Bottle thanks to a trade! Pours black with a creamy tan head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has a nice note of vanilla and marshmallow with sweet dark grains and a touch of roasted malts. Flavor is similar with marshmallow throughout, light vanilla and a backbone of dark grains and roasted malts.

bottle. Black with small head. Surprisingly thin for an imperial stout, but it works. Big chocolate flavor and light alcohol warmth. Very nice.

Way too much licorice in this beer. Has a really nice appearance, tons of offwhite head, but the flavor is off. Picked this up in Grand Rapids in 2013.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
on tap at the bocktown robinson, very nice place. dark brown but not black. sweet spicey aroma. more mild initially than I thot it would be. some coffee in the but mostly there is this spice thing happening. fairly flat. better than expecting, thot it would be an impy stout but it is much more behaved. some medicinal linger on the finish. not impressed yet I was not insulted. so, I guess its an ok beer.

Sample at the Big Tap In on 04/20/2013. Opaque brown-black pour with a medium khaki head that recedes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of chocolate, malt and hops. Full-bodied with flavors of earthy malt, chocolate and mild hops. The finish is malty and sweet with a cocoa aftertaste. Above average overall.
