**Bottled on 10/11/2011**
A: Pours like a can of oil -- just pours so thick and black with a bubbly brown head on top. Surely, depending on how vigorous you pour the can the more head you get, and I definitely let it fly. Don't expect the head to stay like this throughout. But, this is what I feel a stout should look like.
S: Heavy chocolate, cocoa -- lots of nice roasted maltiness and toasted grains. Nothing bad here -- a bit of booziness, but very solid.
T: Warm, syrupy, roastiness with a little bitter finish. Not the booziness that I smelled. Some definite cocoa in there. Maybe even some caramel flavors. Nice taste.
M: Thick body -- syrupy, oily. Little carbonation, but that works here. Good chewiness, which brings out the chocolate. Nothing wow here, but good.
O: Very solid Imperial Stout -- the look of this is the winner. The smell and taste back it up. If you're looking for a heavy stout, then I'd suggest this brew.

Poured from the 12oz. can into a snifter.
This amazing brew purs a deep, inky and oily black with about a one-finger head that fades into some lingering foam around the egde. Only a bit of spotty lacing.
The aroma is roasty malt -- the darkest of dark chocolate, roast coffee, rich black tea. There are also notes of dark dried fruit .
The taste is an assault on the tongue. Intense. Chocolate, a bit of sweet toffee and raising and then big, bitter dark chocolate. The lingering, drying bitter note on the tongue has hints of more chocolate and roast coffee and malty Assam tea.
The mouthfeel is creamy and sticky with a bit of carbonation as well.
Overall, just wow. This beer does not disappoint. One of the best stouts I've tasted.
