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.

Bomber thanks to @@ron! Pours a pretty thick black with a tan head. Aromas of anise, roast, chocolate, marshmallow. Taste is syrupy thick but not too sweet... some ash, tobacco. Roasty. Finishes with a slight alcohol heat. Decent.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle from Root Cellar. Release #3. Pours a deep brown, not quite opaque, with a tiny beige head that dissipates immediately and amber highlights around the sides. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, caramel, earthy roast, and faint char. The flavor hits the same slate of notes; rich, roasty flavor. Light-medium bodied, probably thinned over the past couple years, with a smooth, roasty mouthfeel. Good imperial stout.

Release #11. 10.3% ABV. Bomber from Beverages for Less in Santee, CA. Fred’s the man! Pours extremely dark brown/black with an extremely dark tan head. Aroma has lots of treacle and burnt malt. Full bodied. Flavor is smooth burnt malt, chocolate, treacle, touch of heat, and bitter! Finishes all that way. Mouth smacking finish. Very impressive.
