64oz growler courtesy of brentfeesh for growler swap 3.0! thanks, brent! pours a slick, slightly viscous, deep brown that sits damn near black in the glass and is capped by a rich, creamy, dark mocha head that leaves thick, glass-staining legs. aroma is great with big notes of rich, dark chocolate, heavy roast, and great smoky elements of campfire and bacon that are backed by notes of brown sugar, coffee beans, and toasted vanilla cookies. flavor is outstanding as well, pretty bold actually, with huge notes of smoked malts, very intense espresso, bitter cacao chocolate, and burnt toast backed by hints of licorice, vanilla, plum skins, and dry earth. palate is on the heavier side of medium bodied with smooth carbonation and a long, heavily roasted, bitter finish. overall, a really well done imperial stout.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a growler shared by weihenheizen. Thank you! Appearance is a dark brown, near black with a khaki to grey-ish head of foam. Aroma is a little bit smoky with huge influences of dark chocolate and toasty coffee beans. Roasty taste, almost burnt, but not quite. Long, lingering roasty finish. Nice sipper.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft from Highland Package in Birmingham. Pours almost black with a thick tan head that settles to a nice ring. Aroma of coffee, roast, and chocolate. Bracing roast bitterness, that brings to mind coffee although it is not prominent in the taste. Well carbonated, finishes bitter with the roasts dominating.
