Pours thick, very dark brown, with little carbonation. I had to give it a pretty hard pour to produce a little mocha colored head, but that dissipated quickly, leaving little to no lace. Again, looks pretty thick.

Smells of dark fruits, damp vegetables and roasted malts. The coffee comes through not as coffee per se, but more like a nondescript dark, bitter smell. Fruit dominates the nose much more than your typical coffee stout.

On the palate, dark, sweet fruit hits first, followed by chocolate and rich, smooth espresso. Not as complex as some imperial stouts, but a palate-pleaser nonetheless. Booze is pretty well hidden, revealing itself only in a little dry, slightly minty astringency.

Mouthfeel is full, soft and round. Though not as big and full as the viscous pour would lead you to believe. Again, not a luxurious as some, but definitely fits the imperial stout bill. Nice, lasting chocolate bitterness.

Overall, this is a big, tasty stout that packs a punch. A nice pairing of sweet, dark fruit and bitter chocolate espresso flavors.

A 355ml bottle with a BB of Nov 2013. Picked up ages ago from Trembling Madness in York and stored in my garage. I reckon Ralph Steadman might have had a few of these before drawing the label...

Poured into a Duvel tulip. Bottle conditioned (chunky). A very dark brown that appears ultra-black in the glass. Yields a small head of brown foam that disappears rapidly. Aroma of rich roasted malt with notes of coffee, cocoa, burnt grain, molasses, brown sugar, faint dried fruit, a hint of vanilla and earthy yeast. Slightly sweet, with a warming whiff of booze in the background.

Tastes of intense roasted malt and coffee, followed by a powerful bitter finish. Notes of burnt grain, coffee, cocoa, molasses, brown sugar, dried fruit, subtle vanilla and earthy yeast. Rather sweet, with more than a touch of booze in the background. A zealous bitterness upon swallowing, though tempered somewhat by the sweetness. Mouthfeel is smooth, thick and tingly, with light carbonation and good body. Quite astringent, accompanied by an aftertaste of coffee, roasted malt, molasses and yeast.

Impressive - an avalanche of coffee and roasted malt overwhelms the palate. Looks nice, while the aroma and flavour are all about the coffee. Tastes like it was brewed five minutes ago. Good body; could be slightly creamier but let's not split hairs. A fantastic imperial stout with plenty of character - if you like your beers big and stuffed with coffee then don't pass this up.

4.26/5  rDev +6.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pitch black. Brownish tan/copper head.
Smell: Hard to discern. Light sweet cocoa.
Taste: Sweet cocoa and light coffee.

This is so good. The smell was difficult, but it was freezing outside and the glass of it didn't get a chance to warm. I'll update if I pick out something more. It was a sweet smell though. However, the taste was truly great. It was of sweet cocoa and coffee, with a slight alcoholic bite at the end. Really delicious. It poured like thick oil, and looked it too. I would definitely get this again.
