13 oz draught, pint room. Virtually opaque dark black; light beige head; medium lacing. Mostly chocolate, coffee, and some roast. Solid, forgettable.

phaleslu (6554) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 16, 2014
Draft at Cincy Beerfest 2014 on Fountain Square. Pours a deep, mostly opaque brown with a small tan head. Notes of chocolate, roast, nuts, earth, toast, faint coffee, and a very faint note of dried dark fruit - simple and straightforward overall. Medium-bodied, with moderate to medium carbonation and a really malty mouthfeel that has some bitterness in the back end. Good, up-the-middle imperial stout.

Chudwick (2156) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - SEP 12, 2014
Taster at beerfest - nose is roasty. Sip adds chocolate, raisins, coffee grounds, and licorice. Sweet with dark chocolate bitterness. Standout beer.

pottygok (472) - Ohio, USA - AUG 26, 2014
Aroma: Strong chocolate aroma with a backbone of coffee, dried cherries and hints of malt. Appearance: Black with a rich tan head. Taste: Medium sweetness with hints of bitterness at the very edges for some depth and balance. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, long sweet finish. Overall: Itís a bit sweeter than I like, but itís still a solid, well-developed beer with a lot going on. Iím certainly not disappointed.
