I am a light weight and just a taste lit me for the night. The taste is alcohol and bitter.

GABF 2007. Pitch black, viscous pour with a thick layer of tan head. Rather sweet aroma of caramels and bourbon blend with some spicy fig-like dark fruits and some dark chocolate. Mildly roasty, but the sweetness dominates the nose. A bit of additional roast bitterness could actually help smooth out some of the malt aromas, as the sweetness is a bit strong. Full bodied, chewy mouthfeel with a creamy texture and carbonation. A bit of brown sugar sweetness at first on the tongue, and then develops some nice prune/dark fruit flavors mid-palate. A bit of bourbon caramel sweetness lingers in the finish. Could use a bit more roast character to balance out the flavors, and far too sticky sweet for my preference.

Dark, dark, brown. Anise and a bit of coffee in the aroma. A touch of ash. The flavor is atually a little thin.

4/12/10 by way of dakine. thick pour. brownish black with a small tannish head. alcohol is up front and burns the snout quite a bit... past that are notes of chocolate, roast, vanilla, molasses, prunes, wood and lots of florals from the booze. the flavor is the same... oddly dull though the body is full and slick. 6/4/6/4/14/3.4

Opaque black with a small tan head. This might shock everyone but it smelled like choclate, coffee, caramel, et al... The flavor was, shockingly, much the same. Some hot alcohol creeps in maiking things, ummm, more lively. Full bodied with an alcohol burn. Yet another Imperial Stout.
