On tap at Boulder Strong Ale Fest (2014). Pour is deep black with a frothy brown head and good lacing. Big coffee, vanilla, cocoa, roast, toffee, and somewhat grassy aroma. Taste is cocoa nibs, earthy hops, Sumatra, caramel, vanilla, and toasted malt. Sweet velvety mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Awesome stout and easily one of the best offerings of the fest.

On tap @ Boulder Strong Ale Fest 2014. Pours a black appearance with a brown head. Dark chocolate, quite toasty aroma definitely with some spicy, piney hops. Moderate bitterness. Some sweetness but not bad. Burnt, chocolate flavor. A bit of vanilla. Pretty nice and enjoyable to drink.

Mortlach (1966) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 10, 2012
22/11/2012 Brasserie 4:20 (tap). Bevuta al Thanksgiving Day. Nera, impenetrabile, densa, schiuma color cappuccino, molto scura, non molto abbondante ma persistente. Al naso sentori di malti tostati, caffé, cioccolata e liquirizia. In bocca ha un attacco dolce, cioccolatoso, e un finale di liquirizia e caffé, amaro e lungo. Corpo medio-pieno, carbonazione abbondante, alcol incredibilmente nascosto. Imperial stout magistrale, per nulla estrema, ma di grande sostanza ed equilibrio.

Labove (427) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 5, 2012
Parte con uno degli aromi più potenti che mi sia capitato di sniffare, poi quando la si beve si percepisce un liquirizione eccessivo che rovina un po’ tutto. Non ne berrei più di 20cl e va bene così.

StefanSD (2385) - Ouray, Colorado, USA - DEC 2, 2011
Guest tap at Alpine Brewpub. Pours a thick black color with a tan haed that has fair retention. The aroma is medium with roasted acorns and biter burnt toast. The flavor is similar with lots of roasted nuts, black breads, molasses, mocha, coffee and biter walnuts. The palate is full, smooth and creamy with lively carbonation. Finishes long, dry and earthy. Overall: Very tasty powerhouse of a stout.
