Bottle thanks to WillRunForBeer. Deep black pour with a small creamy head that fades to a nice film and leaves great lacing. Perfect appearance. Aroma is very nice and complex. Chocolate fudge, licorice, coffee beans, prunes, caramel, vanilla, and light pine. Taste has a nice candy sweetness up front with a mild bitter finish. Lots of dark chocolate and licorice, some dark fruit, caramel and molasses. Piney hop finish with a little char. Long lingering molasses sweetness. Medium to full body. Very good even though Im not a fan of strong licorice in my imperial stouts.

Bottle provided by Willrunforbeer, much thanks Brian on this nice stout. Pitch black in color mld head and lace. Aroma has a deep roast, earthy malt and charred ash.

The flavor is much the same as what the aroma delivers. What is a surprise is the bitterness in the finish. The bottle is ticked on the label Dec, 2014 so it is a fresher example. The bitterness does do a nice job at the balance of the sweet chocolate and earthy malt boldness. Mouthfeel does have a thick texture with a charred ashy finish. The ABV is really nicely integrated and not noticeable. Finely crafted.

Bomber. Pours Luke a nearly flat coke. Aroma is pine, molasses, dark chocolate. I expected a fair amount of hop flavor from the nose, and there is some, but it is subtle. Just a bit of pine hop on top of molasses, dark chocolate. Ashy bitterness in the finish.
