kappldav123 (4596) - Nordhausen, GERMANY - MAR 3, 2014
Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass deep black, nice small head. Heavy malty aroma. Starts intense malty, oily, earthy notes, hints of liquorice. Not too dry. Also hints of bitter chocolate. Finish well balanced, not alcoholic, warming-malty. A great beer!

beaz1591 (237) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAR 1, 2014
Tulip glass. Mild odor of chocolate and malts. Beautiful beer, black as night with thick cottony head. Great creamy, hearty mouth feel. Excellent tasting, the coffee and chocolate balance this or nicely.

Lagerboy (1073) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 1, 2014
12 FL. OZ. bottle. Deep dark hueless brown, big foamy mocha head settles and rings. Pungent aroma of dark chocolate and burnt dark malt, a whiff of dark fruit. Sweet bitter smooth chocolate, robust dark roast, bitter coffee bean. Average carbonation, full bodied, moderately hopped. Intense and powerful yet ABV mostly hidden. Definitely a meal, and: DNFL (Definitely Not For Lagerboys)

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

jasonclick (10) - Green Cove Springs, Florida, USA - FEB 26, 2014
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 (53) - 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.

thehoff (585) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - FEB 22, 2014
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.
