DuffMan (6865) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 16, 2013
Bottle, shared with Parksy and Grippitis. This followed the Bruery Tart of Darkness, so it probably scores a little higher from me, since it satisfied my dark malt craving that I failed to find in the sour Tart. Deeply roast and thickly malty, soy sauce, molasses, coffee, vanilla all in that order of participation. Moderately bitter finish. Not sure why this scores so low, as it drank well with me.

changeup45 (1717) - Mount Dora, Florida, USA - JAN 4, 2013
This pours black with a thin tan head which leaves some spotty lacing. The aroma has some chocolate, molasses, coffee, and toasted oats. The flavors start off a bit sweet with caramel, molasses, and milk chocolate. However, it finishes roasty and bitter with grains, bitter coffee, and unsweetened dark chocolate. Theres some heft to this making it a smaller doses beer for me. While not incredibly exciting, it is a pretty well done Imperial Stout.

Thisis12ptfont (838) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - DEC 23, 2012
Big coffee, chocolate and malted barley on the nose. Black in color with a purple tint. Mellow flavors of rich cocoa, coffee beans, burnt caramel and some oats. Nice alcohol presence on the finish. Overall, its pretty good. Nothing too special or outstanding about this one. Just a mellow stout. Id give this a C+ rating.
