look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

2009 11.2 oz bottle poured into a Duvel Tulip style glass. During the pour, the liquid comes out root beer brown (minus the carbonation). Once everything settles it looks dark brown, almost black, when it's sitting at the bottom of the glass. Small tan colored cap that dissipates quite a bit, but leaves a ring around the glass for the whole session.

Very interesting in the nose on this one. Big but not huge malt backbone here. Classic stout tones, more chocolate than coffee. Hints of vanilla and what seems like bourbon, but I don't think this was barrel aged, so maybe it's just the vanilla. Call me crazy but I think I can smell the tea it says its brewed with. Earthy pepper tone and some slight tartness, like a dry red wine.

Taste is a slight step above the smell. Plenty of roasted malt and more sweet than bitter chocolate. Some alcohol.bourbon notes, vanilla and leads into a black tea flavor. There are also some tones of some dark fruits as well. Dark and complex, not the Belgian yeast flavors I was expecting, which was nice.

Mouthfeel is good, lighter than I anticipated. Good carbonation level, well balanced and pretty smooth. The age held up very nicely. Good beer, glad I finally cracked it open. Thanks John for the recommendation.

Poured at the wonderful Duckworth's - Park Rd - Charlotte, NC... all drafts $3.50 today!

It pours very dark brown with little to no head or lacing. The nose is toasty - pleasant to look at and smell, but the taste is a letdown - especially after the amazing brews I recently tried by them in VA @ Mekong. It's thinner than an imperial stout should be - very much a flat cola thing going on. It won't sour me on this brewery.
