Pours almost black in the glass with a beige head. Aroma has coffee with some chocolate, there is also some sugar.Taste is very smooth with an espresso quality and some cocoa powder. Mild bitter finish that gives the beer great balance.

kdm1984 (814) - Missouri, USA - JUL 11, 2013
Pours dark (duh) with quite the ample head. Fairly complex, but not super strong, aroma of chocolate, cranberries, and some roastiness and breadiness. Flavor follows suit with quite a bit of tang in the mid-palate. Some bitterness in the end notes; the aftertaste lets the roast shine for several minutes. Very well-balanced. Mouthfeel is full without feeling too thick or syrupy. Nice double stout that is a break from the standard impy. Very nicely done. A good slow sipper to savor.

A very black body with a thin brown head and lacing. The aroma has lots of dark chocolate and coffee with a slight earthiness. The flavor has chocolate and some hops up front with a long coffee aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ThreeCats (801) - ISRAEL - OCT 12, 2013
Quite black with a nice solid mocha head. Aroma of heavy roast, lots of bittersweet chocolate, espresso. Taste of lots of black coffee, espresso, roast, bitter chocolate that lasts long into the palate. This beer has a lot of "chocolate" action going, but itís not sweet. Itís all dark high-coco percent bitter chocolate stuff. Very nice.

KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - APR 15, 2013
12oz Bottle. The pour was a muddy jet black with an average (1-2 finger) tan creamy head that lasted throughout, and produced excellent sheets of streaky lacing. The aroma was bold of a roasty bread malt and a leathery yeast with notes of bakerís chocolate, dark roasted coffee and a hint of dark fruit (raisons and prunes). The taste was a tad bitter, very malty with a bold roasty overtone and a hint of creamy bitter chocolate from the get go, progressing with a big dose of roasted coffee, a light fruity sweetness and a decent alcohol ending. The flavor lasted a nice long while proceeding the swallow, with a bold roasty alcohol presence left behind to linger on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was extremely full in body with a dry, creamy texture and a lively carbonation. Overall this was a very impressive Imperial Stout and even though it was simple and basic, it did possess an awesome drinkability and great flavor. Just goes to show sometimes simple and basic works the best... www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2011 Bomber. Black coffee colored with an inch of thick cappuccino head. Aroma is sweet roasted malt and Kahlua. Taste begins with strong toasted malt sweetness and caramel followed by bittersweet chocolate and coffee liqueur. It finishes slightly dry and smoky with some mild coffee bitterness. The overall flavor is sweet, smooth and silky.

Bottle. Nose is cola, blackcurrent, lots of cherry, orange undercut by some earthy coco notes. Taste is dark chocolate, vanilla, berry, hints of coffee, chocolate ice cream, banana, slight smoke in the aftertaste, caramel. Silky mouthfeel. This is a very nice beer, that has a lovely depth.
