Thick deep black pour with a brown foamy head (in sampler glass). Aroma of chocolate and coffee with flavor much of the same ... chocolate mocha milk shake like. Slight sweet finish. Very nice.

Bottle. Poured a black color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted and produced good lacing. Moderate roasted chocolate, dark honey sweet and cooffee aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Good complex roasted dark chocolate flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Good complex brew.

Bottle: Very dark brown pour with a brown head. Heavy roast and chocolate nose. More roasty notes in the taste with espresso and floral hops. Sort of an earthy presence. The sweetness of the honey never really shined through in my eyes, but it remained balanced with the roasty, floral, and earthy bits. Nicely done.

LtDan (1784) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - SEP 4, 2011
Appearance Pours dark brown with tight tan bubbles.

Aroma: Dusty cocoa like malt and wet dog like roasted malts..

Taste. Burnt roast cocoa vanilla. Ashes and coffee. Finishes roasty..

Mouth. Full bodied decently carbonated..

Overall: The word honey triggers a special sensation in my brain, and I immediately think of itís sweet, goey goodness. I was looking for just a touch and unfortunately didnít find it .

22 oz. bottle from Bestway in Greensboro (2011 bottle). Pours dark brown with a creamy khaki head. Aroma of dark chocolate, espresso, and some sweetness that I suppose smells like honey (although Iím not sure that I specifically would have picked honey had it not been on the label). Really good roasted coffee flavor, smoky malts, and this time Iím certain there is honey. The description says there is only a "touch" of honey but it really comes through. While it does make for a unique imperial stout the honey is a bit too strong for my liking. Still good, but I would have liked it better with no honey.

Iím not a hugh fan of Stoudts, except Guinness of course, but this one was pretty good. Deep dark chocolate brown in color. Malty aroma, . Creamy head that dissipates quickly. Heavy body. Feels creamy on tounge. Tastes of caramel frapachino with a small hop tingle. Hop taste increases as it warms up.

tia (915) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - JUL 28, 2011
Dark brown with a cafe au lait colored foamy head that lasted. Coffee, spice, caramel, and something fresh? like clover? Very roasty tasting which hangs on for a while then shifts into a (not ovberbearing) dry bitter hop then coffee. As it warmed, I got a hint of NyQuil but that is not a bad thing to me. Not as heavy in mouth as I expected. Tip of tongue tingle.

Beerman6686 (4324) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 27, 2011
This poured a black color with a lighter tan head. Aroma was herbal hops, spicey anise/licorice and some roasted malts. Flavor was also lots of licorice and mint, some roasted and mint chocolate. OK.

6/4/11. Bomber courtesy Patrick. Opaque black pour with a brown head that fades to a ring but sticks. Slightly herbal and minty aroma with a hint of chocolate and coffee. Slightly sweet chocolate flavor with a lingering bitter roasted malt presence as well. Not bad.
