It’s black and smells like whatever man...you buy this you know what you’re getting; one of the best imperial stouts in the world and if you pair it with a bowl of really fine vanilla ice cream you’re gonna think you’ve died and gone to heaven. Do it!

Bottle. Pours like used motor oil with thick creme colored head that lingers. Smells of chocolate and oatmeal with a hint of booziness. Coffee chocolate flavors I'm a smooth stout that is easy to enjoy.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle @ home. 2011 edition. Pours thick and almost black with red notes. A minimal brown head that quickly dissipates. Intense sweet & roasted with lots of vanilla, bourbon, honey, oak, dark chocolate, dates, raisins, red fruits. Big oily mouthfeel with a very soft low carbonated palate. Aftertaste is drier and has some nice licorice and leather plus some warming booze. And a plesant vinous note of red currants. High bitterness that blends well with the roast body.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rated on 9-13-2011 Green cap bottle. This beer has a small light brown head with a very long retention, opaque dark brown body and very little lacing. The aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, wood, oak, vanilla, hops, and alcohol. The taste is semi-sweet, vanilla, oak, wood, chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, and a semi-dry finish. The mouthfeel is tingly carbonation and this beer is medium-full bodied. This beer is very quaffable and very flavorable. It is a good all around beer and a sipping beer. It is worth trying and a beer I would drink again.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
22oz bottle. It pours a pitch black oily body with a small mocha head. Aroma is intensely roasty, sweet, bourbony, molasses, licorice, coffee. Taste is quite sweet, some roasted malts and licorice, but mostly vanilla, wood and bourbon. Slight booze, tobacco and leather. Nicely rounded. Mouthfeel is creamy, oily, thick with soft carbonation. Overall, a sipper and a bourbon bomb even at 2 years cellaring. Nice one tough.

Poured at tasting, black with small off white head. Aroma was bourbon oak, vanilla, licorice, and roasted malts. The bourbon taste mixed well with dark fruits, vanillas, oak, and a little booziness. The finish was deep and dark with a thicker finish. I got a little expresso late. Very nice.
