4.1/5 rDev +4.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
notes from sept 3rd---- fresh from the brewery
Appearance- dark black to dark brown with no light what so ever getting through, nice tan head fades to thin lacing, nice brooding appearance
Smell- tons roasted malts , coffee, espresso, and very toasty aromas,
Taste- very richly flavored, heavy malty sweetness up front which is some what balanced out by the raosted notes on the finish, nicely balanced and overall the main thing that comes to mind to me in the flavor profile is rich
mouthfeel- very thick and heavy almost syrupy, low carbonation and slick,
Drinkability/overall- i really did enjoy this beer the more i went on, i had decent expectation since i had always been a fan of the oak aged heresay, this is definitely one worth a look if looking for full rich stout

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Surly Darkness chalice.
Appearance: Pours pitch black with a moderate amount of bubbles. Slight finger of tan head that quickly fades into a couple small patches. Leaves some decent lacing.
Smell: A rich, roasty, and sweet dark malt forward aroma with big hints of chocolate and coffee roast. Dark roasted barley malts with big upfront hints of sweet chocolate, cocoa, and coffee beans along with hints of toast, biscuit, caramel, toffee, syrup, vanilla, milk, yeast, and slight smoke. Sweet hints of molasses. Slight anise spice. Dark fruit hints of cherry, raisin, fig, and prune. Light hints of earthy hops. A very solid stout aroma.
Taste: Like the taste, a nicely sweet and roasty dark malt driven taste with big notes of chocolate and coffee. Dark roasted barley malts with a upfront taste of sweet cocoa and dark chocolate, coffee beans, toasted bread, biscuit, caramel, toffee, milk, and yeast. Sweet taste of vanilla, syrup, and molasses. Subtle notes of anise licorice spice. Solid dark fruit undertones with notes of cherry, plum, prune, and fig. Hops are pretty light. A really good imperial stout taste.
Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with a fairly high level of carbonation. Very creamy and silky. Somewhat syrupy. A little alcohol heat is noticeable but its not overly hot.
Overall: A very good imperial stout. A little sweeter tasting and lighter feeling than typical for the style but it still delivers the big roasty taste very well with some nice dark fruit notes.
