8oz pour at the taproom. Thick black pour, finger of frothy looking dark tan head. Retains pretty well.

Aroma, roast malt, molasses, cocoa.

Taste, roast malt, dark chocolate, some dark red fruit or black cherry. Finishes with raw cocoa, lighter coffee and anise.

Full body, near creamy mouthfeel, coats well. Hides that large 13.2 extremely well. Would almost question it's accuracy.

A real nice big offering from these guys. Their small batches have been outstanding. One of the better non barrel aged imperials I've had in a long time.

Poured from a bomber into a snifter, the beer is jet black and thick on the pour, with a tall, foamy, dense, tan colored head. Good cling to the glass as the head recedes. Aromas of chocolate, vanilla, woody highlights, roasted caramel, subtle cherry tartness, and roasted coffee. Pretty well balanced nose. Flavors are very bitter and heavily roasted forward, with a solid blast of cocoa nib and roasted coffee hitting the forward tongue first. Vanilla and bourbon notes lighten things up a bit, and there is a very subtle cherry tartness that really comes out as the beer travels over the palate towards the back of the tongue. Subtle building warmth reminds you of the increased ABV, but the smooth, velvety body keeps it extremely drinkable. The aftertaste is more char and coffee, with some of the bittersweet chocolate still kicking around. Smooth, heavily lingering finish, with a decent coating left on the taste buds to allow you to enjoy for a while between each sip, and this is a sipper. Very solid beer!

Thought this was a great beer, the cherry is subtle, but nicely done. Think it will age very well.

Great beer. Subtle cherry. A bit malty. Slightly better finish on the back of the tongue.
