4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an opaque black with tan 1 finger head that quickly dissipates with little lacing. Prominent roasted malt with very clear flavors of dark chocolate and background of espresso and a subtle hint of tobacco. Surprising hint of pine hops. Full bodied with medium carbonation (would be great on a nitrogen tap, I bet!) Long, medium bitter finish where I appreciate more tobacco and earthy tones. This is a fantastic stout that is not overwhelming in chocolate, but still the dominant idea put forth.

Surprisingly good chocolate beer from FlandersNed in Warren. He added this one in July 2012 and I received in December. Really nice chocolate pudding flavour, that went well with my chocolate brunch. Dark chocolate bodied with a nice head. Very drinkable. One of the better ones I have had from them.

Bottle from Bine & Vine. Pours dark brown/black with a slight dark tan foamy head. Aroma is sort of (to borrow from a rating below) chocolate milkshake. Near full bodied. Flavor is treacle, dark chocolate, dark malt. Itís sweet and bitter. Sort of goes bitter dark chocolate in the finish. Itís extremely tasty.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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, isnít 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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.
