BOSSbrewer (2140) - Arkansas, USA - FEB 20, 2015
Had from a bottle at Inn at the Springs. Pours dark brown to black with no head. Aroma is roast and some dark fruits. Flavor is very roasty and bitter. Not much sweetness and not much dark fruits. Little maltiness. Full bodied. Nice, but not up to what I was expecting. Great beer, though.

Strong roasted malt and booziness dominate this bad boy. Sweet finish with a boozy bite. Very soft on the tongue. Bottle pour at home black with a thin tan head. Sick good beer. Smells like roasted malt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dr_Fellini (673) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - FEB 18, 2015
Bottle to glass. Pours a pitch black color with a nice creamy brown head. Aroma is full, roasted malts, cacao, light burnt bitterness. Bigger burnt roasted character in the flavor. Full body with a lingering burnt roasted malts and light cocoa. Solid example of an imperial stout.

Bottled 12/22/11- poured blackish, milk chocolate brown head materialized and settled to a chunky ring of foam, nice lacing. Milk chocolate,roasted peanuts, coffee, subtle dark fruits and faint oak on the nose. Chocolate malts, dates, vanilla, lactose, nuts and tobacco spicy hop characteristics on a bed of velvety smoothness body. Wow this aged well. Super long warming finish and sticky on the lips. Not too bitter and balanced. Sit on one for 3 plus yrs ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

IPAgutten79 (652) - Skui, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2015
Kullsvart med lavt espressofarget skum. Aromaen er kaffe, sjokolade og røstet malt. Smaken er nydelig mørk sjokolade, med innslag av bitter kaffe. Mildt bitter. Tykk konsistens! Fløyelsmyk, og vrient å merke den høye alkoholprosenten. Deilig ettersmak av småbitter mørk sjokolade.

Samped at tasting. Pours opaque black with low beige head. Aroma is full and strong, notes of coffee, chocolate, nuts and caramel. Taste is surprisingly mild but grows and walks you through a wonderful expose of taste. It doesn’t get better!
