22 oz. bottle in trade from Snojerk321- if you don’t know who, you need to know. Served in tumbler- poured like motor oil out of a ’81 Chevy Citation, low-medium carbonation of tiny bubbles, whisps of thin tan wafers for a head. Aroma of a heavily roasted malt, dark chocolate, and hatred. Hits the mouth with a wide and heavy body, malt kicks you right in the nards and continues to pummel you, dark molasses and hard 24 hour old on a burner coffee comes in the middle, finish has a selection of fine hops that puts a tag on your toe and declares you clinically dead. It reminds me of drinking SA Triple Bock, the whining of narcissistic Obama supporters, and nipple twisting TINKER Bell fans that haven’t step foot in MI, let alone da you pee, eh! MUST... GET... MORE!!!!

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2009 Bottle: Pours very black. Aroma seemed a little light, that was the worst part about it. Rich tan head. Strong expresso taste with a sweet finish. lightly carbonated. after a few sips (or the temp rose) the alcohol was more noticable. Drank at about 55 F, as stated on the bottle. Perfect temp.

Great chocolate stout! Big on dark chocolate and roasted coffee flavor. I would say its on par with the Imperial Russian Stout but lots more chocolate. The high alcohol is an added bonus but you wont notice it!

Sample from a bottle at the Stone tasting in Tallahassee. This one has a striking aroma of deep roasted chocolate that really stands out. Rich and smooth with more chocolate in the flavor. I really enjoyed this one, outstanding beer.

ok, i had this beer once, and it was some time ago. it was probally one of my favorite brews of all time for dark ales. i rembered it poured thick and black with an off white head that had the most awsome smell and aroma. could taste chocolate, malt and hops all combined with the perfect proportions. if i could have this again, i would buy it in an instant. great brew from stone!!

mesperon (205) - Hillsdale, New Jersey, USA - SEP 28, 2009
Pours black as night with a chocolate brown edge, beautiful brown head. Huge aroma of deep roast, lots of chocolate and a little coffee. Very bold taste. Dark and bitter as it looks, chewy mouthfeel. Dark chocolate is very obvious and compliments to roast very well. Awesome beer.

YK23 (465) - Haifa, ISRAEL - FEB 18, 2010
Bottle at a tasting: oatmeal porridge, milk chocolate, bitter chocolate, sweet malt, roasted malt, honey, mild coffee, cocca notes, some charred wood, weak smoked meat, delicate hops lingers through, great aftertaste, very blanced mellow and refined imperial stout.

I had this when it was first released and now again two years later. I have to say with the age on it, this stuff is amazing. Extremely smoky aroma and flavor, with hints of coffee and chocolate. As malty as this is the bitter finish is a plus. If you can still find this pick it up, well worth it!
