A: Pours black ale with a single finger of dark mocha head. This sticks around for quite some time and leaves strong and persistent lacing. Canít see through this one. Great appearance.
S: complex. Dark chocolate, milk chocolate, toffee, graham, figs, nougat, caramel. Hops are resiny, piney, earthy.
T: Dark and sweet and bitter. The beer is multilayered. coated with coffee, soil, dates, and hops. The meat is chocolate, toffee, anise, dark malts. Finishes with plenty of charred cocoa and coffee.
M: Thick and creamy. Fine carbonation. Slick at the edges and dry centrally.
O: This beer is outstanding. I donít believe the adjusted variations Iíve had so far are as good as the original.
Serving type: bottle

I really like this. A beer to sip and savor. Kind of reminds me of nibbling on a rum filled cherry wrapped in dark chocolate. Perfect beverage to savor as I watch the snow fly outside. Good job great divide !!

I bagged this mythical beast in a yeti sized 22oz bottle. It pours out a monstrous dark midnight black with a dark coffee brown head. Strong coffee and chocolate smell comes out of this one. The taste is a thick chocolate/malt mixture. Pure awesomeness. The aftertaste is a little bitter, but in a good way. The bitterness from the malt is balanced well with the chocolate. Great beer. I would love to try to capture this huge beast again in the future. In my opinion.

Bottle from world beers. Pours a viscous black. Dark tan head. Scent of chocolate, coffee and a little alcohol. Nice chocolate flavor. Smooth, nice burn. Booze lingers. Beautiful.

Wow. Incredible aroma... nice roasted and chocolate malts. Inky black with a nice light brown head. For me, the ETOH was much too strong. Iíve had other imperial stouts where the alcohol didnít dominate the flavor profile, but that was the case for me here. Somewhat disappointed.

Dark thick pour...with a dark cherry colour head. Aromas of roasted malts and bitter chocolate. Full bodied taste,,,,starts sweet with a lingering bitter chocolate flavour and a espresso finish. Good complexity

This stout is intense in flavor and in hoppiness. The black color and the huge head are good indicators of the intense taste. This is a stout for those who like extremes.

Good dark beer. Very nice sweet, chocolate taste. However, the taste fades away pretty quickly. Watery aftertaste.

Una delle migliori interpretazioni americane di imperial stout. Cioccolato e aroma di caffť si amalgamano nel suo corpo denso e cremoso, chiudendosi in una luppolatura leggera che Ť il contributo americano a questo stile. Una pietra miliare delle imperial stout díoltreoceano.
