UPDATED: FEB 24, 2012 Big heavy sweet roasted imperial stout, no frills. Aroma is strong roasted black malts and so is body. Finish goes bitter, like bitter chocolate. So it’s gotta have a ton of hops, I’m a fan.

Pours dark black with notes of burnt caramel. the heavy roast of the malts then fill up while still keeping the abc somewhat hidden. I nice dry long finish shows the abc a bit more than normal.

What can you say about this one....pours liquid black with a small tan head. Nose of high % dark chocolate, oatmeal and roasted notes...some smoke as well. Mouthfeel is rich and full, and the flavor is like the nose, with a touch of coffee and very dark fruits as well.

Pour is pitch black with a slight tan mocha colored head. Nose is of oatmeal and coffee.and some chocolate hints as well. Taste is of coffee mostly, with a very strong hop presence in the back end of the taste. Rather light on the tongue for 10.5%.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, 22oz. It’s quite close to a 5 on appearance, but the head is a bit small and diminishing. It’s black as the original sin, and topped by a dark tan head. The aroma is big and intense, with soy sauce hints, lots of chocolate and coffee, alcohol and a nice hoppyness. Big flavor of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, hoppy and roasted bitterness and a faint spiced note I first thought was due to the ginger chocolate I was eating with it. It’s full-bodied, slighlty warming and silky on the palate. Lasting roasted and bitter finish. Damn, this was nice! 110708
