Part of the sampler tray at the bitter tasting room in Vancouver. Very strong rich in chocolate and coffee. High alcohol. Well done

I guess this tastes like coffee and chocolate because those guys said so and it kind of does. I drank this second and it went down pretty easy. This is a good beer to drink after the first beer. Read this sentence second last.

Pours great with nice foamy mocha head but not so much lacing. Smells a liitle nutty with some booze and roast malt aromas. Medium consistency - light for style. Aftertaste is pretty light, doesnt stay with you long. A bit disappointing, actually. Had this bottle on sale at volos for $10! Great deal.

650 ml bottle. Pours a very dark brown with thin tan head. Aromas of dark chocolate powder and burnt malt. Flavors of bitter dark chocolate. Dry and somewhat acidic.

Pours a nice black with little tan head. Roasted malts, chocolate, slight bitterness on the finish. Smooth, but I like my Imperial stouts heavier. Was oddly thin for 8.3. Decent flavor though. Alright brew.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Pitch black, thin brown head. Deep chocolate malt nose. Thin bitter chocolate and roasted malt taste. Flat, bitter and sour... a concoction only a beersnob could love, certainly not a lagerboy! DNFL (Definately Not For Lagerboys)

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
4 oz sample courtesy of Cratez. A very dark oily pour with a creamy mocha cap. Mainly roasty nose has dark chocolate, some vanilla, and minty hops. Very bitter and roasty like black coffee. Almost no sweetness. Chalky and extremely dry. Full bodied and bitter finish with black coffee lingering. Good effort.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour deep brown almost black nice brown head good lacing. Aroma coffee, chocolate, vanilla, roast, espresso, cocoa powder. Taste roast, cereal, coffee, malt, caramel, milk chocolate, vanilla, strange taste I cant quite place. MF creamy smooth full body very mild carb. Tasty brew but nothing to make it stand out in the crowd.

650 mL bottle. Looks the part, with a nice beige head. Lotsa roast in the nose and mouth. I also found chocolate and nuts in the nose, and chocolate, caramel and a little coffee in the mouth. No alcohol. Nice body; not great. A fine beer.
