ACHops (1292) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 7, 2012
22oz bottle that’s been in the fridge at least a year. Pours thick inky black with copious fluffy toasted brown head. Aroma is oaky roasty chocolate malts. Rich chocolate malts again dominate the taste, balanced by firmly bitter hops. Soy and slight yeasty notes in the finish. I don’t notice the sugar, maybe that’s just what got us to 10%. An excellent imperial stout, though none of the barrel-aged notes that you get in the better ones that have been, you know, aged in barrels.

chinchill (4137) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 29, 2016
22 oz bottle served in a goblet in July 2016. Black, opaque body with a thick, durable tan head. Appealing aroma of toffee and dark malts with hints of vanilla, dark chocolate and brown sugar. The flavor largely follows. Excellent balance. Plenty of dark roasted grain without significant smoke, char or other burnt qualities. Excellent mouthfeel from the full bodied, well (medium) carbonated liquid, although there is some mild alcohol heat. Overall: no need to restrict this beer to winter, it’s more than good enough to enjoy year around.

Dr_MedievAle (201) - Alabama, USA - JUL 9, 2016
Pours pitch black with a decent amount of beige foam. Charbucks and subtle licorice on the nose. Tastes of acidic coffee, bitter licorice, and dark chocolate ganache. Not that bad.
