Pours a black colour, with a small brown head that fades too soon, leaving a thin layer and aring, and a creamy lace. Aroma of prunes, chocolate, notes of coffee. Creamy, thick and brandy alike palate, good carbonation. taste of prunes, chocoalte, coffee.

Great black color and smooth pour. Love the chocolate flavor and ease of drinkability. Great to sip on a cold winters evening with your favorite person.

pours a gorgeous dark black with a 1 finger malty brown looking head. The smell comes off a little boozy with lots of bready? flavor coming through no chocolate that I can detect though. The taste changes a lot as it warms starting out like a strong and good guinness-ish simple stout flavor. Ends up tasting deliciously chocolatey but not too much or fake at all imo. Overall one of my favorites also makes a damn good black flip if youre into cocktails at all

Excelente imperial stout, porem, por conter o "chocolate" no proprio nome, falta um pouco daquele aroma marcante de chocolate que outras imperials tem, sente-se muito um aroma de cefe torrado do que cacau.
Na boca, sente-se um peso marcante, viscosidade que remete licor, sabot adocicado, amargor nao persistente.
Aftertasting fica o aroma e sabor, porem sutil, nao pesiste como esperado ao primeiro gole.

Vintage 2014
A: Deep black with a brown tight head.
S: Dark roast, malt...a little brine. A little copper.
T: Intense bitter roast and cocoa powder up front. Stays on the tongue forever then eases into a long slightly sweeter finish. You breathe out the dark malt.
M: Silky smooth yet sticky for flavors.
O: More intense and noticeably better after a few years, but maybe pushing it a little with oxidation. A really delicious and alkaline stout; a nice departure from the sugar bombs nowadays. Pairs predictably well with artisan flavored chocolates.

An excellent imperial stout that embraces its chocolate notes most fully. A bit too sweet to be a beer that I'd put on my rotation regularly, but definitely a beer to respect as one that chooses its flavor target and hits it square on.
