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.

cheap (4625) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 8, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2013 Had this again, but it smelled beter....old rating - Sampled at the Bocktown in a frog greenglass from a bottle. BORIS; Bodacious, Oatmeal, Russian, Imperial, Stout...and it is. Black and relatively viscous, somewhat like used shovelhead oil. Has a pretty good aroma, smells more like a sweet stout. Roasty and attractive to the olfactory. First taste however erases any inkling that this is sweet. It is bitter and intimidating with barely any carbonation. Rude and crude. Perfect example of this dreaded style. Leaves a bitter lingering finish that is hard to forget.

Et af højdepunkterne, tak til Bager.Sort med et lækkert creamet mørkt kaffe skum.Kaffe,bitter choko, godt ristet. Sødlig i smagen men også masser af bitter choko og kaffe. Føles blød og rigtig fyldig, olieret. God afslutning og en smag som ikke forsvinder med det samme. Guf guf!
