From a bottle back in January. 50th rating for this brew. Black color with viscous brown head. Smoked meat, chocolate malt, campfire wood char aromas. Thick chewy mouthfeel. Awesome chocolate fudge, tobacco, smoked meat, dark coffee, dry wood, deep roast malt flavors--just another great stout from these guys// fanfuckingtastic

bottle 3/4/11 at rbwg. black pour with a small light brown head. aroma and flavors of soy, chocolate, wood, peppery spice, soft elegant wood, molasses and roast. there is a bit of a tannic bite on the finish and some mellow smokiness in the aftertaste. it is medium/full bodied but spice cuts it up pretty well. 8/5/8/4/16

Bottle shared by beernbourbon. Thanks Vince! Pours black with a light tan head. Aroma is smokey, oak, dark chocolate and roasted malts. Flavor is much the same, but with not a lot of smoke coming through. Pretty good beer.

Bottle shared by Beernbourbon at phaleslus bachelor party. Notes of choclately molasses, syrup, a touch of vanilla. Light meaty smoke character. Light barrel character. A tad too sweet for my liking. Good not great.

22 oz. bottle shared by beernbourbon- thanks a ton, Vince! My short, scribbly notes aren’t going to do this justice but at least I wrote numbers. Deep, opaque near-black pour with a small tan head. Notes of smoke- but not an overwhelming amount, just a nice complement- dark chocolate, roasted malts, earth, molasses, toasted brown sugar, and a rich coffee roast. Full-bodied, with a smooth, roasty mouthfeel and mild carbonation. Hell of an imperial stout.

Thanks to Hophead84 for popping this during Stone Sour fest. Pours a viscous black with a creamy tan head. Nice smoky nose with coffee, and roasted malts. Big and dense on the palate.

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2011 Bottle thanks to Brewboone. I shared this at a private BA tasting. I had seen this aging in barrels last summer when I visited the Midnight Sun brewery and was very much wanting to try this. Pours black with a light-brown head. Nose is of smoky bacon and maple. Taste is chocolate, smoky malt and hot peppery spices. Mouthfeel is medium with some bitterness. Very different and impressive.
