From a 22oz bottle--a gift from the Beer Karma King.
A - pours a very thick, light-conquering black color with just a half finger of dark chestnutty head. Really nice looking beer--spot on for the style.
S - A touch of char to start and then a tickle of alcohol. Some dark chocolate, coffee, and certainly a dose of anise. Has some spice to it.
T - Whoa, I can hardly get past the feel to begin with... this is a THICK beer. That said, the taste is quite nice. The burnt sugar and roast are present throughout the swallow. Very malty with the hops just poking in towards the tail end. The anise is most prevalent in the aftertaste, as I breathe in its aroma. I didn't get much coffee at all in the taste, and just the smallest hint of chocolate.
M - Again, thick as hell. To follow its full body we have a nice creamy feel with just tiny, tight, and fleeting bubbles for accompaniment. For me the viscosity is teetering on too much for me.
O - This is a great RIS. It more than certainly stands toe to toe with some of the most popular out there. I was (and am) so enamored with the burning bridges that perhaps I was grasping for more similarities in flavor profile. Regardless I look forward to trying this one again.

(Served in a tulip glass)
A- This beer pours an inky black body with a thick creamy coco tan head that fades to a thick ring. It is a bit too dense to see any carbonation.
S- The big earthy black roasted malt has some green woody hops aroma to follow.
T- The smooth flavor grows to a full rounded black malt character with some coffee roasted malt and mellow charcoal notes that linger through the aftertaste. There is no real bitterness but a nice fuggle green hop flavor in the finish that supports the malt nicely.
M- The medium mouthfeel has a gentle alcohol warmth and a nice thick texture in the finish.
O- This beer is full of nice big dark roasted flavors but is is very drinkable and a nice hop support with clean yeast. The alcohol is well hidden making this a nice solid stout with English and American qualities.

A: Gorgeous oily opaque black pour - slips out of the bottle and forms a creamy mocha head.
S: Heavily roasted coffee and bitter dark chocolate hit first, then some raisin and caramel, some slight vanilla sweetness.
T: Big roasted coffee and dark chocolate, some ash. Milk chocolate sweetness and caramel in the middle of the mouth. A pretty bitter and ashy russian imperial stout
P: Very smooth. M/F bodied
O: A really awesome beer. Spiteful is off to an awesome start

Black as night with a oily and wet head of tight knitted foam, the beer laced with a curtain of foam along the glass.
Chocolate malt at the forefront of the aroma, there was some strong Graham cracker graininess and then ended in charred coffee.
The taste is so smooth with rich chocolate malt, toasty Graham cracker, roasted coffee and then some char. Smokey, sort of campfire ember, the taste is full and the feel easy.
Very good, tasty beer. Nice entry from a Brewery I'm just now hearing of.

Had this a few weeks ago when it first came out (batch #1), seemed a bit more hoppy then. It's pretty big and roasty, but the hops seem to be diminished in this batch.
Dark and oily pour into a tulip glass, generating a compact head of tan milk chocolate hued foam. Some lace is left behind around the edges of the glass.
Creamy and close to full bodied, slightly chewy. Big roasty bitterness and dry bakers chocolate. Some dark roast coffee, charred toast, dry graphite in the aftertaste. An American Imperial Stout, using Cascade hops. Pretty good and suited to the cool January night.
Recommended for fans of Bells Double Cream Stout or Dark Horse's Stout Series.
