ReggieDunlap (3031) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 23, 2013
Pours dark brown with a medium creamy tan head. Aroma has roastiness and light coffee...a bit boring and one dimensional. Flavor has a cheap caramely note, some coffee, and mild burnt bitterness. Mouthfeel is thin and watery with a burnt/bitter dry finish.

22oz bomber shared with Ed5388. Poured a solid black medium density body under a foamy beige head. Aroma of cola, sweet dark chocolate, earth, slight alcohol and burnt vanilla extract, wet raisin and dates, burnt marshmallows. Creamy body with average carbonation. Flavor of chocolate, dark toast, marshmallow and some freeze dried coffee. Okay.

Ed5388 (1980) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 29, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2013 22oz bomber. Shared thanks to dmac. Pours a thin black color with a small tan head. Aroma of sweet chocolate, perfumy/floral notes, and hints of roasted coffee. Taste of chocolate, bitter roasted coffee, and a fake sugary aftertaste (Splenda?).

r464 (1890) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Deep and dark with a thinnish tan head. Coffee, roasted malt, cocoa, raisins, cherry. Full and smooth. A very nice stout with a bit of tartness.

swanmann (590) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 6, 2013
It pours coffee brown with just a bit of red tone. The light beige head vanished quickly. Aromas of coffee, booze, caramel. Flavor is the same, but a bit muted at this point. Some roasty bitterness fades into a bit of milk chocolate sweetness. It’s creamy but thins quickly. I wish I had found this 7 months ago :(

Jesterdeal (1814) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - AUG 5, 2013
Bottle shared with my brother round the campfire. Aroma was chewy molasses, dark chocolate, and slight fake coffee. Pours thick and black with very little carbonation or lacing. Taste is tobacco, molasses, bitter dark chocolate and subtle coffee grind. Ultimately, thick and not too much of anything.

mcclainc50 (164) - New York, USA - JUL 25, 2013
Pours very dark with a thin tan head. Barely any aroma. Flavor is of burnt something, hard to identify, afterflavor of bad burnt coffee. Not anything impressive.

mtdewa1 (275) - rome, New York, USA - JUL 25, 2013
Motor oil dark, tan head. Dark chocolate aroma and taste. Maybe caramel and coffee. A bit bitter, not real smooth. Ok at best

Draft. Blackish beer with a dark cream head. Malt and light roasty aroma with light coffee. Chocolate and coffee flavor wit caramel. Medium bodied. Coffee and caramel lingers with light chocolate.

July 1, 2013. Bomber. Surprise find in the local grocery. Pretty much everything you’d expect to find in a quality Imperial Stout. Outstanding roasty, dark chocolate/coffee aroma/taste. Not terribly heavy. Well balanced & smooth. A pleasantly-bitter, if somewhat subdued, finish. Not over the top in any respect. Nice recipe - would definitely have this again.
