6 1/2 years after I received 2 bottles from mlh1227 - I cracked the second one.
Holy hell...this is still delicious. Not as hot as it was..still complex and rich. Bell's - great job on this one. Feel confident about putting this one away for 5+ years, no deterioration at all.
12oz. bottle from mlh1227. What a guy!!
A - 1 1/2" deep chocolate milk colored head that sits on top of a beer so black that no light will ever pass through. The head is dense and retains for a while at 1/2" before falling to a cap. Full sheet of tan lace clings to the backside of the pint glass.
S - Rich, roasted malt. Coffee. A little boozy (rum) aroma. Mild sweetness. Clay, dirt. Feed store smell -- oats, grains.
T - WOW! Thick with roasted malt. Bitter dark chocolate. Bourbon like heat in the finish. Raisins and rum. Coffee....strong ass coffee!!! Delicious and complex.
M - Huge, thick mouthfeel. Slick. Smooth drinking Imperial Stout. Long, long, long finish.
D - Great drinkability for any beer, let alone a RIS with 11.5% abv! Huge beer! Excellent. Thank you mlh1227 for the sample.
