AirForceHops (2972) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 30, 2013
22 oz. bottle from Nikki’s Liquors. Dark black color with really nice tan, full head. Lots of lace.Nose is charred malt, bitter chocolate with a tad of booze. Flavor is of a young imperial stout. It’s a bit green and harsh. Chocolate malt, charred ash, bitter sweet malts with a touch of booze. At 9.7 a bit hot and would mellow really nice with some time. Overall still a nicely made Impy stout.

Pours black with ruby hues and a medium creamy mocha head. Aroma has notes of dark fruits, bitter dark chocolate, and booze. Flavor has coffee and mild smokiness with significant dark bakers chocolate. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is chocolatey/smokey and dry/bitter.

Richmond 19th. Black. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, a bit of pepsin. Flavor is a match. Really nice. Maybe not crazy complex, but enjoyable, and with a flavor profile I really liked.

Bottle. The look is dark, very dark, black color, and tannish head. The smell is roasty, malts, chocolate, coffee, peanut butter, desserts, and rich. The taste is really roasty, coffee, chocolate, rich, espresso, and good.

beerbill (3331) - Laurel, New York, USA - NOV 3, 2013
22 oz. bottle purchased at Vickers Liquors in Newport, RI. Pours a lovely dense black with a moderate-large bubbly chocolate brown head that lasted until mid-glass and left ample lace. Very pleasant aroma of chocolate, plums, coffee, and roasted malt. The flavor is equally enjoyable with lots of chocolate, and roasted malt with lesser amount of plum and coffee. Fairly smooth and silky on the palate. Full bodied. Very good representation of the style.
