look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

poured 22oz bottle into chalice.

A - It is obsidian with only a slight dark brown on the very edge of my glass. A 1 finger tan head has nice retention and leaves behind very nice lacing.

S - Roasted malts, bakers and milk chocolate. There are also notes of coffee, dark fruit, maybe raisins and sorghum?

T - The flavors are well put together, yielding notes of dark roasted malt, raisins, bakers chocolate and rich milk chocolate. This is a bit sweeter than bitter and I love it! No need to age.

M - Rather standard medium body with normal carbonation.

O - A nice imperial stout that hits all the good notes. It is quite enjoyable and I recommend picking one up, maybe two.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a Due South Brewing Co. snifter. Bottleneck says A024 meaning it was bottled 1/2/14.

A- Pours a fully opaque black color with a 1/4 inch dark tan head that retains a bit before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and randomly spackled surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a broken ring behind.

S- Sweet, roasty, somewhat boozy aroma gives off notes of vanilla, dark chocolate, coffee and some moderate char.

T- Dark roast comes on nicely, turns boozy mid-palate and gives way to a charry finish. The alcohol becomes even more apparent after a few sips. The chocolate and vanilla notes are there but struggle to be seen amid the heat and fume.

M- Somewhat creamy but gets a little lost in the alcohol burn. Also thick and a bit syrupy. Medium-low carbonation and a full body.

O- I was expecting better. Maybe I should've let the bottle sit for another 3-6 months? Just has too much heat and the flavors aren't properly aligned.
