A: [4.00] Aggressive pour yielded a 1/2 finger tan head. The bubbles are tight and look nice in the glass. The head settles back to about a 1/4 finger/ The beer is pitch black and looks syrupy when it pours. My decoder ring tells me this was made May 21, 14 (so almost 7 months old). The ABV is listed on the bottle (10.0%)

S: [3.50] Based on the name I expected chocolate up front. I got mostly dark fruits.

T: [4.25] The taste is great. Charcoal, bitter coffee, chocolate. The beer is sweet, despite the bitter coffee.

M: [4.75] This one shines on the mouthfeel. It is creamy and rich. The beer feels like velvet on the tongue. The carbonation feels like nitro carbonation (tiny bubbles).

O: [4.25] This is a really nice beer all around. It lacks chocolate on the nose, but the taste and mouthfeel are great. The mouthfeel is really silky and smooth. It has a great body. This beer is also readily available - which is a plus. The 10% ABV makes it more of a special occasion beer - than an every day beer.

Bottle labeled "winter 12-13" so it has some age on it. Deep dark brown, nearly black, creamy tan head. Sweet black licorice and blackstrap molasses aroma. Rich flavors of dark chocolate, molasses and dark roasted malt to a lesser extent. Very thick, coats the mouth, fairly sticky. A really good imperial stout. Not overly sweet or overly roasty, good balance and the alcohol is well hidden.
