Tulip glass from bottle, purchased early 2014

A: Pitch black, thin tan head, lacing on glass

S: Unsweetened chocolate, faint coffee and vanilla, some dark fruit

T: Flavors of bitter chocolate, coffee, and raisins; gets sweeter on the finish.

M: Fairly thin, smooth but not creamy.

O: A very tasty stout, complex, more bitter than sweet. I prefer a little sweeter and creamier but definitely worth drinking.

I can't believe I'm drinking poop.

Thick, syrupy dark brown pour. Sits opaque black in my glass. 2 finger dark tan head. Archipelago of retention wraps around my glass and leaves a few lacey marks. Looks like a big, dark, bad-ass beer.

Smell is awesome. Molasses, musky spiced rum, raisins and figs and lots and lots of roast malt. Smells like a kitten puncher.

Tastes...odd. A very dark, earthy...something. Honestly it taste like coal with an acrid, drying fade. It's just not very good. It has the sharp coffee bitterness down pat but lacks any balance to take away from such harshness.

I'm not a fan and this is coming from me, a big fan of poo.

550mL bottle purchased for about $14-15 in Columus several months ago. , milk chocolate colored foam. The beer is black with dark chocolate sides. The smell is strong coffee (apparently coffee beans that have already been digested by civet cats) and roiasted malts. The beer tastes strongly of coffee beans in a nice sweetly malted web. The body is fuller than average but not as smooth as other oatmeal stouts. Overall a great beer but not worth its price point. One and done, cannot afford to drink this again.

The appearance of this beer is what you would expect from an imperial stout. Very dark brown with a beautiful Halle-Berry colored head. Easily the weakest point of this beer is it's aroma which reminded me strongly of cooked cabbage with black pepper. The smell was a turn off, but luckily it was not that intense. The taste is par for the course, but well balanced, containing mild roasted grains, coffee and a bit of caramel. However, the mouthfeel of this beer is phenomenal, on the tim of your tongue it tingles, in the middle it is smooth as silk, on on the edges it is a touch syrupy (amazing)

A good beer, but not worth the price they charge for it.

Appearance is what you expect of such a highly rated imperial stout; pitch black with a thick foamy tan head and heavy lacing. In the aroma, we get a lot of hop freshness, freshly ground coffee beans, some milk-stout like lactic acidity and vanilla sweetness and a bit of spice (maybe fresh ginger). Taste comes in vanilla-sweet at first and turns into heavy coffee bitterness that leaves a very dry long lasting finale as a mouthfeel. A bit of extra smokiness and vanilla in the taste with warming alcohol. A little too much coffee flavors and the palate was a little too dry. Very hard to drink.

From Platinum - aged one year.

A - black n tan, one finger coarse head, fades to somewhat scummy film. Spotty lace

S - muted, coffee as it warms.

T - blast of coffee, roasts, dry. Hollow mid palate. Some bready doughy notes, unusual for style. Also some stale hop notes.

M - lightly carbed, medium weight, not oily. No real booze.

O - not sure if I should have left this in the cellar or not.... Seems a little dull and dry.... Did I mention dry? Not an enjoyable drink.... Sad to say.
Would like to try one fresh to see if it was more balanced. Given overall profile, and also price point I will likely try.

Ah...the infamous weasel beer!

This beer poured with a rocky, volatile, big-bubbled head and a nice, dark body. The head then dissipated fairly quickly leaving a lasting slight ring. I wasn't sure what to expect from the aroma, but it was surprisingly reserved in the coffee department. There was a bit of dark-malt character and maybe even a hint of tartness, but otherwise it was kind of dull. I expected a strong dose of coffee, but it didn't find it. The flavor was better, though. The taste has a rush of dry-ish/dark malts up front, some English yeast characteristics, dark sweet-ish fruit later on, and a touch of coffee. Again, the coffee character is milder than I expected. In fact, the coffee almost gets lost within what would normally be just a coffee-style character from various roasted malts. If nothing else, this was a fun beer to try, and I liked it more than the regular Beer Geek Breakfast.
