I absolutely loved this. Looks great, has a thick black color with dark tan head. The flavor is chewy and thick, yet it doesnít make you feel fat. I could drink this all the time. A home run.

Chocolate aroma with a very nice port taste. Label is very true to actual taste. Does not pour much of a head at all. Dry finish. Fantastic brew!

This is the only imperial stout that can come close to competing with the Speedway Stout from Alesmith. Deep rich color with a toasted, nutty, malty finish.

Room temp, 20degrees, Caramel , alcohol, dark choc and coffee aromas, rich black in glass with a brown minimal head. Bitter on tongue first, smooth taste, minimal carbonation, lovely dry after taste leaving my mouth watering. I've brought four of these they are such a long drink, do not drink at fridge cold.

Wow, Iíve 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.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours thick oily black with a dense filthy multi shaded head. The nose is big black licorice and chocolate, cherries, nuts and coffee mix in with traces of tanned level and booze. The taste is high sweet and low bitter. Great balance. The mouthfeel is like drinking chocolate cream, so smooth. The body is heavy a d the finish is long. Damn it's good.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Deepest dark brown, almost black. A mocha head which dissipates quickly to leave a brown ring of lace.
Probably served too cold, but strong aromas of plum, aniseed and coffee bean.
Thick and milky, strong strong dark chocolate and coffee bean bitterness. Christmas cake fruits, plum, raisin and brown sugar, this is a real treat of a stout. The alcohol is warming, but not unpleasant, it lets you know it's there.
The finish is warm and bitter, the thick milky body coats the mouth and leaves you wanting more
