Pours deep brown, no head. Nose is caramel, salt, beef broth, olives. Slight smoke, rather liquid smoky. There is some resinous hops. Flavor is sweet and bitter at the same time. Strangely watery mouthfeel for such a big beer. Meh.

Bottle. Pours a black color with tan head. Roasty, chocolate, oak aromas. Burnt, roasty, chocolate flavors. Iíve never been a fan of Cathedral Square, but I was quite surprised by how good this one was.

Once poured, this beer is black as sin with a medium tan head, and the aroma fuses the strong scent of roasted malts and a subtle undercurrent of wood fire. The taste is quite umami, mildly sweet, and slightly bitter, which makes your mouth muscles pucker ever so slightly with pleasure; furthermore, the palate combines a medium body, thick texture (the two of which in combination make for a very complex mouthfeel, especially once the umami is factored into the equation), soft carbonation, and a long and slight bitter finish.

One of St. louis best local imperial stouts. Thick and creamy, roasted flavors but not smokey, and a good alcoholic bite. Great price.

Sampled on tap at the 2nd annual Urban Chestnut Wolpertinger party in a dimple mug. It poured an opaque, nearly black colour with fluffy beige foam and lace. True-to-style stout aromas and flavors: malty, bready, toasty, roasty, fruity, caramelly, low hops. Elevated alcohol, warming but not harsh. Medium-heavy body, lower than average carbonation, lingering tart and toasty aftertaste. Good, not great.

Bomber from Secret Santa jmagnus - thanks, dude! Wow, drinks pretty light for 10%. Hefty body, with LOTS of carbonation. Chocolate, mild tartness, and hints of anise in the nose. Rich and chocolatey flavors, with healthy amounts of roasted malts, and maintaining the anise/tartness intersection. Solid RIS.
