Bottle. Brownish black with a thick tan head and great lacing. Aroma is mainly roasted malts, a little bit of chocolate and booze as well. Flavor is burnt roasted malts, molasses, bitter coffee, light cocoa. Finish is much more bitter than I like with a lot of black strap molasses. Wow, this is bitter. Honey is nowhere to be found.

msante79 (2210) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - APR 17, 2011
On tap at Duckworths. Pours near black with tan head. Aromas of roasted malts, chocolate, some coffee and caramel mixed in as well. Flavors of burnt malts, sweet chocolate, espresso, soy sauce, and a bit of booze. Nice mouthfeel. Liked this a bit more than Sexual Chocolate as it had a bit more complexity. Nice stout.

Poured after running through a ton of CCB beers...so it may have suffered somewhat being after a fun of good beers. Poured nearly black. Nose is coffee and some burnt sugars. I could not sense any honey despite its billing on the label.

Light notes of honey and cinnamon over a nice dark chocolate and coffee aroma. Flavor is lightly sweet with a nice, lightly bitter roast-y finish that stops just short of charred, balancing the sweetness quite well.

Bomber thanks to largadeer. Darkest brown in color with a lasting one-finger light tan head. The aroma is rather hoppy, spicy and earthy, with just a small amount of roastiness and coffee. The flavor is nice, not typical for the style but good, with a roasty coffee base, spicy hops and cinnamon. Rather rich on the finish. Medium-bodied and fairly crisp actually, which is crazy for this style but oh well I like it, with average carbonation. A really good and different imperial stout. I approve.

These guys make really good beer! This poured black with a nice tan head that stayed around for the finish! The aroma was sweet and malty. The sweet taste allowed the chocolates to peek through, with a hint of the espresso. The mouthfeel wsa velvety and nice. very easy to drink. A great beer!
