sailracer (424) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 16, 2015
Tap. Pours a deep chocolate color with a smallish head. Very smooth taste up front with strong chocolate malt flavors. Not overly sweet yet it hides the alcohol content well. Smooth and easy to drink. Excellent overall.

puboflyons (2416) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 15, 2015
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle dated 09/17/2014. It pours dark brown to just about an opaque black. Small tan head that fades eventually. Rich chocolate malt aromas on the nose along with Chile peppers. Medium to full body. The taste starts out sweet and chocolate-like but it does not take long for the bitter bite and spicy peppers to kick in and linger at the finale. No booze at all for 9%.

ccex (1038) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 14, 2015
12 oz. bottle pours an opaque dark brown/black with thin but lingering mocha head that leaves good lacing. Aroma has chocolate, vanilla, roasted malts. Taste is on the sweet side with peppers and a hint of bitterness in the finish. Body is full with slight carbonation and a sticky, creamy mouthfeel. This one gets even better as it warms up. Not your typical Imperial Stout, but a very enjoyable one.

chucklemation (696) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - JAN 12, 2015
Pours a dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is heavy on chocolate with some roast. Flavor is sweet chocolate and roast, a little bitter. Has a dry finish with an almost gritty feel. Excellent.

AgentAle (993) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 7, 2015
Aroma is chocolate, toffee, dark sugar, rich malts and pale bitterness. Taste is roasty malts, caramel and toffee like the aromas. Finishes with a pale bitterness that doesn’t stick around. Appearance is black with thin beige head that retains fairly well.

cmacklin (363) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 4, 2015
12 fl. oz. bottle. Pours an opaque, black with a short lived, dark brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate and coffee. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, dark chocolate and a hint of vanilla with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Quite nice.

gripweed57 (911) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JAN 3, 2015
12 ounce bottle. Barely translucent brown color. Small foamy tan head. Roasted malt nose has a touch of cocoa. Flavor is rich and chewy, like a fudge brownie. Notes of cocoa, cinnamon and vanilla bean. Slightly resiny hops in finish. Complex and spicy, though no notes of chili peppers to speak of.

Lagerboy (1506) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 1, 2015
Bomber. Hueless dark brown, mocha foam fades fast. Aroma is dark roast, dark chocolate, spiced. Initially quite bitter, dark roasty chocolate malt, some cinnamon, vanilla, something spicy, sweetens and smooths out as it warms. Average carbonation, full bodied, lightly hopped. DNFL (Definitely Not For Lagerboys)

BrewTom (410) - - DEC 31, 2014
Dark chocolate & caramel tones on the nose. Toffee & nutty chocolate taste with the dark malts shining through to a subtle sweet finish & a slight chilli spice. Rated by BrewTom
