4.25/5  rDev +1.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a bomber into a snifter. Pours a deep dark black with a one-finger mocha colored head, with nice lacing and tight bubbles. The aroma, as expected, has a lot of sweet chocolate and coffee notes, with maybe a hint of vanilla. The taste has those same chocolate notes, with some coffee bean and a slight bit of roasted malts. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a decent amount of carbonation, along with being smooth and silky. The alcohol content is admirably hidden as well. However, it comes off a bit lighter and thinner than I would've liked.

Overall, a nice stout from ST, I look forward to trying their other sweet stouts as well.

4.51/5  rDev +7.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Opened on Xmas Day, had aged this for a year or two but couldn’t find a batch date. Into a tulip glass this poured a thick oily black colour, with a slight whispy head, great lacing. 4.25
S – super rich, creamy chocolate, smooth coffee, cinnamon and vanilla, honey biscuits, soft chocolatey sweetness to it, a light bitterness, reminiscent of those chocolate swirl cookie sticks, only slight hints of warming alcohol mixed in nicely with the coffee, amazing. 4.5
T – soft creamy chocolate, then more of a coffee character through the body, cocoa powder, hints of chocolate chili spice, creamy vanilla really comes through, lots of dark and milk chocolate, subtle caramel. Finish is full, mildly spicy, and dries out a bit leaving a complex mocha aftertaste with a hint of spice. 4.5
M – Probably the creamiest IS I can remember having, this is an absolutely delicious dessert beer, big big body to it, but so smooth riding on waves of chocolate and coffee. Light/moderate carbnation, works perfectly with the bitterness to cut through some of the sweetness and alcohol. 4.75
This is a remarkable beer, just amazing complexity with a mélange of balanced coffee and chocolate character. (I found the chocolate was more dominant flavor wise, but the coffee contributed a lot to the feel). It would be interesting to play around with the proportions for curiosity sake, but I think ST has pretty well nailed it here. Wouldn’t change anything with this, it’s a magical combination and works very nicely. 4.5

22 ounce bottle into snifter, bottled on 5/26/2011. Pours pitch black color with a 1 finger dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a thin lace cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass with some alcohol legs. Aromas of huge milk chocolate, cocoa, fudge, toffee, cream, vanilla, roasted malt, caramel, light coffee, toast, and roasted earthiness. Fantastic complexity and balance of chocolate, dark/roasted malt, and light coffee notes; with great strength. Taste of big milk chocolate, cocoa, fudge, toffee, caramel, toast, vanilla, cream, coffee, roasted malt, and roasted earthiness. Light roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of milk chocolate, cocoa, fudge, caramel, toast, toffee, vanilla, cream, coffee, and roasted malt on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity and balance of chocolate and dark/roasted malt flavors with moderate coffee presence; with big robustness and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and full bodied; with a creamy, slick, and lightly chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic chocolate/coffee imperial stout! Even with the significant age of it. All around awesome complexity, balance, and robustness of chocolate, dark/roasted malt, and light coffee flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.
