look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Looks: like ink. The beer pours from the bottle an impenetrable, stygian black. A tiny head of dark cinnamon fades to a thick filmy layer, but never quite dissipates completely. As I drink, tan bubbles stick to the glass in latte-esque sheets of foamy delight.

Smells: like the coffee aisle. Deep aromas of espresso, bacon, burnt toast, some tangy dark fruits. One of the more overpowering coffee aromas I've experienced in a beer.

Tastes: like espresso. Oh yeeeaaahhh. The profound char of roasted coffee flavors overtakes the tongue like a first sip of morning joe, balancing bitterness with the perfect amount of sweetness. Flavors of maple syrup and bunt toast peek out just a bit, but this is coffee all the way.

Feels: perfect. It's creamy but not too rich, decadent but not overpowering. The carbonation is subtle, the body is full, and I am a happy man.

Drinks: like triumph over convention. Eccentric? Yes. An unusual application of bizarre ingredients and flavors? Certainly. But dammit; if drinking weasel poop is wrong, I don't wanna be right.

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.

Pours out black as the ace of spades. No light goes through this one. Not a lot of suds.
Smell is coffee and chocolate bread. Licorice and toffee and candy dark chocolate cocoa.
Taste is bitter coffee but with a sweet mocha sugar at first then the acid black bean hits you and you know this is one dark coffee brew. No wonder it costs so much.
Aftertaste is mellow and the alcohol goes away very quickly.
Drinkablilty is now as high here. Too much of a good thing you know, but for a one time thing, this is great!

1 pint .9 fl. oz. bottle at cellar temp poured into an oversized wine glass.

pours out completely opaque black with one finger of super creamy mocha colored head that kept a super creamy retentive layer the whole glass. left lots of thick creamy sticky lace after each swirl that very slowly creeps back into the glass.

a pretty boozy aroma. heavily roasted malt, a touch of ashy smoke, chocolate, coffee is there, but not as big as i was expecting. some smooth creamy oatmeal detectable as well as a bit of dark fruits.

a bourbony like booze, but it fits in well, heavily roasted, burnt malts. again, the coffee is there, but its not as big as i was hoping. from what i can get, its more of a fruity acidic expresso coffee bean flavor. it definatly comes in a bit more as the beer warms, it took me the second glass to really identify it. a bit of smoke with lots of creamy oatmeal and chocolate. all around very tasty even though it lacks a lot of the coffee i expected.

super creamy smooth on the palate, most likely from the oatmeal. quite rich as well. some bitterness in the finish. a big heavy mouthfeel but it appears lighter than it really is from the awesome creaminess.

goes down your throat so easily and leaves you longing for another sip right away. way too drinkable for an impy stout.

overall: this is very reminiscent of nogne- o imperial stout, maybe a little better, but its not really worth the big price tag. the last part of the bottle was almost undrinkable due to all the yeast in the bottle. although it is a top notch impy stout and i would highly recommend it.

Would be a perfect grade except for the bottles I've purchase, those have been very tame and meh, tap on the other hand has been phenomenal leading me to believe the bottles were old.
