A dark rich black stout utilizing humongous amounts of roasted barley, black malt, flatted barley and Warrior, Green Bullet and Willamette hops. Thick enough to fill potholes!

500ml swing cap shared at the Central Jersey BA gathering. Poured a silky black body with a huge frothy dark beige head. Aroma/flavor of burnt marshmallows, dark toast, soy sauce, cola and a touch of tobacco. Smooth body, lighter carbonation and a silky mouthfeel. Good beer.

Pours black like, well, tar. I good sized head that get the top cloudy to the bottom. Great lacing. The Taste is of sweet molasses and coca, roasted barley and dark fruits. Great balance. It’s very warming. Excellent brew.

Very rich dark stout with a gorgeous tan head leaving lots of lacing. Big malt flavours with a full mouthfeel. A great one!

Pours thick and black. Licorice and malt on the nose; perhaps coffee notes as well. Medium dark tan head that leaves spotty lacing. The head lasts for a minute or so, which I like. This is a full bodied stout that is a pleasure on the palate with a full mouth feel.

Beer pours a solid black colour with a generous light brown head that laces well. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, and dark chocolate. Mouthfeel is full bodied and mildly carbonated. Flavour is pretty one dimensional with the coffee and dark chocolate dominating.

Reimer96 (1414) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 5, 2014
Pours an opaque black with a frothy brown head. Aroma of roasted barley, chocolate, cocoa, anise, fennel and sweet black licorice. Taste is black licorice, anise, fennel, dark chocolate, roasted malt and coffee bitterness. Excellent full bodied imperial stout that has lots of black licorice flavor but very complex and balanced. Howe sound has done it again!

hopscotch (9832) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 13, 2014
Bottle... Pours nearly black. Olfactory standouts are fudge and vanilla. Full-bodied with a velvety mouthfeel and lazy carbonation. The flavor is an intermingling of roasty, sweet, dark chocolate malts and medium bitter hops. Finishes sweet and chocolaty.

daknole (9796) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Pretty much black in color with a deep brown head. Roasty up front followed by a really nice hit of chocolate and espresso notes. Good hop flavor without being overly bitter. Oily body. Good.
