look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Bottled on: 11/2013

Picked up in a trade from Maryland. Poured into a small Stone branded snifter.

Pours viscous dark black with a thin tan head that dissipates after a few sips, nice lacing from start to finish. Nose is earthy and peppery, plum and toasted malt, sweet chocolate, black liquorish. The taste is absolutely phenomenal - similar to the nose, very earthy, dark toasted malt, raisin, bitter dark chocolate and as it warms up a bit the cinnamon and chilies really come through, with a little warmth on the back end from the high ABV. A lot going on, but in perfect harmony - extremely well balanced flavors. The mouthfeel is perfect for the style - big bodied, creamy, moderate carbonation, finishes extremely dry.

Such a good Imperial Stout.

This is one of my favorite beers, oddly enough only beer that I have dreams about. I simply find myself craving it at the most unusual times and it's unfortunately not a beer I often have.

It's the best stout I've ever had. Beats all of goose's BCBS offerings IMO. Superb tastes the whole way through.

Well done perennial.
