Notes / Commercial Description:
Brewed with a monstrous amount of malt and combined with aggressive American hops, this beer is powerful and complex and designed to age. Smokiness is subtle but present and blends nicely with the rich, dark flavors.

Bottle from Total Wine in Tampa. From notes.

A - Poured black with a half finger light brown head. Spotty lace and a film of retention.

S - Lot's of chocolate. Some roast. Mostly really nice chocolate.

T - Sugar. Roast was much more evident with a nice chocolate component. A little smoke in the finish but very subtle.

M - Good carbonation, medium to full body, and a bitter roasty finish with that small amount of smoke.

O/D - Definitely a tasty Imperial Stout. Lot's of great chocolate dominance, but more subtle notes in the backgroud. Complex and tasty. Split the bottle so the high ABV wasn't too difficult. Couldn't taste the alcohol. A good one.

A: Dark as night, no light penetrates this stout! Half finger of milk chocolate colored head that clings to the edge of the glass as it sinks back in.

S: Dark chocolate, burnt roasty malts. earthy hops detected. Alcohol is noticable.

T: Dark Cocoa burnt toast, and sweet carmel, alcohol warming, but not overpowering (for a 12%) green apple is detected.

M: Big chewy body, low carbonation with a lingering mouth drying astringancy.

O: As it warmed up it got better, but this could have used some time to age to mellow out the alcohol harshness and the green apple (Acetaldehyde).
