thanks a lot to Brandon for sharing this 750ml, enjoyed chilled in a glass and allowed to rise in temperature gradually.

The color is black with opaque clarity and thin tan head. The smell is very roasty almost burnt acrid with slight chewy sweet brownie batter-like aroma. The feel is rich intense and highly roasted with a dry quality with a lot of alcohol and woody tannin in the feel.

The flavor is good at first but improves as it warms with roasty and rich woody flavor with light sweetness and mild cocoa with dark fruit and earthy quality with some woody flavor continuing mid palate into a mild alcohol flavor as it finishes warm and dry. Overall I consider this a great stout -it tastes way better near cellar temp after some of the alcohol settles -a great Imperial stout even though it is 16% Thanks a lot Brandon!

Shared by GT. Thanks man.

The beer is near black with a thin beige head. The aroma offers roast, barrels, booze, chocolate. The flavor imparts chocolate and heavy bourbon, exceeding the aroma. Quite nice. Medium bodied with adequate carbonation. Tasty beer. Heat in the finish. Solid.

Served in a stemless snifter.

Big thanks to SubpoenaDeuces for this bottle!

Bottle #1549/3495. So the name apparently refers to an aerial maneuver wherein the pilot brings the plane's nose suddenly vertical and drops it back down, all the while maintaining constant altitude. The more you know.

This stuff pours a deep black-brown topped by a half-finger of sienna foam. The nose comprises roasted malts, deep dark chocolate, bourbon, and light char. A faint whiff of booze makes itself known... The taste brings in more of the same, along with some molasses and the knowledge that that light boozy smell foreshadowed some major alcoholic heat. It doesn't detract all that much from things, but it does occasionally get in the way a bit. The body is a straight medium, with a light moderate carbonation, a smooth feel, and a dry finish. Overall, a very tasty barrel-aged stout, one that seems to be held back only by its latent heat. Given a bit more time (hell, I held off for several months!), this will probably be pretty damn fantastic.
