Huge in every way possible. That’s one of the things I love about stouts. They are unmistakeable. Shared this beer with my brothers after Thanksgiving dinner and man...very well received. The beer glugged out of the bottle, looking more like used motor oil than a delicous beer. Huge notes of bakers chocolate, coffee and roasted malts. Deep black hue, with a dark brown one-finger thick head. Soft and creamy mouthfeel. Deep complex notes of tobacco, roasted malts, coffee, vanilla, molasses, and molasses. Beautiful, beautiful beer.

This beer gives me something to strive for. The closest thing to perfection I have yet to find from a RIS. Pours a beautiful dark black with a dark tan head. wonderful chocolate and oatmeal aromas. The first taste is an experience all it’s own. Truelly heaven. This is the necter of the gods. So far, my favorite RIS.

Bottle @ thewolf tasting. Pours pitch black with a light brown good lasting head. Aroma of roasted malt, alcohol and chocolate. Great smooth filling mouthfeel. The flavour has lots of chocolate, roasted malt, coffee , some alcohol and a good hoppiness. Very well balanced. Very good smooth roasty, chocolate bitter finish.

JAXSON (533) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 25, 2007
22 oz. bottle. Pours deep brown with a nice caramel head. Great lacing with thousands of tiny bubbles clinging to the glass. Rich aroma of some kind of good coffee and bitter chocolate. Wine-like notes also, which reminded me of Dogfish Head Worldwide Stout and is pretty wonderful. Flavor is heavy, kind of bitter up front and creamy and lush in the finish. Very impressive, especially because this is not my favorite style by any stretch. Bitterness is prominent but there’s more complex flavors than just the typical coffee. It becomes a little bit heavy and burdensome after time though. Still, one of the best stouts I’ve had, and a nice surprise.

Bottle @ tasting at my place.
[thank you, drmatt]
This ended up being the ’star of the show’. Pours pitch-black with a thick, creamy brown head. Wonderful lacing on my glass. Aroma is sweet but complex. Very malty, chocolate dominating, but there is so much more. Extremely creamy and full mouthfeel. Flavour has toffee, chocolate, lightly vinious, some coffee. Wonderful balance between a stunning amount of maltiness and a great bitterness from hops at the end. Wonderful, wonderful beer.

Have had a couple of these in trades with the Ohio crew. Pours just like a Expedition. Thick and flat. It is very dark and has a bitter chocolate nose. Yeah, there is some espresso and hops, but the chocolate is pretty much at the front. Drinking this is like eating some kind of chewy choclate candy bar.

What a nice Imperial Stout. Pours thick and syrupy, with a blackness that could suck the light out of the sun. The head is minimal but a lace ring clung to the glass ’til the end. The aroma of roasted chocolate and coffee greets your nose as you bring the glass to your face. It tastes of bitterness and sweetness in one, a good balance that seems to improve as the beer sits in open air. The carbonation is mild at best, and the mouth feel and body are seductively silky. A great bottle to pick up if you love this style.
