look: 3.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

It does not have any expiration date on a bottle. One number I found says:
336:14
8:59

So I assume this is an issue date. 12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Black, clean color. Clear, dark brown on a glass sides. Small one finger tall, tanned and frothy head. Diminishes fast, spare lacing. Aroma of plumes, smoked prunes, charcoal. Some chocolate and cherry. Some bread and caramel at the end. Very sweet malt taste is perfectly balanced with a bitterness. Oily and full body. Sticky. Average, medium carbonation. Little bit astringency and grittiness in a finish, followed by a solid dryness. Later dominated by an alcohol that warms up a throat nicely. Long dry finish. Fantastic beer.

Poured from a bottle into a snifter. Pours nearly black with a nice brown foamy head and lacing. The smell is not pronounced but chocolatey and sweet. The taste is wine like with grapes, raisins, and other dark fruit along with chocolate and a hint of coffee. Very good and very interesting!

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Look: Black: Subdued head.

Smell: Soy sauce, molasses

Taste: Sweet vinous (port) notes that mingle with coffee,molasses, maple syrup, and other dark fruits. Booze is prominent, but not overwhelming.

Feel: Thick: Surprisingly, somewhat peppery-spicy at the finish.

Overall: Wow; H-U-G-E syrupy sweet port-like beer, that packs a mule-kick wallop! Really a fun pour
for anyone that enjoys dark imperials.
