Deep ebony hued this stout poured with an exceptionally thick light brown head that had very good lacing.

The nose is just weak. Notes of toasted malt, maybe chocolate and coffee but nothing off putting.

The nose does not do the flavor justice as its creamy, chocolatey, cocoa powdered and toasty. The finish is a strong roasted coffee that lingers on the tongue for quite a while.

The feel is dry yet has a marshmallow cream silkiness. Very nicely done as its a high gravity beer, 11.5 ABV, yet yields no evidence of such.

I was a set up to be disappointed when I smelled it but it delivered well where it counts.

poured 22oz bottle into chalice.

A - It is obsidian with only a slight dark brown on the very edge of my glass. A 1 finger tan head has nice retention and leaves behind very nice lacing.

S - Roasted malts, bakers and milk chocolate. There are also notes of coffee, dark fruit, maybe raisins and sorghum?

T - The flavors are well put together, yielding notes of dark roasted malt, raisins, bakers chocolate and rich milk chocolate. This is a bit sweeter than bitter and I love it! No need to age.

M - Rather standard medium body with normal carbonation.

O - A nice imperial stout that hits all the good notes. It is quite enjoyable and I recommend picking one up, maybe two.

Poured into a Due South Brewing Co. snifter. Bottleneck says A024 meaning it was bottled 1/2/14.

A- Pours a fully opaque black color with a 1/4 inch dark tan head that retains a bit before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and randomly spackled surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a broken ring behind.

S- Sweet, roasty, somewhat boozy aroma gives off notes of vanilla, dark chocolate, coffee and some moderate char.

T- Dark roast comes on nicely, turns boozy mid-palate and gives way to a charry finish. The alcohol becomes even more apparent after a few sips. The chocolate and vanilla notes are there but struggle to be seen amid the heat and fume.

M- Somewhat creamy but gets a little lost in the alcohol burn. Also thick and a bit syrupy. Medium-low carbonation and a full body.

O- I was expecting better. Maybe I should've let the bottle sit for another 3-6 months? Just has too much heat and the flavors aren't properly aligned.
