Old Viscosity meets Stone’s RIS. 22oz bottle aged 9 months. This was beer perfection in every way. good sweetness up front. earthy dark almost smoky finish that stretched out across the back of the pallet. lots of complex notes and flavors. Had a few younger bottles last nov/dec and would have rated them a low 4. this aged extremely well and I will be investing a case for my cellar once it’s released again.

Bomber at Jerry’s. Black with good, creamy cappuccino head / Winey, roast, bourbon nose / Full body, chewy and creamy, balanced, with long, lingering finish / Lush flavors of dark roast coffee, vanilla, bittersweet chocolate, nuts, bourbon, an brown sugar, with dry hop notes / Perfect - I regret the .1 deduction.

Bottle: This was fricking great...Black as night, creamy chocolate head, A little too much carbonation (very very think foam). Sweet, smokey, cocco overtones. I can wait for bottle # 2...

This beer poured a very opaque color w/ thick lasting brown head and lacing. The nose was a very nice blend of roast and coffee w/ a hint of grain and what seemed like dark fruit. The mouth was the same. The mouthfeel was full bodied, well-rounded, and creamy. One of my favorites.

Thanks Noah (htsprint1)! The aroma that drifts from the glass is strongly represented by the fragrances of oats, anise, and molasses. It is a black colored solution that settles under a thick cocoa colored head. This thick beer perks the mouth as it smoothly slides over the tongue. The flavor is a plethora of cocoa, coffee, molasses, and even a hint of sassafras sneaks in the background. This beer fades leaving a nice coffee and licorice taste lingering.

A tasty deep, dark ale. Solid head with dark chocolate flavors. Very smooth for 10% ABV. Simply a great imperial stout! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Pizza Port: Dark, dark brown with a chocolate colored head. Aroma is sweet and can smell the alcohol. Very nice! The flavor is rich and chocolately. This beer is the first one I have felt compelled to describe in words. I'm glad my husband (diegogator) pursuaded me try this.

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2009 Nice aroma. Pretty nutty with a hint of caramel. Very dark in color. This is rich, black roasty and extremely tasty.
