12oz bottle from ABC on Button. Black pour with a big pillowy tan head. Sweet aroma - roasty, cocoa, dark fruit. Tastes are coffee, chocolate, little yeasty, syrup, booze, licorice, little juicy. Slick creamy palate. Not necessarily to taste, but lots going on and we’ll constructed.

Pours an opaque blank from the bottle with bubbly beige head that dissipates to leave decent lacing. Aroma of sweet chocolate and slight pomegranate note. Taste follows, is bubbly, effervescent, and a little thin. No hint of the booze, not bad but nothing that blows me away.

5000 (6178) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle:   Pours black, thin to moderate frothy beige head, spotty lacing.   Assertive pomegranate, roasted malt, and dark pitted fruit nose.   Smells very interesting, Imperial Stout like, but also fruity.   Smooth roastiness up front, backside has a strong pomegranate backside.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, albeit its very smooth and coats the mouth and tongue very well.   Slight roastiness and ashy backside, but still retains some fruity pomegranate aspects.   Interesting beer, and one I enjoyed more than I thought I would.

Bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs.; thanks burg326). Looks good; a dull black with mocha head that dissipates into lacing. Smells solid; dark malt, roast, and hops with some pomegranate notes. Tastes like it smells with some chocolate too. Nice on the palate. Enjoyable.

Garbageman (443) - Lexington, South Carolina, USA - APR 23, 2013
From bottle. Poured deep black with fizzy head. Aroma was all chocolate, dark roasted malt and coffee. Taste followed but the mouthfeel was horrible. Fizzed up like soda water as I drank.

AWISLguy (1143) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 19, 2013
Bottle from Total Wine in Jensen Beach. Pours an opaque black with a tan head. No real lacing. Aroma has molasses, roast, some soy, and liquid chocolate. And more liquid chocolate. Taste is of bakers chocolate, expresso, and molasses. Quite sweet and lactose-y. Probably a bit thin for a stout. Should be a sweet stout? Finishes sweetly bitter with some length. Interesting with nice flavors.

Beerathon (1066) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Deep malty richness with dark fruity subtle notes. This is a sipper. Thick black with huge cocoa head, truly beautiful in the glass. Booze in the nose. Very enjoyable.
