ZFCapital (5) - middleton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 16, 2012 does not count
not a huge fan of the stout by itself but absolutely perfect for a float: one scoop vanilla ice cream and a good 8-10 oz pour on top make a great night cap.

Bottle bought at random liquor store in Las Vegas. Opaque, black liquid with small mocca head. Aroma of coffee, licorice, dark chocolate, fruity yeast esters and tar. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter with notes of coffee, ash, licorice and fruity hops. Medium bodied with a bit high carbonation and velvety, smooth mouthfeel. Good for a $4 bomber.

Bottle at SIBF 2012. Smallish dark tan head on a black brew. Dark roasted malts and some cured meats on the nose. Flavor brings coffee and some brown sugar. Really not bad at all!

jcwattsrugger (11071) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JUN 29, 2012
opened this 12oz bottle, then went to get my glass. OOPS, foam over. Pours black with a light brown head. Aroma is roasty dark malt-cocoa/molasses. Taste is Sour cherry, roasty dark malt-cocoa/molasses, earthy hops. Lively carbonation for the style. Dont think they were trying for a chocolate covered cherry...

nuplastikk (4271) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 29, 2012
12oz bottle. Lively gushing pour. Opaque brown-black with a rusty orange head. Pretty well balanced and drinkable Imperial Stout. A solid milk chocolate flavor, with a respectable hop balance. Big and rich, but not quite overbearing and undrinkable. Some light coffee tones, dry bitterness. Thick and hefty, a solid offering.

Draft. Black, dirty brown head. Aroma of powdery cocoa and coffee grounds. Taste is smooth coffe and chocolate. Light body. Not bad.
