12floz/355ml bottle into a tulip glass; served cool. Aroma: Daaaaaaaaamn that is boozy. It smells like someone basically poured the darkest chocolate you have ever had into a glass. Chocolate and booze. I can get behind that. Appearance: Let me just say that this is the blackest beer I have ever poured. It looks like ink coming out of the bottle. Minimal dark brown head that dissipates into nothing. Blackest black black I have ever black. Taste: Wow, once again, straight chocolate. This one doesnít mess around. Chocolate on top of chocolate. A little smoke, but itís chocolate smoke. Red Fox you so crazy. Palate: Silky smooth with a full body and a long long bittersweet finish. Overall: If youíre looking for a lot of diversity in the flavor profile, Red Fox isnít for you. If youíre looking for a sexy, chocolate filled stout, look no further. I love you, Red Fox.

I also received the most recently brewerd batch of these beer from a friend in Vegas. It is quite the beer. Pours thick with a great head. THe aroma is powerful and gets you ready for what you are about to taste. The flavors, whicl i can not pin point any flavors, there is a lot going on. Roasted, and a bit dry, the alcohol taste is not overpowering, and as a whole it leaves an enjoyable long lasting aftertaste. There is one thing thank can be said about JJ brewing co., there is a lot of balance in their beers, which a lot of brewers in my opinon, miss.

Ótima imperial Stout originada de Las Vegas, NV. Cor negra, com formacao media de espuma, desprende aroma de malte torrado típico do estilo, enriquecido pela adição de lúpulo e chocolate. Na boca, otimo corpo, com notas de cafe, baunilha, chocolate, com amargor médio, porém equilibrando a cerveja ate o seu final, seco. Retrogosto lembrando cafe e toffee. Excelente breja! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Lee Discount Liquor, Las Vegas
Black color, with brown head, short lived. Sweet aroma, with roasted malt and molasses. Full bodied, round; flavor of roasted malt, dark caramel, rich chocolate, molasses, touch of tobacco; medium sweetness. It has the expected strong bitterness, well blended together.
Very good, rich.

Tan head sits on this black ale. Typical aroma of coffee, chocolate and roasted malts. Quite a bit of bitterness is apparent. Low carbonation gives a thick mouthfeel and syrupy flow. Roasted malts and coffee give way to a lingering bitterness.

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.

Pretty strong coffee aroma. Roasty, a lot of coffee in this. Very consistent flavor throughout. Doesnít seem strong, but too much coffee flavor for my tastes.
