Bottle thanks to the BeerSommeliar. Big thick black pour with a thick tan head. Dry roasted grain, chocolate aroma. Lots of chocolate, some smokiness, medium thick body and a nice hoppy bite somewhere in there. Tasty brew, would like to age it a bit.

A Mes rate. Bottle at Chris O’s "Has anyone seen my stool?" tasting.

wavers1 (877) - Notown, California, USA - AUG 28, 2010
2010 bottle courtesy of moejuck, thanks homie! been wanting to try the regualar version before i break into the ba versions, and i thi nk i am in for a treat, as this itself is a treat. thick brown pour with a nice head and slight cascading after a sip. the aroma and taste are very meaty, peaty, smokey, big and chiwy all the way around. the mouth feel is to match, with an oily beef jerky like finish and aftertaste. this is a pretty good imperial stout with a lot of big arts on it, but its more refined than dl 09-10 and the likes. good stuff.

Aroma is coffee beans and black olive tapenade with hints of cinnamon. Medium sweet, with a nice bitter backbone from the dark roast and hops and a good bit of smokiness in the finish.

Sean9689 (277) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 19, 2010
22oz bomber shared at our Epic Chicago Tasting and poured into BA taster. A - Pours black, very little head, thing ring, no lacing. S - Dark fruits, chocolate, hot alcohol. The alcohol here was a little too much for me. T - Same as nose...too much alcohol...not hidden well at all. Dark fruits, chocolate, some spice, brown sugars. M - Light to medium, not as much body as I was expecting with a slightly dry finish. D - Meh. Average, at best. Way better stouts right down the street at any Binny’s.
