Had at Max's (from notes).

A: Pitch black.

S: Light and grainy.

T: Lots of malt with a bit of a black coffee feel. Watery, eh.

M: Coarse.

O: Not one with big stout flavors. It has a weird body for a stout and doesn't deliver on a full body. Too thin and coarse of a liquid.

The beer pours in an almost black color with no head.

The aroma is a bit boring of some leather, some roasty notes, and a strange off chocolate. A bit of spice. Not much sweetness in there.

The flavor follows again with a lack of roasted malt, some coffee and chocolate. There's certainly some muted vanilla with a tea dryness on the end.

The body is super watery for this big of a beer and it lacked any carbonation.

A really disappointing beer and really pushes how an imperial stout can be done so very wrong.

Served in a Dogfish Head snifter.

Sure, this bottle made my jaunt to Chevy Chase a bit more expensive than I anticipated, but it just sounded so good... Anyway, this stuff pours a deep onyx topped by a finger of tan foam. The nose comprises blackstrap molasses, roasted malts, light acrid coffee, mild anise, faint hints of various dark fruits, and a light wisp of smoke billowing around every now and again. The taste brings in more of the same, with a bit more of a fruity component (not enough to make things all that strange, though) and a new vein of what seems like tea. The body is a hefty medium, with a rather light moderate carbonation and a smooth feel. Overall, a very nice stout, one that makes me wanna seek out more from this brewery, despite the seemingly higher pricetags.
