The stoutest stout you will ever drink. Awesomely dark, intensely flavorful. All around fantastic.

This is a great Imperial Stout - very smooth yet still strong and flavorful. Full body, creamy, average carbonation, long finish,

Tan thick head. Very subtle roast aroma. Medium heavy body. Not too viscous. Extremely dark beer. Can't see any light through it. A little too much carb. Roasty chocolatey flavor.

MartzMimic (52) - Oklahoma, USA - FEB 23, 2014
Pours a deep blackish brown with a creamy head. Loads of lacing in the glass. Big aroma of coffee and chocolate. The taste is spot-on the same, with some dark fruit joining in. Nice bit of bitterness on the finish. Nice thick, oily mouth. This is everything a stout should be, and one of my favorites.

Dark black with creamy foam head. Smells of coffee and chocolate. Very rich and nutty. Espresso and caramel. A little vanilla. Heavy.

Its a dark, complex masterpiece. Drink it up! Really I’m sure you’ve had a hard day recently. Go to a decent liquor store, take this off the shelf, and reward yourself. And then go to bed sobbing as you realize that drinking that beer was the best part of your week.

culchiem (2301) - Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 15, 2014
Bottle from SED. Jet black with aedium tan head. Aroma is light toast malt. Flavor is much more intense than the flavour suggests. Smoky burnt malt, vanilla, smooth texture. Long lingering intense ash dry finish.

ScottWallace82 (44) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - FEB 13, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2014 Bottle into a tulip. Pours a rich dark brown with a thick tan head. Smells of chocolate and toffee. Thick, heavy mouthfeel. Chocolaty and alcoholic, with a caramel and a bitter roasty coffee finish. Almost too bitter on the back end.

Creedence (282) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Nitro keg at Deep Ellum. Pours a deep black, with a hint of ruby, and an enormous tab head that eventually fades and sales at about a quarter inch. Aroma is surprisingly present for a nitro pour, with a good deal of coffee, a hint of dark chocolate and roast. Taste is where it’s all happening though. Huge chocolatey sweetness at the front, followed by some roasted bakery bitterness, coffee coming through, a hint of nuts and then a big coffee aftertaste. A good deal of boozy goodness present too. Finish is smooth and creamy, reasonably thick but not overly so for a nitro, and that coffee aftertaste just lasts and lasts and lasts. A truly gorgeous beer. Even on nitro! Must try the bottled version, I can only begin to imagine how good it is.

Pours black. Smells like roasted malt and alcohol. Strong taste of roasted malt, coffee, and dark bitter coffee. Great, complex flavor.
