Wade into darker waters with Lazy Magnolia’s Black Creek Imperial Stout. Black as the bayou on a moonless winter night, this 8.5% Southern-Style Imperial Stout begins with aromas of dark chocolate and coffee, followed by a savory blend of roasted barley and caramel flavors, with a velvety-sweet finish. Our full-bodies Mississippi dark ale is the perfect winter companion to warm and relax your taste buds with every slow and delicious sip. Drink Lazy.

Pours black with a small tan head that lasts throughout. Aroma purely consists of roasted malt; coffee, dark chocolate and nuts. Tastes are more of the same. Silky body with a bitter chocolaty finish. A very nice, elegant beer. I’ve come to learn that dark beers are Lazy Magnolia’s specialty.

Leighton (15259) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2015
Bottle shared at chriso’s Easter 2015 tasting - London. Thanks to Col for this one. Pours oily black-brown with a creamy, tan head. The nose holds dark fruits, ash and cocoa. Light to medium sweet flavor with touches of metal, bitter cocoa, ash, leathery dark fruits. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish with more chocolate and leather. OK.

nimbleprop (6317) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 18, 2015
12oz bottle with 11/11/14 on it. Pours a viscous black with tons of voluminous, frothy, brown head. Nose has licorice, molasses, tree bark, something a bit funny like some dusty couch, stale grains, some plum. Flavor is sweet, lightly nutty, cola, molasses, some burnt bread, burnt caramel, something a bit artificial like grape soda. Full, sweet, spritzy finish. A bit messy and doubtful it will improve with age.

yngwie (15759) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 26, 2015
Bottle. Very dark brown, clear-looking beer topped by a dense, light tan head. The aroma has some molasses and licorice, roasted malts and a lightly sour touch. Some hints of dark chocolate and prunes too. It’s full-bodied and smooth, semi-sweet, with licorice, coffee and molasses dominating the flavor. As in the aroma, there’s also some chocolate and dried fruits. Lasting finish. Nothing impressive going on here, but it’s a tasteful beer, even though it’s not a beer I’d repeat. 150626

Homer321 (2974) - Melboring, Florida, USA - JUN 26, 2015
Bottle to snifter. Black in color, large light brown head. Nose is licorice and molasses with a burnt sugar character. Light tar and tobacco. Taste is initially bitter dark cocoa with a noticeable coffee sharpness. More focused on coffee sharpness and bitterness than smooth rounded cocoa. Decent. Seems a tad thin tho. Probably the best impy stout from Mississippi.

ICEatALAMO (1172) - Troy, Michigan, USA - JUN 3, 2015
Bottle. The pour is black. The aroma is mostly mild malts. The taste seems a little thin for an imperial. Slightly over carbonated. Decent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

adasko (1199) - Poznan, POLAND - MAY 20, 2015
Piwo jest dobre, ale nieco zawodzi. Zdecydowanie brak mu aromatów i smaków typowych dla imperialnego stouta. Jest dość lekkie i sesyjne jak na ten styl.

ChrisOs Easter Tasting. Opaque dark brown beer, tidy pale tan head. Palate is airy and semi dry. Mildly roasty dark malts, toiuches of dark chocolate and coffee. Tangy dark fruits. Airy dry finish brings a little spice. Okay.
