Poured a dark dark brown, almost pure black, but not quite. A tan, creamy head lasted briefly, but left good lacing down the glass.
Aroma is not as strong as i expected, it is sweet and roasty, with hints of alcohol but not the coffee i was expecting. Hints of candy and caramel as it warms a bit.
Sweet, lots of raisins and dates inthe intitial taste. Not as much heat as i was expecting for a strong imperial stout, pretty smooth.
Very thick, almost syrupy feeling in the mouth and down the throat.
Solid drinkability. The sweetness fends off the alcohol nicely.
Not the best Imperial Stout I've ever had, but a nice, warming beer for a cold New England night. Worth trying.

2011 vintage. Poured on tap and served in a snifter, the beer is jet black, with subtle ruby highlights, and a dense, foamy, dark tan head. Aromas of coffee and booze forward, with old world fruit sweetness, woody notes, and an underlying coffee bitterness. Beast. Flavors are a blast of rich sweetness on the tongue, with black strap molasses leading the charge, followed by cocoa nibs, bitter coffee, vanilla, oak spice, and a ribbon of booze. Holy hell, this is big! Smooth and velvety in mouth, with a rich, darkly sweet aftertaste of molasses and brown sugar. Slick, smooth finish. Wow...this is a greay beer!

Appearance: It has a nice jet black color to it. It has a nice creamy tan head that dies down moderately slow and leaves some nice lacing.
Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of roasted malts, chocolate, vanilla, coffee and some dark fruit (mainly raisins).
Taste: Like the aromas, it has a some sweet roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, a slight nuttiness, vanilla and raisins.
Mouthfeel: It has a low carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.
Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by good flavors and aromas.
