Blacker than night, stouter than stout is our Imperial Stout. Brewed with a lot of malt & a touch of honey, Imperial Stout is rich & robust with deep, deep notes of dark chocolate & espresso.

Aged this one about a year and thought it was DAMN GOOD. Pours black with tan head and nearly no carbonation or lacing. It’s thick without being too sweet or syrupy, lots of chocolate cocoa, roasty, hazlenut, and maybe a little anise. Coffee is present throughout, especially in the finish. Very good.

22oz bottle pours out black topped with a small tan head. Nose is roast malts dark chocolate coffee and some ashtray notes. Taste is more of the coffee smokey notes and the chocolate. I noticed a little spice even and plenty bitterness.

wish i could get more of the honey out of this, but over a solid albeit a little thin, stout.

Bottle courtesy of Mike, shared with Paul and Dallas. Porus a deep blackish brown body with thin tan lacing. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of rich woody, earthy roast, bitter dark chocolate, dirt, oak and sweet honey. A bit reminiscient of Bell’s Expedition.

Black pour with a thin espresso head that fades quick. Aroma is pretty light with hints of honey. Medium mouth. Taste is full of chocolate and a little honey comb. Roast is prevalent. Bitter finish. Some toffee notes creep in as it warms.

Bottle. Vintage, been in the cellar for a while. Pouts a dark inky brown with very minimal head. Low carbonation. Molasses and dark roast in the nose. Heavy mouthfeel, a bit oily. Sweet molasses upfront that then transitions to dark chocolate, roast, and a touch of leather. A bit sweet but pretty tasty.

It pours black with a deep brown head. It has roasted smells with chocolate and coffee aromas. It has a very rich feel and flavor with sweet flavors of chocolate and roasted flavors. There is a bit touch of honey to it. It ends off with a sweet bitter finish.

Prufrockstar (1642) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 24, 2014
Bottle (2013), thanks to jtclockwork. From notes, sampled side-by-side with Event Horizon. Pours like viscous motor oil. Aroma: tons of roast, stale hops. Honey hard to pick out. Taste: alcohol, spice/roast, big lasting coffee roast finish. Quite sweet, but then offset with huge bitter coffee finish. Full body, viscous and oily. Avg carbonation. I very much prefer the event horizon, but this be good too.

BMMillsy (1787) - Florida, USA - OCT 29, 2014
Gold wax bottle from Joe. Thanks bud. Pours pitch black with a toe finger brown head, looking super creamy, and with wicked retention. Sweet aroma of honey and roast, molasses and dark fruits, chocolate and smoke. Very dessert-like in the nose. Flavor is massive roast with serious bitterness, char, lots of sweet chocolate and dark fruit and molasses to balance. Big rich body with low to medium carbonation. I bet this would stand up nicely to bourbon barrels. Very nice, somewhat under the radar stout.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 20, 2014
Serving: 750 ml. bottle from Bottle Revolution. It pours black with a dense, dark tan head. Smells like root beer. Roasty flavors with a bit of nuts, grain, ash, and dark chocolate. Full bodied with a medium finish. Pretty good.
