Number Too - This beer is made with milk sugar (lactose) which gives this beer a nice creamy mouth feel which mingles with hints of chocolate and roasty flavors.

Not much of a browqn head on this this black ale, but who cares? Nice roasted aroma full of roasted barley and malt, chocolate, vanilla, burnt wood, coffee, and a hit of almond bitterness. All that is there in the flavor with the merest trace of the sturdy abv. Nice bittersweet finish. Had I been told that this this was an Imperial, I would have responded, "And a damned fine one, too."

Thanks Nancy (mamabeer) and Tom! This beer has a nicely developed aroma of vanilla, coffee, and toffee. It is black with a dark brown head that fades fast. This beer has a nice robust coffee taste that is both bitter and sweet. It fades a tad bitter as the coffee taste settles on the throat to be enjoyed well after swallowing.

Bottle. Pours pitch black with dark brown head. Heavy on the roasts and coffee along with bitter chocolate and charcoal. Finishes with a nice lingering bitterness. ABV completely hidden. Another fine brew from these guys.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2006
Black as night pour topped by a thin brown head that dissapates quickly. Chocolate and coffee and roasted malts in the nose. Chocolate/vanilla/honey/almonds/and chocolate milk in flavor. Big ABV so well hidden as to be non-existant. Very lightly bittered. Very reminiscent of Founders Breakfast Stout, maybe even better!

12 oz. bottle thanks to Silphium. Pours midnight black with a sparse dark head that faded quickly. Aromas were come dark chocolate, and mocha. Flavor coffee first and some backing chocolate competeing with a hop finish. Roastiness throughout and tasty stuff.

12 oz bottle via trade with SuIIy! - Thanks Mike! - Pours black and thick with a nice creamy mocha head that laces the glass in thick layers. Looks exactly like a good stout should. Aroma is milk chocolate, much roasted character too though. A touch of coffee also can be found above the glass. Flavor is roasted malt, milk chocolate, smoke, coffee, a little caramel. Very decadant. Palate is smooth with a somewhat oily feel. Lingering sweet aftertaste keeps you coming back for more. Full bodied and the alcohol is covered well. Very nice...

Quiver (140) - Augusta, Georgia, USA - JAN 13, 2006
Thanks to MikeMac: Nice sweet brew. Poured black, with a nice mahogony head. A litte high alcohol for a sweet stout, but you would never know if by the taste. I nice sweet milky chocolate taste... not overbaring on the sweetness though...

This poured much darker then expected, like motor oil. Very icky sweet aroma, like milk. This reminds me of a milk stout. Rich and creamy. A fine beer after a meal, but I wouldn’t want a lot of it at one time. Should be enjoyed with a fine cigar. Finishes with a roasted milky sweetness that makes you want to take another sip. I would recommed this to someone who has not had a stout to try this. Not your adverage Guiness...brillant!
