UPDATED: NOV 20, 2013 This is one of the best beers I have ever tasted. It had a very roasty smooth flavor that made you go damnnnnn that was good. There was dough smell and feel to the beer all the way. It was not a very stout beer but more of a chilling the most to say the least type beer. I could drink a four pack of this easy. I would take this over to my wifes mothers house it was so good. No bullshit to this beer it is what it says., Imperial. This is one beer to look for my friends. Though its smooth and tasty, I would still suggest a piece of Big Red after this one my friends. Happy Beer Day to all of the drinkers of the world.

Nice dark color and a dark chocolate smell. I thought it seemed very thin and almost watery specially for an imperial stout. For the style I would put it very low.

550ml bottle. Pours motor oil black with about a finger and a half of dark khaki head. Aroma is roasted malts and some English-style hops. Taste is burnt toast, licorice, chocolate, and some subtle hops at the finish. Good creamy mouthfeel. Overall, this wonít blow anyone away and is remarkably weak for an imperial stout, but itís a good budget stout at about $4 a bottle.

355ml brown bottle. Deep dark in the glass, dark beige head. The beer starts intense roasted, liquorice, brown sugar. The mainpart is mild, not too sweet, molasses, dark roasted aroma. The aftertaste is long, malty-dark, black cherries, dried plums!

Wow. I remember this beer so fondly, but now after so many other great interpretations, this one falls way short. Maybe I just got a bad bottle. It pours a dark brown color with a thin tan head. The aroma has some light chocolate and cola, but more green vegetals and some astringency. The flavor is a tad better with very sweet cocoa, bread, light astringency and solvents. Roasted malt comes through only in the finish. Not great. I used to love this beer.

Great beer. More of a subtle taste then some. Give this some time to sit in your mouth. Very complex and wonderful flavor. Perfectly balanced imperial stout.

Very good beer. Not as good as their oatmeal stout. Definitely worth the purchase if you havenít had it yet.

Bottle from wegmans. Pours black with a medium sized brown head. The aroma has a good bit of milk chocolate but is simple. The taste is roasty, sweet milk chocolate, light coffee, and pretty sweet. A bit thin on the palate but solid
