Bottle @ Brugmansia/Fonefan US Tasting, April 2010. Pours black with a small creamy beige head and lacings. Nose is cold coffee, roast and chocolate. Lively carbonation. Medium and smooth palate.. Taste is cold hard roasted coffee and chocolate.The high level of carbonation is a bit disturbing. Still a very fine and tasty Imp. Stout.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 14, 2010
750mL bottle at the brewpub. Pours almost black, but not completely opaque, with a big fluffy tan head that recedes very quickly and leaves almost no collar and little lacing. The aroma is still predominantly the underlying Thor, with the heavily roasted dark malts, roasted coffee and hints of Belgian yeast. The rum is present but not overpowering - the spicy oak is almost more noticeable than the rum. So that’s where the rum went. There is much more rum in the taste, though the chocolate malts and coffee are still fighting through. The finish is where things start to swing toward the oak and rum, much more so than the aroma would suggest. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with soft carbonation and much drier than the original beer due to the oak. I enjoyed this one more slightly more than the Cowboy Thor and I think the rum really adds some complexity. Tasted like a chocolate covered rum cake.
