For a 10% abv stout, this falls far short of expectations on the body scale. Relatively thin and watery, I would have guessed a porter if tasted blind. Some chocolate sweetness and charred woods, but not a lot going on. Pff

jbruner (2557) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JAN 23, 2015
Pours an opaque brownish black from the bottle with thin ring of tan brown head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of deep roast and earthy soy. Taste is way better, dark chocolate over roast and sweet malt. Thick sweetness, nice bitter middle, thick with light carbonation.

bluejacket74 (1428) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - DEC 21, 2014
22 ounce bottle, 2014 edition. Served in a DFH snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with maybe an inch tan head that stuck around a while. There’s also a good amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like dark fruit, molasses, roasted malt, bittersweet chocolate and some coffee. I think the taste is similar to the aroma, but with some milk chocolate, vanilla, and a bit of licorice noticeable. I think the strongest flavors are the molasses and dark fruity ones at first, with the chocolate kicking in more after a while. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit slick and creamy with moderate carbonation. I think it’s a good overall imperial stout. At $5.99 a bomber, it’s definitely worth picking up at least once!

On tap at MacGregor’s with Joe and Dan H. Pours a deep black body with small head and light chocolate brown lacing. Aroma is espresso and roast. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of sweet chocolate malts, light roast. Very straight forward stout, very balanced and drinkable.
