12/20/13 From bottle at home. Label reads "winter 2013-2014 limited bottling". Big bold beautiful Imperial stouts are what lured me into the craft world. Black Ops & Bourbon County at the beginning. Later I found Victory at sea, KBS & Rasputin so I know the possibilities. Although I found this drinkable it seemed to lack that kick in the ass character that the above named had that impressed me. The coffee & chocolate were distinct & enjoyable but the lack of body was distracting. I'll save a bottle or 2 to see if it improves as they say.

12oz bottle into snifter. bottled on september 10, 2013. enjoyed on september 15, 2014

a: pitch black with two fingers of gorgeous tan head. with a bit of swirling, the head becomes a more darker brown which is kinda cool. this is a big stout alright

s: dark fruits, chocolate, roasted malt. coffee aroma is very slight

t: dark fruits up front, then a huge roasted malt and chocolate flavour explosion. it just tastes so... dark? which is delicious of course. very chocolatey and roasty all throughout. little alcohol presence. mild-to-moderate dryness at the end. superb

m: nearly-full and sticky mouthfeel, coats your mouth. little to no carbonation. excellent & very fitting for the style

o: not a complex stout, but it's very tasty and has a deep, lingering roasty character. i've had this beer closer to fresh in terms of age, and i remember the alcohol presence being a bit too much. one year of aging worked wonders. such a good stout at an unbeatable price. try it if you haven't already!
