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.

A black appearance with a beige head. The aroma was coffee and chocolate. The flavor was quite roasty with more chocolate and coffee showing through. The aftertaste was rather bitter. Overall this was a great stout.

Nitro pour from 12th South Tap room Nashville, TN. WOW! Creamy, thick, Chocolatey, toasty, roasty, yes this beer strikes a perfect harmony for me in what I’m looking for in a chocolate Stout! I’m not afraid to rate a perfect beer and neither should you! This must be on your bucket list of beers to try before you die!

Cybercat (3331) - Georgia, USA - MAR 9, 2010
Aroma is strong and smoky with firm tones of fine coffee and unsweetened chocolate. It pours a deep, opaque coffee brown with a nice tan head. Flavor is rich, like a fine and slightly sweet mocha with hints of molasses and licorice. Sublime texture is smooth and tingly, quite pleasing.

Very smooth dark chocolate aftertaste. Very deceiving beer for 8.2 abv. Color is appropriate for a chocolate stout. Very dark effervescence as the one I had was on nitro, which could explain the smooth start to finish. Very much appreciated.

opq-bk, thin-tn-head, smooth-med-full-body, med-high-co2. patchy-lace.

aroma: ^chclt-malt hot-cocoa §sweet-charr §carob §leafy-hops.

flavor: sweet-chclt §carob §wendy’s-frosty co2 T1, co2 leafy-hops §charred-malt T2, cocoa-powder carob §doughy T3, same throughout.

great chclt-malt flavor, no bitterness or astringency, co2 is a bit harsh and tramples some of the delicate flavors and texture. back off on the co2 a bit and throw in some oatmeal to make it silkier and i’d give this a 5!

FROTHINGSLOSH (4918) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 8, 2010
Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a medium sized dark brown head that lingered. The aroma was sweet chocolate syrup with a hint of vanilla. The flavor was strong chocolate syrup, bitter dark chocolate, light toasty malts and hints of vanilla and marshmallow followed by faint floral hops. The finish was long with bitter dark chocolates. Thick and silky smooth body. Excellent.

Awesome chocolate stout. It drinks more like a regular stout but it is full bodied and full flavored, it just is soooo drinkable.

Pours extremely dark and thick with a large brown head. Great balance of chocolate and roasted flavors to this without overpowering each other.

You could tell me this is an Impy and I’d believe you. Perhaps it made a difference that I tasted this from a large wine glass rather than pint glass or whatever.

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