4.65/5 rDev +14%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Appearance: Pours a dark, opaque black with just a little allowance of light and dark tan/brown head.
Smell: Strong burnt malt/bittersweet chocolate with hints of both coffee and hops.
Taste: Caresses your tongue and coats your mouth with a thick, rich flavor that seems like all the best potential flavors ever in any stout have combined here. From rich expresso notes to the smooth chocolate tinge, this is one kickbutt stout.
Mouthfeel: Next to absolute perfection. Medium to Heavy body that goes down perfectly smooth. The smoothest and easiest quaffing imperial stout I've ever tasted.
Drinkability: Warming alcohol is quite well hidden. The 9+% alch can sneak up on you....be careful - I won't have more than two of these in one sittng (anymore) as they do start to seem heavier after one..and as experience has shown, even more so, after two. A stunningly great beer, for certain, and one I always buy a case of on trips home to PA.

4.16/5 rDev +2%
look: 4.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.25
Appearance: Ebon, short tan head that lingers more than most stouts.
Smell: Dark stone fruit, some hops, big coffee.
Taste: Big black coffee taste. The bitter hangs on for a bit but is slightly offset by that ineffable dark fruit.
Mouthfeel: Oddly gritty. Does hang about in the mouth for a long time.
Overall: The sum of the parts are greater than the individual components on this one and it is a good solid stout. If you are a stout fancier like me it may not be a favorite but worth trying, buying, sharing and perhaps a revisit down the road.
