GABF 2007. Pours to a viscous black body with a dense medium brown head. Nice lacing even in a plastic glass. The aroma is sweet roasted barley and oats with a nice chocolate and cocoa powder backbone. The flavor is really roasty. Barley, sweet and dark chocolates, crisp oats/barley flavors, roast without a ton of black patent. The palate is rich, creamy, only slightly astringent. Oily and very viscous. Very balanced.

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2007 GABF 2007. I was really excited about trying this one. There was a mild vegetable flavor present that really detracted from this one. Chocolate flavors dominate.

xmarcnolanx (929) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - OCT 12, 2007
UPDATED: APR 18, 2008 Wow, one of the standouts of the GABF. Fantastic. Aroma is hugely chocolate and coffee. Taste is rich chocolate and molasses. Just a very, very well done imperial stout. Finishes with a nice, somewhat cloying bitter chocolate. 9/5/9/4/18 ---re-rate- 4/18/08 Aroma is sweet cold chocolate, red fruit, hops, and that’s about it. Appearance: so fucking dark and insane lacing. Taste is creamy, dense chocolate and hops, some red fruit. Lingers very well. I overrated this a lot. 8/5/8/4/16

WBF. Got to have several glasses of this. Poured a dark black with nice rich chestnut head. Sweet chocolatey aroma, milk chocolate, some grain, molasses, the 9.75% barely shows. Tastes extremely smooth, sweet milk chocolate, mild alcohol. This stuff is dangerously easy to drink.
