It’s somewhat bland. There is a lack of flavor in terms of boldness in any characteristic. The matliness gives a slight cereal tast. It has somewhat of a doughy aspect to it. Definite hints of banana and woodsy describe the beer well.

dwyerpg (4354) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAR 10, 2013
This beer had a better flavor than the big bad baptist, but the mouthfeel wasn’t quite as good. An excellent beer on a cold night camping in Zion.

Itzjerm (1000) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - MAR 8, 2013
A very good imperial stout. But no aroma it needs to be baptized I guess. No head okay mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kathouse (811) - Nevada, USA - MAR 7, 2013
Black with a sticky tan foam. Typical stout aroma of coffee and cocoa. Core of dark fruit flavor, good supporting complexity and a slight currant finish.

Nikiel (870) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Bottle from Bellmont Station with Carla. Pours black with tan foam. Smells mild with some bitterness, roastiness and alcohol. Tastes surprisingly hoppy with hints of jalepeno, charcoal and alcohol.

Patrickctenchi (3093) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - FEB 21, 2013
Bottle: Release #8 Pours nearly black with a thin, dark head. Aroma of dark chocolate, roast coffee. Taste is sturdily malted with a strong, dark chocolate and coffee bitter. Slightly tingly, yet heavy bodied. A nice one.

jbruner (1982) - Athens, Georgia, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Release #9 from Appalachian Vintner. Pours an opaque black from the bottle with a thin tan brown head and moderate lacing. Aroma of vanilla, dark chocolate, roasted malts, and a hint of booze. Taste was way more roasted than the sweet scent, but still nice with vanilla chocolate sweetness. Thick on the mouth with a hint of boozy burn. Wow, damn good.

DrSilverworm (5024) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 15, 2013
22oz bottle, shared with Anthony. Release #8, 9.8% ABV. Black color, thin khaki head, leaves good lace. Big roasty malt flavor. Decent coffee, good bitter dark chocolate malts. Nice big bitter taste. Long roasty dark chocolate aftertaste. Great chewy texture, bigger body, light carbonation. Nothing special or outstanding about this, but a solid imperial stout, I’d say.
