Brouwerij (915) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 13, 2013
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a finger of light brown head, settles quickly with minimal lacing. Aroma is chocolatey, roasted malt, dark malt, sweet, roasted oatmeal, moderate alcohol. Flavor is dark malt, chocolate, sweet (lactose), slightly nutty, with a mild to moderate alcohol finish. Mellow chocolate and sweet throughout. Alcohol could be better masked, isn’t that high of ABV but manages to come across a little boozy. But I might have drank it a little warm for a sweet stout. Soft carbonation, medium body, smooth texture, and a mildly warming finish.

Draft. Really well beer all the way from start to finish. Complex malt aroma on the palate as well. Nice hint of chocolate.

nuplastikk (4299) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 2, 2013
12oz bottle. Imperial at 7.2%? Brown-black body, ruby red edges. Oily beige head fades aways. Creamy, smooth and sweet. Lots of milk chocolate, cocoa tones, milkshake. Clean on the palate, not much bitterness at all. Pretty straightforward, but well executed and enjoyable.

On tap half pint at Gilly's Craft Beer & Wine in Rockville, MD. Opaque black-brown with a tan head and very good lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and bread dough. Taste of roasted malt, chocolate and brown bread. Medium body and medium carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ccex (908) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 30, 2013
12 oz bottle pours an opaque dark brown/black with a moderate but evanescent tan head and good rings of lacing. Aroma has chocolate, roasted malts, cream and oatmeal. Body is medium to full.with only slight carbonation. Taste is sweet all the way through with the roasted malts dominating the finish. Mouthfeel is creamy. One of the better beers from Breckenridge. Not a bad stout, but not one of the great ones, and certainly not an Imperial Stout, despite the name and cool picture.

keepersj12 (2664) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - APR 29, 2013
Aroma of roast malt and chocolate. Flavor is sweet with a good amount of chocolate. Kind of a dessert beer. Might go well with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

kidmartinek (3560) - austin, Texas, USA - APR 22, 2013
Pretty boring. Black. Frothy tan head. Weak milky cocoa aroma and flavor. I guess by itself its not that bad but in a sea of 1000s of beers I can think of too many others I’d rather drink.

artmcd8 (1548) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 21, 2013
Bottle thanks to my friend Tony in a case bottle swap. Pours black with a slight tan head. Roasty aroma, dark chocolate and coffee. Bitter sweet taste with a slightly dry aftertaste for a cream stout. Lacing falls down the glass as it empties. Thicker than usual mouth feel for Breckenridge brews.
