hopscotch (10265) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 26, 2010
Bottle... Tar black ale with a mid-sized, creamy, mushroom-colored head. Great retention. The rich, roasted bouquet is a mélange of molasses, licorice, sassafras and cola. Full-bodied with a silky, buttery mouthfeel and zippy carbonation. The flavor is a deeply roasted, fairly bitter blend of licorice, blackstrap molasses and charcoal. Lengthy, bitter, blackstrap finish. Bottle courtesy of dosbeerigos!

BarZigKin (511) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - NOV 14, 2010
Sampled at a Freetail release, bottle share. Pours near black with just a bit of off-white head. Nose is bittersweet chocolate, some smoke, roasty and a bit of alcohol. Flavors follow the nose and is meaty (smoke related?), fresh coffee and a nice lingering coffee (and some hops) bitter finish. Medium to full mouthfeel.

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.
Black body with a tan head. Lots of chocolate malt and a good dollop of fruit. Slight soy and a good amount of alcohol showing. Faint spice and coffee in the finish. Ok, just a little basic.

wavers1 (915) - 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.
