joeneugs (4453) - Livermore, California, USA - FEB 2, 2013
On tap at Beer Revolution. It pours black with a tan head. The aroma has lots of black cherry, raisins, blueberry, cocoa and roasted malt. The flavor is black cherry, cola, dark chocolate and roasty toasty malts. Very nice velvety mouthfeel. I would have called this an imperial stout, although a very weird one with lots of dark berry flavors. A very enjoyable sipper to say the least.

On tap at City Beer, Pours dark brown with a thin tan head and a chocolate and treacle aroma. There is a smoky chocolate flavor with a dry finish. Very tasty but a bit too smoky.

brokensail (13757) - Orange County, California, USA - DEC 12, 2012
Dark brown pour with an off-white head. Nose is quite roasty with some dark chocolate and coffee notes. A bit of metal and slightly tart. Quite heavy on the char, too. Not much sweetness to the aroma of flavor. Tastes a bit smoky. Lots of char, roasted malt, and dark chocolate. Hints of metal, coffee, and chalk.

On tap at Small Bar, San Diego. Rating as a Russian Imperial Stout, not an American Strong Ale. Aroma: Nose is bourbon, oak, vanilla, yeast. Appearance: Black pour, thin tan head, good lace. Taste: Nicely muted bourbon flavor, vanilla, cocoa, a little earthy. Palate: Medium-full, nicely carbonated for the style. Overall: Really good. I was a little leery after catching the bourbon nose, but this was really well crafted, the bourbon nose accentuating the base stout without overwhelming it as many of these do.

On tap at Stone. Dark porter appearance. Tastes wonderfully of coconut along with the bitter sweetness. Rich and nice.

elihapa (1533) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - NOV 18, 2010
11/12/10 notes: Pours dark brown with a tan head. Sweet malts, molasses, milk chocolate, red cherry and almond mascarpone swirl on the nose in this this unusual fall strong ale. It is sweet, roasted, full and dry at once. The key here is dark chocolate and brandied sweet fruit at play against a lush mouthfeel. Solid, even if its not my favorite blend.

Patrick and Mark, thanks again! Who wouldn’t enjoy a Halloween beer branded with the name ’Edgar’ after Edgar Allen Poe! This was a dark mahogany, bordering onyx brew with a sizable latte colored head. Ominous to say the least. The aroma showed rich Godiva chocolate, freshly brewed Starbucks, light char, brown sugar, tobacco, and leather. Flavor is intense with Hershey’s syrup, molasses, burnt caramel, vanilla, and even a little wood. Don’t think this one is barrel-aged but definitely exhibits some of it’s finer qualities. Nice velvety texture...creamy and luxurious. This is an amazing beer that I so wish was distributed in AZ!

Draft. Blackish beer with a tan head. Rich toffee and molasses aroma. Flavor of molasses, toffee, light smoke, and chocolate. Medium bodied. Molasses and light smoke lingers with chocolate.
