UPDATED: JUN 26, 2015 Deep strong and complex but still with real suppleness andinerality. Dense chocolate cake, smooth coffee and dark chocolate syrup with leather, some moist earth and a hint of oatmealy silkiness. Delicious and superbly built.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Opaque black color with no noticeable head to speak of. Aroma is sweet cocoa, reminiscent of baked brownies with cinnamon, raisins and Cuban coffee. Wonderful chocolate and coffee dark malt flavor upfront. Obvious warming alcohol feel. Complex yet smooth. Like drinking cold Mexican Hot Chocolate with a big boozy jolt. The smoothness comes from the oats. The complexity comes from the magic of the ingredients and craft of the Hoppin’ Frog Brewers. Well done.

Draft @ Beer Temple. Pours a pitch black beer with a big tanned head on top. Aroma has a big roasted note, coffee, caramel and something earthy. Flavor is sweet and dense, very thick and malty with a slight boozy note. Loads of sweetness and sticky mouthfeel. Good stuff for sure.

Amazing beer. Vintage nd. Deep black colour with rubins shades around the edge. Rich coffe, dark chocolate and dark fruits in the aroma. Low carbonation, medium to full bodied with a oily touch. The taste is very huge: coffee, chocolate, dark fruits in the aftertaste with a good balance between sweet and bitter. A little touch of alcohol but very well hidden. Great imperial stout, check it out if u can!
