4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2014 vintage. Pours a very dark brown with ruby red edges and a small tan head. Aromas of oak, vanilla, chocolate, some roast. Taste is semi sweet and lightly bitter. Flavors of marshmallow, oak, vanilla and a huge dose of chocolate. Alcohol is kept in check. Very nice chocolate expression without being cloying. This is a very nice imperial stout that quite frankly, far exceeded my expectations. Finish is oaked chocolate. Very nice.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Still quite sweet w/ the high alcohol content, this tastes of chocolate, cherry, bourbon and even a bit of coconut.... delicious and very appropriate for dessert/late night food pairings. Scored this bottle at a "Yankee Swap" this past Xmas (with help from the Wifey), and hope I can find another one someday, as I just couldnt stop myself from opening it a bit early (2013 edition).
