2010 bottle opened. Smell was slight bourbon, but metallic. Taste was oxidation. No bueno. Feel was flat. Limited carb. Overall, wish my buddy hadn't let this sit

Deep brown in color and clear on the edges with no head or lacing.

Aromas of coffee, chocolate, roasted malt, and a bit of alcohol.

Taste is roasted malt mixed with coffee, chocolate, minor Hops, and a black coffee finish.

Mouthful is in the lighter side of medium and a bit rough. Carbonation is medium. Finish is dry.

Overall a decent beer. This beer is a good example of a Stout with some drawbacks. The smell is on point, the taste is unbalanced, the mouthful is rough however it is very drinkable and not overpowering. I would recommend trying it.

Poured near black into a stout glass. A couple inches of foamy tan head forms but does recede to a thin cap relatively quickly. Decent lacing at first but it dissipates as well.

Nose is traditional Imperial Stout - big roast malt bill with coffee and chocolate notes. Bit of tobacco but not much more depth. Standard, but good.

Flavor follows but is really nice. Malt character is big on the roast aspect. The chocolate/coffee notes are more subtle and it's more nuanced than expected. Touch of ripe dry fruit here, maybe prune, but not much and really just a really solid big Imperial Stout.

Feel is great - carb level is about perfect. Tight, a touch thin but high enough to add a nice lightly bitter note to make sure this doesn't come across too sweet. Definitely not on the thin side but not overly viscous - it's right where I'd want it and expect it for such a high ABV but without any barrel aging here.
