On, tap, Pours a pitch black color with a medium tan head tan that leaves pretty good lacing. Smells of roasted malt, chocolate, raisins, plums, and caramel. Tastes of all the same things in the smell. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy with good carbonation. Overall this was an awesome imperial stout lots of different flavors which was nice.

Canada tick bro in the heart of da souf. Pours the part with a light lacing trail. Itís tough to follow the intricacies of this brew with billy bob asking what home brew is in the can. Letís start wif a day NYS home brew I shat last week... But I digress. Some licourice, mild espresso all wrapped in a full bodhi. Fuck @waynefish1 for ever.

tmoreau (2724) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAR 19, 2015
Shared 32 oz. bottle, poured to snifters, showing a black/brown hue, with a presentable layer of frothy, brownish tan, head foam, and clingy dots & dashes of lacing. The nose was subtly roasted, with some cocoa, but a stronger scent of prune & raisin. Medium+ bodied, with fair carbonation, the taste included hop bitterness that offered roasted, woody, & earthy qualities, a touch of treacle sweetness, and some alcohol presence. Decent, hearty brew.

asheft (2623) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 10, 2015
Bottle. Sweet and resinous chocolate aroma with some red fruit and vanilla. Opaque black with clear brown highlights under an eternal, creamy tan flannel blanket. Potent dark chocolate and pumpernickel and vanilla flavour with light sherry, nutty notes and very faint red fruit. Full body, moderate carbonation, slightly warming.

Bahumat (131) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 9, 2015
Mmm. Thick white head that lingers, with a nice mouthfeel, and the longest deep cocoa finish. Yum. This is a great beer to pair with spicy steaks. Lives up to its name. Overall: 3.8. Would buy again.

dmac (4438) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - FEB 7, 2015
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.

AncreSteam (5) - - NOV 28, 2014 does not count
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.
