Few times in the history of craft beer it has happened that a highly praised beer rises beyond mortal stardom into a higher godly league. Usually the recipe to make such heavenly drops is thick fudge-like body, pitch black color, amazingly overwhelming aromas of chocolate, coffee, dark fruits and muscovado sugar, obviously only made in limited amounts and most crucial of all – it must taste rare!

Dark black in color, mahogany brown head... Aroma of smoke, roasted malts, bacon... Chocolate notes... Flavor is smoked malts, roasted malts, dark chocolate, sausage, fairly boozy on palate... Solid, little too boozy on finish ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. Thick and black as melted cacao, topped with a dense sandy tan head. Leaves brown, oily legs on the glass upon swirling. Aroma is smoky bacon, honey-roasted peanuts, vanilla, caramel, medium-roast coffee. The flavor is like a maple-dipped piece of bacon with a fudge and coffee finish. The oily brew lingers on the tongue for a long while. Jesus, this is good.

TBone (14611) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 4, 2015
Tap at Torst, Brooklyn. Opaque black color, small brownish head. Aroma has roasted malts, alcohol and brown sugar. Full-bodied. Very sweet, dark fruits, candy sugar, some licorice in the finish. Swertness covers the alcohol. Port-version was much more interesting. Maybe this is not so good batch.

Off or adjunct notes in the nose carry over to the flavor. The mildly bitter flavor has hints of coffee, dark fruits, over-ripe bananas, and other soft fruits. O: disappointing.

On tap at Westbrook tasting room. OMG. Amazing. Everything an imperial stout can and should be. Simple yet incredibly complex. Jet black opaque imposing pour. Nice reddish tan head. Roasty malts, chocolate, coffee, earthy and pleasantly boozy. Thick and full mouthfeel. Lingering sweetness in the long finish. Great balance. A work of art.

ma porrada de café, malte torrado e defumado! Sensacional Coloração negra, um liquido consistente e licoroso. Espuma bege/marrom, bem cremosa, com microbolhas de permeio, de alta formação (quase dois dedos) e boa permanência no copo. Sua consistência licorosa, aveludada e cremosa, da um aspecto de "shake" no copo. Aroma é uma explosão de café/mocaccino, frutas negras, shake de chocolate, maltes torrados e defumados. No segundo plano o chocolate meio-amargo vem à tona, junto com baunilha, bem como uma percepção de conhaque e rum a fundo. Seu sabor é primoroso. Na boca remete inúmeras notas amargas de café torrado e prensado, maltes torrados, trufas e shake de chocolate meio amargo. As notas frutadas de avelã, nozes, passas e ameixa, logo em seguida mostram-se evidentes, bem como mínimas notas gramíneas ao fundo. Do meio pro final o defumado/esfumaçado faz presente e bem presente. Seu final seco e ríspido, arremete muito ao rum, onde seus 12% passa sem agredir em nada na boca, apenas aquece o estômago. Conjunto magnífico. É sensacional. Uma Double Imperial Stout muito fácil de beber, por isso deve se ter muito cuidado.!!!!! Está nas TOP já.
