Btl pours a black color like dirty motor oil. Huge tight compact dark tan head,lingers forever never dissapating. The inside of glass is covered with lace with each gulp of beer consumed. Aromas of chocolate,coffee,earth, toasted bread, burnt sugar, a whiff of licorice and a hint of booze. Tastes of milk chocolate, espresso,sweet toffee,figs and alcohol. Big full body, nice almost nitro like carbonation, soft creamy mouthfeel and a roasty finish. This beer is great tasting and smooth. It will definitely warm you up on a cold winter night. Bold,robust flavors keep me wanting more, unfortunately I only have one bottle. Outstanding imperial stout! FYI bottle dated 9/1/11.

HopHeadinAZ (180) - Arizona, USA - DEC 12, 2007
22oz bottle: 2007 Release. Pours almost black with a fleeting medium tan head. Chocolate is the most noticeable aroma with a hint of coffee. Chocolate and roastiness come out in the taste that is clearly on the sweet end along with some alcohol burn on the finish. The mouth feel is appropriate to the style and lingers pretty nicely. This is a good beer overall but could benefit from a little better balance for the sweetness.

Tsotsi (178) - Florida, USA - AUG 8, 2010
2009 bottle. Pours black with a nice brown head. Nose is sweet, malty, spices, caramel, mollasses and some cinnamon. Flavors are similar to the nose as well as roasty, licorice, chocolate and a nice bitter finish which balances it nicely. Nice brew.

SoberDave (178) - Escondido, California, USA - JAN 12, 2015
Nice spicy aroma with a hint of cinnamon. Pours dark with a foamy light brown head. Full of flavour. Dark malts, chocolate, smoky roast nuts and black licorice. A little overwhelming by the end, not the most pleasant mouthfeel.
