ajnepple (4989) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 28, 2015
On tap at FreshCraft, 2013 vintage, served very cold for 14%. Black appearance with a tan head and light lacing. Aroma of dark malts, dark chocolate, light coffee, light roast and light earthy hops. Similar flavor, dark, thick and malty with a mild earthy bitterness coming through. The alcohol is hidden well. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Pretty enjoyable overall, I just wish I had more time to let it warm up.

adnielsen (10475) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 4, 2010
Tasted from tap at the Parade of Darks in Denver, Colorado. Deep black appearance with a dark brown head. Slightly spiced but mostly a deep malty aroma. Creamy mouthfeel with a pretty strong Imperial Stout flavor. Surprisingly pretty good.

Snifter at the brewpub - viscous black pour that actually leaves a sticky brown film along the inside of the glass as you drink the beer - I a normally not a fan of such thick, sweet imperial stouts - however, the abv kind of warrants it - plus it is pretty darn good for what it is - loads of anise, tamarind, caramelized sugars, a hint of taro root - vanilla, spicy alcohol - thick body encourages slow sipping, which this beer needs - brown sugar, molasses and prune - light vinous character on the tail end - lingering spicy alcohol and bittersweet bakerís chocolate - considering itís heft, it is surprisingly balanced - I think that, if they bottled this, or at the very least allowed growler sales of it, it might reach the top 50 here, as it seems to have a lot of what most people look for in an imperial stout.
