2 brothers tasting night. Beer 4 from beer huis, Ossett. Black beer with small tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee and chocolate. Taste is the same with more coffee than chocolate. A touch sour. Medium to full bodied, silky. Very nice, but not as highly rated by me as others.

Out of this world, just perfection. Itís a shame NH Liquor Commission doesnít allow bottles in the state, but get it on draft, itís even better.

Now that everyone can get them... they sit on the shelf. Itís a shame. If you ask me, itís one of the best stouts out. You didnít ask me though. I saw my cousin pound one once like it was a macro swill beer. Dumb... but fun to watch. What a waste. You blew it.

Bottle. Pours black with a 1 finger mocha head that fades to leave a thin layer of tan bubbles - looks amazing. The aroma is roasted malts, coffee grinds, and dark chocolate. The taste follows the aroma with some oats/bread and sweet sugars. The coffee is the main component of the taste. The alcohol is hidden well but, I like that it shows at times with some warm notes in the aftertaste. The palate is rich and heavy with a bit of a syrup coating. The oatmeal really adds to the thick mouthfeel. This is basically perfect if you like rich stouts.

Bottle poured into pint glass. It pours a black, tan head with two finger of head. The smell wasnít strong but I smelled chocolate and some coffee. The taste then was more coffee than chocolate, yum! The palate was velvety and full bodied. Overall, I would definitely drink this again, this time in the right glassware!

Pours a dark black with thick brown head. Has a strong coffee and cocoa aroma. Taste is strong with coffee, chocolate and roasted malts. Taste lingers like an excellent fresh made Cafe Mocha at a fine cafť.

Where the hell can I start? MMMM lets see. My favorite beer I ever had. This is not only an imperial stout or beer, but an imperial imagination from the brew masters at Founders. This beer is pitch black from the pour just like used motor oil with a khaki tan head and about a finger of head. From the aroma I get massive amounts of coffee which followed by roasted malts and just a hint of chocolate. They say this beer is double chocolate, but Iím not picking to much up as much as the coffee. From the taste I get that huge coffee taste along with, chocolate, and roasted malt. On the palate this beer just coats your mouth. Palate:slick feel, thick feel,
