Pours very dark and syrupy, minimal head. Aroma is roasted malt. Sweet and sticky, tons of roasted malt, chocolate, black licorice/anise, espresso finish. Thick and viscous. Overall a very nice Imperial Stout.

It pours pitch black with a small tan head of less than a finger. The aroma is of coffee and some burnt bread. The taste is well balanced but with a very mellow sweetness toward the end. Full bodied and with little carbonation.

Mahogany black with thin chocolate milk-colored head. Nice roasted malts in the nose with a touch of coffee and some chocolate. Similar tasting, but somewhat creamier and less toasty. Thick creamy mouthfeel. Solid.

2014 750 into a snifter

L: Black as sin, 1-finger khaki head going quickly to a collar
S: Roasted malt, smokiness, chocolate, coffee
T: Following the nose, nice bitterness, no hops, and almost no sweetness
F: Creamy, full bodied, nice carb
O: Feels stripped down in this age of barrels and adjuncts - very well done, nowhere to hide any imperfections - excellent!

A thanks goes out to the captain of the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a black color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of roasted malts, light coffee. Taste is roasted malts, coffee, some citrus, light chocolate, faint hints of alcohol. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a quality beer.
