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.

KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - JAN 29, 2011
Bottle. Poured black with a large light brown creamy head that was fully lasting and had excellent lacing. The aroma was of a burnt cereal malts, a mild does of resin hops and a sweet yeast with notes of dark chocolate, coffee and molasses. It tasted richly sweet and quite malty with a small hint of coffee to start then progressed into a bitter-sweet chocolate-coffee flavor at the finish. Mouthfeel was full in body and creamy in texture with a soft carbonation. Overall a quite satisfying chocolate stout.

mbgrayson (689) - Anaconda, Montana, USA - APR 29, 2016
Pours a dark brown, with tan head. Thin aroma, notes of chocolate and malts. Taste of chocolate, malts, and coffee. This is a very drinkable brew, but isn’t as sweet or rich as some other double chocolates(Rogue). Still, this one merits a ’thumbs up’.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2016 I didn?t expect what I got from this bottle! Everything about this stout was very good. I seem to say this a lot...the only improvement I could ask for is a thicker mouthfeel.

Bottle at home. Aroma is dark malt, caramel, dark chocolate, rye bread, liquorice, raisins, roast, hint of vanilla, dark fruits. Flavour is moderate to medium sweet with a moderate roasty bittersweet finish. Body is just above medium. Good one!

nuplastikk (5570) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 31, 2015
12oz bottle. Opaque brown-black. Soapy beige head. Aspirin dry cocoa aroma. Rich doughy chocolate flavor. Not as rich as a typical Imperial Stout.,but a little bigger than a straightforward Stout too. Sort of tame, uninspired. Decent enough.

ozzy70 (453) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - DEC 18, 2015
12 oz. bottle. Pour was thick black with minimal tan head. Aroma was roasty malts, chocolate, coffee and a little ash or ash tray. Taste was sweet and chocolaty. Left a bitter chocolate finish.

jcnielsen (2950) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 23, 2015
Bottle. Pours a black color with off white head. Slight roasty, nutty aromas, pretty minimal aroma for an imperial stout. Chocolate, syrup, cardboard, malty flavors. Another Below average Fort Collins brew.

EBROVIAK (26) - - NOV 6, 2015
Based on the ratings I was prepared to be amazed. On nitro tap at Pour House. First sip was thin with only a hint of chocolate. Second sop didn’t get any better. No body, no flavor, no sale.
