Bottle. The pour was a deep dark murky black with a large (2-3 finger) light brown rocky head that lasted a decent while leaving behind some really nice residue floating on top thus producing some really excellent lacing.
The aroma was wonderfully robust with a burnt dark bread malt and a mild sweet leathery yeast with notes of dark chocolate, dark roasted coffee, licorice, some dark fruit and a hint of molasses.
The taste was lightly sweet and malty with a hint of chocolate from the onset then became a mild bitter sweet with a nice note of coffee at the end with the flavor lasting a nice long while proceeding the swallow.
Mouthfeel was nice a full in body and rather creamy and a tad dry in texture with a mild carbonation.
Overall a superb Imperial Stout, very easy to drink and very enjoyable on the taste buds.

Bottle, thanks Casey! Chocolate malt aroma with roasted barley notes as well as a bit of licorice. Pours black with a large light brown head and excellent lacing. Starts with roasted barley and just a bit coffee flavor. Finishes smooth with excellent chocolate flavors that linger on the palate. Nice imperial stout, not as rich as some, but definitely enjoyable.

Pours a solid lack with a brown head and lacing. It has a nice, donkey aroma with lots of malt and some chocolate. The flavor is smoke, malt, and chocolate throughout with a semisweet finish over a medium-heavy body.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours very dark almost black with a thin tan colored head. Very smooth taste with a creamy texture and a hint of coffee and fruit. A little thinner than other Imperial Stouts and not as bold flavoring. It was not harsh or bitter but rather enjoyable to drink but not quite as good as some others. A good beer at the price of $4.99 for a 550ml bottle. I’d like to try their oatmeal stout to compare.

Cerveza de color muy oscura, con una capa de espuma de color canela, con una buena retención y una textura muy cremosa.
Aroma muy perfumada y compleja, destacan las maltas oscuras, con matices de chocolate negro, de café, de azúcar moreno y de madera.
Tiene un sabor muy suave, no resulta difícil de beber, al principio destaca la malta tostada y su sabor a café, su levadura y para terminar la sensación dulce del chocolate. Es un poco amargo y seco al final. Esta cerveza es una maravilla, muy buena.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2014 A competent Imperial Stout. While it doesn’t threaten the "big boys" of the I.S. world, it does hold its own with strong chocolate and roasted malt tones. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Barwa ciemnobrązowa, prawie nieprzejrzysta. Piana średnio pęcherzykowa, krótka. Aromat winogronowy, podobny do cognacu (ale bez nut alkoholowych), z lekkimi elementami gorzkiej czekolady. Smak pełny, gorzka czekolada, praliny, karmel, przyjemna słodowość. Delikatnie zbyt niska goryczka.
