4.28/5  rDev +5.9%

From 11/30/13 notes. Had this on tap at the brewery in Ocean. 2012 vintage.

a - Pours a pitch black color with one inch of dark tan head and moderate carbonation evident. Looks very nice for a big stout.

s - Smells of coffee, roasted malts, nuts, toasted malts, dark chocolates, light sweet chocolate, and bitter malts. Nice roasty notes with some good coffee up front and bitter chocolate as well.

t - Tastes of roasted malts, sweet chocolate, coffee, cream, vanilla, toasted malts, burnt malts, nuts, and bitter dark chocolate. More sweet chocolate than the nose and some vanilla, with a lot of roasted notes again. A slight step up from the nose for me.

m - Full bodied stout and low carbonation. Crazy smooth and creamy, and no heat at all. Awesome mouthfeel.

o - Overall I'm not sure how this was a year ago but it is tasting fantastic right now. Very roasty, with a lot of coffee in the nose and a lot of sweet chocolate in the taste. Very drinkable for the ABV I loved it; hoping they bottle this one eventually.

Black body, with a high quantity of ruby highlights.

Strong assertive coffee and chocolate aromas.

Kiss of chocolate up front, followed by coffee. Assertive hops at the swallow.

Mouthfeel is a bit wimpy for the style, need more to chew on.

Not a classic, but definitely enjoyable, and looking forward to future versions.

3.9/5  rDev -3.5%

Appearance: Arrives with a film of foam pancaked on top o the fudge brown liquid; leaves a few dots behind

Smell: Roast, graham cracker, dark chocolate and coffee

Taste: Dark chocolate on the opening, with graham cracker and coffee flavors developing; roasty, in the middle, with some burnt caramel and smoke; the finish is somewhat sweet

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with moderate carbonation; some warmth in the gullet

Overall: A complex brew though a bit too sweet for my palate

Only a few sixtels of this one was released, figured I would do the honors of adding this one plus review.

A: Pitch Black, sizeable mocha head had dissipated once the glass reaches me.

S: Should have let this one warm but didn't have much time, smell is chocolate, slight roast and malt but definitely subdued, would most likely improve if let warm. However, had other Imperial Stouts that even cold the smell jumps out of the glass

T: Choclatey goodness. Not getting some of the stronger flavors (coffee etc) some Imperial stouts boast. Not much else going on, tastes like almost like a imperial milk stout, not thin though, very nice.

M: Nice. Very Very smooth and silky.

D: High, milky mouthfeel, no booze present makes this one go down pretty easy

O: Nice treat. I don't think this one will blow anyone away considering some of the stronger character yet highly drinkable Imperial Stouts like Founders etc, but definitely worth a pint.
