(bottle) Pours black with hardly a tan head. Coffee/chocolates were in the nose, same in the taste except it was sweeter then I expected. Alchohol was not well hidden, and it was very oiley, very syrupy, but not in a good way. I wasnt impressed by full sail this time. But, I’ll drink their barley wine anyday!

drismyhero (815) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - MAY 24, 2005
My roomates stumbled upon a bottle of this in Glacier, WA of all places. Deeply infused with esspresso, this stout seems to take on a slightly thin/astringent character, although it gets better with warmth. The smoke comes through as well as some dark chocolate. The alchohol is there but all but buried under all that coffee. This definitely could use some time to mellow out, but with some roundness it could really be another excellent Full Sail.

mybrainhurts (357) - North Dakota, USA - MAY 28, 2005
Almost black pour with some red tints on the sides of the glass. Roasty, alcoholic nose. Roasted malts, plums, and pepper. Very dry and acidic finish. A tangy and roasty imp stout. Not bad.

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 2, 2005
Thanks to SNOB for the bottle. Medium sized dark tan foamy head. Slightly phenolic aroma with slight alcohol and banana undertones. Some roastiness, with a clashing hop spiciness. Alcohol and residual spicy hop character dominate the finish.

11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - JUN 7, 2005
Tap at brewery. Deep brown in color, very nearly black. A tan head barely forms, quickly leaves and there is no lacing left behind. Bery big coffee aroma, a touch of chocolate. Bedium bodied and low in carbonation. Very coffee in flavor, roasted grain with nice hop bitterness backing it all up. Solid IS, needs more body and complexity to bring it in to contention with the big boys.

Pours black with a big soapy head. Spider webs of lace. Roasty aromas, bold taste, mostly coffee. A bit astringent.Decent enough RIS, thanks Radek.

JohnKirk (1) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 14, 2005 does not count
Warm - about what you’d expect from a typical Imperial Stout, but a little lacking in charred grain flavor and hops.

slimweebs (163) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 5, 2005
This beer lokos great, with a very dark color and copper colored head. The palate is a little thin for a big dark beer like this, but the flavor is very heavy. The flavors of this beer are very nice, except for the fortified alcohol taste. It tasted buttery and roasty at first, and then turned into fortified alcohol taste that ruined the whole beer. I wouldn’t order this again.

On tap at the brewpub. Aroma is boozy, bready, some roast. Dark and opaque. Medium body, flavor is full-on roast, with some booze hanging over
