On tap at The Map Room. Pours with a thick creamy head. Did not get much aroma off it, some mild charcoal and chocolate. Very rich and creamy. There is a little alcohol in the taste but I did not find it as objectionable as others have. A very enjoyable imperial.

Great looking stout. Smells strong of choc. and coffee. Were orginal imp. stouts this high in coffee tones? Anyway, very good with a slaty toffee taste. The hops heavy in the palate, prob. worth storing. A very enjoyable beer.

12oz Bottle: 100th Percentile? Really? I was disappointed by this brew. Thought it would be more like a stout and less like an IPA. Tasted like someone tried to make a Black and Tan with Guinness and Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. Too sweet and stick for my tastes. Overly alcoholic taste as well, sort of like someone laced it with Stolichnaya. Burns on the way down, like vodka. Left a very strong alcoholic taste in my mouth. Probably wonít ever have it again. Canít say Iím impressed.

Finally picked up a bottle of this after passing it up many times. Vinous, deep, dark cherries and figs with a little roastiness and some caramel and a hint of oakiness, even though this isnít barrel aged. Blackest black with a huge light brown head and great lacing. Flavor of roasted oats, coffee, chocolate, slight mineral twist in the finish. Full, thick and creamy. Very tasty.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2005 Wow. Dark chocolate nose. Big time. Dark chocolate taste. Big time. Some traces of smoke and and a solid dose of vodka. Bitter on the end. Very bitter. Too bitter? Maybe. Very lightly carbonated. Palate is real smooth, almost the feel of a raw egg. This is very well done example of a style Iím not completely sold on. My brother, however, would love this. Pertinent information, I know.

PeterLikesBeer (104) - Berwyn Heights, Maryland, USA - OCT 18, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2005 Pours jet black with a decent size tan head and a lot of nice lacing. Aroma contains chocolate and coffee. Flavor is of dark fruits at first then goes to bitter chocolate to coffee and finishes creamy and sweet. There is an alcohol taste that takes away from the beer a little bit. Nevertheless this is a very well done beer.

(Bottle) THE best Imperial Stout, Iíve ever tasted. Extremely complex yet enjoyable and drinkable. Massive bitterness and notes of dark roasted coffee and smoke dominates this beer. Itís dark a the night, and it feels creamy and rich when drinking it. Extremely good!!!

Bottle. Pours oily dark black with a very thin light brown head. Aromas are smoky, espresso mostly and bitter chocolate. Tastes of coffee, chocolate and molasses. Mostly of bitter coffee. Fairly smooth on the palate. Smoky finish.
