Poured into my Elysian pumpkin fest little tulip.

A: pours a dark black just as a stout should

S: lots of chocolate malt and some nice bitterness with a big nose.

T: great rich roasty imperial stout taste. nice bitterness and roast flavor didn't like this one quite as much as the bordeaux barrel version.

M: very easy to drink if not a little bitter.

overall a great stout and one that I will be enjoying fairly often as its quite delicious.

11.2 oz red waxed bottle. Brewed in 2010 bottle 313. Can be kept up to 25 years.

It opens with a huge pop and is a gusher. One of the most overcarbonated beer I have encountered. Takes like 15 minutes to pour it. Maybe you shouldn't age it if it is this carbonated.

IT looks nice when it is all said and done. A rich caramel colored head with a dark black body and tons of lacing.

The smell is great too. Nice hops for a RIS. It has a woody smell to it to go with the cocoa and sugars.

The mouthfeel is different from what I expected. Super carbed, but thick. It has a bitter, robust flavor. Very good again actually. No doubt there is enough sweet alcoholicness here too. It is a unique tasting RIS. I give it credit for that.

This brewery makes great tasting brews. They just gotta figure out if they want their beer super carbonated or near flat.

Maybe the best stout I've ever had, which might not be saying a lot. Delicious chocolate-y flavor. High alc % is hidden nicely.
