Big thanks to Christian for hooking me up with a flip top of this gem from the PNW. All kinds of flavors running around in here: burnt molasses, black liquorish, sweet smoke, dark roasted malts. WOW. Really impressive. Gotta make it out to WA and try this bad boy on tap....

Been waiting a long time to try this one. No light penetration whatsoever, this is black as stouts come. Small dark brown head. Nose is as complex as I expect the flavor to be. Lots of dried dark fruits, some roasted coffee and vanilla as in oakiness. Thick and sweet mouthfeel, with big notes of espresso, and heavy dark chocolate and cocoa. Sits nicely on the palate without being overwhelming for the amount of alcohol is perfectly masked for being 12.7%

On Tap at the Brewpub. Pitch black and viscous. Modest tan head and coarse sheeting lacing. Dark roasted malts in the aroma along with sweet pitted fruit and purple grapes. Thick oily palate and modest carvonation propels the malty sweetness over the toungue. Sweet daek roast flavors with remaekably little balancing bitterness. This its only drawback, minor as it may be. Finish is quick and soft. Only a slight bitter trailer. Glad to have finally had this one. Lives up to the hype.

09.29.05 GABF Near black, pretty stuff without romanticizing, even for an impy stout. Aromas are huge, and it doensít take but two samples to realize this is world class. Rich and deep with huge dark fruits, dried mission figs in steel aged port, and bigtime dark chocolate. Flavors in line with aroms with the addition of chewy tobacco, and by chewy, I mean chewing. This stuff reminds me of some juicy plug. Símores and smoke round it out. Wow. Palate is rich and coating without being too sticky or too oily. Excellent stuff, great heads up to whoever pointed me towards Walking Man.

TAR (2518) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - OCT 23, 2005
Draft: Opaque black. Creamy light-cinnamon head. Assertive scents of charred caramel and malt. Fruity, as well, with dates, plums, and caramelized custard. Voluptuously thick in body. Dry and somewhat fuzzy. Brisk commencement of scratchy minerals over an acrid burnt malt base. Though the maint medicinal twinge is faint and short lived, it displaces the nuanced roast. Touch of blackberry softness gracefully accompanies the piquant black malt sting, but esters are lacking for the most part. Meaty in the center with notes of port and smoke. Finishes light on its feet but elegantly complex with an everlasting sensation of ashy dryness and musty concrete which prolong the astringent burnt cookie aftertaste. Very nice take on the style.

GABF 2005. Black body with rusty highlights and a creamy tan head with good duration. Nice aroma of toffee, rich chocolate, mocha, and plums. Great range and balance. Flavor is like a high quality liqueur with mild dark fruit and coffee and acidity, medium bitterness, and a pleasing, long finish and aftertaste. Excellent imperial stout.

On tap at the Dog and Pony in Renton. Pours and opaque black with a brown head. Coffee and vanilla aroma. Full creamy body with light carbonation. Is there something more than full body? Sweet, almost syrupy taste with chocolate, vanilla, nuts, dark fruit and roasty malt. Pretty clean finish, given all thatís going on in the taste.

Fluffy off-white greyish head with a deep and slightly reddish opaque black body. Bright, alcoholic aroma with obvious chocolate, coffee, and other rich notes. Dry and delectable. Grrreat!
