Bottle dated 7/02/16
Pours a very dark brown with a puny light brown head that vanishes quickly. No lacing at all.
Aroma of cocoa, burnt sugar, ash and some booze.
Flavor follows, very smoky and boozy finish.
Texture is about right for a big stout but it has a "bite" to it.
I like big boozy stouts so this falls into place nicely. Not sure if I'd buy it again so I'll sit on the second on for another six months.

Poured in honor of the late Carrie Fisher, may the Force be with you, always. 750ml bomber into standard pint glass. Bottled on July 5th 2016.

L: The Dark side emanates from the black color of this particular brew. Tan layer lays atop this like Princess Leia on Jabba the Hutt.

S: Nutty, dried fruits, coffee, vanilla and a flare of alcohol similar to Leia's easily flaring witful temper.

T: Quite smooth like Han Solo, toasted wheat bread, hint of wood smoke, vanilla, pecans, brown sugar, dried dates. Aftertaste is semi-sweet chocolate chips.

F: Medium bodied, very smooth on the tongue.

O: Really excellent beer here. Alcohol is hidden very well and such a vast complex flavor profile.

2016 Star Wars label release.

Poured from a bomber bottle dated 7/05/16 (Almost 6 months old), into a Funky Buddha snifter.

1 finger,creamy,dark khaki head,with very good retention,and a beautiful cascade on the pour.Dark / jet black in color,with zero light coming through the glass.Very light carbonation.

On the nose I get mostly sweet dark fruits and pecans,with notes of toffee,caramel,and sweet chocolate.The scent is very sweet and sugary.Slight notes of sweet licorice.The most dominant dark fruit aroma is cherry.

The palate follows the nose.Lots of sweet dark fruits,with toffee,and caramel up front.And some sweet chocolate and coffee on the back end.More cherries as well.

The body is heavy,thick,chewy,and extremely viscous.Nice warming alcohol feel as well.Dry and chalky finish.

The first time I tried this one it was a little too much for me ( 12:30 PM,paired with McDonald's hot cakes.lol).But it was very good,and very complex after almost 6 months aging....This is a damn good imperial stout.

22 oz bottle was poured into a snifter.

Appearance: A one finger mocha head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pitch black color with no vision of anything.

Smell: Vanilla, sweet pecans, roasty, milk chocolate, banana, dark fruits, figs, caramel, ashy, warm booze, a little booze.

Taste: Nice milk chocolate flavor, vanilla, roasted, vabilla, slight bourbon, warm alcohol, ashy bitterness, dark dark fruits, bananas, sweet pecans, and very tasty.

Mouthfeel: Silky smooth, medium to full bodied, medium carbonation, a little booze, nice flavor, and delicious.

Overall: Nice beer enjoyed on this Christmas day. I could enjoy this beer every year. Might have to save some bottles.

650ml bottle poured into a sniffer. This one is 2016 release.

Very deep brown to almost opaque black in color, it tops with one finger of foamy tan head that stays for a while before collapsing to some bubble film atop and leaving only some patch and spot of sticky lace. Not surprise showcase for the brew with such big ABV.

The aroma is intense which is nicely packed up with fruity ester in kind of currant, cocoa, chocolate, coffee, roasted but not that astringent, charred wood, creamy, licorice, nut, molasses, brown sugar, bourbon, oaky, vanilla, and spice, quite complex overall. The aroma is more open when the beer starts to warm with more prominent fruity ester and bourbon.

The taste kicks off with sweetness and fruitiness upfront, after that, it is counterbalanced by roasted, charred wood, cocoa, chocolate, and creamy coffee. Bourbon character reveals in the middle with notes of vanilla, oak, and spicy alcohol that thereafter turns to some heat behind the palate and flows to the throat. Suggestions of nut, almond, licorice, molasses, and brown sugar are also there to add more flavor dimensions. Finish is quite lasting with bourbon and bitter hop.

Full body with smooth mouthfeel and some crisp carbonation through the palate to carry along well its body, finish is dry.

Complex, hefty, and solid with big alcohol lurking, this one is not that easy to drink and only for ones who don’t have faint of heart. Good for sipping since it is big and bold.
