Maybe no one believed you the last time you encountered the stellar contact between hop and roasty malt character,but succumb to a new stout trek.The imperial strikes back with a fuller body and U-F-Ohhhh so many hops. Set your phasers to stunning - because this is the most out of htis world hopped up stout on earth.

Bottle. Pours black with a light brown head. I could smell the hops before I lifted the glass to my nose. Aroma is of hops, chocolate, roasted malt, and licorice. Big hop character to balance it out. Very sticky mouthfeel. As it warms up, even more of the hops come through. Shit, itís good.

Dfonorow (1676) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 29, 2014
Bottle. Pour is black with a small beige head that fades quickly. Aroma and flavor is similar to a black IPA - citrus hops, chocolate malt, roast, slight licorice, and resin. Finish has a bit of booze coming through.

Christpuncher (1638) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 12, 2014
This is one hoppy imperial stout. Starts sort of boozy with a bitter hoppy boozy finish. Has a fruity sweetness to it. Had a bottle pour out if a bomber at home. Pours black in color with a tan head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jjgmd (1608) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - OCT 11, 2014
With Z , pours a pitch black color with a nice Java head. Nose is hoppy, with a bit of malt. Complex taste somewhere between a black IPA and a stout, with deep chocolate malt and a hoppy citrusy taste.... nevertheless a delicious favor. Finish is bitter sweet with a chooclate citrusy finish. Another great beer from one of my favorite microbreweries. quaff score 9 / 10

Bomber. Pours black with a brown head and hoppy, fruity aroma with roasted malt and chocolate. Taste is strong, nice hoppy bitterness with citrus flavors along with lots of roasted malt, liquorice, and chocolate into the bitter finish. Delicious, flavorful brew

Atom (1593) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 19, 2014
Bomber pours a dark brown/black with a medium reddish tan head. Aroma of chocolate, molasses, caramel, brown sugar, and faded hops. Bitter hops present upfront in taste, smooth chocolate, with sweet slick molasses. Nice!

hopscotch (9896) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle... Pours black with a small, creamy, beige head. Decent retention. The bouquet is chocolaty, roasty and nutty. Full-bodied with vibrant carbonation. The flavor is bitter, resiny, charred and piney. Finishes scorched and bitter. Bottle courtesy of BBB63!

LtDan (1805) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Appearance: Pours black with a sudsy tan ring around the edges.

Aroma: Herbal hop nose, coffee roast, light wet dog.

Taste: Herbal and citrusy hops, bitter chocolate/bitter black coffee, chocolate orange. Alcohol fairly hidden.

Mouthfeel: Slick, full bodied, a little oily. Modest carbonation.

Overall: A pretty tasty hoppy stout, probably the best one Iíve tried to date. Iím starting to pick up on Pipeworks house character across all their stouts too.

ICEatALAMO (1066) - Troy, Michigan, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle. The pour is dark. The aroma is nice and malty, chocolate. The taste has subtle hops, but mostly just a roasty malt imperial stout, but good for one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tectactoe (2882) - Michigan, USA - JUN 25, 2014
Bottle: Thanks, Ed. Oily, super black pour with a fine bubbled, deep mocha foam. Aroma of plentiful dark malt, roasted barley, bitter cocoa beans, ashy hops, a touch of charred bitterness & woodsy notes with just a kiss of dried, dark fruit in the back. Taste is bitter chocolate... weíre talking 100% cacao, super-dark & roasty cocoa notes with a touch of dry coffee beans. Thereís a very faint milkiness that comes around mid-palate but the sweetness aspect is very small compared to the roast of this bad boy. Hint of anise in the finish with a lingering, bittersweet cocoa note on the palate. Lovely, creamy mouth feel. A very nice stout.
