Dogbrick (11021) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 2, 2011
This beer pours flat black with a medium tan head that diminishes steadily. Rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee and dark chocolate. Rich, roasty body with flavors of black coffee, sweet malt and bakers chocolate. Some hops in the background too. The finish is malty with a lingering sweet roast aftertaste. Solid Imperial Stout all around.

ekoerper (599) - Iowa, USA - SEP 25, 2011
Big roasty nose, chocolate, caramel, slightly ashy, moderate bitterness. Pours black, nearly opaque, tan head with decent retention. Flavor is heavy roast, coffee, fairly ashy and a bit harsh, caramel and pleasant sweetness. Full body, thick and chewy, medium carbonation. Nice brew.

p1meatloaf (256) - Corvallis, Oregon, USA - SEP 10, 2011
22 oz bottle bought from the brewery and opened in San Digeo into pint glass. Looks very black with brown head. Smells like roasted brown blackness with a bit of rich creaminess. Tastes of pretty fairly rich chocolate malts. Very tasty double stout. Overall 7.5 of 10.

hopscotch (10532) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 1, 2011
Bottle… Dark brown ale with a tiny, creamy, beige head. Good retention. The aroma offers a concoction of soy sauce, singed espresso, caramel and unsweetened dark chocolate. Medium to full-bodied with a velvety mouthfeel and nearly expired carbonation. The flavor leans way bitter, offering burnt malt and acrid, carbonaceous charcoal. Finishes scorched and bitter, leaving an aftertaste of spent espresso grounds. Bottle courtesy of landhoney!

Pours a deep rich coffee black with a tan head. Aroma is of burnt coffee and chocolate. Tase has a roasted bitterness. A full bodie beer.

LonelyStranger (3) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 21, 2011 does not count
Pours quite black with a thin cream colored head. Aromas were of roasted chocolate malts and coffee with a light flora background. Mouth feel was oily but not heavy and lightly carbonated. The flavor was forward with chocolate, roasted malt, and caramel. I felt it had a vanilla and liquorice-like undertone to it and was reminiscent of plum.

l1br4r14n (451) - Rancho Cucamonga, California, USA - AUG 18, 2011
Bottle. Pours dark brown-black with a small tan head. Pleasant aromas of chocolate, french roast coffee, roasted barley. More chocolate in the flavor, mildly sweet. Very smooth and easy to drink for an Imp Stout. Great job!

Bottle shared at the district. Black pour with a tan head. Dark malt and chocolate aromas. Well balanced with roasted malts, chocolate, molasses, and a hint of earthy expresso.

DalzAle (2020) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - JUL 30, 2011
Bottle shared by portableparty! Dark black pour, light and lasting carbonation and a nice chocolate nose. Flavor was plenty of earthy peat, more chocolate, smoke and creamy vanilla. Very good, rich imperial stout!

portableparty (2273) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUL 24, 2011
Bottle to snifter (release#3). Pours oily brown black with a soapy tan chocolatly head that dissipates to a thin tiny collar. Aroma is rich chocolate roasted malt and prunes and a little soy. Taste is chocolate roasted malt hints of coffee and pitted fruit with a bitter finish and alcohol is present. Palate is full and ceamy with a slick oily dry finish. This is really tasty, even with the alcohol being quite noticable. Will need to get another one and sit on it for awhile. Nice stuff!
