Bitter chocolate , roasted malt and some sweetness make up the aroma. Everything you want. Nearly perfection. Black with a white brown head that is a bit bouncy leaving thick lacing immediately. Taste is creamy slightly bitter roast chocolate, some dark fruits hidden in the back end making for a more vivid and intricate expression.

Pours like ink with a thin dark tan head. Aroma is sweet chocolate and dark fruits. Heavy beer with a sweet dark fruit and chocolate taste on the tongue. This beer is way too sweet for my taste.

Too much of toasted and alcohol for me. I know it is an imperial stout, but I’ve have others and don’t feel this way.

Tap. Sour taste. Good chocolate notes but a hint of sour apple. Not a 100 point beer in my mind.

12 oz bottle. Tasted on 12/14/14. Bottle from Total Wine Lewisville, TX. Pours to a deep black color with a thin dark tan head. The aroma has roasted grains, light chocolate & licorice. The taste had very little chocolate for me & had more dark fruits & licorice. Overall good & was definitely better as it warmed up more.

An outstanding RIS. Cracked open a bottle from 2012, was hot back upon release but has mellowed into an exceptional blend of chocolate and roasted notes. A little smoke caps this off. Comes together wonderfully, and lives up to the fantastic, jet black appearance from the bottle pour. Mouthfeel is suitably decadent - this is a high quality confection in a glass.

Smell is faint malty sweetness with a bit of coffee. Taste is a mildly roasty stout with some dark chocolate taste at the end. Medium body with medium carbonation.
