Bay leaves, spiced, chocolate, wood aging rum. Oily texture. Sweet chocolate starts, licorice and a very big burn towards the end. Heat donates from there on. Too much? I think so. (Zeebra)

Big thanks to Leighton for muelling me the remainding 1/4 bottle or so from a previous weeks tasting. 22/04/13 @CBC, Londres. Dark black with a very thin tan head that dissipates edgeward as bubbles. Nose is dark malt, marmite, booze, dark fruits, black forest gateux, demerara sugars, light smoke. Taste comprises roast malt, bitter dark chocolate, dark fruits, molasses, leather, treacle toffee, very rich in flavour and on the sweet side, however it holds together well to remain drinkable. Full bodied with moderate carbonation, slightly cloying, warming alcohol in the finish. Good stuff, again one to share between many but very drinkable for such a high ABV.

djd07 (5031) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 2, 2013
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with medium tan head that lasts awhile leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is strong chocolate, wood, booze, and vanilla. Thin mouthfeel with very strong cocoa nibs flavor, vanilla, and roast. Alcohol present as it warms, but not overpowering. Really enjoyed this one, a very impressive imperial stout from the Bruery.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Bottle for rating #4800.   Big thanks to 50belair for the trade!   Nearly black, deep deep cola, thin whispy tannish head, sparce vinous like lacing.   Looks like an aged stout in its pour and appearance.   Big port/cognac/sherry nose, chocolate, caramel, faint vanilla on the nose.   Smells big, very big, and alcoholic.   Very warming up front, port/cognac like at first.   Deep chocolate emerges in the middle, with a dash of vanilla towards the back.   Sweet, almost syrupy, and thankfully not cloying.   This is a sipper!   A bit of chocolate graham cracker and dark pitted fruit really emerge as it warms.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Warming finish, lingering heat, cognac/sherry, with sweet dark chocolate, figs, dates, prunes, and raisins.   Great stuff, and a tad better than an already good beer, Black Tuesday.   Thanks again Matt!

Bottle. Chocolate, ash and alcohol aroma. Black with small head. Sweet chocolate syrup malt and moderately bitter herbal hops flavor. Moderately alcoholic finish. Nice dessert drink (went well with a Little Debbie’s Dunking Stick).
