2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours black with some tan head around the edges of glass. Smells like espresso and dark wine notes, not unlike pinot noir. Tastes like coffee, dark chocolate and alcohol with a stong bitter hops finish. Mouth feel was thick and oily with little to no carbonation. Maybe I got a bad bottle. 7oz bottle in 09’, so it has been around a while. Eh

Decent imperial stout. Hits all the nice chocolate, coffee with a nice sweet, bitter profile. A bit strong on the hops, but that will mellow with age. Nice beer. The alcohol is hidden well in this one. Overall, just a mediocre Imperial Stout.

Une stout comme je les aime. Foncée, torréfiée, caramélisée. L'alcool est présente, mais tellement agréable!

Black no foam. Smell is mild roast. Taste is some roast bitterness - nice level; nor is it too sweet. Though not overly complex this is a great drinker. Just a mild sweetness on finish.

Crap. I already rated this and gave my witty/drunken comments but it didn't go through. Stupid wifi. Nice dark cocoa beer.

Tap from Lazy Dog. Pours a deep dark opaque brown with a thin layer of tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate and coffee. Taste of really intense coffee up front with a nice chocolate balance.

Well, it has a liquory sweet aroma. Very full body and extensive hoppiness. Wonderfully crafted. Like a meal! Motor oil black.

This is a 2011 bottle. Pours a gloopy opaque black with a thin short lived tan head. The nose is big and robust with a solid punch of roasted malt, light espresso and a good pinch of cocoa. Some moderate sweetness in the mid palate with a mixture of espresso beans, chocolate, earthy malts, vanilla and solid dark notes. The finish is bitter and warm with a lengthy aftertaste of roasty bitterness. A smooth but intense mouthfeel completes the package. A great brew to cellar
