GABF 2011. Black with a thin beige head. Aroma of funky yeasty roasted black malt, a faint tone of oats. Tastes of toasted dark chocolate malts, oats, licorice, and black grains. Medium bodied with no linger. Very malty, but also kinda burnt tasting with only medium sweetness. Wasnít really into it.

Black pour, nice brown head. Roasty aroma, some chocolate, pure and syrup, and some ash. Flavor is bitter with a tad more sweetness than I expected. Ashy, prunes, chocolate. Pretty good stuff.

Bottle. Pours black with a creamy light brown head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma is full of roasted malts with some light chocolate and a hint of coffee. Flavor begins with roasted malts and coffee (a bit weak) but has a nice creamy chocolate finish.

PlinyTheMiddle (12) - Texas, USA - SEP 1, 2011
Roasty and chocolate malt aroma, and boozy on the nose. Itís pitch black with a dark tan head that quickly fizzles down. The taste is fairly complex, but in a muddled way.

Pours black with a tan head. Smells of coffee, chocolate, tabacco, leather and oats. Taste coffee, chocolate and some creaminess. Mouthfeel is thick and the finish is roasted bitter.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - JUL 17, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pours a deep black with rich chocolate head. Aroma of dark roast and chocolate. Flavor is the same and very malty with bitter-sweet chocolate and nice dark roast bitterness. Mouthfeel is heavy and creamy with low carbonation. Overall, excellent stout!

Suttree (5224) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 11, 2011
Well, itís black, as is to be expected from a stout. Smells like coffee, a bit ashy, and a chocolatey, too. Very heavy mouthfeel, very smooth and rich. Flavor is coffee and dark chocolate. Alcohol is well hidden - I didnít realize it was an imperial stout until I came to rate it. It also lacks any of the fruity, boozy characteristics Iíve come to associate with imperial stouts. Thatís not really a complaint, though, I enjoyed it quite a bit - even on a 90+ degree afternoon. Thanks, secret santa!

Nice beer. Alcohol is hidden well. Not marked on the bottle and no mention of "Imperial". Great mouth and body. Chocolate malts and creaminess. Pours black with lasting tan head.
