Bottle, pours dark mahogany with a thick tan head. Aroma is coffee and roasted hops. Taste of coffee, chocolate and a little vanilla. Creamy with a bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chinchill (3588) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 15, 2016
12 oz bottle with a BB date stamp of Oct. 2015 purchased earlier in the day at a World Market. Pours a very dark red-brown looking black and opaque in the shaker pint glass. Decent head and some lacing. Excellent mouthfeel despite indications of high ABV: very smooth and full. The aroma too is quite nice. While I certainly like the flavor it is about average, for style. Overall: a bit disappointing given the brewery and the favored style.

Bottled. Really overly bitter. Not much alcohol burn at all. Bitterness lingers. Not great.

Bebum (608) - - NOV 20, 2015
Opaque, no lace, leaves glass clean. Earthy nose. Medium body and flavor, smooth texture, high heat but low carbonation, avg length. Mildly bitter, not dry, low acidity, well balanced. Medium strength roast flavors, coffee, hint of chocolate. Nothing special but nothing bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A slightly thinner than usual and more bitter than usual imperial stout. Still get some coffee and chocolate, even a hint of smoke. OK, but doesn’t really do it for me as my favorite style.

I feel like this beer is so close to wondrous but somehow missing the mark. All the flavors are there just not enough of it. A year of aging would help tremendously and hopefully help the banal ale finish

geologyguy (1165) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - SEP 6, 2015
Slightly smoky smell which is awesome, couldn’t quite see appearance in mug or bottle, taste is heavy, slightly smoky mostly coffee heavy malt that stays on palate forever, bit bitter after the sip that slightly intensifies over time, would score a little higher if it lost a touch of the bitterness

Black with rimming Lacy tan head; aroma is sweet and roasty with hint of prunes; flava is tangy roasty slightly smoky; feels light to medium fizzy; finishes dry roasty smoky wood

Run of the mill imp stout. Flavor is thinner and everything is lighter. This is a imperial stout light. Not a bad beer but closer to a regular stout.
