22 ounce bottle into snifter; no bottle dating, but was just released recently. Pours dense pitch black color with a 1-2 finger dense dark tan head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, vanilla, cream, toast, dark bread, light smoke/char, light licorice/dark fruit, and herbal/roasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good complexity and balance of roast/bready malt, cocoa/lactose, and light earthy hop/yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, vanilla, cream, toast, dark bread, light smoke/char, light licorice/dark fruit, and herbal/roasted earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, vanilla, cream, toast, dark bread, light smoke/char, and herbal/roasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of roast/bready malt, cocoa/lactose, and light earthy hop/yeast ester flavors; with a great roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and full bodied; with a very smooth, creamy/silky, and lightly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice imperial milk stout. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of roast/bready malt, cocoa/lactose, and light earthy hop/yeast ester flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
