Philly Craft Beer Festival. Small plastic sample cup. Woody brown with a dark tan head. Coffee caramel nose, some hay. Nutty bittersweet chocolate with a citrus finish.

Not usually my favorite brewery, but this is beautiful black with a frothy chocolate head, and falling brown sediment. Taste is clearly chocolate and coffee.

hopdog (8796) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2007
On tap at the Independence Brew Pub. Poured a dark black color with red and brown edges with a smaller sized tan head. Aroma reminded me of rootbeer candy, smokey wood, anise and chocolate. Tastes of some dark fruits (raisins and plums), roast chocolate and anise.

pobenohne (504) - Northern Liberties, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 28, 2005
Draft at Split thy Skull X. Another amazing Imperial Stout: silky texture, subltle (for a stout) roasted, coffee and chocolate flavors. Chewy and clean.

egajdzis (5270) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 26, 2005
Poured an opaque black color with a tan head that left lacing on the glass. Aroma of light roast, chocolate, and anise. Taste of roasted coffee, smoke, chocolate, lightly vinous, with some light vinous character and no alcohol. Dry finish.

Pours dark black with a nice brown head. Smells nice and chocolatey with hints of alcohol which come up some what in the taste as well. Very nice and smooth. This was much better then the Oatmeal Stout in my mind. They should make this a regular.
