22 ounce bottle purchased at the Covell Nugget in Davis, CA. Can’t say I have ever heard of these brewers. The bottle was priced $9.99, so it better not be shit. Aroma is awkward...there is a solvent and cidery quality to it. Almost smells like acetone. There is also some burnt anise present. Mildly transparent dark brown body with a decent tan head that has good staying-power. Fine, bubbly lacing. Starts burnt with just a flash of sweetness. A touch of coffee is there. Finishes with a ton of ashy, highly bitter, medicinal black patent malts. All of the hops impart aspirin flavors, which is a real turnoff. Not enjoyable at all. The finish dominates this beer, which really fails to show me any quality craftsmanship. Another big, flawed, imperial beer that is just not good.

Poured from a 22 ounce bomber. Big roasted malt notes, ash, chocolate, woody. A nice imperial stout, dry finish, not overly sweet.

Thanks to koelschtrinker! The beer pours a deep black with a tan head. The smell is dark roasted malt, molasses. Taste is dry and roasty dark malt, dark fruit.

Kaffeeartiger Beginn, wenig alkoholisch, leichte Karamellnoten, insgesamt frisch und nett aber eher unsüffig. 9/11/11/11/5/11

"from notes (bomber)...big black heavy oily beer with tar like aspects...light smoke, riasins, chocolate, coffee. Bitter and semi sweet. Not bad, not best in class either. Hit the spot, though."

660ml bottle @ #h-J14, 19/06/14. Pours a dark brown, black with a good-sized, long-lasting, thick, latte-colored head. Aroma is roast, chocolate, some grapefruit. Taste is semi-dry, quite a lot of roast, a lot of coffee as well as citrus. Full and well-carbonated. Enjoyable.

maxwelldeux (3662) - Everett, Washington, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with a moderate light brown head on there. Nose is extremely roasty with some subtle licorice elements coming through on it. Taste is extremely roasty and fairly bitter, giving the stout a hefty bite to it. Really quite a nice beer.
