Draught at Tadg. Black with dark tan head. Lots of chocolate and malts in the aroma. Flavour of burnt malts, coffee and smoke to go with the chocolate. Not too sweet. A very nice smooth mouthful.

Draft. Poured black with almost no head. As with most imperial stouts you get a lot of coffee and sweetness in the nose. Taste has coffee, chocolate and a bit of hops. One of my favorite Rogue beers.

Growler. Very dark brown, nearly black with a small deep tan head. Aroma of black malt, chocolate, licorice, coffee and ash. Flavor is lots of bitter roasted malt, molasses, coffee and some alcohol. Full body with a smooth, lush mouth feel. This one if very strong, rich and bitter but nicely balanced.

10oz pour at Fireside. Very dark, thick and has a tan head of tight bubbles. Aroma is dominated by hops and roasted notes. Flavor is the same but chocolate and coffee start to come in as it warms up. Bitter from dark malts and from hops. Pretty good.

Massiv flaska som känns som den väger ett kilo bara själva flaskan. Från 2007 lagrad hos Peter. Varm chokladaktig doft. Lite vinösa toner. Smaken har tydliga inslag av bitterchoklad, svaga toner av aska. Kärv och bitter helt klart.
