Very good impy stout with lots of roast and the sweetness of the honey balances the flavor nicely. Second best beer OH makes behind Event Horizon.

A great imperial stout by an established local brewery! Pours black with a subtle head and gives off chocolate along with a hint of smokiness! An excellent brew! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Advocate_Ames (432) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2014
Pours jet black with a dissipating dark mocha head that ends up hugging my glass. The aroma is of rich sweet roasted and smokey malts. There is also bitter cocoa aromas with a soft yeast and booze like scents. While tasting I noticed a defined sugary malt sweetness, a very noticeable honey flavor, bitter chocolate, and a weak but pleasant booze taste. The finish is of bitter cocoa, mild booze, and a nice carmel malty tone. The finish did not linger but it did not rapidly fade. Overall this is an interesting but complex beverage. It reminds me of a weak braggot, a mild smoked stout, a chocolatey stout, and a sweet barleywine all rolled in one. I am impressed, this beverage is worth a try.

2014 RBWG. Bottle shared at the Friday Night Downtown Inn Bottle Share. Black, tan head.Mild aroma. Some chocolate, coffee. The flavor runs sweet with chocolate and coffee gain. Hides it’s alcohol well, but could use more complexity.
