Unctuous chocolate black with stiff leather brown head that fades a bit too fast. 4
Steak crust, fig, 70% chocolate, and whiskey barrel on the nose - deep. 4.25
Ganache, dates, slight smoke, umami, then all sort of Christmas cake - whiskey-soaked dark cake with cherries and raisins - but most of all chocolate. Hints of brandy and slight soy, too. 4.25
Vinous acid finish and plum liqueur-filled chocolates and hints of vanilla to linger.
Medium-full, silky, big chew. 4.5

-- Like drinking a chocolate fountain. How is this not stout? Deep, amazing body, with the heat buried - hard to fault at all. Low on roast, coffee or licorice; instead juggles sweetness, dark fruits, chocolate, savoury and port notes. No hint of hops.

Sip it like a cognac - superb. 4.25

12 ounce bottle into snifter, bottled on 5/21/2014. Pours dense pitch black color with a small dense dark brown head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, fudge, toast, molasses, raisin, prune, licorice, dark bread, light smoke/char, and roasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt and moderate dark fruit notes; with good strength. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, fudge, toast, molasses, raisin, prune, licorice, dark bread, light smoke/char, and roasted earthiness. Moderate amount of roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, molasses, raisin, prune, licorice, dark bread, light smoke/char, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malts and moderate dark fruit flavors; with a great roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and full bodied; with a very smooth, creamy, moderately slick, and lightly chalky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent imperial porter. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malts and moderate dark fruit flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
