COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The most decadent creation ever to be crafted in FCB’s brewhouse. Deep roasty flavors, rich chocolate nose, coffee undertones and impeccable balance are the result of imperializing an already flawless brew.

12oz bottle pours a fairly viscous, opaque black with some off white head. Nose is what you’d expect, malt, chocolate, toast, caramel, brown sugar, nutty. Flavor is more milk chocolate, caramel, sweet, malt, light toast, light toasted almond. Full, dry finish.

Super duper dark roasted, burnt coffee flavor with some dark chocolate on the nose and palate. Roasty burnt coffee finish. Delightful.

This is easily the best beer I’ve tried from Fort Collins. Very sweet, but not cloying, rich and creamy. Dark with a great head.

Bottle. Pours black with 2 finger white head. Aroma is very sweet with chocolate and a lot of roasted malt. Roasted malt takes over in the taste with some brief coffee notes. Moderate heat from the alcohol. Mouthfeel is a little thin with a lively carb. Would have benefited from the chocolate being more apparent in the taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Oh lady - what a salad! Not like the sissy concoctions some girls serve. They’re enough to keep a man a bachelor forever!

Malty_MacHops (640) - Eastanollee, Georgia, USA - FEB 11, 2013
The aroma is dark chocolate (like the really bitter high cacao percentage kind) and roast coffee. Black with a very small fading cream head. Bitter roast coffee flavors. Medium bodied with a bittersweet finish.

Bottle at craft ale house. Pours black with minimum light coming through. There is a small off white head. The aroma Is lactic with sweet milk chocolate. The taste is slightly sweet and lightly bitter chocolate, roasty notes. Solid palate.. Nice borderline imperial.

samsmith33 (391) - - JAN 22, 2013
Toasted malt, chocolate. Creamy ten head over a dark black pour. Dark chocolate, raisin; slight sour late. A tad thin for a stout. Growler pour from Joe canals. They were out of founders breakfast stout again, argh. Beer had quite the kick. Maybe should be called imperial.

jtclockwork (8594) - , New Jersey, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Bottle at Paul’s "Blind" imperial stout tasting. Pours black with a tan head. Nose and taste is almost all chocolate with a little roast. Some coffee notes. The chocolate becomes less impressive with each sip. First sip was a 3.8 and so on down from there. Medium body.
