Draft at proof. Black pour small tan head. Aroma of roasted grains coffee chocolate some notes of caramel. Good mouth feel well balanced. Pronounced bitterness leads to a dry finish. Taste wouldn’t make me think imperial but still very tasty. Definitely worth having again.

Pours dark black with almost no head and very thin lacing. Smell is heavy roasted malt, hint of smoke, chocolate. Taste is dark roasted malt, a bit smoky, earthy wood notes, hint of molasses. Expected a lil more for being Imperial, but pretty tasty.

Growler shared thanks to marshal_zhukov! Pours a thick black with bubbly tan head that dissipates to leave good lace. Aroma is sweet molasses, chocolate, nice roast middle, and a hint of smoke on the back end. Taste follows, more roast than sweet, hint of woodiness. Good stuff.

Opaque black. Really dry for an imperial. Coffee roast in the nose. Solid but not a stellar version of the style.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Poured a black color with an average frothy tan head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted chocolate sweet malt aroma. Medium to heavy toasted chocolate sweet malt flavor with a medium to heavy dark sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a solid beer.

I had this one at the brewery’s tasting room. It poured out an opaque black with a tan head. The aroma is roasted coffee and chocolate. The taste is sweet and has notes of espresso. This is a very enjoyable beer.

Growler thanks to Matt. Split!
A: Firm black with a cappuccino head. Great retention. Has some sticky lacing.
N:Plenty of coffee and cocoa. Whirled peas and some almond. A touch of caramel and vanilla. Leans towards the heavy espresso. Wish it didn’t have the pea flavor though it does fade as time goes on.
T: Bitter roasted coffee with a hint of malt sweetness to balance.
M: Very dry and somewhat oily. Good thick body, but it’s a bit sharp at points.
O: Technically proficient, there’s a lot of reason to enjoy this. Calm and very much coffee forward.

On tap at Vine & Barley. Pours a very dark brown with a tannish head. Aroma is of chocolate, coffee and caramel, with charcoal. Taste is of choco/caramel with rich roasted malts. Body was medium to full. Lot of flavor. Finishes smoothly sweetly rich with just that tick of roughness from the "charcoal". A nice one that I enjoyed, with ck1, Eric and Ken. Should look for more from this brewer.
