Happy international stout day! Nice black beer with 1/2 finger drak tan head. Aroma of sweet chocolate, coffee and roasted malts. Taste is sweet like a milk stout. Can not taste the high alcohol. Medium mouthfeel with good carbonation.

Bottle. Poured a black color with an average frothy brown head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted dark chocolate aroma. Medium to heavy toasted dark malty flavor with a medium to heavy dark sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a solid beer.

Yes, big bad impy stout that is on style all the way. Had on tap at the bocktown monaca. Oily looking brew, reminds me of old worn out oil from my 73 plymouth duster 318. Big over the top stout impact. Difficult rototilling thing messing up mu buds. Alky is not well hidden, wew. Big long bitter sensations on the back of my throat will not gop away. Way too stong for any girly budded lager laver.

Sample from a 12oz bottle, thanks to alexsdad06. Pours black as night with a good brown head. Some loose lace. Big dark fruity and molasses nose. Bigger, chewy body. Lighter carbonation. More dry, no lingering sticky syrupiness. Nice dark chocolate roastiness. Little coffee. Good bitter taste, long roasty coffee chocolate aftertaste. Nice russian imperial stout.

Wow, I’ve found another favorite. This is a solid stout with bold and balanced flavors. Intense in an excellent way. Up there with my favorites Alesmith Speedway, Port Old Viscosity, Oskar Blues Ten Fiddy, Firehouse One Tun and Green Flash Double Stout.
