2004 black with a tall tan head. Lots of roasty mocha aroma. Taste starts with a sweet chocolate character, finishing with a big coffee finish, very rich and roasty with a nice even bitterness. This is a very smooth stout with a good thickness to it.

Bottle from 2004. Pours with a thin orange colored head. Lots of bubbles stuck to the side of the glass in an otherwise black beer. Aroma is peachy with walnuts, sherry and some anise. The taste is a deep roasted coffee with notes of anise. It also has just a hint of a port wine. The roasted goodness lingers on the palate in a pleasant way. The mouthfeel is silky smooth with a hint of carbonation. A very well done stout that makes me rethink my enjoyment of the big Imperials. Thanks a lot to HeRftYDrF for first suggesting and then sending this in a trade.
