4.15/5 rDev -1%
Poured with not much attention to its aesthetic potential. Dark, thick, blackness with slight tan head. Nose is nice - roasted coffee, wood chips?, chocolate, maybe some vanilla on the back end. Taste is first sweet - chocolate, mocha, espresso. The finish is where this beer gets interesting. The sweet richness and dark chocolate qualities dissolve into a smokey bitterness. Pretty bitter for an imperial stout with what comes across to me like some burnt wood (in a good way). Drinks relatively heavy and the alcohol is present the whole time, which is fine at 9.5%. Mouthfeel is really good. Carbonation is there but it still keeps a nice creamy quality. Really nice RIS overall.

Black throughout with a thin, creamy, light brown head that leaves behind a thin ring all the way down the glass, leaving irregular webs of lace. This is a very pretty imperial stout--gorgeous, really.
Bold roast aroma dominates, with a bit of ash and char as well. There's mild dark fruit character along with a hint of alcohol, but the bold, expressive, roasted malt is more than dominant.
The flavor is similar to the aroma, though slightly more complex. The roasted malt shines again, with a bit of a grainy chocolate flavor as well, along with alcohol warmth.
Medium to near full in body with low-moderate carbonation.
These guys continue to impress!

A nice middle of the road black color, substantial 1.33" head on the chalice. Sure is pretty. Retention solid. Lacing very good. Aroma was pretty simple, heavily roasted malt, no alcohol discernable, smelled like virgin oak. Straightforward.
Taste, wow, chewy, big malt base eats up all the alcohol perceptibility. Serious bitter notes. Not very sweet, we're talkin' that dark baker's chocolate that offers just as much bitterness as it does sweetness. The liquid fits the description of "coating" the mouth. Silky and bitter at the same time. Carbonation is spot on, a little lower than other offerings at the brewery.
Just a massive straight up stout with tons of two row, and keeps the chocolate and coffee to a minimum. Never picked up on any wood in the taste. Pretty substantial stuff, and yet, enjoyable to drink throughout.
