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.

Chocolate, coffee, molasses, pipe tobacco, and dark fruit in the aroma. Taste starts creamy, malty and sweet, with bitter chocolate/coffee and a fair amount of alcohol in the finish. Really good effort from a really good brewery.

Bottle from Wine Club. Pours opaque black with a medium creamy dark brown head that dissipates slowly with nice lacing. Aroma is very roasty, cooca, anise, molasses, charred wood. Flavor is fairly sweet but with a strong compensating bitterness, anise, burned malts, baking cocoa prominent. Fullish body, creamy mouthfeel. A pretty solid effort.

bbbeer (592) - Massachusetts, USA - JUN 14, 2014
Very dark brown with minimal brown head. Strong aroma of roasted malt, coffee and caramel. Full body, just a little alcohol. Flavor of coffee, nuts, toasty malt, chocolate, butterscotch. Flavor is not the most complex but itís very rich and quite smooth as well for the high ABV.

Pours black into a snifter. Mocha head with good retention pancakes and recedes leaving scant trailing sheets. Soy, licorice, chocolate and dark pit fruit aromas. Thick with hot chocolate and soy upfront turning to licorice before the lasting espresso finish.

Pours basically black with a decent head and good lacing on the glass.

The aroma is plum & roasty malt mostly. Itís got a mild spiciness, chocolate, & dark fruit.

The flavor is sort of coffe forward, itís got a light smokiness, some raisin and a whole bunch of dark chocolate. Itís decently bitter all around and isnít especially sweet.

12% abv? You jokin? Gracious thatís a lot higher boost than I had perceived drinking the beer.
