nickd717 (3782) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 12, 2011
Draft. Dark brown in color with a one-finger well-formed tan head on top. Roasty and chocolaty aroma with a substantial coffee note. Smells great. The flavor is mildly sweet with a base of milk chocolate and roast and considerable hop bitterness. Medium-full bodied with somewhat soft carbonation. A pretty solid imperial stout overall.

Palme (3603) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 25, 2012
On tap @ Mikkeller bar. A near black one with a small lacing and sidesticking tah head. Aroma is filled with sweet-ish chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, leather and licorice. Light hints of tobacco also. Flavors are packed with chocolate paper. If you ever wonder how chocolate paper taste like, this is damn near the blueprint. Really coffee-strong also, not the dark concentrated - more like normal filtered coffee. It’s average carbonated and has a light oily texture. Enjoyable indeed. 13.05.2012

On tap at Dark Lord Day 2012. Chocolate malt and ash aroma. Black/brown with a small tan head. Chocolate, coffee, ash flavor with a roasted bitter finish. Smooth full body. Solid predictable stout.

Growler provided by Chris, poured into a Cigar City snifter... The beer pours a light black, with some dark tan head, ok retention and lacing... The aroma is standard, bitter dark chocolate with some smoke, light hop finish. Not bad, but not exciting me... The taste is right on with the nose, an average and tasty stout, but nothing crazy. Dark chocolate, a little roast bitter finish. Slightly above average stout, I’d drink at Pizza Port but wouldn’t go out of my way.

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 2, 2011
Draft at Haymarket. Pours a deep black/brown with a tan head. Nose is quite chocolatey with some pleasant roasty bits. Nose pleasant piney hops as well. On taste, there is more of the chocolate and some charcoal notes. Carafa? Quite cleanly fermented and balanced, really ties together as it warms. Has a fair level of hoppy notes as well, more of the floral and pine. Quite well made beer.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 19, 2011
Growler thanks to Chris from ba. Nice... Pours a predominantly stouty pour with a medium consistency and topped with a light beige head... Aroma is adequate and roasty with chocolate notes, solid double stout aroma... Flavors are sweet upfront, through the middle with a follow-up with roasted malts with a bittering backend. Body is solid with enough carb. A bit of residual sweetness towards the end but the bittering roast cuts through that.

VsXsV (3117) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 19, 2012
Draught at the brewpub. Opaque, black liquid with medium off-white/tan head. Aroma of coffee, ash, fruity hops, biscuit and cereal. Taste is dry and light to medium bitter with notes of coffee, ash and fruity hops. Full bodied with medium carbonation. Quite hoppy for an impy, but still nice.

Marsiblursi (3070) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 11, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2012 (Draught) Pours black with almost no head. The aroma holds hard roast - liquorice, espresso, dark chocolate, roasted nuts, brown sugar and asphalt. Some piny and earthy hops alongside a touch of vanilla and meat. The flavour is light to medium sweet, light to medium bitter and tiny acidic with notes of hard roast, balanced hops, brown sugar, vanilla and a touch of dark fruits. The mouthfeel is creamy, soft and light sticky with a light carbonation. Roasted and brown sugar-ish aftertaste. Medium to full bodied.

On tap @ PPOB - Pours a dark brown color with a small tan head. Light lacing. Aroma is roasted malt and toffee. Flavor is sweetened malt, chocolate, and light hops. Finish is lightly sweetened chocolate. Medium body. A very good beer.

Phone rate. Tap at OB. Black w/small tan head, down to a ring quickly. A half finger head will rouse with decent retention. Aroma of lots of roast, dark chocolate behind with toasty grain and light pine hops. Flavor has big roast and some bitter chocolate up front with some toasty malts and caramel lactose sweetness, some anise there as well as light coconut.A bit burnt and ashy in the dry finish, bitterness at a 6. Pretty low carbonation with a medium full body. Not my fave from OB--I like Z-Man much better, and 1% less ABV.
