Ok, I am stoked to try this beer. The head was one finger super dark brown with dismal retention. The color of the beer is black with no clarity and no carbonation bubbles visible.

A dark roasted malt, chocolate, toffee, caramel, alcohol, earthy, floral, raisins, and coffee.

A dark roasted coffee, chocolate, raisins, toffee, caramel, biscuit, bread, earthy, floral, and some figs

The mouthfeel is creamy, slightly carbonated, chewy, and the finish last.

This beer is awesome. The beer flavor meld together flawlessly, a very complex rich beer. A lot going on but yet elegantly simple. Very very good beer, I am so glad that I got to drink this beer.

A very long story to the acquisition of a case of this fine brew... I am on two bottles left (now 6 years+ in age) - I've been opening one every once in a while and just relished in the development of it's complexity and richness over these years. An incredible brew, and likely my favorite of the anniversary brews (as an Arizonan, I am proud to say that I have tasted each - Starting with the first - Decadence...). Anyway - a top-class Imperial Stout. HOWEVER... a little hint... If you pick up a bottle of Weyerbacher's Tiny (http://www.beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/392/56274/)... if you have a bottle... check the number of "stars" in the upper right of the label... Check the description under the title "TINY"... count the number of words in that description... Hmmm... I was told by a reliable source at Weyerbacher that this number (13 for those of you who don't have access) is no small coincidence...
