12 oz. bottle obtained on trade (thanks, GmRFx!), 2012 vintage, poured into my The Bruery "Rue the Day - June 15th 2013" snifter glass, drank 12/4/13 over an hour

A: 3/3 - pitch black with reddish hues on the edges, no clarity, poured with a tight frothy white head that settled into a subtle glass lacing with minimal residuals. mild carbonation, moderate alcohol legs

S: 11/112 - big coffee/espresso, oatmeal, tobacco and leather notes with some alcohol --> fantastic aroma!

T: 18/20 - on the anterior tongue, there's moderate bitterness supplied by the coffee and roasted malts; in the middle of the mouth, it's mostly creamy malt complexity with some residual alcohol; moderate sweet aftertaste but not cloying, invites sip after sip

M: 4/5 - incredibly creamy mouthfeel, big body from the oatmeal, especially impressive in the context of moderate carbonation

O: 9/10 - wow, really great imperial stout! I love the coffee and espresso qualities with some residual sweetness; definitely up there with Founders Breakfast Stout --> recommended if you can hunt some down (again, thanks so much, GmRFx!...I owe you for this one)

TOTAL = 45/50

Wake n Bake!

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Pours pitch black with a thick, fluffy, tan head. Smell is very roasty, coffee, chocolate, toffee, and caramel notes. Taste follows, very roasted in character with tons of coffee. Definitely some bitter chocolate notes as well, along with a deep, rich, caramel flavor. I also get a bit of smoke y flavor as well. Low carbonation, however smooth, thick, and creamy mouthfeel. Overall this is my favorite imperial stout right now. Definitely worth picking up if you can.

12oz bottle, 2012, poured into Hoppin' Frog snifter.

Opaque elixir, thin mocha head, thick lacing.

Coffee, mocha, burnt malt, hint of chocolate.

Vanilla up front, coffee, mild bitterness, dark chocolate.

Nicely carbonated, a bit thin.

Well done and enjoyable stout.
