Bottle. Dark black body off white head some lacing good retention. Aroma of roasted malts. Taste is coffee maybe a hint of dark chocolate. Not the most complex imperial stout, but a decent one. Not bad.

BOSSbrewer (2706) - Arkansas, USA - APR 15, 2015
Bottle shared at porch nite with Raith, Brisben, Breck. Pours dark brown with one finger of tan head. Aroma is roast barley and pine. Flavor is fairly bitter and roasty. No caramel, dark fruits. Just roast and fairly bitter. Too much so. Drinkable. Lighter bodied as well. Finishes dry and bitter.

csaso (1958) - Missouri, USA - JAN 7, 2015
Bottle - very big tan foamy head, pitch black color, very toasty malt aroma and flavor, some kind of weird off hop flavor (maybe an old bottle?), takes away from the overall beer though ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

robbienate (113) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 12, 2014
Pours black with almost 3 fingers of dark tan head. Aroma is strongly milk chocolate with a little bit of caramel and some sprucy hops. Taste is medium bitter. Lots of dark coffee with chocolate and spruce. Medium bodied with a somewhat oily yet thick texture. Lively carbonation and a very long, very bitter finish. Overall, Im really digging this beer. Probably the best beer offered from Cathedral Square.

Bottle to goblet Loads of milk, rancid milk, diacetal. I cant imagine that this is supposed to be like this. Black...tan head. Disgusting curdled milk, some coffee/chocolate.
