This is another Abbey Brewing Co. house recipe. This stout is deep black in color and has chocolate, coffee, roasted toffee and anise flavors.

Also known as Father Rolando’s Imperial Stout.

Tap at the brewpub. Dark pour. Aroma and flavor of anise, chocolate and what seemed to me like cocoa nibs. Body was lighter for an imperial stout. Not the most complex imperial stout, but I still liked it.

A dark body some head. Generous pour and good price point. (bonus one point) Tasty sweet roasty, but more on the nice malty side that I enjoy in imperial stouts. Nice beer. abv well masked.

Anis, caramel, chocolat et une légère fûmée dans un corps plutôt moyen. Buvabilité honnête.

Noire et opaque, un mince col mousseux brunâtre se fait discret. Des flaveurs de chocolat noir, de céréales grillées et d’alcool sont en vedette, une petite finale de réglisse noire est également perceptible. Bonne, mais, tout comme leur Quad, je l’aurais préféré plus "cochonne".

Tap at brewery. Pours opaque with fizzy tan head. Aroma is roasted and chocolate malts, light earthiness and coffee, and faint prunes. Flavor is dry roasted notes, milk chocolate, some dark fruit sweetness, and light coffee bitterness; dry, roasted finish. Medium body and low carbonation.

50belair (2525) - Florida, USA - DEC 23, 2013
On tap at the Abbey. Dark brown pour with a dark kaki head. No real aroma. Mild black coffee, mellow toffee, and anise (big presence). Decent body and mouthfeel.

March 2013. Sampled at the brewery. Pours black with a tan head. Roasted malt aromas, coffee, chocolate, caramel. Bitter finish from the hops. not bad at all.

Taste like other beers with yeast dominance. Chalky bitterness not impressed at all. Seems off but seems just the house yeast. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chinchill (2283) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 18, 2013
Pint on tap at brewpub. Clear but very dark brown, with a fine tan head that did not last as long as I hoped. Plenty of chocolate in the nose plus coffee.still not as highly aromatic as one might hope. The flavor is richer and better, albeit a shade towards the light side, and toward sweet, for this style. M: medium-full body with low carbonation. Slightly more astringent than ideal.
