Solid body, heavy roast and dark fruits, some licorice with a massive bitterness from both malts and hops. Fairly straight hard roast Impy - a little rough perhaps. 180311

Big thanks to kenneyho for this. Poured into a snifter. 3.5 A: Pours a seemingly viscous black. Two fingers of creamy/frothy light brown head with average retention and a reasonably sized ring of lacing. 4.5 S: This is the type of imperial stout nose that I live for. Harmonious mixture of sweet and roasty with each component working together with the whole. Milk chocolate with an almost lactose-like vibe. The chocolate flavors mend well with coffee flavors forming something like a cold cafe mocha. I canít really pick the honey out by itself, but I think itís meshing with the others flavors. A big roastiness ties all the flavors together. Robust and elegant this is. 3.5: T: I see where the honey is now. Itís all in the taste! Anyway, unlike what the nose suggests, the taste is a bit sweeter than Iíd prefer or perhaps just not roasty enough. Lots of caramel malt in this gives a caramel and toffee flavor that stands tall. Raisin, figs, some anise, chocolate milkshake, roasted coffee, and some roasted barley. Werid mixture of roasty and cloying on finish. 4.0 M: Heavier medium body. The honey definitely influenced the body, I believe. Anyway, reasonably creamy with good carbonation. 3.5 D: Definitely not a bad brew, but thereís something about this that I donít care for. That said, Iím sure that most people would thoroughly enjoy this. Good overall and worth a try. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 03-02-2011 02:37:04

22 oz bottle. Dark brown with a creamy tan head. Nose is dark chocolate, sweet smoke, molasses and hay. Silky and coating full body with a buzz. Taste is chocolate, plum and honey with a shot of espresso. Sweet, roasty and delicious. A good example of the emerging American Imperial Stout style.

22oz bomber from Trevor. Pours dark, dark brown, definitely not oil slick black like the Event Horizon with a lighter tan head than the EH which recedes slowly to a thin cap and leaves little lacing. Aroma is heavily roasted, massive black malts with some hops as well. Cocoa powder and sweet honey as well. Thie taste is just as good and might be better than Event Horizon. Itís a perfect balance of heavily roasted chocolate malts, light earthy hops, bakers chocolate and honey. The finish is a really pleasant bittersweet mix of vanilla, malts and honey. The mouthfeel is super smooth and well carbonated. The most impressive thing for me was the completely hidden ABV. Just doesnít taste like 10%+. Very complex, tasty, smooth, well done. Right up there with Event Horizon for me.

A: The beer pours a very dark brown color, almost black, with a finger of tan head that dissipates somewhat quickly. S: A little bit too boozy on the nose, but otherwise, good. I get lots of bitter dark chocolate and roast with a pleasing vanilla note. Thereís a mild coffee aroma and some floral notes that might be from the honey or from the hops (which there seem to be a fair amount of). T: Decently roasty to begin with, but there is quite a strong level of bitterness. The bitterness seems to come from the hops, roast, and some dark chocolate flavor. A mild coffee flavor to go with licorice and dark fruits which add a nice complexity. M: The body is maybe a little bit thin for an imperial stout, but still in the medium range. The carbonation is also medium. D: A little bit of booze, but pretty good overall. I like the level of bitterness which prevents the beer from being too sweet without being overbearing.

Bomber. Poured clear, deep brown with garnet highlights and a well-retained dark tan head.. looked good. The aroma picked up molasses, burnt toast, brown sugar, and espresso.. sweeter vanilla and honey backing.. some raw alcohol when you stick your nose in the glass. The flavor found more of the honey with espresso and molasses at the core.. raw alcohol emanated outward, along with light coffee bitterness.. another hit of vanilla sweetened up the otherwise hot finish.. somewhat cloying as it warmed up. Medium-plus bodied and well-roasted (at times burnt) on the palate.. a little smoky too.. just a bit sharp at times, but otherwise aiight.
