Black pour with a tan head. Smells like a pan of fudge brownies - big chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, slight anise. Flavor is also chocolate forward but is very complex. Anxious to see how this ages.

Narwhal 2012. Aroma’s of roasted nuts, molasses, chocolate, caramel, as it warms alcohol. Huge aroma profile. Head has dissipated by the time I looked at it. leaves a medium lacing. mmMmmm. coffee aroma’s at first taste. This is how a stout should taste. So much malt. low sweetness, low to medium bitters. Full bodied, thick/oily texture. A long finish.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2013 bottle. Opaque very dark brown, tan head. Nose is lots of dark fruit, prune, plum, raisin, chocolate, milky coffee, roasted malt, bit plasticky, cocoa dusky. Taste is dark dried fruits, prune, raisin, sultana, plums, but the cocoa chocolate is quite dominating. Malty with dark fruit. Decent but not my favourite imperial stout style. Bit to much cocoa and lactic plasticky.

Nice offering from sierra nevada. Dark brown pour with a bit of a tan head. Light malty nose. Dark roasted chocolate and coffee. Alcohol content hidden by flavor but this packs a punch. A bit to much carbonation for me. But overall quite tasty.

Not too much bitterness on the palette, neither is it too sweet. Nicely balanced. And excellent value for the price. Might just become a regular.

Bouteille (merci Patrick). Un liquide brun presque noir. Un nez de chocolat, de tabac avec une superbe amertume qui transperce. Une bouche amère de chocolat rôti, de café torréfié et de houblon. Un autre superbe produit de la part de Sierra Nevada.

Pours almost black like oil with tan head. Cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, molasses, and some caramel on the nose; follows onto the palate. Very complex, very smooth. Full bodied.
