22oz bottle. Beautiful dark pour with a creamy tan head, Nice full palate mouth feel. Flavors include cofee, chocolate and molasses. I see other reviewers mentioning tobacco which I also got but didnít make the connection at the time. The alcohol is there but it is very well hidden. Surprised when we looked at the label and saw the 12% but was definitely feeling it by the end of the bottle. I instantly remembered the Barbapapa character from books we read to our kids when they were little.

aroma: salted caramel and rose petals. some chocolate and pizza dough. appearance: creamy mocha head. pours like motor oil. even as dark as it is, though, you can see the aggressive carb bubbles. taste: soy sauce, bitter coffee, and some astringent scorched-coffee pot coffee taste. lingers terribly. too bad, too, because the PALATE is pretty incredible: smooth and creamy like a milkshake. lively carb...astringent and long and gross finish.

Bomber from Monument in Concord, CA. Pours black with a slight tan head. Aromas of toasty dark malt, chocolate and perhaps a touch of coffee. Itís a very pleasing aroma. Full bodied. Very. Lots of dark malt/ treacle/chocolate and arguably some coffee. Not getting any heat. Like it.

marcus (6773) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 1, 2014
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours dark brown with a tiny tan head and a chocolate and coffee aroma. There is a rich smoked chocolate flavor with a bit of coffee. Extemely malt forward with the only bitterness attributed to the chocolate malt. A pleasant drink.

DocJitsu (1045) - Florida, USA - OCT 25, 2014
Pours a very dark brown; opaque. It has a short lived orangish tan head. Dark chocolate, dark malt, tobacco, and date nose. Smooth and thick mouthfeel. Semisweet chocolate and dark malt, date, tobacco, and all the richness I love in an impy stout.

I tried to like this but It wasnít great. Pours inky black. Aroma is heavy roast caramel and resin. Taste is charcoal, burnt toast, and just way to bitter with tar and roast. Finishes harsh and boozy.

22 ounce bottle, bottled December 2013. Served in a DFH snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch tan head that stayed around a while. Thereís also a good amount of lacing. I like the aroma a lot, the brew smells like coffee, roasted malt, dark fruit (cherries), molasses, nuts, and bittersweet chocolate. Taste is similar to the aroma, it tastes like roasted malt, coffee, milk and dark chocolate, nuts, molasses, smoke, nuts, and a bit of dark fruit. Mouthfeel/body is full, itís creamy and coating with a moderate amount of carbonation. I think this is a pretty good overall imperial stout, Iíll have to pick up more the next time I come across some. Pretty Things did a great job with this brew! $8.99 a bomber.

22 oz bottle. Dark brown with thick tan foam. Nose is chocolate, caramel and prune. Thick and creamy almost full body with a warming buzz. Taste like it smells; rich chocolate, espresso, bitter licorice and burnt coconut. Pretty Things takes it up a notch. Excellent.

Nera impenetrabile con una schiuma densa e pannosa. Al naso riporta aroma prevalente di liquirizia, caffŤ e piý lievi di cioccolato. In bocca Ť calda, di gran corpo, si percepiscono tutti i 12 gradi alcoolici. Da meditazione.
