Draft at Fat Dragon. Holy shit. This REALLY doesnít drink like 13%! And that is dangerous. Black pour with ring of yan head. Great roasty cocoa nose, starts to shine a little more as it warms up. Flavor is massive sweet molasses and roast and vanilla. Perfect creamy chewy body. Reminds me of the first years batch of GBS sans the gingerbread part. Really amazing.

Bomber. The w00t pours a very dark brown with dark head that dissipates into none at all. Rich sweet chocolate and nuttiness in the aroma. Taste is dark chocolate, boozy, nuts, burnt coffee. Nice and thick. Good stuff.

Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - NOV 24, 2013
22oz. bottle, cellared for about 5 months. Rich and complex aroma of dark chocolate, praline, vanilla, tobacco, faint bourbon, medicinal alcohol, licorice, background spice from the rye, some dark malt breadiness and toast as well. Black in color with only a hint of dark brown shown towards the edge of the glass, head is very fine, diminishing. Flavor profile is earthy and roasty, full of dark malt character including coffeeish tones and dark chocolate, some fudgy sweetness in the background which is overtaken by peppery alcohol, hop bitterness, toffee, oak and faint bourbon lingering towards the finish. Smooth, thick, coating mouthfeel, quite warming and full with a huge body, as can be expected from something of this strength. Indulgent stuff here.

Large, light brown, lasting head. Excellent lacing. Muddy body. Aroma of clove, dates, brown sugar, vanilla, and tobacco. Creamy, fizzy, and full-body palate. Moderate sweetness, moderately acidic, and moderately bitter aftertaste.

Nationwide release 13% Imperial Stout collaborated by 3 geeks with awesome "gotta catch íem all" bottle designs. Sounds like a winner! Enjoyed at 60F in a wine glass.

A - Pours like molasses. Very thick and oily, pitch black and almost no head. Reminds me of a thick Stone RIS.

S - Toffee, Chocolate, Fudge and Espresso on the nose.

T - I swear I taste oak but I donít think this was oak aged. 13% RIS really should have gone in a barrel! The is the kind of beer 21 year old college kids who are stone fanboys must lose their shit over. I donít taste any of the booze. Sweetness is minimal for such a big beer. Lots of roast / toasty qualities and creamy coffee.

M - Thick and viscous, charred oak finish

O - This was pretty good but should be split 2 ways. The roast and lack of sweetness really wears on you.

Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a large foamy-soapy dark brown head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was black licorice, sarsaparilla, bakers chocolate, bourbon and more black licorice. The flavor was roasty and toasty with very strong black licorice, floral hops, bourbon, perfume and more black licorice. Very long toasty black licorice finish. Full bodied and smooth. Very nice.

Pours a solid black with a tan head and lacing. It has a great aroma of bourbon, pecans, and alcohol. The flavor is bourbon, strong alcohol, spicy rye, and some dark chocolate over a smooth, medium-heavy body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber poured into pint glass. Pours nearly black with almost no head. A vigorous dump at the end of the pour gets me a little bit of tan foam that settles into a ring. Aroma is Nutella, kettle corn, caramel, saltwater taffy. Oh and alcohol. Flavor has vanilla and dark chocolate, salty toffee, pecan skins, and a heap of thin whiskey heat in the finish. The booziness really ruins this.

Bottle from Total Wine Naples, shared @ Bruceís. The pourís brown with a small head. The aromaís of oatmeal, chocolate. A touch of brash bourbon, toffee. The taste is similar. Cocoa, roasted malts. Vanilla. Boozy, earthy, rich flavors. full body, oily. Overall, pretty drinkable despite its outside dimensions. Not bad at all.
