Great imperial stout, not just strong round and complex. Very delicious aftertaste, toasted and slightly discrete coffee ...

750 ml bottle. Pours a very dark black, with a small dark reddish brown hue when backlit. Head was minimal, possibly due to a non aggressive pour. Aroma is massive: baker’s chocolate, coffee, and chocolate malt. Flavor is same with a rich creamy mouthfeel with a slight bitter lactic tang. A certain charred oak presence providing a pleasant smoky bitterness. From notes 1/22/11 (Geist BCBS Tasting).

Bottled 02/04/14. OK, been looking forward to this. Pours a very dark brown/black with a red edge. Aroma has booze, grass, tree bark, light cough medicine... Medium body, medium carbonation. There’s booze, light treacle, grass, nettle, wood, light coffee, dark choc... It’s a little harsh - I’d be curious to try an older bottle. That said, its really nice.

The beer was from the tap at Triangle Wine in Southern Pines. It pours black with a dark brown head. It has a strong coffee smell with a bit of chocolate. The taste is dominate by a rich, creamy taste of coffee with hints of chocolate.

Delicious. Bold but smooth. When you see 12% for a beer you may be turned off but the alcohol does not show to much. Toasted chocolate coffee make this a memorable beer. Very good.

(version 2011 ?) très puissant, très concentré en café, mais aussi beaucoup de fruits rouges et noirs dans le fond, très long.
