On tap @ Epic (Denver). Pours black in color with a tan head. Big roasted malt nose. Chocolate, coffee, and licorice. Some molasses, a bit of smoke, and ash. Flavor is kind of acidic, but mostly just bitter roasted malt and chocolate. Smoke, molasses, licorice, and a hint of ash. Mild sweetness. Not bad.

Tap @ the brewery tap room. Pours a pitch black with a small, creamy beige head on top. Aroma of coffee, booze, molasses and roast. Flavour is very bitter and well carbonated, with a sticky, sugary mouthfeel. Medium long finish, sweet and sticky. Very nice brew.

Damn decent stout.

BeerKurve (489) - - JUL 27, 2013
Pitch black with a dark brown head and carbonation along the glass and no lacing. Nose is mainly chocolate, cocoa, vanilla, licorice, roasted barley and malts. Flavor is likewise the same with a slight boozy flavor. Body is fairly light and the carbonation starts out strong but tapers off after a few minutes. Good tasting Imperial Stout overall.

22. Pours jet black with a dense and creamy dark tan head. Sweet and roasty nose; showing anise and a bit of soy sauce along with some milk chocolate. Creamy thickish body with soft carb. Roasty dark chocolate mid palate with a bit of good coffee. Salty and anise notes fade a bit compared to the nose. Long coffee finish. Nice impy.

Pailhead (4622) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JUN 21, 2013
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate dark chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, and light vanilla. It pours a dark brown with faint orange highlights and a small beige head that quickly fades to a thin ring. The flavor starts with moderate dark chocolate and a touch of black licorice. It finishes with moderate roasted coffee, light burnt notes, and a hint of vanilla. It’s medium-full bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat oily mouthfeel.
