9/13/13. On tap at the brewery, nitro. Deep black pour, big brown head, full lacing. Rich aroma, huge milk chocolate, some roast, coffee, and lingering sweetness. Big rich sweetness in the flavor, lots of milk chocolate, just enough roasty coffee and ashy malts to balance. Nice.

Growler from Bunny in line at SARA. Aroma and flavor of the sweetest espresso nectar I've ever had! Wtf, crazy awesome beer. Light carbonation, but it's didn't even matter. Just amazing.

Shared by some nice guy at the Sawworks tasting room. Pours inky rich black with no head. This looks thicker than some motor oils I have seen when you swirl it around in the glass. This is quite possibly the thickest beer I have ever had. Nose is rich malts, roast, coffee, chocolate and other various complexities. Flavor is similar but explodes with fruity dark chili peppers. Wow and so dang thick and bitter acrid roast but good. I liked this one but not much more than a taster glass will do me just fine.

Pour from a growler shared by umr_urgefan- thanks again, Paul! Pours a deep brown, not quite opaque, with no head. Aroma of coffee, cacao nibs, roast, molasses, and earth. Flavor of coffee, chocolate, fudge, and molasses. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a dry, chocolaty mouthfeel. Has a somewhat gritty texture, as well, that really emphasizes the coffee beans here. Nice imperial stout.
