Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 17, 2014
Bomber. Pours inky black with a large foamy brown head. Good head retention. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts and a bit of umami and green hops. The taste is roasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee, green coffee, mild hints of vanilla and caramel. Medium bodied, low carbonation, slight alcohol warmth. Straightforward, solid imperial stout.

Marduk (2445) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 17, 2014
750ml bottle. Pitch black color. Tiny to almost no head. Alcohol, roasted malts, chocolate in aroma. Tastes pretty much the same. Nice balance. Very easy to drink.

Unimpressed compared to the ratings. Not a very strong aroma and compared to many imperial stouts.

dbarnold (1126) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - JAN 9, 2014
liked this better than the barrel aged version, and it was very good. Big, roasty, some good hops, and a lot of chocolate. Lingering somewhat dry finish. I thought it was well balanced and very tasty.

Too much coffee flavor for my taste. If I liked coffee this would be an excellent beer.
