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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep dark brown coloured body with a muddy and ruby tint at the bottom and a thinnish, one centimetre tall light brown head. Aroma of earth, roasted malt, cream, caramel and tons of dough and yeast. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong creamy and milky flavour with a lot of earth and caramel notes, some light roasted malt and egg flavour and a hint of vanilla - but a lot of yeast still. Aftertaste shows a lot of sugars and body with a nice subdued cherry and light fruit flavour. Overall, this is a nice beer and all about the body and creamy milky flavour - which shows well, if you can get past the oblique yeastie and bread flavour/smell. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in McLean, Virginia on 02-April-2013 for US$2.69 sampled at home in Washington on 16-April-2013.
