750ml bottle into Duvel tulip.

Appearance: Free pour yields a 2 inch frothy tan head that dissipates quickly and lacelessly. Pours a thick opaque black. No lacing.

Smell: Cocoa, roasted malt. Dark chocolate aroma comes out with time. Some sweet and earthy raisin/banana type aromas come up along with some caramel, but they're more highlights than anything.

Taste: Coffee and roasted malt up front. Effervescent and smoky coffee and roasted malt finish. Not much bitterness, but the smoky elements and the airy feel accomplish the same sweetness-taming that's normally done by bitterness. Great balance. Very mild Belgian yeast influence, sort of an apple-like flavor that plays with some of the underlying dark fruit complexity.

More sips reveal a lot of deep, rich hot cocoa and roasted malt flavor. The 11.8%ABV is very well hidden, and it's buying *a lot* of complexity and boldness of flavor--none of my usual "this is too bland for being so high ABV" criticisms for this beer. All kinds of caramel pastry flavors come out, blending perfectly with the uncommonly smoky roasted malt and coffee elements. Excellent imperial stout, hard to ask for more than what this beer delivers.

Mouthfeel: Full side of medium bodied. Smooth but overcarbonated; the carbonation is the only harsh element here. Nowhere near as hot as 11.8% ABV would have you expect.

Overall: How well this beer incorporates solid, basic RIS flavors (coffee, cocoa, roasted malt, some dark fruit) with Belgian yeast and a very high ABV is noteworthy. Approaches the quality of Alesmith Speedway Stout in my opinion. Worth stocking up on a few bottles of this for the winter.
