Teege (375) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 4, 2010
Pours black thick and opaque. Very roasty in the nose with some chocolate malts and mild coffee notes. Bitter roasty flavor with a hint of sweetness. Good stand to be a little thicker and creamier for an imperial stout, but overall not bad.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 12, 2009
Bottle sampled on 7/10/08: Pours a transparent dark mahogany with a wispy, spotty-lacing off-white head. Aroma of toasty dark caramel and a touch of milk chocolate. Body starts fairly full and earthy dark caramely sweet with nice milk chocolate and roasty coffee notes. Finishes drier, bittersweet and crisp with a touch of warmth. A pretty well-balanced imperial stout.
