stouts are not tops on my list but this one could change my mind. coffee and raison aroma. It taste like the same coffee and dark chocolate. What makes this special to me is the bitter finish with no trace of alcohol. Iíll have to pick this up again

Equal parts coffee, chocolate, and alcohol. The sweet chocolate and bitter coffee compliment each other particularly well.

Capa (2620) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JAN 18, 2006
Poured black with a small tan head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate. Tasted of coffee and chocolate with some alcoholic warming also. A great stout that Iím sure I will be enjoying over and over again.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2006 Pours black with a beige head. Very rich, slightly rumlike. Aromas of caramel, coffee, chocolate and alcohol. Creamy and very full bodied. A bit of sourness in the finish. Very nice. Re(blind)rated at sk8vikingís: 7-3-7-3-15

I was actually not very impressed by this beer. Body is a beautiful black with an extremely small head. Aroma is of coffee. Taste is of coffee with a VERY bitter finish. Not my style, too bitter for my liking.

One of the best stouts Iíve ever tasted. Dark and smooth with a slight bitter finish.

kramer (5800) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 6, 2006
12 oz bottle, via FlacoAlto. Very dark brown, almost black pour with a small off-white head that faded to a thin film quickly. Deep roasted malt aroma, notes of bitter chocolate, licorice, and alcohol. Roasted and burnt malt flavor balanced nicely with significant hop bitterness. Finish is espresso with a slight alcoholic warmth. Oily texture with moderate carbonation yields a mouthcoating beer. Great roasty Imperial, not the biggest or badest, but a solid example of the style.

outerupt (133) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 6, 2006
12oz bottle to pint glass. Pours a thin and dark head releasing a distinct aroma of burnt oak, caramelized sugar, and brandied prunes. The colour is, as is often noted, nearly black. I donít think this beer hides its alcohol as well as other beers in this style nor do I think it employs a depth of malt character. It is by no means a bad imperial stout but its flavor and palate seem to lack intriguing undertones and length. 2 dimensional at best.

imzugzug (103) - Bechtelsville, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 3, 2006
Loved this! So pretty in the glass, nearly black with a bit of a reddish tint. Nice lacing on the glass with nearly no head at all. Smell was sweet, with hints of chocolate and fruit. Possibly plum? Taste was exceptional. Thick on the tongue and smooth as velvet. Alcohol was warming and just plain yummy. Only had the one bottle, but definitely plan on picking more up.
