22oz. Bottle: Aroma is medium sweet. Smells of chocolate, coffee, malts, cream, roasting, and vanilla. Poured black in color with a small brow head that diminished. Opaque. Good lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes mainly of chocolate malts, with roasting, coffee, alcohol, and a hit of cream. Medium to full body. Thick texture. Average carbonation. Long, malty, chocolate finish. Overall good, but a little boring.

hopson (635) - Williamsville, New York, USA - JUN 22, 2007
bottle: jet black, more carbonation than I was thinking. substantial tan head. chocolate, coffee, aroma. bitterness was there, with a great finish about 3 seconds after the beer is down the gullet. Nicely done. A beer that requires a long time to drink.

estoppel (1028) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUN 22, 2007
Very dark brown body, dense tan head with some staying power, chocolate and smoke in the nose. Smoky, chocolatey, with some bourbon notes and moderate bitterness. A contemplative beer.

The description is correct, this is a LUSCIOUS DARK ALE. The aroma was a brilliant blend of hops and sweet malty flavors. The taste took all the flavors in the aroma and added a touch of bourbon and oak to make it absolutely a must have for any fan of well aged beer.

Bomber, thanks to aspidites. Pours a murky blackish brown with a thick tan head. A touch of brown sugar on the nose. Medium body. Lightly sweet taste loaded with malt and toast. Maybe a bit of fruit. Pine and alcohol finish.

22. Thanks, Aspidites! Pours deep grainy opaque black with a thick tan moussy head. Nose seems almost vacant at first, and really is fairly slight, but has some things to recommend it--a little bit of roast and toast. Super bold attack: big body, lots of flavors, decent carb. Roast and chocolate and sharp notes of grain husk and biscuit. Lovely piney hop notes on the finish. Beautifully done.

I think if you taste this youíll agree it shares more in common with an Imperial Stout than anything else, the brewers qualms aside. Deliciously dark, tastes of blueberries. Shares some of the flavor of North Coastís Rasputin Stout.
