Picked up a 22oz bomber in a trade with awdturboiv. Bottle date: 08/01/2014. Poured into a crystal tumbler glass. Pours dark black, fat tan head with crazy retention, coating my glass with thick lace. Aroma is floral spicy hops right off the bat, sweet toasted malt, black liquorish, tropical fruit and coffee. Flavor is bitter up front - coffee, dark chocolate, sweet malt, burnt toast and sappy hops, booze and berries on the finish. Mouthfeel is big and effervescent, hops linger on the palate. Super odd, yet tasty, Imperial Stout - not shocking when you consider the brewers. I imagine this would age quite nicely.

Black with a moderate amount of tan head. Good retention and eventually resolves to just some bubbles around the edge.

Smells of bakers chocolate, dark roasted malt, and some berries from the hops.

It has a mildly hopped up approach in the flavor. Berries, chocolate, and coffee. There's also some piney notes in there.

Very smooth, heavy body. It drinks easy for 10+%. Low carbonation that lends to the smooth mouthfeel.

A very good hoppy stout. The hops weren't overdone and added nice depth.
