May be infected bottle. Super foamy with the typical pillow heady stuff so no real aroma. Buteric citric acid tast going on. May be old bottle. Will try on tap when I can find it.

Foam gusher, sour roast no creaminess nothing going on except pure big foam pillow head. Possible infection. Still didn’t see any potential to get again.

Pours a deep brown color with a roasted malt aroma. Taste is a rich dark roasted malt flavor, a good bitterness in the first mouthful, with a hint of cinnamon after the swallow. The bitterness lingers along the palate and leaves a malty film on the tongue.

Rich creamy tan head, lots of lacing on the mug, cinnamon aroma and nicely roast malt flavor. Went down very favorably, received as Christmas gift from wife but would definitely purchase and enjoy again. Alcohol content was up there so would only drink 1, a meal in a glass so to speak.

Pretty decent stout, nice roast, great mouthfeel. Would have been way better but had a tinge of sourness to it. May be intentional but took me off a bit. Have not had on tap so it may be better. Worth a try!

Oh ok but that’s it...nothing bad...just oh hum....would have rated it better as a regular stout...slight roast, slight warmth, not much body in the imp stout category...take it or leave it.

Black pour with a tan head. The aroma is full of chocolate, booze and dark fruit. The flavor is more of the same. I get a ton of chocolate and roasted malt notes. High carbonation and medium mouthfeel.
