A- Pours a near black with a creamy 1 finger caramel colored head. Ring settles around the edges.

S- Intense coffee, fine chocolates, vanilla, mocha, and slight bourbon like booze to add depth. I really enjoy the milk/lactose character. So inviting!

T- Cocoa meets molasses. A strong hop presence. The vanilla flavor is so killer in this stout. Helps take it to a new level. A bit syrupy at times. Coffee really settles in nicely at the end. No astringency. Brash up front, smooth finish. It gets better with each sip...maybe that is the 10.9%

M- Warmth finishes strong in the back of the throat. Creamy, almost chewy. Full body and some the dry finish really drives it home. Alcohol isn't shy.

O- What a treat indeed! Not one that I can afford often, but I am happy to splurge once and give this one a shot. The vanilla takes this one on quite a ride. The coffee is there, but not over powering like some coffee stouts can be.

$8.99 for an 12 oz bottle.

This bottle is from 2008. No date on the bottle.

Pours pretty much jet black with a thick tan head. Very dense and about as dark tan as I have ever seen.

Intense roasted malt character. Candied fruits come through even though this is starting out very cold.

I would think this imperial stout would have mellowed out a bit over the years but that doesn't appear to be the case. Tons of dark chocolate, molasses, toffee, figs, and obviously a dark roasted coffee. There is a lingering acrid bitterness. I'm not sure if that comes from the hops, roasted malts or the coffee.

Huge mouthfeel. Very viscous. Easy to drink throughout. There is so warming alcohol notes and the 10.9% is evident but doesn't detract from the overall beer. This is just a delicious imperial stout. I need to find a fresh bottle for a good comparison.
