Bomber from Supermarket Liquors - Fort Collins. Nose is chocolate, light prunes, and a hint of charred smoky bread. Black with a medium, lightly lacing, cinnamon tan head. Flavor is lightly sweet and smoky with a chocolate covered raisin note and a light smoky, lightly bitter finish.

Tap at foundry. Aroma of roast slight chocolate. Really just roast, some creamy Ness as well. Black with brown head. Coffee chocolate dominated by an overall roast. Good.

Smells of dark chocolate and coffee flavors. Small notes of raisin and hints of licorice. Dark black color, small beige head. Light sweetness with medium bitterness. Its a very full, heavy beer. medium carbonation. A very excellent Imperial Stout.

S: Oak, dark dried fruits, alcohol at the fore - dark chocolate and coffee to follow. All toasted.
A: Pours black, though not too thick - faded mocha head that dissipates quickly
T: Dry - toasted oak and caramel - toffee sweetness lined with alcohol
P: Thin for a stout - active carbonation - lingers well
O: Good stout, not amazing. Would definitely drink again, though I am anxious to get my hands on the bourbon/brandy barrel aged black cauldrons

pours pitch dark with a rich and foamy thick head. Smoky coffee and chocolate aroma, and incredible taste to follow. Hits sweet right away, gets rich with coffee and chox flavors, strong finish

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured into a snifter.
3.5 A: Black color. One and a half fingers of frothy light brown head. Retention is about average and a short ring of lacing is left.
4.0 S: This smells absolutely wonderful. Deep roastiness with plenty of sweetness to make this a rich, decadent treat for the nose. Chocolate, caramel, and hints of molasses.
3.5 T: Smells better than it tastes, but it’s not bad. Lots of roast, but not as sweet as I thought it would be. Less chocolate and caramel too. Moderate roasty bitterness.
3.0 M: Heavier medium body. A bit too much carbonation, but okay. Lacking creaminess.
3.5 D: Decent beer. I just wish it tasted like it smells.
Serving type: bottle

Bottle bought in Chicago 2011.
Almost black with a medium tan head. This was a relaxed Imperial Stout. Soft and easy to drink. A bit sweet with notes of "milk", roasted malt, some bitter chocolate and coffee. Descent.
