Pours pitch black, with a thick, foamy light brown head. Pretty big, up in your face roast aroma. Some hop presence in there as well to balance it out some which was nice. Dark malts and mild chocolate were noticeable too. The flavor was big on the roast as well, with some chocolate, cream, and nutty characters. Nice full bodied stout, alot of flavor. Another solid offering from these guys. They are getting more and more respect from me.

Draught at Liberty in Columbia, SC. Pours dark black with a small tan head. Aroma is strong coffee, dark fruit, and soy sauce. Flavor is much the same, plenty of great dark notes to be found all over this beer. The mouthfeel is not as thick as an impy, but it’s pretty close. It’s all the better for balancing on the fence between regular stout and imperial stout.

boboski (1095) - Alabama, USA - JUL 8, 2007
Draft at FB. Dense, opaque black pour, glimmering with oils. A rich, thick tan head impart gorgeous lacing. The aroma is of heavily roasted grains, over-toasted bread, chocolate, coffee, balck raspberry and orange pulp. Alcohol is well concealed. The flavor is great, with notes of dense dark chocolates, more roast and light hops. Bitterness is fair to moderate, sweetness is mild, acidity low. A very good recipe, well executed thus far. Mouthfeel is robust, creamy and lightly but adequately carbonated. Finishes with roasted coffee notes, chocolate and breadiness lingering. Extremely drinkable. Very well done.

Draft @ Barley’s Asheville. The presence of an imp stout w/ more drinkability. Kind of like a semi-imperial stout. Full mouthfeel. Very nice.

Draft at the brewery; found it pretty good for the style, but nothing exceptional. Fairly dry, with chocolate and coffee the primary flavors. Very good mouthfeel.
