At first I thought this was going to be a great beer from initial taste. But as I kept drinking, I kept thinking how more and more it tasted like dirt. Something I would not jump at trying again. Had this beer at the Coralville Brrfest.

A black body offers pinstripe mahogany highlights beneath a fading, tight khaki head creating a couple small dots of lace and a thick ring
Aromas and flavors of mild, yet lively dark chocolate, banana-like esters, juicy plumb, and black licorice with accents of caramel and undertones of smoked meat on an oily, well carbonated medium body creating a somewhat vague, clearing residual with roasted notes holding on, mildly sticky gloss
22oz bottle served at 50º into 13.5oz Lara brandy snifter

Weak flavor. Kind of like a watered down version of an impy stout. Not as offensive as some have stated. Boring and uninteresting however.

Tap at Peace Tree brewery. Black with a brown head. Smell is somewhat like sour milk, pepper and anise. Cinnamon. Mouthfeel is medium and oily. Okay.

On tap at Crescent Moon Alehouse ($5/pint). Black appearance with minimal light brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, light chocolate, bitter hops and coffee. Similar flavor, pretty simple and straight forward. Finally rated a beer from my home state.

imperial stout (brewer’s special release series) +1 iowa cred. please let pepsican live. he sent me this high boost brew. aroma is from box, tootsie roll, tar, ash. sweet butterscotch. old plummy dough. taste provides a somewhat overwealming wollup of twangy tootsie roll grape drank twang. weird. a bit of rotten old biting twangy dark fruits. not very drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black with a filmy brown head. Aroma of chocolate nibs, cocoa, licorice and mild smokiness. Taste consists of roasted barley, chocolate, smoke and cherries. Body is heavy and moderately carbonated. Decent but not my first choice for an Imperial Stout.

Bottle. Super dark thick looking pour. Roasted malt nose with a bit of ash. Taste is disgusting - some weird sour / ashy / chemical cleaning agent thing. They could not possibly have qualiy tasted this before they allowed it out to the stores - this is a brand damaging beer.

Bottle: The aroma consists of dark chocolate, light burnt notes, black coffee, and a touch of vanilla. It pours a dark brown with some orange highlights and a small beige. The flavor starts with a quick dose of dark chocolate. There’s some fruit in the background. The finish has moderate-heavy burnt notes, black coffee, and faint vanilla. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation,
