark rums out of the Caribbean except no alcohol flavor, sure there is big sweetness here but the bitter and chocolate flavors completely balance out this one mother of a beast, this has great bitterness without hops screwing up the chocolate/roast flavors... damn this is tasty.

verdict?
This is the Black Jesus ! I knew the guy could turn water into wine but damn this is more impressive. This is buddy christ of beers, he instantly cheers you up. This beer is fantastic, a must have, a can not miss, a trade your sister for. this belongs among the great imp stouts I have had... I will clearly be seeking more next time I am up in upstate NY (found this @ oliver's in albany)

4.53/5  rDev +5.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

22 ounce bottle into snifter, no bottle dating. Pours super dense pitch black color with a 2 finger dense dark brown head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, roasted malt, fudge, dark bread, raisin, prune, licorice, tobacco, smoke, light char, and smoke/roasted earthiness. Incredible aromas with fantastic complexity and balance of deep and intense dark/roasted malt and fruity/earthy notes; with great strength. Taste of huge dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, fudge, roasted malt, dark bread, raisin, prune, licorice, tobacco, smoke, light char, and smoke/roasted earthiness. Fair amount of roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, fudge, roast, dark bread, raisin, prune, licorice, tobacco, smoke, light char, and roast/smoke earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity and intense robustness of dark/roasted malt and fruity/earthy flavors; with a great roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and extremely full bodied; with a very thick, creamy, slick, and lightly chalky mouthfeel that is incredible. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a world class imperial stout. All around insane complexity and balance of dark/roasted malt and fruity/earthy flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. An absolutely amazing offering.
