Location: 12 oz bottle via trade with NickD717, 9/30/10

Aroma: Lots of big roasted notes, some chocolate malts, vanilla, and coffee

Flavor: The taste is medium-heavy roasted/malty, it has a dry coffee bitterness
Palate: It has a quite creamy mouthfeel, its smooth, full bodied, and with a mild ABV burn
Overall Impression: Overall, this is a pretty good beer. A bit on the one dimensional side, but that dimension is really well-done. A well-made roasted stout that drinks nicely and has a good feel on the tongue.

Boutip (5680) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 26, 2010
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of roasted malt with bitter note and very subtle coffee notes. Taste is also dominated by roasted bitter notes with light dry coffee notes. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Well brewed though it doesn’t really stand apart from good imperial stout out there.

dnstone (2457) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - SEP 12, 2010
Chocolatey with light burnt roast aroma. Pitch black, and viscous; starts with a brown head that fades to nothing. Thick chocolatey with a finish that lingers..maybe some vinilla tones in the after taste. A solid imperial stout, really enjoyable! Would love to try a barrel aged version.

WabashMan (1023) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - AUG 29, 2010
Pours, black, bubbly, and beautiful, with a dark brown head. The shortness of the head’s life is the only thing keeping this one from perfect marks for appearance. Nose is dark fruit, chocolate, and alcohol. Flavors are similar, though they fade into a darker, more bitter chocolate.
