Poured into a 16-oz snifter from a 750 ml bottle.
Head was medium brown, disappeared quickly. Dark, not black, and the foam was somewhat disappointing.
Not a bad nose, but the alcohol was still a bit strong. I understand, it's 12%, but I hoped it would be a bit more subtle. I'd let it age for a year- which may have not been long enough- but although it started with a nice thick roastiness, the alcohol cut through the deeper flavor pretty quickly.
Taste was similar to scent- good, but you notice the alcohol a bit too much. All those normal stout-y flavors- coffee, chocolate, etc- were there, but the Belgian yeast seems to add a bit of tartness that many Imperials lack.
Mouthfeel was good, thick and lasting, and it rivaled Bell's Expedition Stout, my other favorite for this style.
Overall, great beer, but I wish I'd let it age longer.
