750mL green wax 2011 release. Pours an expected used motoroil jet black with Martian red bubbles ascending into quite the thick, black looking head. Decent retention. Looks hilarious but the same as almost all Zhukov interpretations. Tawny, cellary nose with cinnamon apple and baked apples. Pretty obvious acetaldehyde like the Virgin Oak Hunahpu. Taste is woody, very bitter, rich, earthy, acidic coffee, very muted peppers. Great oily mouthfeel- wildly thick. Rich and tart in the finish with a lot of bitterness to back. Pretty good. 10/11/2011 6/4/7/5/14=3.6

Bottle (2011)

Thanks for opening this with me, VaTechHopHead!

(Aged for 1 year)

Black on black with a small espresso brown head. Spots of lacing left down the glass. Thick and rich looking. Nobody makes better looking imperial stouts than Cigar City.

Earthy and bittersweet aroma of chocolate and char, along with vanilla and rich barrel character. There's perhaps a touch of a vegetable aroma.

The flavor is just a spectacular combination of chocolate, vanilla, molasses, char, and barrel. This is a transformed beer, and doesn't particularly resemble Hunahpu's.

Full bodied with low carbonation. Creamy, silky mouthfeel.

Very, very good, though the apple brandy and whiskey variations are better.
