Zeswaft (1361) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 15, 2007
I thought this was pretty good. Extremely full bodied. rich chocolate and creamy texture. not much aroma. Iím surpised this place had too extreme beers, barleywine and imperial stout.

2beerguys (299) - North Shore, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 14, 2007
Also known as Russian Imperial Stout

Dark brown appearance with a light-brown, fizzy head. Aroma is of faint burnt malts with alcohol presence. Initial taste is bitter, finishing with a heavy sweetness loaded with alcohol. Light to medium on the mouth, it has a watery to creamy texture with soft carbonation.

Very tame on the nose. Comes off more as a barleywine than a stout. Alcohol slaps you across the face. The score here is not the whole story however, as this beer will certainly knock you on your ass. It is well-crafted, however does not do much to separate itself from the pack. Reviewed on January 20th, 2007.

puzzl (3249) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 12, 2007
On tap at the brewery. Light malts, beets, molasses. Not assertive enough. Light smoke. Nice thick palate, a bit of peanuts, veggies. Not nearly big enough for what itís trying to be.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4785) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 26, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2007 Sampled on draft at the brewery. The beer poured a black color with a small tan head. The aroma is lightly sweet and has a floral hop undertone. The mouthfeel is moderately thick. The flavor is moderately strong roasted malts with a mild chocolate element and light floral hops underneath. The beer turns a bit bitter towards the finish. A nicely drinkable if uninspired Imperial Stout.
