ThisWangsChung (836) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - APR 7, 2013
12 oz bottle poured into a Samuel Smith pint glass. A: Pours a very dark brown color. The head is a three finger tan shade. Retention isn’t particularly superb, nor did I expect it to be. Lacing isn’t great, either. Still, the look of this one puts most imperial stouts to shame. S: Certainly a cream stout, with its big notes of lactose and powdered chocolate. Underlying that is some roasted barley. Smells bigger than it really is. T: An initial wave of opening lactic cream is really pleasant, giving way to a combination of unsweetened chocolate and roasted barley. The aforementioned finish retains its milky twang, helping to balance all of the pleasant roasty bitterness. I’m also happy the lactose doesn’t come off as being too acidic. This is my kind of stout, only lacking in terms of depth. M: Creamy and soft, giving way to a semi-dry finish. It does a solid job being moderately easy to drink and feeling big at the same time. Generally, it just FEELS pitch-black. O: While it definitely comes off like a cream stout, there are many times drinking this where I think it might be an imperial stout, and a rock-solid one at that. Certainly it’s much better than their One oatmeal stout.

screigh (628) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 21, 2016
Pours black. Zero head. Smells roasty. Roasty flavor with only a hint of lactose if you search for it. A bit astringent more in line with a porter.

puren (673) - Starogard Gd., POLAND - MAY 13, 2016
Prezentacja:
czarne, beżowa, średnio obfita piana opada do kołnierza, nie zdobi szkła;
Aromat:
śmietankowy, metaliczny i delikatny kawowy z nutką alkoholu - to połączenie daje dziwny efekt;
Odczucie:
ciało wysokie ku średniemu, puszyste, nisko nasycone, finisz czekoladowy, zaklejanie;
Smak:
czekolada deserowa, słonecznik, paloność, metaliczność, średnia palona goryczka - krótka;
Ogólnie:
bardzo smaczne, mimo przeszkadzającego mi zaklejania i metalu w aromacie.

12 oz bottle. Black color with small beige head that dissipates completely. Aroma of coffee, roasted malts. Taste is coffee, more roasted malts, freshness from the lactic character, a hint of tartness, slightly bitter finish.
