COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pours a deep, opaque, midnight-black, with a dense milk chocolate colored head. Brewed with a large percentage of roasted and chocolate malts, this huge beer is then aged on oak chips for added depth and complexity. Flavors are reminiscent of dark fruits, chocolate and sandalwood, making Prince Myshkin’s Stout perfect for dessert, or a dangerously smooth nightcap. Just in time to keep you warm on a cold winter night!

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2012 Wow, I always knew Dock Street was a major player in beerdom, but this one blew me away. Draft at Craft, you daft outcast. I had it last week, and had it again today to reaffirm my rating, and my rating was reaffirmed big time. The pour is onyx, with no light transmittance detected at all, and a 2-finger, clingy, very brown head. The nose is great; a medley of roasty dark malt, dark chocolate, figs, molasses, oaky earthy notes, and spicy sandalwood. The palate is hefty, rich, well balanced, very complex, with no hitn of the massive alcohol content. The flavor is heavily dark malty, semi-sweet, with rich dark chocolate, fig, molasses, dark fruit, late hops, and a super smooth finish that will cause you to want to drink this until you fall over. Wonderful, just absolutely wonderful beer. Get ya some, and get ya some today!!

This beer is served in an attractive snifter with a small but thick creamy-brown head. The aroma has strong malty notes with hints of cherry and apricots. The flavor has complex malty notes with figs and nuts. The mouth-feel is amazing - full bodied and warm.

Growler graciously shared by TBS. Poured dark brown with a nice creamy beige head. Aroma of big roasted malt, chocolate, oak, vanilla. Taste is also very big with lots of roasted malt, more vanilla and oak, some faint dark fruit. Finish is smooth and little warming. Mouth was big and creamy. Overall, a great imperial stout.
