3.25/5  rDev -20.7%

12oz bottle
dated: best before 8-30-14
oversized wine glass

A- Pours a near black with a finger high head of dark mocha. ring around the glass after 3-4 minutes, nice sticky lacing.

S- Dark malts, chocolate, some coffee, hints of brown sugar, some alcohol.

T- Very strong alcohol / hops bite right up front, followed by some roasted malt, some bitter chocolate, bitter coffee. Alcohol is surprisingly overpowering throughout the drink, much more than what your nose tells you.

M- full body, creamy smooth and fizz until you swallow.

O- Average nose, and to me this bottle anyway the alcohol is overpowering any balance of the flavors, I have another that I will probably sit on for a year or so and see if it settles down some.

Solid black with a rich and dense brown head that leaves lots of lacing. Smell is rich and roasty with coffee and chocolate notes on top of a mild smoke. Taste matches up with the smell. Very rich and deep flavor with some smoke up front, coffee roast and dark chocolate. Full feel with pillowy soft carbonation that coddles the palate. Overall, a wonderful imperial stout with so much depth. Great example of the style.

12 oz bottle poured into a nonic.

Pours nearly pitch black with a half finger of mocha foam. Aroma is full of dark chocolate, with a bit of toffee and a hint of black licorice.

First sip is full bodied and full of sweet roasted malt flavor, without any roasted bitterness. Hops are moderate, yet subdued and really take a back seat to the creamy malt sweetness. There is a slightly hoppy/bitter bite on the finish that helps to round the beer out and temper the sweetness.

I like this beer a lot, I'll certainly keep an eye out to purchase again.
