Very strong imperial stout, a lot on the sugary side. Good harmony, great beer.

A very big beer. Very dark in color. When I opened the bottle, it foamed up and would have kept doing so had I not poured about 1/3 of it into a glass. This beer is better left to sit for about 30 minutes or so and is better close to room temp. Very good mixture of coffee, chocolate and roasted malt. Hints of vamilla, but only a hint. A very good beer, but for the price, a tad bit over-hyped.

On tap at the brewpub, DDC 9th anniversary. Black colour with a tan head. Extremely powerful. Tastes as though someone mixed expresso and and imperial stout. Extremely bitter.The alcohol is surprisingly well hidden. Smooth and complex.

Pours black and thick with a thick, beige head. Aroma is strong coffee with a touch of roasted malt. Clings to the the palate and delivers a blast of burnt espresso. Bitter finish. Very complex and very nice.

A very good looking beer - very dark as it poured. Also, I had been warned before openinging and even though I chilled it well, it still foamed over the top of the bottle when opened. I left it a few minutes to settle down before drinking. I guess that for the price I paid, I had high expectations. These expectations were not met. It was good but not exceptional.

Amazing. Simply amazing. Though the coffee definitely comes through, it is not overpowering. The nose is dominated by a bitter chocolate note but the beer is super smooth on the palate and balanced. Coffee is detectable but is countered by a sweetness reminiscent of vanilla. The beer is not highly carbonated, which allows the drinker to detect more in the beer than just coffee. The hops are present, as is the malt, and of course, the coffee! Low carbonation allows the beer fit into a more soft and silky category even though it is high gravity. Be careful with this beer, but enjoy it, because it might be the best stout this side of the Pacific.

Imperial "soft" stout. Chocolate milk and coffee. Sweet but beautifully balanced by the bitterness. Then comes this taste of a bitter café Liegeois. Absolutely incredible
