Draft - black body with a medium brown head. Big, smooth malty aroma with that "something" different that oatmeal stouts have - oats, perhaps? Big, chewy body. Malty, chocolatey with a touch of coffee in the finish. There is much going on here! Just an ecellent beer!

My 300th!! Pours a deep, dark opaque black color with a dark brown head. Aroma is of chocolate, roasted malts, hint of fruit, molasses, slightly coffee. Flavor is of dark roasted malts, chocolate, molasses, oatmeal, with a bitter finish. Fantastic mouth feel!!! Very rich and creamy.

Pours a huge, deep black color with a large, rocky brown head. Giant nose, roasted malts and sweetness rule here, like a fresh box of decadent cereal. Sweet chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, maybe even almonds are found in the thick, rich body. Nice bitter finish. Definitely a big beer, but drinks smoothly. ABV is deceptive. Great advice by Ron at V. Estates, try this today!

Cbkshubert busted out another 22oz. Bottle at the Mesa Gathering. Good roasted malts on the nose. Black body and tan head. Good roasted cold coffee flavor. Mild sweet roasted malt aftertaste on palate. A good smooth stout. Thanks Craig.

Black pour with dense very dark tan head. Man this looks thick. Nice looking beer. The dark head distributes lacing around the glass. Aroma of cocoa, dark chocolate, and a little hops as well. Rich bitter roast flavors, with a slight heat in the finish. There’s imp stouts out there that have a more complex and fuller taste experience, but the palate here is great and makes for a great drinking experience.

Duane shared this bottle with me. Thanks Dad! The first thing I remember about this one is that it was BLACK! I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a beer this dark. Aroma was mainly roasted malt and some dark chocolate. Flavor was strong on roasted malts with some bitter chocolate and coffee playing around on your tongue as well. This is a great offering from a relatively new brewery (they’re new to me anyway).

Word to brewblackhole for forwarding this impressive drink. It’s an Impy stout so I won’t bore you with the talk of it’s black color and roasted aromas and flavors. It is like drinking a thick chocolate milk in terms of consistency. It finishes with a faint almost unnoticeable alcoholic bite. Their are more original impy stouts out there but this one gets the requisite flavors and experiences spot on.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 1, 2007
Pours wtih a black body topped by a medium thick, brown head and some lacing. Slightly sweet and malty with a nice roastiness and some coffee notes with an underlying chocolate note. Full bodied and a touch dry.

Bottle. Opaque black in color. No head. Light, sudsy lace that slowly empties into glass. Black coffee, roasted nut, fudge. Hints of grapes and other fruity scents. Really distinguished itself via flavoring. initial chocolate nut taste followed by tangy, fruity finish. Residual coffee ground taste lingers in the throat. Solid and distinctive but not overly pleasing to me.
