Thick and black as oil, this rich imperial stout is complex yet smooth. Rounded roastiness with flavor notes of coffee, chocolate and dark fruit dominate a intense explosion of flavor.

BlackForestCO (978) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - FEB 8, 2011
Bottle from miketd, thanks man. Poured a deep brown-black color with a moderate, tight tan head that faded to a thin layer and left some spotty lacing. Aroma of dark chocolate, nougat, espresso, a light roasted maltiness, a moderate dark fruitiness including light plum and fig, and even a touch of smoke. Smooth, sweet entry with some light hints of dark fruit (plum and dark cherry) that leads into a chocolate maltiness before giving way to a moderate roastiness that lingers lightly into the finish with more undertones of dark fruit that are paired with a soft smokiness that imparts a light dryness. Low carbonation and smooth, slick mouth feel that are offset somewhat by a light dryness on the finish. Overall, a really nicely crafted imperial stout where one aspect doesnít really dominate the flavor, but a number of good characteristics combine to create an exceptionally smooth, well balanced beer.

Roastiness is the first thing that I could think with this one...itís a thick roasted aroma that carries itself into the flavor very well. Very smooth with a big flavor. Very Good.
