Poured into the glass it is super dark with a large brown head. The aroma is boozy with malts and chocolate. Can’t wait for the taste and it all starts with chocolate which dominates up front. There is malts with a touch of coffee and some molasses. Great finish. Will definitely enjoy this one again.

Holy crap...viscous, abominable and bursting to the seems with big roasted malts. Tons of chocolate, smoky roasted malts, coffee and big heavy alcohol. The pour is purely black with a creamy tan head that clings to the glass all over. Smooth but intense with big smoky chocolate notes, heavy espresso notes. RObust and intense with a great afterburn of booze and roast.

12 oz can from New Seasons Market in Hillsboro, OR. Aroma is boozy, roasty, and malty, with hints of molasses, chocolate, and bug spray. Mouthfeel and taste is syrupy, sweet, and creamy throughout, and finishes with a slight astringency. Pretty fantastic!

Poured from a can. Poured a beautiful thick dark color. Aroma is sweet and syrupy. Taste is sickly sweet like raisin and cherries, not my favorite. Each taste made me pucker a bit less.

Draft at 3floyds brewpub. Pours a pitch motor oil black with a tanned brown head. Nose has roasted coffee, dark chocolate, molasses and burn malts. Very coffee driven. Taste is all about roasted espresso and molasses. Smooth chocolate coats the palate. Dry coffee bitterness to finish. Fantastic beer.

If you like dark this one is for you. A very rich tasting beer with even favors that are layered to make a complex flavor experience.

355ml can. A thick black pour with a chocolate brown cap. Messy lacing. Rich chocolate nose, roast, caramel, coffee and a hint of licorice. Taste has big roasted malts that bring out black coffee beans, and dark chocolate, some caramel. Finishes with decent bitterness, lots of dark coffee and roast notes. Some alcohol at the end, long aftertaste. Full mouthfeel. Overall a very solid imperial stout.

Dark black and thick. Complex malt profile with coffee, chocolate, brown sugar. Nicely balanced sweetness and slight lingering hop bitterness. Excellent go-to stout.

This beer poured thick and dark. A good size dark brown head, that disappeared and left a little lacing. Tastes of dark blend coffee, molasses,chocolate and sweet malt with a strong alcohol presence dominate. Excellent
