4.78/5 rDev +13.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
A: Black liquid with slight tan head.
S: Smells primarily of fudgesicle ice cream bars.
T: Grass and chocolate fudge up front, caramel in the middle, and some coffee with roasted barley malt on the back end along.
M: Medium to thick viscosity and a low level of carbonation.
O: A sweet and fantastic tasting imperial stout with chocolate, caramel and coffee flavours. My only complaints are that this beer could have better head retention and more carbonation.

22oz bottle - no date, but I assume its from this year. Served in a snifter.
Appearance: Bit of a very dark cola brown upon pouring, but this quickly got quite dark and black. Barest ring of foam around the edge, no lacing. Dark, but not a stunner in the appearance department for this category of stout.
Smell: Very rich and inviting. Rich chocolate & cocoa powder smell combined with afternotes of coffee.
Taste: Very rich. Sweet and desert like. Starts with a rich upfront chocolate taste moving into dark black coffee and bit of an espresso bitter finish at the end. Indeed a beer with coffee and chocolate as the dominant features, as advertised by the bottle. Alcohol very well hidden in all of this richness.
Mouthfeel: Creamy thick, barest level of carbonation underneath it all. Some alcohol burn/bite as it goes down the throat.
Overall / Drinkability: A definite dessert beer. I had this with dessert (Buttermilk Pie) but afterwards, I felt this beer WAS the desert. It stands all on its own. Combining it with more dessert is almost too much. But it is an amazing beer in aroma, taste, and mouthfeel. Definitely a one and done beer though. 1 large snifter was enough, and more and I would be hurting later. The beer is a slow sipping savoring beer, much like a big dessert being picked at and savored towards the end of a nice meal.
