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.
