4/5  rDev -3.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12oz bottle poured into a large snifter. This one pours a seemingly thin dark brown. Not exactly what I was expecting from an imperial stout. A frail, one finger head, cocoa in color, rises from the pour and dissipates quickly leaving not lacing behind. A swirl of the glass leaves soapy, oily residue clinging to the glass which is actually quite nice.

The nose is dominated by a rich coffee profile, followed by an overly-sweet vanilla aspect. A lingering smell that can only be described as Play-Doh catches my attention on the back end, which is odd to say the least. Also, as much as I want to blame a faulty nose on my part, I know I smell ripe banana - not bad necessarily, just peculiar for this style.

Taste is again primarily of a strong batch of dark roast coffee, roasted malts and vanilla. Some oak flavors squeak through from the bourbon barrel aging but bourbon does not make much of an appearance. Chocolate becomes more pronounced as it warms. A good cup of coffee is the predominate theme with this one.

Alcohol is noticeable to a small degree. This mixed with the bitterness of the coffee notes does slightly take away from an otherwise drinkable beer. Mouthfeel on the other hand it really quite nice. Rich, smooth and a precise amount of carbonation trickle over the tongue in a superb fashion.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a snifter. This is a 2014 vintage.

Appearance: Pours very dark brown/nearly black and leaves a finger of dark tan/light brown head, which fades to a layer around the glass.

Smell: Big, roasty coffee beans up front, roasted malts, light fudge. Nice balanced aroma with some big flavors.

Taste: A bit of vinous, slightly sour flavor upfront, along with coffee beans, some dark chocolate, oak, malts. The sour doesn't help the flavor, but rather nearly dominates it.

Mouth-feel: Medium carbonation with a medium, creamy body. Finishes smooth, a bit sour.

Overall: Definitely a nice, coffee stout, but the sour in the taste is a bit offputting. It doesn't completely dominate the taste but does give it a twist. Still, a nice stout.
