This beer is great. Pours pitch black in color. The flavors were great in this one.Full bodied with notes of roasty malts, chocolate covered raisons, caramel, toffee, dark fruits and slight hop profile.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a chalice. 2015 vintage.

Appearance: Pours midnight black with a moderate amount of bubbles. About one finger of deep tan head that settles into a thin creamy layer.

Smell: A very roasty and toasty dark malt forward aroma with good hints of chocolate, coffee, and dark fruit. Dark roasted barley malt with upfront hints of dark chocolate, coffee, toasted bread, smoke, caramel, and yeast. Sweet hints of molasses as well as some tobacco, leather, and anise licorice. Big hints of dark fruit with some cherry, raisin, and prune. Also some earthy hop hints. A very good rich aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a rich, roasty, and toasty dark malt driven taste with big notes of chocolate and dark fruit. Rich dark roasted barley malt with notes of dark chocolate, dark roast coffee, toast, biscuit, smoke, caramel, and yeast. Sweet notes of burnt molasses. Also coming through are some notes of leather, tobacco, and anise. Lots of sweet dark fruit undertones with notes of cherry, raisin, prune, and plum. Some earthy hop bitterness comes through towards the finish. A really nice taste.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Rich, creamy, and fairly drying on the finish. Alcohol heat is masked well.

Overall: A really good take on an Imperial Stout. Good roasty and bitter dark malt tones with some nice sweet dark fruit undertones. Stands up there with the other great big stouts.

Dark brown with golden edges. Very subtle chocolate notes. Kind of thin for a big stout and, as a result, the alcohol seems to bite a bit too harshly on the finish.

2015 vintage. 11.5% abv. 12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Pours the darkest brown; small light khaki head that fades leaving okay lacing and retention. The aromas are full of dark chocolate. Smells like a chocolate chip cookie. Flavors follow the nose. Roasted chocolate is there. Dark fruits are there. Some vanilla and caramel in the mix. Some anise/black licorice. Some espresso. Although it's bitter, there's a sweetness to it as well. It's bold and rich. The alcohol is well hidden, although there's a subtle warmth. Slightly spicy. Mouthfeel is full-bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth and creamy, but not thick. Dangerously drinkable.

This is a very nice stout. I really like it. Well done.

Appearance - 4/5
A very brown-red, almost black. A thin layer of tan head.

Smell - 4/5
Huge smell, tons of roasted malts, with big fruity alcohol aspects.

Taste - 4.25/5
Starts with some fruity alcohol taste (somewhat like red wine or cherries) and rich malts. Rich, delicious dark cocoa at the end of the sip.

Mouthfeel - 4/5
Medium body, very smooth but also quite crisp. Medium light carbonation during the sip leading to medium carbonation at the end of the sip.

Overall - 4/5
This was a good imperial stout.

3.81/5  rDev -6.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance - Poured into a stout glass to reveal a deep, dark cola brown color with a finger's worth of tan head. Good retention leads to a fair, consistent layer of surface suds. Lacing consists of spots and broken lines that slide slowly down the glass.

Smell - Strong notes of chocolate and booze, like a mudslide. Light roast and fudge.

Taste - Milk chocolate and fudgy flavors with lesser notes of earth. Hints of dark fruit, anise and vanilla before everything gets buried by the avalanche that is the big, boozy finish.

Mouthfeel - Full-bodied with low carbonation and a slightly chalky texture. Finish is dry and thinning.

Overall - Nice flavor that's unfortunately swallowed by the back-end booze. It actually reminds me quite a bit of Dragon's Milk in terms of it's booziness, except this isn't barrel-aged. This is good, but nothing I'd necessarily seek out again.
