On tap at the AZ Strong Ale Festival. Pours inky black with a trim brown head. Smells of toasted malts and dark fruit. Tastes of each with added notes of molasses and plum juice. Less malty than I was anticipating, but very sweet and agressive. Solid.

Bonus courtesy of IBrew2or3. Cheers, Dave! Pours a dark stout brown with a dark tan head. Nose is roasted malts, dark chocolate, slight smoke, and slight vanilla/ marshmallow. Flavor is similar- roasted malts, slight smoke, slight dark fruit, slight vanilla, and some marshmallow. Interesting imperial stout. Medium in body and the roast and fruit stay along with some raisiny dark fruit and mallow.

Countbeer (4425) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - JUL 1, 2012
Bottle @ZZT IV: Big brown head which disappears slow, on top of a black colored beer. Smell liquorice, wood, smoke and earth/ Taste brown sugars, liquorice, some toasted/roasted barley malts, some bitterness but more sweetness. Aftertaste of roasted barley malts, some sweets, again light bitter with more sweets being present. Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, full body and a creamy sticky texture. Not bad, but a bit too sweet.

Bottle from a trade with cbkschubert. Pours black with brown head. Roasted malt and chocolate aromas. Bittersweet milk chocolate and vanilla flavor with dark roasted malts and some espresso. Full body with minimal carbonation and thick and slick mouthfeel. Really nice beer if you like your impy stouts on the sweeter side. Thanks Craig.

Awesome black color with thin dark brown head. Reminds me of another great imperial, Old Rasputin. Great stout with a complex roasted taste.

This is another bargain beer found at Trader Joe's. Thanks to xlperro for the tip. At $1.25 for a 12oz bottle, this was a steal. Appearance: To the shock of no one, this imperial stout poured black with a cocoa brown head. The smell was of roasted coffee and chcolate. The flavor was slightly bitter yet creamy with chocolate undertones. This is a tasty imperial stout.

What in the freaking hell is wrong with this aroma. It smells like a jerkey factory. Deep black color with a short lived head that smells damn near like bag of jerky. Not overpowering for a stout though. I really don't taste the alcohol though, just some good amounts of chocolate.

In between the strong espresso roast and hops that bite just like the dog on the label, there's a huge amount of licorice - tastes like the good stuff - not that fake twizzler licorice - coats my gums and teeth. Smooth like milk and pitch black. Good stuff!

bottle-bottled 10/03. This is a fresh sample of this brew. pours pitch black thick and oily. very little carbonation, but more than expedition 02! rich, roasted palate with hints of chocolate milk and carmel. Nice chocolate finish. somewhat unbalanced, due to its fresh nature. A tad thin, maybe because of the low alcohol content for an imperial and the young age. I will keep my other bottle of this for aging.

Aroma is roasty, and sweet with cherries and chocolate. Head fades quick. Taste is medium bodied with a huge punch of stinging roast/hops/alcohol. Finish is all roasted and chocolate malt, with a little alcohol. Not a bad stout really, just something you have to man up for. Quite bitter.
