22 oz bottle split and poured into a Central Waters tulip.
Serving temperature 45-50°F "Learn to serve" with a snifter shown.

I picked this up at the Central Waters anniversary party before sampling it. Had I had it first I would have got much, much more of this!

A - Central Waters debuts their anniversary beer with their greatest label design yet (not a hard feat really...). Clarity through the silent pour results in a near pitch black-filled tulip. Fourteen Fourteen needs a pretty tall pour to coax the thin-but-dense tan head from it.

S - The thick, rich chocolate aroma reminds of Satin Solstice with it's faint coffee undertones, but the impeccable barrel aging Central Waters is known for is near orgasmic! Soft wood char adds depth to the heavy malt profile while light vanilla bean overlaps the incredibly smooth bourbon alcohol. Subtle heat wafts out, but never does it get overwhelming.

T - Voluptuous, rich chocolate coats the tongue gently as cold, fresh (oxymoron, I know) coffee follows up with a faint bittering quality. Creamy vanilla perfectly engages the chocolate roast while mellow wood and smooth, aged bourbon flavor really show Central Waters' barrel aging finesse.

M - Creamy, soft, and smooth, this rich stout feels like black velvet. Fourteen Fourteen's thick body is perfectly carbonated with a discrete alcohol warmth that keeps this beer from becoming disruptive.

O - Move over Rare, Fourteen Fourteen is better and $40 less. This sophisticated imperial stout is near perfect in every regard! From it's deep, inviting aroma to the luscious, rich flavor and feel, Central Waters' balance in barrel aging is damn near unsurpassed. I know it's only January, but this may very well be my favorite beer of 2012!
