4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Must be the 2012 version with a white cap.
Boozy and chocolaty on the aroma. Smooth, sweet.
Looks insane. Pours thick and black with a super dark head.
Taste is smooth and chocolaty finish is little aggressive but not too bad with the booziness.
Palate is great except the finish which is a little aggressive.
Overall a very nice imperial stout. Doesn’t have the acidity of others.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle - Vintage 2009 - Chocolate and light whiskey notes. Jet black with a little brown head. Chocolate and vanilla with a bit of oak notes. Very mellow and well balanced, held up great to age. A bit of alcohol heat, that you can feel not taste. There is nothing wrong with this beer, but nothing to kick you in the nuts.

22oz. Bottle. White cap-2013 vintage? Big whiskey on the nose. Pours solid black with quarter inch khaki head that dissipates quickly, moderate lacing. Flavors of bourbon, vanilla, oats, dark fruits. Fairly boozy, maybe would've been better to cellar for a bit. Overall a great example of the style.

Unk bottle date
Pours black with a finger of mocha head. Nice run of foam over the rim. Smells of vanilla. So nice. Really lengths above the regular version. Taste follows with nice notes. Awesome.
Wish I had more. Dry velvet and creme flavors. Man. I have a hard time not drinking more. Further, also want to take it back from my friends.
