thedm (5139) - Fort Wayne, USA - JUL 23, 2015
This draft brew from a restaurant poured a head of foamy light brown colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a opaque black brown colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was malty. The semi-thick mouth feel was strongly tingly at the start and mediumly tingly at the finish with a lingering dark malt aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of roasted malt mild licorice burnt malt brown malt dark malt and hops. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

Mr_Abner (176) - Michigan, USA - MAY 18, 2015
Bottle. Pours black with a beige head. Aromas of chocolate, roasted malts, vanilla, slight alcohol. Taste is similar: chocolate, vanilla, dark roasted cold brewed coffee, roasted malts. A medium sweetness, though I really like the balance between that and the bitterness. Medium+ bodied, a touch creamy, flavors linger in the finish. This really is a delicious beer.

wlajwl (4618) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Aroma is chocolate, dark malts and lactic sweetness. The flavor is chocolate, dark fruit/mildly vinous, dark malts and a mix of acidity/slight heat/warming heat in the finish.

Christpuncher (1950) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 16, 2015
This one is sweet and boozy to start with a strong bite at the finish. Notes of coffee, chocolate, and licorice. Pours black with a thin tan head from a bottle. Well done Russian imperial stout ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

patrick767 (3727) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 8, 2015
bottle - Pours black with a small tan head. It smells of dark roast malt, chocolate, and some coffee. It tastes similar with a solid balance of sweet malt and bitterness from ample hops with a finishing roasted character. Full bodied. Really good.

Petty decent. Woody hit at first, sweet vanilla and cherry finish with oily mouth feel. Good execution of style

schwabtana (21) - Madison Heights, Michigan, USA - MAR 9, 2015
Poured from 12oz bottle. Looks like a great RIS big head and pitch black. Loses me a little with the aroma and palate. Still a good RSI. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bigtaster (800) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 7, 2015
From a bottle into snifter. Black with medium sized light brown head. Nose cocoa, caramel, roasted barley, some spices, nutmeg, yeast. Full bodied, medium carbonation, sweet and dry, almost a body of a foreign stout. Black patent malt in the finish. As it warms the body seems to get lighter. Really unique interpretation of the style and enjoyable.
