Poured into snifter. Almost black with 2 finger brown head. The lacing lingers but disappears after a few minutes. Smells like a lot of chocolate, coffee, and faint vanilla. Tastes like mocha coffee with lots of vanilla! Milk and dark chocolate aftertaste, sweet. Light palate turns sticky and full. Pretty good beer, it wasn't overpowered by chocolate, nice balance!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From that bright red 750 ml. bomber. Dark brown to near black pour with lasting, lingering tan head. Dark baker’s chocolate and malts on the nose and that is the main thing. Everything else is immaterial. Medium body with a slight acidity. Full chocolate malt beginning leading up to a mild bitter finale. Dry. very nice and worth high marks.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle pour, opaque black body, big light walnut head fades eventually to a ring leaving moderate lacing. Aroma is chocolate, raisin, vanilla, bread. Flavors are chocolate, raisin, plum, coffee. It’s a sweet beer, with a slightly bitter finish. Body is not super thick, but still rich and smooth, carbonation moderate.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Really nice chocolate imperial stout! The beer pours a jet black color with a very dark brown head. The head leaves a little bit of lacing around the inside of the glass, but not a whole lot. The nose smells of a molten-lava chocolate cake dessert and some bitter hops. The flavors are all chocolate, bitter, sweet, smooth, milky, creamy and slightly hoppy toward the finish. I got a very subtle hint of alcohol in the aftertaste, as well.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks Timderoeck! Dark brown colour, complex aroma of chocolate milk, dark fruit, vanilla and roasted malts. Taste is not as sweet as the aroma. Dry bitter finish. Not bad if you like these type of chocolate beers but not really my cup of tea.

Dark chocolate all the way on the flavor, slight undertones of roasted malt balls, oats, and a slightly bitter hops finish, but probably the most chocolate I have ever tasted in a beer
