12 oz. bottle. Limited bottling: Winter '03-'04.
Poured the same deep inky blackness as on-tap. Frothy layer of dark tan-colored head. Nice lacing of the glass. Aromas of chocolate and coffee. Flavor lets me down. Not as big and bold as other imperial stouts. It's good, but several notches from being the best. Lots of velvety chocolate in the flavor. Mix in some espresso and some bitter hops. No alcohol noted. Nice bittersweet flavor at the end. Some smoky flavor as well. Interestingly, the sourness I detected from the tap version is not as present. Still a great sipper. Curl up by the fire and grab a book. Winter's here and this is a great beer to enjoy.
