Growler. Wow! Thanks b! Pours jet black with a dense and creamy dark tan head. Big heavy nose with soy sauce, liquorice, roast, and campfire. It’s everything at once. Creamy sticky thick body with soft carb. Roast, campfire, soy sauce, and anise on the mid palate. Long dark dry roasty finish. Quite good, no matter who it has clipped.

Massive imperial stout. But too sweet. I guess they needed to make it sweet to cover the alcohol. But Jesus, just globs of sweet. I still enjoyed this, which is an impressive feat. But overall it's too much.

Thanks, Aaron! Moderate roast and dark chocolate. Mild bitterness and booze in the background. Full bodied.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at 16 tons. Finally tracked this damn thing down.
A: Black metal with a very thin whisp of mocha head. Great staining legs.
N: A lot of thick fudge, chocolate, and a well blended espresso mix. Some lactose and caramel. There’s some leather and tobacco, which is faint, and black licorice. Some raisin, dark cherry and raspberry.
T: Smooth dark chocolate and coffee bitterness mixed with a non cloying sugary nature.
M: Slick and oily. Very heavy. Alcohol isn’t as potent as percent would suggest, though it is there.
O: A really solid beer that balances the hoppiness and malt with aplomb. I’m a Boneyard homer and I’m not ashamed.

Deep brown, clear, beige head. Aroma of chocolate, toffee, licorice. Flavor of big bready, toffee, chocolate malts, roast is very restrained. Big, chewy, tasty, very restrained roast for an imperial stout.

On draught at Roscoe’s Stout Summit 2/23/13. Caramel, chocolate aroma. Semi-sweet chocolate flavor. Warming effect, but not as intense as the 14% ABV would let on.

On tap. Black with a fluffy light brown head. Sweet dark chocolate and roasted grain aroma and taste with a mild bitterness, caramel, and light vanilla notes and finishing roasty and dry. Well hidden alcohol for a 14%. Full bodied somewhat sugary palate.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at E9. Dark brown pour with a rim of off-white head, leaving scattered lace. Nose is brown sugar, unsurprisingly. Heavy body and moderate carbonation. Brown sugar, chocolate, sugar molasses and...more sugar. Finish is...sugar. Very sweet, to be taken in small doses. ABV is nicely concealed, just a bit of warmth in the gullet betraying it.

Beautiful creamy tan head that last forever. Massive roasty-malt, bourbon, oak, aroma and flavor. Has some malt sweetness but also has a finish for being 14% ABV. Very rich, very drinkable. One of the best imperial stouts out there! Highly recommend!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at APEX, Portland - 06/11/12.
Pitch black with a dirty coffee head that soon thins.
Dark malts on the nose, sweet sugars, dark chocolate, molasses, liqourice.
Tastes of chocolate, roast malt, molasses, liqourice, dark fruit tones and boozey !
Full bodied with fine carbonation.
A big dirty beast of a beer, the booze is evident for all to taste, but well balanced and the whole 14% it packs is pretty well hidden!
Good stuff again from Boneyard.
