Robust and warming, this stout has hints of coffee and dark chocolate. A complex variety of roasted malts, and moderate hopping temper the pleasant sweetness of this brew. This special batch lurked in our cellar until our brewers felt it was worthy of its name.

hopscotch (10265) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 10, 2015
Bottle... Pours black with a mid-sized, creamy, deeply tanned head. Great retention. The roasty aroma expresses dark chocolate, espresso and fudge. Full-bodied with a silken mouthfeel and airy carbonation. The flavor is burnt and bitter - charcoal, ash and scorched coffee. Lengthy, bitter, carbonic finish. Bottle courtesy of ctipping!

Theydon_Bois (14326) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2015
Keg at the brewery, 17/02/15. Light black topped with a decent tan swirl. Nose is rich in malt, spice, chocolate, burnt toffee. Taste comprises roast malt, charr, spice, chocolate. Medium + body, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Ok impy, a touch basic perhaps but an easy drinker.

nearbeer (4392) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 1, 2015
750 ml. with label indicating 10.0% abv and bottling date of Dec 12, 2014. Big nose of semi-sweet chocolate, soy and an off-putting touch of rusty caramel. Look is opaque ebony with a creamy disc of foam on top. Tastes of soy, dark chocolate, mint, toffee and oxidization. Medium-heavy body is smooth with medium carbonation and has a good balance to all the big malts, never becoming sticky. The 10% is well disguised.

jbruner (3210) - Athens, Georgia, USA - FEB 25, 2015
Pours a deep brownish black from the bottle with bubbly brown head. Aroma is tobacco and earth over roast and dark chocolate. Taste follows, today is subdued and earth comes out more. Big and thick mouth, booze is well hidden. A nice imperial stout, but nothing too exciting.

Pours a dark dark brown color with a cappuccino colored head. Aroma is chocolate, molasses, brown sugar, roasty, nutty, caramel, super malt. Taste is bitter chocolate, burnt caramel, nutty, roasty. Overall a good hearty stout for the winter, best drank slightly warm.

Dr_Fellini (984) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Bottle to glass. Pours a thick syrupy malty brown ale with a molasses character, very prominent in the flavor. Thick, syrupy, delicious. Very tasty.
