Sampled at an ESBLS tasting. It poured a black color with a tan head. The aroma was of chocolate, coffee, some chili spiciness and a little oats. The taste was of coffee, a chocolatey touch and a little pepper heat that is not overwhelming. Very tasty.

Strykzone (4931) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - OCT 10, 2012
Sampled at an esbls tastong. Black pour with no head. A really nice nose of coffee. Coffee leads and dominates. Some chocolate is lesser. Light complex fruit and pepper arrive late. A fine beer.

Bottle. Pours a pitch black color with a small mocha colored head. Aroma is lots of coffee, slight tingling spice from the chilies, subtle smoke, roasted malt, burnt notes, dark chocolate, dark fruits and dark caramel. The flavor follows the nose and as you drink it the more chili spice you get, but lots of coffee is dominant, roasted malt, burnt notes, subtle smoke, dark chocolate and caramel and dark fruits. The body is on the lighter side of full with a creamy mouth feel, with very light carbonation. Overall a pretty nice Interpretation of the Beer Geek Brunch Weasel, but I prefer the original.

Taste is sweet, bitter, malty and slightly spicy hot with roasted malts, sweet dark bread, quality dark chocolate, dark roast coffee, alcohol, smoked chili, mint, burnt caramel, toffee, wood and vanilla fudge. Mouthfeel is smooth, soft and near full bodied.

Originally rated on 05.10.2012 - Pours pitch black with a tiny sticky head. Aroma of roasty malts, hints of vanilla, coffee, chocolate, wood and hops. Taste is quite roasty and sweet with notes of warming chili, spices, vanilla and wood. Finish is sweetish and sticky with a lot of vanilla, chili, wood and spices. Okay, quite spicy but tasty imperial stout.

PhillyCraft (3222) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 7, 2012
On tap at the BBF. Poured a pitch black into my De Molen flute glass. Small tan head and lacing. Aromas of roasted coffee, chocolate bar, peppers, vanilla malt, and espresso. Taste is coffee, caramel, nuts, smoked grains, toast, peat, and some dates. Booze was hidden relatively well in this one, had a nice bitter coffee flavor but it wasnt overpowering. Solid Imperial.
