Roasty aims of chocolate and coffee. Black pour with tan foamy head. Fair lacing. Creamy mouth feel, satisfying full body. Rich classic stout flavor (roasty malts and chocolate) with a nice slightly bitter finish. Another fine beer from NC

12oz. bottle. Opaque black colour with a thin tan head. Roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, liquorice and plums in the aroma. Soft carbonation and full to medium body. Taste is complex but at the same time balanced. Coffee, roasted and smoky notes. Overall, a very good beer but I was expecting more.

Poured from a bottle. Inky with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malts and sweet plums. Coffee taste comes through with an underlying sweetness. Alcohol is not readily apparent. Surprisingly easy drinking. Maybe my favorite stout.

Poured into a nonic glass a dark black with a mocha head. A big but easy to drink beer with the aroma of deeply roasted malts, dark chocolate, plums, and wonderful dirt floor basement. Taste is deeply roasted malts that gain a molasses sweet that late in the finish turn to a burnt taste in the back of the mouth and alcohol warmth. A beer for the cabin fireplace on a cold winter night for sure.

Coloração escura com colarinho bege espesso e persistente. Aroma de torrefação com toque de café. Corpo cheio, discretamente aveludado e boa carbonatação. Gosto levemente adocicado no início, seguido de torrefação intensa com toque de café e álcool bem inserido no final. Retrogosto persistente de torrefação. Excelente cerveja.

Aus der Flasche. Fast schwarzes Bier mit dunkelbeigen Schaum. Kaffe, Schokolade und Rum Aromen. Wuchtiger Geschmack, fast leicht verbrannt. Man schmeckt den Alkohol. Langer cremiger dickflüssiger Abgang.

Really good imperial stout - nearly a great one. Let’s start with the basics - very dark of course, with a fading coffee coloured head. Full body. Great complexity - we have roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate, blackcurrants and other dark fruits, touch of smoke, some leathery tannin. Finish is just a bit too wincingly bitter for me.
