Pailhead (4783) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JUL 1, 2006
Bottle: Courtesy of Duane via trade. Aromas of cocoa, roasted coffee, and cream. Nice aroma, but not as big as I would expect from an Imperial Stout, especially one thatís 12%. Pours a dark brown with no transparency, a small beige head, and quite a bit of sediment floating around the edges of the glass. Starts with lots of roasted coffee and light roasted grain. Moderate dark chocolate follows along with some black licorice. Nutty and light piney hops in the finish. Absolutely no detection of the 12% alcohol in the flavor. Really hard to believe this beer is really that big. Mouthfeel is slightly oily but a tad thin for an Imperial. A solid Imperial Stout.

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2006 Itís not 12% or a classic Imperial but I do so want more. Complex. Finish could have more flavor and feel.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 26, 2006
Dark brown color with a smallish light tan head. A lactic stout aroma, with lightly sour milk and dark malts wafting about. Certainly smells like a supercharges milk stout. Earthy malt and raw sugars blend with coffee nip infused dark chocolate. Just a mild acidic bite to return the thoughts back to the milk stout beginning. A interesting brew. Thanks herzon.

acertain (249) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 5, 2006
Pours jet black with a moderate tan head. Intense coffee and chocoalte aromas with a hint of milk and sugar. Nice and soft in the mouth with not too much carbonation. Sweet up front with what I think is caramel. Finish is balanced and earthy. Really nice!

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - MAY 10, 2006
DL 06: Poured a clear very deep brown color with a tan head. Big malty sweet aroma of chocolate and coffee. Roasty malt flavors that matched the aroma. Medium body. Very warming . Fairly tasty brew.

Sampled at the 3Floydís Dark Lord party. Imperial? I donít think so. More akin to a Two Brothers Northwind. Then again, Iím trying it with Dark Lord much on my mind. Lighter in taste, then, than Iím looking for, but with a kind of okay fruity finish.

CaptainCougar (7131) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 3, 2006
Bottle shared by hezron at the 3/25/06 Milwaukee tasting: Pours a nearly opaque dark brown with a thin wispy, lightly-lacing tan head. Sweet dark fruity, lightly smoked caramel chocolate aroma. Starts with a mild earthy sweetness and pleasant lightly smoky dry earthy flavor with dark fruity complexity. Nicely balanced, lightly warming finish with lingering fresh bittering hoppiness. A decent imperial stout that should age pretty well.

Twelve percent? Wow, this was the thinnest 12% Iíve yet come across - more of a dark brown than the black I would expect - quite nutty, with quite a bit of artificial sweetness dominating - some earthy, woody notes try to make things interesting, but really donít.

Thanks to stonecrusher for this... Appears black with a small solid tan head that never fades out. Tons & tons of scattered lacing left all around the glass. Smell is of nutty black patent with a touch of lactose, caramel, anise seed, and coffee. Taste is of the same aromas. Mouthfeel is chewy, medium bodied, smooth, along with a semi-dry finish.

Thanks to weeare138. Pours a dark brown with some amber when held to light. Average tan off white bubbly head. Aroma of coffee, dark fruits, caramel and a bit of toffee, lactose and nuts. Flavors of the same but more on the sweet side.
