BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 14, 2010
Growler thanks to someone at the Lost Abbey barrel tasting. Pours with a black body and a small tan head. Aroma of caramel, light woody notes, coconut, and a bit of a vinous hint. The taste is roasty, a slight sour tinge (odd?) also slightly vinous, with big notes of caramel. Maybe the roast is adding acidity, I am not sure. Dry finish.

Ernest (7322) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 3, 2004
Draught. Body is black. Aroma is heavily malty (chocolate, caramel, roasted grain, coffee), lightly hoppy (flowers), with a note of vanilla, hint of alcohol. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Delicious straightforward Imperial with an enormous malt nose and excellent balance.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 11, 2004
GABF 2004: Full darkness lack of color, and almost opaque with a thin tan head. Aroma is malty sweet and roasty with some noticeable acidity. Nice malty and dark fruity complex body could use a touch more thickness. Finishes bittersweet and hides its alcohol very well. A nicely balanced beer that could use a little bulking up.
