Poured from a 12oz can into a snifter.

Extremely dark pour with a thin and quickly dissipating brown head. Nose of roasted malt, molasses, and beef jerky. Taste is bitter coffee and chocolate, some sweetness from the heavy malt, somewhat spicy aftertaste (the beef jerky again?), and a little alcohol. Mouthfeel is viscous with some nice carbonation.

This is definitely a premium imperial stout. I could drink this as often as I could get it...though I guess I would get pretty smashed doing so.

Thanks to ewright for this one.

Poured in to Duvel tulip.

A - Poured dark black; thick; one finger of medium brown head.

S - Dark roasted malts, cocoa, licorice, dark fruit. Some hop bitterness.

T - Dark roasted malts, cocoa, espresso & faint hints of dark fruit and licorice. A nice but not overwhelming hop bitterness in the background.

M - Medium body, silky, chewy.

D - Remarkably drinkable for the ABV. This will become a regular in my cellar as long as I can find it.
