Bottle from Beer Monger, Portland
Dark brown color with small head. Moderate expected Imperial Stout aroma with light apple and dust touch. Smooth, low sweetness, roasted malt flavor but also chocolate, astringent in the end.
Nice, but not special.

Ughsmash (7361) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 13, 2015
Thanks to John for sharing! Poured black with a colossal, quick-forming khaki head. The aroma picked up sour nutty and biscuity notes paired with vanilla and a little cocoa. The flavor found bitter, burnt cocoa and sour lactic notes.. roasty, bitter, and a bit sour on the finish. Medium-bodied and it seemed infected.. bummer.

mcberko (9323) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 15, 2015
650mL bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out roasted malts, some coal, and earthy notes. Flavour is fairly harsh, with notes of roasted malt, coconut, cocoa, coal and earthy notes. Not the most cohesive impie stout, but itís nice enough. Some harsh edges, but decent.

swanmann (665) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 7, 2015
Bottle: Nearly black pour with tan, almost orange hued foam, settling eventually. It smells a bit of booze, espresso. Flavor is the same. Itís not too complex but itís good. The alcohol is well hidden. Itís just thick enough, very smooth.

daknole (10279) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 31, 2014
Nearly black in color, brown head. Standard fare here. Roasty, lightly dry, bitter chocolate, espresso, molasses, burned sugar.

drfabulous (4791) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - OCT 25, 2014
22 ounce bottle from Lectvay in local for local swap. Creamy chocolate flavor with cocoa and some lactose (even if not intended). Hides the ABV. Very nice.

djd07 (6034) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 30, 2014
Bottle during RBWG. Pours a very dark brown with small beige head that lasts. The aroma is strong coffee bean, chocolate, roast. Medium mouthfeel with nice roast, dark chocolate, sweet finish, nice.

Ernest (6723) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Draft. Head is initially small, mostly diminishing. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is moderately malty (chocolate, caramel, roasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers), with notes of black cherry, vanilla. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium to full body, syrupy texture, soft carbonation, moderately alcoholic. Too sweet, as with so many American imperial stouts. Mostly standard nose but some fruitiness admittedly adds appeal.

maxwelldeux (4164) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - MAY 9, 2014
Bottle. Pours an extremely thick near black color that reminds you of motor oil, and has a moderate light brown head on it. Nose is slightly sour, with some dark fruit elements to it as well as a lot of roasting. Taste is super creamy and just a bit chocolatey, with a lost of roasting and a subtle bitterness. Really very nice.
