It's big and full bodied with lots of roasted malts and balanced with heavy hops to put this imperial in a league of its own.
Previously known as Dark Horse Imperial Stout.

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 (1024) - 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.

oh6gdx (25472) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 20, 2010
Bottled. Quite much pitch black colour with small brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, liquorice, mild smoke as well as some quite strong alcoholic notes. Flavour is roasted malts, liquorice, some rather strong bitterness as well as mild wooden notes. Quite strange balance in the flavour.

Bottle from wnoble, thanks! Pours a pitch black, with fizzy deep tan head. Aroma of dark fruit, tons of dark fruit!, raisins, plum, dried prunes, caramel, molasses, nuts, and bits of sweet milk chocolate. Flavor is similar, just more chocolate then the aroma, but still lots of dried fruits, bits of vanilla. Some of the alcohol warmth comes through, but in a good way. Creamy mouthfeel. Excellent.

12 oz bottle. Pours a pitch black color and topped by a small, bubbly dark tan colored head of foam that settles quickly to a thin film leaving some soapy spots of lace behind on the glass. The aroma shows notes of bitter sweet dark chocolate, vanilla cream, and roasted coffee. Deeper notes of dark fruit and alcohol heat are noticeable also. The flavor shows lots of dark chocolate, vanilla cream, and rosted malts. There is some earthy bitterness from the hops on the back end as well. Full bodied and a touch creamy with balanced carbonation and a long, roasty finish with some alcohol burn on the way down. This bottle had some age on it, but I would like to see how a fresh bottle would be. Still a really nice imperial stout.

HonusWagner (2127) - Florida, USA - AUG 8, 2010
UPDATED: APR 12, 2011 Lots of anise, some vinous fruits, a kind of fudgey chocolate flavor. A ridiculously great body on this beer, flavors not really up my alley.
