22oz. bottle poured into a CBS Snifter. Bottled in 2012. Thanks to the extremely generous roon for the bottle.

Appearance: Almost black with a nice 1/4" creamy tan cap, leaves excellent lacing.

Smell: Big roasted malt, coffee and chocolate aromas.

Taste: A nice roasted malt bitterness balanced against chocolate and coffee flavors that were evident in the aroma. Nicely consistent as it warms, the flavor is deep and the alcohol is all but completely masked..

Mouthfeel: Nice creamy mouth feel, the bitterness on the finish leaves the palate clean. As stated above very smooth with it's abv very well masked.

Overall: Yet another excellent stout.

22oz into a snifter.

A: Pours black with a moderate tan head.

S: Rich roasted malt, baker's chocolate, caramelized grain, moderate piney hoppiness.

T: Taste brings astringent roast, cherry, milk chocolate, coffee beans, leafy hop bitterness.

M: Thick-bodied with light carbonation.

O: A powerful imperial stout. The combination of heavy roast and hoppiness makes it a bit unbalanced and bitter.

A: The beer is jet plack in color. It poured with a delicate lacing of bubbles on the surface along with a thin tan collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of roasted malts are present in the nose; these become stronger as te beer warms up.
T: Intense flavors of roasted malts are present in the taste along with hints of chocolate malts and a bit of alcohol. It has a moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium- to full-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. The strong roastiness leaves your mouth a little dry in the finish.
O: This beer seems to taste more like a Russian Imperial Stout with all of the roasted malts, except that it isn't as fullbodied as beers in that style. It hides its alcohol very well considering the strength.
