2011 bottle thanks Jason
Big black pour thick oatmeal looking brown head. Hoppy stout aroma a bit acidic hot alcohols smells like it could use some age some light bitter coffee and cocoa. Full well coated palate lightly creamy. Lactose lots of bitter cocoa powder a full hopping some light sweet ffinishing notes. A bit of hot alcohols in the finish. I’d like to try this again in a couple years.

Great beer with tons of characteristics of a Danish stout. Reminds me a bit of De Molen Heaven and Hell. Really rich toasty nutty malts with aromatic hops and nice balanced finish. One hell of an IRS.

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a viscous looking midnight black in color w/ a 2 finger medium brown head that left heavy, sticky lacing on the glass for days. Aromas of charred malts, burnt brown sugar, dark chocolate, molasses, smokiness, and that unique vanilla marshmallow note. The taste starts off w/ sweet molasses, vanilla , and charred malts up front, leading into peated smokiness, and finishing w/ a good amount of herbal hop bitterness. Full bodied and creamy w/ adequate carbonation. Definately a sipper, but that’s what it was designed for.Overall, fantastic as usual by Phil Markowski. Regrefully, he is no longer the head brewer at Southampton. They should retire this beer.

2010 bottle. Very dark oily brownish black color. Fairly decent head upon pouring, diminishes rather quickly. What I’m enjoying about this one is that it’s subtle in the right places and bold in others. Roasted notes are prominent, full bodied coffee and hazelnut. Hops are gone, but this has been in the cellar for 3 years now. Alcohol burn on the throat at the back end. This is a smooth drinking Imperial.
