12 ounce bottle. Nice chocolate aroma. Lots of chocolate in the flavor. Not as good as Choklat or Chocolate Rain for sure.

Whoooooooaaaaaa. No reason for that. Pours dark black and allows some light on the edges and dons one finger of dark tan head. Nose is interesting, actually a heavy smoke component in there. Very peaty, Scotch notes. Some roast and bitter chocolate. Smoky flavor too, peat smoky like a Scotch. Weird. Some bakers chocolate in there. Medium bodied with a hint of heat. This one threw me for a loop.

12oz bottle poured into an English Pint at 40°. Color is black with easy carbonation and a thin tight tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and dark chocolate. It has a bold medium body that goes down with a smooth almost creamy mouth feel. Flavor of roasted mild coffee, dark baking chocolate and a touch of vanilla. After taste is sweet, the vanilla comes out a bit more and a hint of alcohol shows in the back. Overall its a good brew, maybe a little sweet in the end, but chocolate flavors show well.

JDBaker11058 (1359) - Maryland, USA - MAY 24, 2012
Appearance: silky black pour with a creamy tan head that quickly fizzes out to a collar. Aroma: milk chocolate, vanilla beans, clotted cream. Taste: malted milk balls (the candy), with loads of vanilla and sweet milk chocolate, along with a hint of coffee, maybe. Finish: slowly building lactic tang, fighting against the creamy sweetness. Notes: I love a chocolate stout, but this had almost too much of the sweet chocolate and vanilla notes. Would have benefited from a touch more bitterness, and some light roastiness. Finish had a slightly unpleasant note I can’t articulate.

Pours black with a large dark tan head. Scent is chocolate and vanilla. Taste is milkshake-creamy roasted malt and more chocolate and vanilla. Very smooth, milky sweet, light. Quite a pleasant beer.

Poured black with a medium-sized creamy light-tan head. Aroma has chocolate with some milk and vanilla. Taste is very smooth and creamy with chocolate and bitter roasted malts. Finish is slightly sweet with more vanilla. Overall very nice.

Aroma is roasted malts and an undercurrent of chocolate. The flavor is roasted malts, chocolate, a hint of cream and a fruit acidic/tart finish.

12 ounce bottle. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with about a half inch tan head that doesn’t stay around for too long. There’s a decent amount of lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, milk chocolate, and some dark fruit and coffee. The taste is pretty much just like the aroma, but there’s also the addition of some molasses. However, for a chocolate stout I was expecting more chocolate in the flavor. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s creamy and goes down easy. It’s a decent enough brew overall, I think it’s worth trying. Single bottle purchased from Liquor Barn.

Very nice chocolate aroma. Not too heavy on the palate. A decent offering that I would drink again, but have had some better choices.

talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 16, 2012
The pour is a very dark brown color with an average, pillowy, tan head which is mostly diminishing and leaves minimal lace. The nose is ashy, full of burnt toast, dark chocolate, light dried fruit, and a moderate roast. The flavor slightly better with more rich dark chocolate, some burnt caramels, burnt toast still, raisins, and a touch of coffee. The palate is more than medium, creamy, silky, and less than lively. The finish is rich and smooth with dark chocolate, raisins, and dark caramels. To call this one an imperial is ridiculous. But the flavor and mouthfeel actually made for a nice beer. Not bad but not great.
