Black pour with a tall, very dark head. Roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, a bit of earth, and some hot booze. Full bodied with a mostly smooth, but slightly carbonated body. Finishes slightly molasses sweet with a bit of bittersweet chocolate and booze. Pretty solid Impy stout.

Bottle from Happy’s Market, Ellensburg
Black color with generous brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, not too strong. Good body, lean, the mouthfeel is rather dry among Imperial Stouts; good flavor of roasted malt with a hint of dark chocolate, a bit more roasty and ashy in the final; good alcohol management.
Nothing impressive, but well balanced, bold, highly drinkable.

A nice fruity barleywine. Pours a bright red with a thick tan head. Smells of bright fruit and malts. Taste is creamy and very smooth, with strawberry, cherry and a watermelon jolly rancher finish. Had in the bottle.

Pours a rich deep ebony color with a short lived dark brown head. It has a mild aroma of coffee. It has a roasted flavor with a little bite but remains very drinkable. This one could be dangerous. But hey danger is my middle name. Love it.

Bottle. Pours a near black color with a moderate brown head on there. Nose is roasty and a bit sour like with a bit of licorice. Taste is a bit sweet and a little roasty, but has a bitter finish. I like it, as I like the style, but it’s nothing all that special.

luttonm (3415) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Draft at Uber, Seattle. Chocolatey brown. Smoky. Clean tasty flavor. Balanced for an imp stout, roasty. Not a standout but a real solid drinker

hopscotch (10265) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 7, 2014
Bottle... Pitch black pour with a small, brief head. The nose is a rich fudge-bomb - simple, but very nice. Full-bodied and chewy with modest carbonation. The flavor is roasty, burnt black malt with some caramel malt sweetness. Chocolaty, roasty finish. Bottle courtesy of biggsbowler!

jake65 (3011) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Bottle (06/2013): Very dark brown in color with a decent brown head. Sort of fizzy and fades out quick, leaving behind a thin beige ring. Nose is heavy in roast, but sweet. Molasses, anise, and burnt sugars come to mind. Translates well into the taste with a bit more emphasis on the sweet side than on the roast. Has some dark fruits and a light floral hop presence that really helps the finish from being noticeably cloying. Good stuff, a traditional ‘meat and potatoes’ example of the American RIS.
