2013 vintage, so a year of bottle age

A - pours pitch black, head dissipates quickly with a little lacing
S - Caramel, a hint of coffee and a bit of dried dark fruits coming through
T - toasty and roasty
M - smooth as you could want. A touch lighter in the body (no surprise given it is a year old)

Overall a super solid Imperial stout. Not sure why a fair few people aren't that excited - it is a $12 6-pack classic imperial stout that checks all the boxes! 2 bucks a bottle people!

10/09/13 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. I feel guilty saying this, but if it were 2 years ago I would be ecstatic about this stout. Since then, there have been many in the genre that have out paced this effort. Not that there anything wrong here, it's just that there is not much to set it apart. Sitting in a place with 40 choices I realize that I'm privileged & the guilt sets in when I have to pass over such a noble effort. Looking forward to trying their vanilla bean brew.
