Silphium (3160) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUN 8, 2007
Bottle from sliffy. Deep red-brown body, medium cream head. Translucent. Roasted malt aroma with hints of licorice. Chocolately roast body, balanced by bitter, earthy hops. Somewhat woody finish. Oily palate, medium-bodied, with a fairly strong bitter, hoppy finish.

Gregis (1281) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - JUN 7, 2007
Pours jet black with a creamy/frothy, tan head. The aroma is of sweet toasted malts, dark bread, molasses, chocolate, plums, faint coffee/espresso and a hint of alcohol. The mouthfeel is almost medium bodied but fairly light for the style, sticky and slightly tart at it’s quick finish. The flavor follows the nose with sweet malts, plums, chocolate, coffee and faint alcohol notes, concluding slightly tart. While not as rounded or complex as many imperials, it is a remarkably "easy drinker" for the style.

tjthresh (1865) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - JUN 4, 2007
12 ounce bottle bottled on JAN10 2007. Dark brown with a light brown head. The aroma is pretty milky, with some chocolate. There seems to be a pretty big punch of hops as well. The flavor is of moderatly bitter chocolate, wich really amps up the hop bitterness. Pretty rich palate. Nice brew.

shigadeyo (2976) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - MAY 29, 2007
Date: 4/28/2007
Event: DarkLord Day 2007
Location: Three Floyds Brewing Co. Parking Lot
Serving: Sampled from a 12 oz bottle (Mar 08 2007).

Tasting Notes
Aroma: Not very much in the aroma expect some faint roasted qualities.
Appearance: Very dark brown color with a foamy dark beige head that leaves some lacing.
Flavor: Roasty with hints of coffee and dark chocolate. Dry in the finish. Nicely balanced.
Palate: Medium body.
Overall: A unique twist on the Imperial Stout style. A little Irish is never really a bad thing, right?!

thanks to illini08 for picking this up. roasted malt aroma with some chocolate notes. as expected the pour is quite dark with a khaki head. flavors range from roasted malts with some chocolate, coffee, caramel and enough hops to add additional interest. alcohol is pretty well disguised. decent for the style.

cbrixius (136) - Newberrytown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2007
Poured a dry dark amber with brown head. No lacing. Rich chocolate aroma. Coffee and molasses flavor. Pretty light character for an imperial stout, it’s more inbetween. Overall a good selection

Indra (2593) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - MAY 4, 2007
12oz. bottle. Fairly intriguing aroma of dark chocolate, molasses, earthiness, toffee, raisin, plum and blackberry, some very light coffeeish roastiness here, as well. Opaque brown-black color with a fine, slight head. Bottle-conditioned. Flavor features a blend of rich chocolate and dark fruitiness with lighter espresso notes and even some vinous touches in the background. Some slight bitterness, smoke and floral hop flavor creep in at the finish. Toasty, creamy and semi-dry on the palate with a full body. Actually pretty enjoyable, sort of an easy going version of the style but there are some nice things going on here.

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - MAY 2, 2007
Poured Brown with a short offwhite head. Aromas of roasted malt, coffee, and a bit of smoke with some chocolate. Flavor was roasted malts, coffee, and chocolate. Somewhat watery on the palate and medium body for a stout. Dry finish. Interestingly dry for an imperial stout.
