COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fourth in our series this is Dan’s "Unplugged Imperial Stout". This beer is handcrafted for you with the same care that English brewers used when the brewed Imperial Stouts for the Russian Royal Family. This is a strong beer brewed with lots of black barley. Back home that makes this beer an excellent candidate for laying down in your beer cellars.

Tmoney99 (11075) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 17, 2010
Bottle shared by shigadeyo. Poured dark brown color with an average brown frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium to heavy toasted chocolate malt and coffee aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium toasted chocolate sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable brew that may be past it’s prime.

Bottle aged well and poured a dark black with light brown edges with hints of roasted chocolate and a light coffee finish but for a IPS it was kinda thin on the bottle.CHEERS!

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - SEP 25, 2008
12oz bottle shared by badbeer. Thanks. Poured a nearly opaque black color with thin ruby highlights. The head was brown with decent retention. The aroma was of milk chocolate, light roasty malt, saltine crackers, and caramel. Medium bodied with a creamy mouth feel. Carbonation was on the low end of the spectrum. I tasted chocolate, molasses, and a bit of roast. This held up relatively well.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 7, 2008
Pours dark brown with a thin tan head. Smells of caramel, chocolate, spicey, some touches of lactic acid. Tastes sweet with a semi spicy finish. Decent.

badbeer (434) - Iowa, USA - JUL 6, 2008
Poured out black, but brown around the edges. Head was a very light tan color, that had good retention and left decent lacing. Smell was malty, mostly sweet with very little roastiness. When agitated I get cocoa and a hint of dark fruit. Taste is sweet and almost creamlike, light cocoa that blends quite well, maybe even some molasses, and some roastiness, but not until the finish. Low carbonation with medium body and a somewhat dry, finish. Very drinkable for a high gravity stout, definitely one of the better ones I’ve had recently.

BlackDonald (1126) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 21, 2008
This has a very thin, motor oil pour with a small ring of brown foam. Sweet on the palate, with some chocolate icing, some licorice and molasses in the background, with the forefront beign more of a minerality and fruit quality. Decent.

black, fine tan head, streaks of lace, rich fruity aroma with chocolate and roasted malts and black licorice sweetness, creamy body, rich milk chocolate flavor with tons of dark fruit character, roasted malts add complexity but stays in the background, just a bit of sweetness along with the chocolate, the dark ripe fruit is the star of the show

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - APR 15, 2007
Clean and delicate nose with soft notes of anise, fig, raisin, plum and bakers chocolate. Rich and complex palate with a very clean finish.

redlem (1306) - Ohio, USA - APR 5, 2007
Notes from 2004. Pours an opaque black with a small tan head. Aroma of dark fruits. Taste of a dry straw in fall with hints of mowed grass over an fruit orchard. At this point I have become very tired of this style.

Odeed (1787) - Bakersfield, California, USA - FEB 15, 2007
(MANY THANKS TO BBB63 FOR THIS RETIRED GEM)pours a dark brown body with no head.aroma is a light but complex mix of rasins,figs,chocolate,coffee,and roasted malts.flavor is light but complex as well.smoke,figs,rasins,oxidation,barley,coffee,and raosted malts.even though the mouthfeel is thin.the palte is very complex and lasts for many seconds after a sip.seeing as this is retired i know its at least a year old.although i never had a fresh one so i dont know if aged thinned out the body,or if it was that way to begin with.either way its pretty damn good and i thank mike for hooking it up.
