Notes from 09/30/10
Poured into a snifter, bottle date 08/10/2009

A:Pours a jet oil black with a fingers worth of tan head that leaves scattered lacing down
the glass as it is drank down

S:Smells of caramel malt, toffee, chocolate and coffee. Also a slight hop hint in
there as well

T:Up front the malt lay the foreground for the toffee to make way and then a bite
of hops on the back burner, which is rather surprising since this has been sitting
around for over a year. A syrupy coating is left on the palate leaving a desire
to take another sip

M:A thinner body for the style but makes it for good drinkability, a small hint of
alcohol but nothing to overwhelming

D:I really enjoyed drinking this one, was in the mood for a imperial stout and this one
stepped up. Had the basic qualities that you would expect from a brew like this but obviously you can tell they added a lot of hops to the process which I found very enjoyable similar to Night Stalker. With that said I would really like to try the barrel aged versions and expresso/coffee ones as well

This is a beer I've been enjoying for a while and I'm finally getting around to reviewing.

Black pour with nice light brown head. Smells a bit smokey with hints of toasted almonds. Nice malty backbone that balances out the hops. Pretty decent mouthfeel. Nicely carbonated, but not super rich and creamy. Really solid base that works well with all sorts of variations. The oak aged version is still my favorite though.
