This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy light brown colored bubbles that were and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque except at the edges dark black brown colored body and an excellent lacing. The mild aroma was medicinal and dark malt. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish with a strong dark malt aftertaste. The yummy flavor contained notes of mildly vinous mild hops burnt malt and dark malt. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

Bottle courtesy of "AKFaust". Colour...basic black with a thin head. Nose...roasted nuts and dark chocolate. Palate...a bit thin but then cafe au lait hits and dark Dutch chocolate follows. Mid palate is loaded with Tootsie Rolls and soapy anise and fennel. The finish is supple, tangy and loaded with licorice.

The aroma is full but not overpowering. At first taste it is very malty and smooth but finishes with a sweet and bitter taste. It is a very pleasant beer that is easy to drink but can get you in trouble quickly

Bottle shared with koleminer20, out of Dumpster Day box #1. Because I think he hates me. Aroma is light, bready, dry, mocha, chocolate, roasted malt. Appearance is brown, light tan head, poured incredibly thin. Taste is just like Vanilla Java Porter, only slightly more flavor. Vanilla, chocolate, biscuit, all light and not good. Mouthfeel is medium body and light carbonation, with a mostly bready aftertaste. Overall, god damn. The people who work great really should consider new careers, they arenít good at making beer.

12 oz bottle shared with ebone1988. This is from Dumpster Box No. 1. The pour is a thin brown with a frothy thin and light head with a couple spots of lace. The aroma is decent, but really thin. There is a light chocolate and carries a decent mocha tendency. A light booze is present on the back end. It's sweet and smells a lot better than I know it will be. The flavor is full of vanilla and chocolate with a light sweet metallic finish. The mouth feel is terrible. Really thin and light with a strong lack of carbonation and a lingeringly sweet mocha finish. This could be decent if it weren't like latte water. Atwater fails again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a very dark brown almost black with a huge creamy and foamy tan head. The foam was almost volcanic and took a long time to dissipate. Nice malt and nutty aroma but not too strong. Medium body, not too oily or clingy. Fairly smooth with the roasted flavor hitting only the sides of the tongue. The taste lingers a bit then its gone. It hides the alcohol well. Not harsh or bitter. Not the best Stout Iíve had but far from the worst. OK but flavor is pretty one dimensional.

bottle - pours near black with a tan head. It has a dark roast malt and chocolate aroma. Roast malt and chocolate flavor... itís got a full body though not as full as some in this style. Very good.

DenverLogan (1100) - MileHi, Colorado, USA - JUL 13, 2015
From a 12 oz bottle into a Diebolt tulip glass. Pours near black with head and lace. Aroma of roasty malts and milk chocolate, tropical fruit rind. Significant carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of dark roasted malts, burnt malts, dark chocolate, vanilla, tobacco. Overall big, bold, rich, flavorful, complex, a tad odd but tasty.

Beerathon (1683) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 19, 2015
Black pour with semi-creamy khaki head and lacing. Big chocolate notes, roasted malts, some boozy sweetness. Doesnít really remind me of an Imperial Stout, especially not an 11% one, but itís decent enough.
