emacgee (4009) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - SEP 14, 2007
Poured like oil, thick black. Not quite as black as perfect, but pretty damn close. Thin chestnut brown head. The aroma is sweet, chocolate shows, coffee big time, caramel, mild alcohol, molasseses. The flavor is huge on coffee, then chocolate, sweet molasses, alcohol, citrusy hops, dark cherries when it warms. the palate is smooooooth, slides across the tongue with the aid of oatmeal.

stevec (21) - Galena, Illinois, USA - SEP 14, 2007
22 Oz. Bomber in Galena Il. Pours deep black like a can of oil. Incredibly thick, coffee hits the nose immediately. Chocolate is first on the palate with a pleasant sweeteness that follows with a coffee aftertaste. A light warmth is left on the finish. Absolutely delicious and reasonably priced at $12.

Nephilium (1348) - Ohio, USA - SEP 1, 2007
Aroma with hints of coffee, chocolate, and a touch of alcohol. This pours jet black, with a dark tan head that quickly fades away. Nice flavor of smoke, coffee, and a touch of chocolate. Alcohol is amazingly well hidden in the flavor. Very smooth and creamy mouthfeel to the beer. Overall, a really tasty and reasonably priced Imperial Stout.

Sammy (8566) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2007
Bold roasty flavour, almost wafting several feet. Some material head. Dark black. Very full mouthfeel, breakfast in the glass. A prominent sourness, yet well balanced by caramel maltiness yet not too sweet, cocoa, creamy milk chocolate, nutty and cherry and drinkable. Outstanding RIS, oatmeal stout, beer thanks to Aofoxxy. I left one glass for 24 hours for my buddy and he thougt it was good even then.

Thanks to Miketd for the bomber! Pours thick and pitch black. two finger that slowly disapates to fine film around the rim of the glass. Nice lacing as well. Aroma is chocolate, malts and coffee. Wonderful oats, malts, coffee and light hints of smoke. finish with a nice milk chocolate flavor. simply spectacular!

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 20, 2007
Bottle thanks to either Puddintane or Matt Capone - either way, thanks!!! Big blackish pour with a light tannish head. Aroma is big and creamy with lots of chocolate, smooth coffee, and some hefty doses of sugary malts. Flavor is big, roasty, creamy and sweet - coffee, dark & milk chocolates, and a nice bitter hop bite. Really good and silky smooth. Tried alongside a Siberian Night and found it much sweeter, creamier, and having a better overall aroma + a better mouthfeel - both fine beers crafted (or invented) by the same hands.

hopson (635) - Williamsville, New York, USA - AUG 16, 2007
Yum!!! Bottle- Chocalate/coffee aroma, tan head that never fades, super silky mouthfeel, with a delicous roasted flavor that is not as astringent as many imp stouts. Almost as if the brewer roasted coffee directly on your tongue to the point of nearly burning the beans. Wow! Thanks to estoppel.
