GT2 (8427) - San Diego County, California, USA - JAN 7, 2013
500mL from Bine&Vine. Pours clear, deep ruby. Massive, dense, mocha foam. Huge retention and complete webby lacing. Nose is Khalua, Baileys, waxy dark chocolate. Moves to cured black olive and animal. Taste is very dry, coffee acid, lemon, waxy dark chocolate. Dry, acidic coffee finish. Palate feels silky but still very dry and roasty. The longer I sit with this the better it gets. Not as olive brine heavy and harsh as Nogne O stouts and not sweet and decadent like Terrapin stouts. This is a great balance, no residual sugar, no off flavors. Very dense, melted chocolate bar palate. I guess one of those that is greater than the sum of its parts. Fiancé rating: 4.2

Bottle. Pours black with tan brown head. Nose and taste of rye, roasted chocolate malt, roasted coffee, vanilla and milk chocolate. Finishes quite dry with a rye/chocolate finish. Nice roast up front. Body is on the thinner side of medium for an imperial porter.
