An amazing stout indeed. Super fragrant and tasty, dark chocolate and coffee play between a wonderful roasted malt backdrop. Plenty of alcohol warmth and a sweet, fudge finish make this simply wonderful. Super creamy, full body. One of the best stouts, and best values, available today.

An outstanding stout indeed, although I certainly notice an inconsistency with the strength of the chocolate flavor from bottle to bottle. However, putting any imperfections aside, it's still a highly drinkable 10% ABV beer.

2014 vintage served into tulip glass from a 12 oz bottle.

Look: Deep opaque black with ruby edges. Generous dark tan head develops with nice cascading effect, settling to a film with bubbles and lacing around the edges.

Smell: Roasty, boozy, fruity

Taste: sweet roasted malt with fruity alcoholic twang, very mild bitterness towards the finish. Strong alcoholic signature.

Feel: Smooth mouthfeel, thick body

Overall: A very complete imperial stout, with a complex palate and a fine presentation. In the end, it may be a bit on the sweet side for my taste and the alcohol is more apparent than with some stouts of this strength. Overall, though, a really fine brew.
