Growler sample during RBWG. Pours dark brown to black in color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, chocolate, earthy bitterness and some dark fruit. Basic RIS that hides the abv nicely.

Growler to taster at RBWG (shared by jcwattsrugger). Looks good; an opaque chocolate with thin beige lacing and soft carbonation. Smells of dark malt, chocolate, and light roast. Tastes like it smells with what seems to be some pepper notes as well. Solid on the palate. Enjoyable.

750ml. Black color. Thin light brown head. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Lightly crisp carbonation. Lightly slick. Some good dark chocolate flavor. Some cola, bigger roast. Big roast barely, kind of dominates the flavor. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter. Solid imperial stout.
