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.

2014 Vintage

A - Pours black with a one-finger tan head. Thin oily lacing.

S - Aroma of dark chocolate, roasted malts, and some alcohol.

T - Taste stats with roasted malts and dark chocolate upfront. Dark fruits and toffee appear midpalate. The finish has strong coffee and a lingering booziness.

M - Medium bodied with low carbonation. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Sticky finish.

O - Definetly an above average Imperial Stout. A nice mix of big flavors. Definetly worth a try.

2014, comes in at 11.5%, poured at around 40-50 degrees. Pours a black as night with a 1-2 finger head. Smells of roasted malts and dark fruits. Taste follows the nose. Finishes silky smooth with no alcohol noticed. Overall this is a great beer. It has a nice sweet note to it, and is surprising easy to drink for such a high ABV. Would recommend for imperial stout drinkers who like a little sweetness.
