Poured this from a 12 oz brown bottle. No expiration date was found, but the ABV pretty much proved that it didn't need one. Pours straight up black with ruby highlights. Thin head, but a very dark brown. No real lacing. Smell offers a smack of alcohol with sweet malts, mostly chocolate with some dark fruit. Taste reminds me a lot of the chocolate-covered liquor-soaked cherry I got my betrothed a couple of Valentine's Days ago. Very sweet tasting and surprisingly fruity. The alcohol is a bit much and isn't very well masked. Mouthfeel is thin for an imperial stout, though is medium-bodied with higher than average carbonation.
This is a solid, if not outstanding, imperial stout. The fruity flavors really set this one apart. I'd be interested to see what a few years in the cellar would do to this.
