solar (190) - - APR 10, 2023
UPDATED: APR 10, 2023 As close to 55˚ as I could get it, 12 oz. bottle, 2023 vintage... nose on the bottle opening is sublime... dark fruit and smoke... cherry and honey. Mmm. Pours a viscous dark brown with modest tan head. Great looking rim and lacing. In the glass it presented a nose where the bourbon essence comes through. First taste was slightly astringent and sharp, the presence of 13.6% alcohol apparent. But then the story begins... leather, smoke, chocolate, fig, raisin, currant but most of all a leathery tobacco taste on the backside. Almost like a fine cigar. This is a bold, hefty, aggressive beer. Appearance is 10/10 with solid legs and excellent head retention. Not as smooth as anticipated, but a couple of years of storage would fix that! A world class imperial BBA stout deserving the highest praise.

4.6
chinhaez (437) - Ouray CO, Colorado, USA - FEB 9, 2023
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2023 12 oz bottle. 2019 vintage no 10. Pours a dark brown color with a small khaki colored head that slowly recedes to a fine film and ring. The aroma is strong with dark fruits, chocolates, and vanilla. The taste, like the aroma, is rich with dark fruits and chocolates in the forefront, and molasses, vanilla and bitter pecans filing in the back and sides. The palate is smooth and creamy with soft carbonation. Finishes medium in duration and slightly sweet. Overall: Top shelf shit y'all. Paired well with a robust Gouda cheese.

4.7
Samtzu (2135) - Palmerston North, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 8, 2023
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2023 2022 edition. Pours jet black with mild amounts of brown head. Soft nose full of roasted, dark, and specialty malts bringing chocolate, vanilla, cacao, and coffee. Full body with lighter carbonation and mild velvety notes. Rich forward with cacao, molasses, chocolate, vanilla, and soft coffee bitterness at the end. Hides it ABV extremely well. While I feel like I haven't described anything out of the usual for a Imperial stout this is just so well balanced and well crafted that it stands above many others.
