Reviewed from notes, 3/24/04 Michael Jackson Tasting @ R.F.D.'s

Appearance: Black as night, black as pitch, blacker than the heart of the vilest witch. Oh yeah, it had a thick brown head as well.

Smell: Espresso, bittersweet chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla.

Taste: Molasses, toffee, hints of cocoa. Interesting interplay between dry and sweet touches.

Mouthfeel: Big, rich, bold. This is man's beer here. (jk ladies)

Drinkability: For a monster of a stout this went down very smooth.

Served in a sample cup at the Michael Jackson Beer tasting held at RFD's.

Appearance: Jet black with a dark brown head, very short lived. A ring of bubbles was left at the edge of the "glass." No lacing was left either.

Smell: Rich, coffee, vanilla, and oaky overtones lying atop some bountiful malt goodness. Slightly buttery and toffee-like aromas lurking around, too, but not overpowering.

Taste: Rich and buttery with vanilla highlights. Dark milk chocolate cocoa flavors. Slightly oaky aftertastes. Nummilicious.

Mouthfeel: Thick, chewy, righteously hearty. Good gawd, y'all.

Drinkability: Ok, so I pimped myself to the brewer to get another sample glass, that's how stellar this stuff is. It's a dessert beer in every sense of the word. Why have anything else after this?

Marginalia: Sleepy Hollow Imperial Stout aged in Jim Beam barrels. Apparently only 2 barrels of this stuff was made. Grab it while you can.
