look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: black in color, 1/4 inch head, opaque, low carbonation

Smell: dark chocolate, smoke, and roasted malt

Taste: dark chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, and light caramel

Mouthfeel: heavy bodied, low carbonation, sweet and roasty

Overall: An above average rich and heavy imperial stout.. The alcohol is well hidden, but yet I feel like I have had more complex and interesting examples in the style. Not a beer I would pass up, but not one I need to rush to again.

the 2014 vintage is 11.4% abv, and feels like all of t, this is an enormous stout, a nice example of the style, but probably in need of a little time in the cellar to mellow out and integrate a bit. jet black in color with a shiny obsidian finish and about a half inch of really fizzy tan head. a nose of heavy burnt barley bitterness and some rich oatmeal, and of course the alcohol. they come in separate waves, with a bitter bakers chocolate up front and a pronounced coffee element in the middle. tons of dark barley in this thing, really intense and palate coating. the booze is evident though, and makes it feel a little thinner and hotter than it needs to be, and the medium carbonation isnt quite enough to uplift it any more. im impressed by its flavor, but wish it was a little more refined in terms of feel. definitely a slow sipper, this will get a buzz on pretty quick if you let it. new holland so far to me, has not lived up to its hype. this is good beer, but its not incredible, and its not particularly distinct from other well made big stouts out there. i like it, but im not sure i would buy it again. glad i had buddies to share the bomber with.

22oz bomber into a snifter

Jet black pour with a slight beige head. nose has raisins, dark fruits, milk chocolate, slight coffee. dark fruits being the dominant aroma.taste is heavy with dark roasted malts and all of the previously mentioned characteristics being present. mouthfeel is thick and creamy. carbonation is mild.

overall better than i was expecting. would drink again.

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.
