Bottle. The milkshake head on this thing made it look like a dessert, and I wasn’t disappointed! Thick, milky, creamy, and rich with dark chocolate, this is a dreamy, warming beer, and an excellent way to cap the evening during this downpour that’s knocked out my satellite reception. Could be a new favorite (except it’s a little pricey here). Exceptional.

suprchunk (2671) - Crestview, Florida, USA - JUL 23, 2011
Dark oily pour into a tulip. Small tan head that leaves behind just a tad bit of lacing. Malty aroma with chocolate highlights and coffee notes. Spicy plums as well. Tastes chocolatey and a bit of a powdery aftertaste. Bit of alcohol in there as well. Sweet plum taste mixed in. A bit dry in the back. Decent beer.

HighWine (955) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - JUL 21, 2011
Tap at Local Option. Dark brown pour with a foamy khaki head. No lacing. Burnt wood and booze in the nose. Taste is vanilla bean, roast, and alcohol. Warm in the mouth and esophagus. Gers better as you drink more! Would love to age a bottle for about 2-3 years.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - JUL 19, 2011
Bottle dated bb dec/2011 from nbutler on 2/2/11. Surprising pale color… porter orange with a beige head. Spotty yeast clumps floating around. Aroma of molasses, harsh roast, black raisins, ash and wet green wood. Loads of ashiness in the flavor mixes with more wood, raisins, roast and a bitter cocoa-like astringency. There is a light sourness on the finish. It is light bodied considering the alcohol content but I can’t taste any of it. Weird… and neat. 7/3/7/3/15

Pailhead (5746) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUL 18, 2011
On tap: the aroma consists of chocolate, caramel, plum, alcohol, and faint roast. It’s a dark brown with no transparency and a small beige head that leaves some nice webbing behind for lacing. The flavor starts with moderate chocolate and lighter caramel. The is some plum in the background. The finish has notes of roast, espresso, vanilla, and light smoke. Alcohol/heat is also quite noticeable. Full bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, a solid Imperial Stout, but the alcohol/heat is a little too prevalent.

yackery (159) - California, USA - JUL 7, 2011
11.6 oz bottle pours a shade light of muddy lake opaque with a dime of head in a pint glass and a thin and fast but solidly-covering lacing. Aroma is of roasted caramel, bateria, and a note of alcohol. Taste is most like bitter chocolate with sweet and salty notes and all. Palate is full and creamy.

Ibrew2or3 (7511) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 25, 2011
Bottle courtesy of ksurkin pours darkness with full mocha head. The aroma is sweet malts, dark roasted malts, some black licorice and toffee. The taste is pretty darn rich with big dark roasted malts, black licorice, molasses, spicy hops and boozy heat notes right into the finish. Very nice bold flavored sipper.
