Snifter off of tap. Aroma of roast malt, dark chocolate, some whiskey. Midnight black, with a dark tan head. Huge flavor of whiskey aged oak, with lots of chocolate and sweet malts. Good beer from them, they are starting to get on quite the whiskey aged kick right now.

This was probably the best beer I’ve had from them. Aroma was nice. Strong roasted malt, black licorice with a hint of chocolate. Pour was perfect. Deep dark black with a thick and pillowy dark tan head. One of the best appearances I’ve ever seen. Taste was great also. Strong chocolate and burnt licorice but with a chocolatey aftertaste. This beer tastes like some of the big brewer’s EXCEPT for this off metallic aftertaste. It wasn’t strong enough to ruin the beer, but it hurt the score. Very nice.

Draught at the Church. Jet black pour with no head. Rich, winey, plummy aroma with lots of raisin...very nice! Flavor is also winey and malty but with more noticeable roasted coffee and dark chocolate particularly on the finish. Smooth and full bodied palate. Alcohol is well hidden. Outstanding Imperial Stout!

(draft @ Church Brew Works - Pittsburgh, PA) Pitch black pour with no head and very light carbonation. Aroma is huge and full of whiskey, oak, and vanilla notes. Flavor is much the same. Sweet and roasty at the start with a very solid whiskey and vanilla finish. Oak is present throughout. Really, really nice.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
This stuff was called ’MANYA’S" imperial stout. Cask conditioned and flat to the palate. Coal black and chocolate mousse head. Slight roasty impy stout aroma. Smells fairly attractive. Bitter and alky. Very strong and oppressive to an exrtent. Do you like your beer filtered through an old wet campfire? A little rude but this is the opinion of a lager lover. Very good example of the style.
