Re-review. 12 oz bottle into a wine glass.

A: Pours an almost perfectly pitch black color. The head is two fingers high, with a khaki shade. Retention is quite good, and some lacing sticks to the glass.

S: Yep, I'm loving all the dark chocolate in this. There are additional twinges of dark fruits, graham cracker, and caramel, all balanced by a slightly piny touch. Not hugely deep, but still a really nice nose.

T: It starts off just like the nose indicated - dark chocolate, graham cracker, caramel, and dark fruits come through vividly. The finish, however, is quite bitter with tones of roast and tobacco-like hops. There's also a kiss of alcohol I didn't quite expect (I'm so used to beers in the 9% range covering the booze perfectly), too. The booze gives it a nuancing touch of dark fruit, creating a reasonably complex yet dry imperial stout.

M: It starts off with a full, sweet feel; but it finishes dry and hoppy. It's one of the few dark beers I'd call refreshing - and that's a great thing. There isn't a lot of carbonation, instead relying purely on the dryness to cleanse the palate. And it works.

O: The tale of two stouts: one sweet and desert-y, the other bitter, dry, and almost refreshing. This is a manly drink: big, bitter, and even a touch harsh. But in a good way! I could totally imagine Catherine the Great (read: the manliest Czar ever, so manly she was a woman) drinking something like this while being boinked by Denis Diderot.
