Pours very dark brown (SRM 33-36), with dark mahogany highlights. A huge, dense, four-inch, dark chestnut head leaves a thick coating of lace as it slowly dissipates over five minutes. Ultimately, a creamy island rests within a Pretentious Beer Glass Company sauvin tulip glass.

The aroma is initially strong with a coffee-mocha weight before becoming soapy with time. Milk chocolate and malt balls remain against charred malts that are followed by cashews and sweet licorice.

The flavor is fruity and sweet, followed by deep roasted malt. Espresso is clearly in the background. Licorice and bitterness build throughout a moderately long finish. Sweetness is an unexpected and unwelcome component.

The texture is syrupy and slick with a full body. Alcohol is high, as expected, without any heat. Carbonation is modest, while residual sugar is left on the lips.

This beer is short of my hopes and has an odd hollowness to it. Something is missing, perhaps the sweetness suggests what might fill that gap. Nevertheless, I finished the glass while reading on a cold, sunny, late-February afternoon.

1 Pint 9.4 fl. oz. bottle
Bottled on Date is shown as 04/21/16
Poured into a snifter between 55F-50F

This beer pours black in-color and opaque. The two-fingered head is foamy, beige in-color, dissipates quickly, and leaves little to no lacing.

A wonderful roasted malt, cocoa, caramel or burnt sugar, and bourbon for the nose. This parade of aromas do not trip over each other but work hand-in-hand and creates a balanced, rich, velvet-like bouquet for the sense.

A medium-bodied mouthfeel, slick or oily with fleeting carbonation.

There is a pleasant bitter cocoa, dark roast coffee taste on the initial sip that quickly segues to a subtle, unique dark fruit, and molasses or burnt sugar sweetness with some boozy heat, which lingers slightly.

Overall this is an enjoyable Imperial Sout that is nicely balanced and still obtains a coffeee presence despite it's vintage. That being said I personally would not let this sit for more than 1 1/2 years as I think the coffee was the main idea and bridged a lot of the flavors this beer possesses.

Black as night. Thick, viscous, and chewy. Aroma and taste of jockstrap molasses, fudge sauce, toasty coffee, stewed plum and darkfruit, as well as a pervasive boozy note. A pretty solid beer to sip on, but I think this one could really benefit from time. It could age well for a good chunk of years I think.

L: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a jet black color and a thick consistency. There was a small amount of foamy, tan-colored head that quickly dissipated. Fair lacing.

S: A nice aroma of coffee, chocolate, malt, and some dark fruit.

T: Tasted of a fair shot of dark chocolate, a good amount of coffee, some roasted malt, dark fruit (a little bit of plum), light hops, and a bit of caramel. A very solid flavor that's not as heavy on the coffee as I thought it might be. Still, it's a pretty well done flavor.

F: A decent amount of carbonation with a very smooth finish. Medium- to full-bodied.

O: While this beer has some minor flaws, it's still incredibly drinkable. Worth a look.
