I received this bottle courtesy of Skyview. This was a great beer. Pours very dark with a small tan head. Aroma of dark fruit and sugar/sweetness with chocolate. Taste similar to aroma with a bit of molasses in there as well. For 9.5% you really cannot taste the alcohol. Very nice beer.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Stub & Herbís. Served in a tulip glass. Dark brown (almost black), mostly opaque body with brown head. Aroma of roasted coffee bean, sweet malts, chocolate, and molasses. Smooth, medium to heavy body with flavors of cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, and a hint of bourbon. Decent complexity, with more bourbon-like flavors coming out as the beer warms, along with some dark fruit and vanilla. Finish and aftertaste are predominantly bakerís/dark chocolate along with some coffee tones.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Enjoyed post Thanksgiving. Crafted much more in the vein of an Imperial Porter than an Imperial Stout. The hops are rather muted until the finish, with semi-sweet chocolate and cane sugar syrup pronounced. The pour is a thing of beauty, with a luscious brown head and a dark chocolate appearance. Undertones of prune juice and toffee on the palate, with subtle notes of star anise and nutmeg. Rather sweet, but certainly enjoyable. The 9.5 ABV is hardly noticeable. A solid structure and decent complexity to this Imperial Porter. I am missing the hops and the viscosity/mouthfeel of an exceptional Imperial Stout. Thanks to Nathan for transporting this south.

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours pure black with probably the darkest colored head Iíve seen, brownish red almost. Head retention is amazing and has incredible lacing. Aroma has molasses, licorice, cherries, chocolate, and a little roastiness. Sweet malt and molasses greet my tongue first, yielding a cornucopia of sweet delicious flavors. Many of the things noted in the nose are also present in the taste, but just even more condensed and with some roastiness in the finish; itís so good! Mouthfeel is super thick, very full bodied with low carbonation; perfect for an imperial stout. Incredible beer, I really hope they continue to make this. Dark Lord, watch out!

3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Full body, strong flavors but rather unidimentional, smooth mouthfeel, long in palate
Roast bitterness, malty and sweet but just enough,
Coffee throughout to finish.

Bottle courtesy from Styles, Nice smell of molasses. Taste was sweet with hints of dried fruit. Not over powering but noticible. Alcohol was well hidden. lacing was nice also. Good beer
