Goodgrief (1782) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - MAY 25, 2014
On tap Wilmington. I don’t understand the non-awesome ratings on this. It’s the Russian Impy infused with chocolate ? Dark pour, one finger head. Aroma of chocolate and coffee. Sweet, but not cloying. Loads of cocoa, hints of vanilla and a strong roasted base. Worth making a special trip for.

ROGUE (2096) - Newark, Delaware, USA - OCT 29, 2012
On tap at Iron Hill Wilmington. Pours a deep black color with a half finger light tan head that dissapates quickly. Smell is huge dark chocolate and milk chocolate with a hint of vanilla. Taste starts with a sweet dark chocolate flavor, followed by some licorice notes and roasted malt. The finish brings in a chocolate syrup sweetness followed by a burnt roastiness. Full bodied, creamy texture. Finish is semi dry and intensely bitter, lingering on the palate for some time.

TheEpeeist (3332) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 5, 2012
On tap at Iron Hill Wilmington. Dark brown with a tan head. Nose is chocolate, vanilla, coffee and caramel. Medium to full body, coating with a seltzery tingle. Taste is intense dark chocolate with a balancing raw bite, i would guess from the nibs. Vanilla is less prominent mingling with slightly bitter espresso, citrus peel and molasses. Delicious without being too sweet and desserty.
