thegreenrooster (3977) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 4, 2014
Pour is an almost black with a small white head. Aroma is some chocolate malt, molasses and a fruity hop. Flavor is a bitter roast with some chocolate notes, a slight mint and bit of hops hiding in the backround. Finish leaves a of roast and molasses on the tongue. A decent beer, not as intense as some impy stouts, but worth a try.

Solid imperial stout. Aroma of roasted malts and oak. Deep dark color with a nice tan head. Filling body with plenty of weight. Average carbonation. Roasted flavor with a balancing bitterness. After flavors of dark chocolate. Alcohol was well-hidden. Good representation of the style.

PhilJackson80 (531) - Oklahoma, USA - AUG 9, 2014
12 oz bottle. Tasted on 8/9/14. Beer from Beertopia. The beer pours to medium dark black color with a light tan head. The aroma has some dark fruit & chocolate, with some licorice. The taste is medium in body & has a medium complexity to it. Overall a pretty good stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
