A bottle from Winter 11-12 (so a little over a year old)
A- Deep black with no light shining through. Head is a chocolate color and starts big before falling to a thin layer, leaving a thick wall of foam on the sides of the glass.
S- Deep dark chocolate. Some dark fruit (blackberry and plum) comes in the mix along with a little caramel. A tinge of booze barely shows itself, seems to be even less than when fresh.
T- Incredibly smooth and light up front with luscious dark chocolate middle mixing with burnt toast and other roasty flavors on the end. A bit of fruit shows as it warms but the alcohol isn't detectable in the taste despite the 10% ABV. Very complex.
M- Fairly thick and creamy. A bit milkshake like with low carbonation, a bit too low for my tastes.
D- A nice imperial stout with very strong chocolate flavor. The age seems to have played nicely with the flavors. Still the chocolate is a bit strong to the point where I wouldn't immediately reach for another.
