Bottled in 2012
A- Pours a dark brown that settles into a near-black body. No transparency in this one, but not motor oil dark. Started with a big frothy mocha-colored head that leaves a thin layer of bubbles on top.
S- Chocolate syrup, cocoa powder, chocolate malt, not much roastiness.
T- The chocolate flavors are there up front, but the flavor fades quickly into some weak malt flavors in the middle. The end has a cocoa powder presence, but is not quite full-flavored either.
M- Surpisingly thin, medium carbonation, not the smoothness you would expect in an imperial stout.
O- Decent beer, but not great for the style. They revamped this one for 2013, so I will be interested to see if it improved.

Smooth character and chocolate taste. Normally I like Guiness but this stout is an outstanding substitute. My first taste was in Williamsburg, VA at the Greenleafe Cafe. Good location with a plethora of beers on tap.
This stout offers a good head, a chocolate bouquet, smooth drink and a mild, sweet finish. Not bitter and definitely drinkable. It would be excellent as a dessert all by itself!!
