Pours pitch black with a small tan ring of fizz. Smells of licorice and a touch of coffee. Taste is licorice and mint with a bourbon vanilla sweetness and a touch of chocolate. Full-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Schalfly Imperial Stout finishes with a medley of sweeetnesses.

Not a bad stout, though a bit too acidic and licoricey. Rich and dark with a nice roasty aroma.

On tap, pours a very dark brown, nearly black with a thin brown head, the aroma is of dark chocolate and fudge, the flavor has a sweet front end with a chocolate finish, thick mouthfeel through out, pretty nice.

07 & 08 great. Fantastic beer. Not much roast. Lots and lots of caramel. The 2010 was not as good.

Notes from 12-20-2010: You know immediately that this is an Imperial Stout. Rich, dark color. Nice head (poured from tap) that lingered. Although aroma does not seem apparent at first, the pungent oak barrel caramelized sugars come forward with the sweet smell of bourbon. A crisp, clean, taste as it sits in the mouth is followed by the warm, relaxing bourbon going down. Overall, this has to be my all-time favorite beer.

Draught at Shenanigans. Light chocolate and overall creamy taste. Medium body overall.

ContemplateBeer (1542) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Aroma of moderate coffee, milk chocolate and some resin. Appearance is black with bubbly tan head. Flavor actually had a touch of salt with the usual coffee and chocolate notes. Palate is medium, slick and soft. Good, and interesting to boot.

Draft. Extremely dark brown color, brown head. Aroma of brownies and subtle brandy. Taste is rich and chewy brandied chocolate bon bons. Very nice

Growler to snifter. Looks good; cola black with beige lacing. Smells sweet and malty with notes of bourbon. Tastes the same, only better, with a slightly thin but solid mouthfeel. Definitely getting some bourbon notes in this. Good beer.
