a - 3 ounce draft sample poured at a festival. Nice tan head with a jet black body
s - Coffee and licorice. Truly inviting.
t - Brilliant dark chocolate notes in the taste. Nice balance with the bitterness from the hops. Robust but refined flavor.
m - A little bit grainy on the tongue. Not super thick.
d - For an imperial stout it is highly drinkable. Can't wait to see this in the bottle.
Serving type: on-tap

2011 Vintage, poured into a pint glass
A- pours opaque pitch black color with a small creamy dark tan head that eventually reduces to a small layer floating on top, short lasting lace
S- deep, dark chocolate aroma that smells like a fresh fudge brownie, notes or carob & prune with some coffee on the finish
T- dark roasted chocolate up front gives way to a blast of dark fruit with notes of fig, raisin, and even some dark cherry juice, mid-palate continues sweet with brownie flavors and eventually gives a finish of caramel, butterscotch and day old coffee
M- medium-heavy body with moderate carbonation leads to a super creamy mouthfeel and a silky smooth finish, alcohol is hidden very well
O- this bottle was nearly three years old, and it is drinking wonderful. Alcohol is barely detectable and the chocolate and dark fruits have taken over, making it a sweet sipper. If you take the Sam Adams label off of this beer, I guarantee it would be rated higher
