Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 12.00%

Notes / Commercial Description:
A few times in the history of craft beer it has happened that a highly praised beer rises beyond mortal stardom into the higher godly league. Usually the recipe to make such heavenly drops is thick fudge-like body, pitch black color, amazingly overwhelming aromas of chocolate, coffee, dark fruits and muscovado sugar, obviously only made in limited amounts and most crucial of all -- it must taste rare!

A: Pours super dark, like used motor oil. The head is dark golden-brown, 1-1/2 fingers thick, and it lingers to the bottom of the glass with amazing lacing. Already, I know I'm dealing with a serious imperial stout.

S: A lot of aromas going on here, including burnt toast, aged dark rum, vanilla, and orange.

T: A lot of malty sweetness. A whole lot. Cloying, even. Acrid, burnt grain. Dark fruits, including dates and raisins. Vanilla. Rum. And just a hint of citrus.

M: Smooth, creamy, and with just enough carbonation. Booziness is pretty mild for such a high ABV beer.

O: It's a malt-bomb, which is the only strike against it in my book (I like some malt sweetness, but this one was a bit cloying). If that were toned down a notch, it would be the perfect imperial stout. I'm definitely going to buy another can (or 4) the next time I'm at the local beer shop.

Pours black with a two finger da k brown head.
Smells of chocolate, booze and smoke.
Taste follows the nose. The smoke is kind of a suprise. A nice hop bite with this, and the burn continues after going down. What a big beer!
Very thick mouthfeel.

Batch 003. Pours dark as Satan's heart. World class head volume, lacing and retention.

Quite outstanding rich nose of molasses, caramel, dark fruits (plum, raisin), light roast and even lighter char and chocolate.

Rich heavy full body that is very creamy and coats the tongue. World class carbonation / body balance that opens the complex flavors up. The middle is nicely effervescent and the finish hits just the right mark of prickliness.

The flavor profile is quite outstanding and more complex than the nose. Had the alcohol remained completely covered, it would be world class. Char and roast lead with tobacco and leather lurking underneath. These add notes of coffee as the middle approaches. The middle is a rich sweet explosion of caramel and molasses that is balanced by a moderate bitterness derived from both roast and herbal hops. As the bitterness ebbs, plum and raisin arrive over bakers chocolate. The finish begins as a slow fade of mostly caramel but here alcohol comes uncovered...both in flavor and astringency. This astringency leaves a bit of heat and implied dryness. The lingering finish is that of astringent alcohol and prune.

Can poured into a pint glass

Pours a Dark brown liquid but is pitch black. Giant brown foam head, settles to a dense, solid three finger foam cap. Good lacings.

Aroma of chocolate , roast coffee, dark fruits, and a whiff of peppery spice

Taste is delicious. Smooth choclate, hint of coffee

Can taste the alcohol, but it is smooth. Roast coffee taste lingers in the back of the tongue.

Great stout, repeatable
