This is a nice imperial...Motor oil-coffee presentation in the glass, with nice head retention and lacing. Great sweetness and easy drinking balance, with the alcohol being amazingly well buried in the mix for a pour that comes in at 10% ABV. (It does of course kick after the fact!) There is a fairly prominent coffee bitterness in the finish that does lingers on the pallet. (Note: Coffee is of course a major component of this batch and it's great to drink a beer that actually includes the flavors the brewer advertises! (Kudos Pub Dog.) Some may not like the prominence of the coffee, but the syrupy upfront sweetness is a great foil-counterbalance.

Pours down with a thick caramel head. Pitch dark color. Aroma has a hint of dark chocolate and nuts. Alcohol is well blended in the flavor which tastes like dark chocolate, walnuts and smoke. Creamy texture that finishes with a long lasting smoky finish.

This is the 2014 version. Nice 2 finger head. Pours dark black like used motor oil. Great aroma of coffee and oak. The oak really comes through in the taste but not over powering just right. Good coffee flavor with a slightly bitter finish. This is one great Maryland beer.

Fubark Imperial Stout is planned to be a once yearly brew with a yearly variation in taste.
2013
This is batch 1000
70 IBU
Aged on Oak and spiced with Anise.
375 ml bottle

A - aggressive pour into 22 ounce glass yields a straight black brew with a short head that fades very quickly but leaves lacing.
S - anise in the aroma, dark malts, but I don't detect much wood. I'll let some warm and look for the wood later.
T - simple straight forward bittered stout with flavor additions of anise and some trace of wood resin. Not too complex but also not harsh.
M - smooth but light bodied and undercarbed from what I expect an imperial stout to be.
O - easily drinkable but not remarkable

Drop the price a bit and this would be something I'd pick up on a yearly basis to see what different flavor additions do to the base beer.

2013 bottling. 375ml poured into a teku. The brew apoears black in color with a rich mocha head that fades leaving a full wall of webby lace.

Aroma is roasty blending to a sweet milk chocolate scent, anise and light coffee.

Tastes milk chocolate, roasty earthen bitterness then anise with almost a cola-like finish.

This is medium in body with modest carbonation. Creamy rich and pleasantly smooth with no alcohol impact. Not a bad brew but not something I feel I need to drink again.
