Tap at FatHeads, Opaque black body. Lacy off-white head. Thick sweet chocolate tones. Coffee tinged, stick and sweet. Not on the same level as some of their other beers. Still solid. Roasty. A little bit hot. OK.

Just put on tap at my house. Poured into a 8 oz snifter. Nice dark brown body with brownish tinged frothy head that laces the glass nice. Flavors of burnt chocolate. Metallic components to the aroma and beer that would like resolve with warming. Overall fantastic, strong and enjoyable.

Draft. Dark cola with thin mocha head. Lots of roast, chocolate, caramel and a touch of hop bitterness. Nice rich mouthfeel without being too syrupy. Very good.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark beer in the snifter with a foamy, sticky beige head. Dried fruit and alcohol in the nose. Initially this beer has tons of chocolate, dried fruit and sweetened coffee flavors over a confident hop bitterness. As it warms the alcohol comes out with the fruity flavors. It finishes with a sticky caramel sweetness and a long green bitterness. Nice impy stout.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
