Bomber. Somewhat light aroma of wood. Jet black appearance with nice tan head that lingers pretty well. Awesome blend of roastiness, chocolate, and just enough wood aging to meld in perfectly! Full bodied, with a creamy mouthfeel. Overall, a wonderful Imperial Stout! I love how the wood aging isnít overpowering, but rather adds a great depth to the flavor.

On tap at B&D. Black with dark brown highlights and small brown head. Aroma is roasty, medium/thick body, medium carbonation, and thin small-bubble lacing. Taste is nice milk chocolate and some roast. Pretty good sweet stout.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle purchased at 7-11 Kittery, ME. Black pour with some decent tan head, spotty lace down the sides. Aroma is light chocolate candy bar, mild roasted malt, sweet burnt sugar.
Flavor is very respectable. Cocoa /chocolate right upfront turning into an ashy roast. The finish gives a hint of vanilla with sweet lactose sugar giving a coffee creamer essence. Secondary mild roast in the background. The body is medium with a decent creamy texture. Honestly for the price this a nice stout. And Iím ALL about getting good craft for a decent price. Well worth a bottle or three.

[Tap] Jet black pour with a khaki colored head. Sweet nose of milk chocolate, cream and a decent amount of coffee. Chocolate syrup, lactose, vanilla and nice charred malty notes in the taste. Silky mouthfeel. Light alcoholic notes in the finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black pour with a thin tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roast, roasted nuts, a little leather, earth and some pine. Flavor is dark chocolate, roast, light woody notes, earthy leaves, light leather, a little woody char, dry toasted oats, cooked dark fruit, sweet caramel malt, turbinado sugar, a hint of pine and grassy hops. Heavy body, creamy to goopy feel (definitely has the feel of something with lots of oats), light, but sharp, blanketing carbonation. Really tasty stuff, very heavy, filling feel for a 7.2% stout, not sure Iíd count thatís as a positive or negative. I like it quite a bit.

Art & Antiques in Shiner, TX. Bottle poured into pint glass. Pours caramel black with a strong khaki head that lingers. Smells of rich milk chocolate and a touch of malt. Flavor is the same - smooth and creamy. Great taste for the ABV. Would drink again.

Wonderful. Sweetness, getting some milkiness (cream?) as well. Solid, not particularly roasty stout base. Incredible flavor for the ABV.
