Black pour with a beige head. Aromas of roasted malts and cocoa. Big roasted malt flavors follow with notes of chocolate and coffee. Abv is well-hidden. Not quite as robust as I would have liked but still good.

Little thinner then I would have hoped but still a great stout. Lots of chocolate, lots of roast malt. It’s very good, more Atwater beers should be this good!

kramer (5499) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 28, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown with a one finger foamy beige head. The nose is rather sweet for an Imperial Stout with lots of chocolate and dark caramel. A lesser influence from the roasted malt. Lighter notes of licorice and alcohol. The flavor is equally sweet with a heavy vanilla component. Lots of caramel and milk chocolate sweetness, with the roastiness emerging on the finish along with a little alcohol. Medium bodied and rather smooth for the high ABV. It doesn’t mention vanilla anywhere on the bottle, but the flavor of it really dominates this and gets a bit tiring towards the end of the bottle,

jdb288 (584) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - FEB 28, 2014
Fresh bottle. Pours jet black with thin head. Slightly caramel bordering. Aroma is espresso, almond, some cocoa, anise. Light espresso flavor, faint chocolate. Alcohol is burning through here and leaving a bitterness on the palate.

DandyWolfFloyd (641) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 3, 2014
Pen & Paper Log (Aug 2012) Aroma - very roasty in the nose and full of espresso - you can tell it’s going to be burnt bitter Appearance - the is opaque black, with a tan head. Taste - is a very dark malt, not as big as it’s bite, some chocolate as well. Palate - body is full, texture is somewhat creamy, and the finish smooth.

Dark black pour with a thick tan head. Aroma is surprisingly light for a big beer, some soft milk chocolate notes a hint of maybe bread but hard to identify, the scents are complex and light lactose sugars and a touch of butter. Full well coated palate, so far I wouldn’t have though IS & 11% as it’s more subtle and softer. Flavor is lots of chocolates definitely milk and a lightly bitter cocoa powder finish some light hints of an earthy hop finish. Overall not at all what I expected, non traditional IS, but I still enjoyed it.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 30, 2013
On tap at HopCat. Clear brown with a thin taupe topper. Aroma is sweet with chocolate, cocoa powder and dark roasted malts. Taste hacked up and artificial, like someone dumped Hershey’s Diet Chocolate syrup in my beer. Sweet and a bit cloying with a chocolaty finish.

ROGUE (2152) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - SEP 18, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a deep, oily black color with a two finger bubbly, frothy foam head. Aroma has sweetness, dark chocolate and berry notes. Taste has a cola-like sweetness complemented by malts and touches of dark chocolate. A little alcohol is noticable in the finish. Oily with a heavy carbonation and a lighter body

on tap at the Mad Mex Robinson, dark brown pour, yes I didn’t see a black pour either. Sweet, spicey, maybe hint of coffee aroma. Definitely more mild than I thought it would be. Some coffee, spicy taste, thin feel for this style. As cheap would say "well behaved" for an impy brew. Strong medicinal finish. I thought this brew would have more complexity in it, but overall it is a decent brew.
