3.65/5 rDev -12.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Poured from the fridge into a tulip glass. The first 1/2 was cold, but the second had been out for about 30 minutes at room temperature before poured.
A - Black hole. You don't get a head unless you hard pour it, which results in a thin, brown cap. negative on the lacing.
S - Lots of chocolate and molasses.
T - Huge. All kinds of flavors at once. Honestly its over the top. Lots of chocolate, coffee, and molasses at the end. So much going on that it gets muddled.
M - Coats your mouth in that syrupy imperial stout goodness. Begs to be sipped.. it took me slightly over an hour to drink the 12oz single.
O - Glad that I tried it, but I won't be rushing back for it again. There are other imperial stouts, notably DF World Wide Stout, that are at a similar price point and taste better.

3.93/5 rDev -5.8%

Appearance is a deep dark brown with a finger of tan head that enjoyed some good retention and left nice thick lace behind. Roasted malts abound in both the nose and the flavor profile. The finish is a touch too astringent and puts a damper on an otherwise exceptional offering. There is a slight alcohol presence, but considering the ABV, it is very mild and unobtrusive.
Serving type: on-tap

4.18/5 rDev +0.2%

12oz 2011 vintage into a snifter.
dark, thick black pour with a slight beige head. smell is actually quite subdued..slight sweetness perhaps. the taste starts out a tad sweet...and is incredibly smooth. this is almost like a cross between a stout and barleywine. ABV not really apparent either. but you feel it quick. very malty on the finish. dark fruits...big big beer. full bodied. mild carbonation.
overall an interesting and very tasty hybrid beer.
