Black pour - creamy tan lace - aroma of chocolate chip cookie dough (bittersweet chocolate chips, sugar, molasses), brown sugar, anise, smoke - smells like freaking Christmas, alright - creamy texture, full body - lovely balance between sweet malt character, light dark malt bitterness, a touch of tartness/tannic notes, and a touch of alcohol - flavors of dark fruit, tamarind, roast, chocolate, vanilla beans - bittersweet finish, with some warmth, but no booziness - excellent imperial stout.

libertine (224) - rochester hills, Michigan, USA - OCT 20, 2014
pours opaque black with a nice brown head. aroma is boozy, with roasted coffee and anise. flavor of fresh roasted coffee, anise, and dark fruit. alcohol is very present in the finish. Medium bodied. Pretty solid. My only negative observation, this is a little thin. Should have more body.

rondphoto (2204) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - OCT 20, 2014
on tap @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Opaque black with a brown head cover, streaks of lace. Aroma of roasted malt. Taste is roasted chocolate malt with a bit of anise that becomes more bitter through the addition of coffee tasting hops, rounding things out with noticeable alcohol warmth in the finish. A strong, but enjoyable brew.

jbruner (2424) - Athens, Georgia, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Pours a deep black with hints of brown, nice tan lacy head. Aroma is booze on booze with hints of fruit and licorice. Taste is smoky intense roast with a big boozy licorice back end, hint of plum and muscadine. Booze is less on the mouth than nose, but still present. They make better stouts, but not bad.
