Terrible start with this bomber. The beer sounded like a champagne bottle when opened. I did a slow pour, and the head filled the ENTIRE pint glass (I had to scoop out the head with a soup spoon). Aromas of roasted, slightly burnt malts. Bitter taste, with hints of coffee. Not good. Not good at all.

22oz bottle. Not a gusher, but a slow creeper. Pours all head and takes a long time to settle down into some ídrinkableí. Chocolate, roast, and some coffee. Blah.

DiarmaidBHK (3387) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 27, 2013
Bottle from unknown place. Pours black with shitloads of overflowing khaki foam. Smells a bit like cocoa. Hard to know what it tastes like with all the goddamn foam. Lots of burned tart notes. Finishes eventually. Not good at all

Bottle. Wow, a gusher. Lost a few ounces upon opening. Pours dark brown, with an extremely large brown head. Aroma is chocolate, roasted malt, and some coffee. Flavor is roasted malt, chocolate, smoke, and coffee. Body is medium. I thought this was going to be infected, but it wasnít. Decent.

JStax (2857) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Poured from a 22 ounce bomber. Pours a dark brown to black with an enormous khaki colors head. Too large in fact. Aroma is sweet and almost chocolaty. Taste is predominantly sweet and on the verge of infection laden tartness. Not awful, but not something I would want to drink much of.

Ridiculous amount of head upon opening. Then the head never settled down throughout the 22 oz. pour - an hour between opening and finishing. When the head finally settled down, initial taste is almost espresso-like coffee, just a touch of bitter. Hops come out as the beer warms, but not too bitter. Hops and coffee taste throughout. Enjoyable...

LinusStick (2823) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 23, 2012
Blah. Pretty weak, boring and bland imperial stout. Aroma was actually decent. Roasted malt, milky and notes of coffee. Not very big but decent. Pour was a thick black with a thin tan film for a head. Taste was where this beer failed. It started with a muted chocolate/coffee flavor but then just disappeared. The beer seemed to turn to water after the swallow. The mouth was left bitter and a with a weird aftertaste. Iíve seen previous ratings saying the bottle may be infected. I donít know if the flavor is just that off or itís infected. Little carbonation.

decaturstevo (4958) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUL 31, 2012
Opague pour with tan head and lace. Aroma dominated by burnt coffee. Burnt astringent coffee and a bitter taste of pure cocoa. Sweet start with a hard malt bitter. Medium bodied but fizzy.

mike67 (775) - , New Jersey, USA - JUL 16, 2012
Bomber. Pours jet black with huge never ending, creamy, brown head. Aroma is of toasted malt, chocolate, and hints of vanilla and raisins. Body is medium, creamy and slightly crisp. Toasted, nutty malt, coffee, chocolate, burnt grain, earthy hops, vanilla and dark fruit fill the mouth. Finish is long and bitter. Not very complex or intense as other RISs but nice, easier to drink Imperial Stout.

Pours black with a medium dark tan head. Aroma has roasty dark fruits. Flavor is roasty with tobacco notes and dark fruit. Mouthfeel is light/medium...watery...and the finish has a cheap roasty fruity flavor. This is an awful impy...i would t ever try it again!
