Batch #4 Bottled November 2002:

WOW! What a beauteous site is that pitch-black Imperial Stout setting in my “Chalice, the only glass suitable for such a treasure in my humble opinion. The head is majestic in size, luxuriant in texture, the color an eye-appealing chocolate, and as it slowly evaporates, a silky sheet of lace is left to fondle the glass. The aroma of deep roasted grains, caramel, Starbucks coffee, sweet milk chocolate, with a noticeable oak tone, almost bourbon like, all rolled up in this wonderfully sniffable nose. Thick bittersweet malt start, the top thick and almost chewy, finish is prickly in its acidity, the hops pointful in their spiciness, the aftertaste is dry as they get. The 10% ABV makes itself known in a light alcohol bitterness and in the quite noticeable “Belly Warming”, WOW! What a treat, especially designed for the lovers of the “Dark Side”, and definitely not meant for the palate challenged.

This beer poured as dark as the night and formed a huge, flowing foaming head much like a Guiness. It slowly subsided leaving only trace lace. The aroma was a heady concoction of malt, chocolate, coffee and plums. The flavor was a heavy taste of malt, chocolate, coffee, raisins with a touch of vanilla. The finish was a touch bittersweet, like the chocolate with a vinous quality to it. A fine imperial that hides it's alcohol content well. Now if it was only easier to come by.
