Tasted while at the cask ale event at SW. Pours very dark with a tan head. Aroma is a little hoppy. Taste is very coffee with some light chocolate. A little thin, but still a nice brew.

This was recommended by a server at the Sweetwater brewery lounge (Thanks Jess). Sampled during the cask ale tasting.Nice hoppy nose, great malt backbone to hold the hops. Chocolaty, coffee taste that went great on a cool Georgia evening. Finishes well. I would recommend this one to my friend who is extrememly picky about beer. Thats high praise

Pours a very thick black liquid with a dark caramel head. The aroma is quite hoppy for a stout. Slight coffee aroma is present. The flavor hits wtih a nice coffee start and finishes with a hoppy chocolate after taste.

12 oz bottle. I cannot, for the life of me, remember who sent me this... sorry. Black with a brown head. Sweet nose, strong dark chocolate and some coffee. Full body, smooth, almost oily. Bitter chocolate and mild coffee flavors, some sort of dark fruit. Lightly dry chocolate finish. Excellent.

Seems rather calm for an Imperial stout, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a tasty stout. A spicy-tasting cola flavoring.

Black pour thin beige head. Aroma is very hoppy very green and leafy. This beer is freakin hoppy very leafy tasting hops, green and even a touch of mint with a hint of citrus is the dominator, roasted malt is the majority with chocolate there as well. But this beer is definitely dry-hopped and hopped to all hell, not bitter which is great but just a ton of hop flavor making it unique. Thin mouthfeel with low carbonation making this a little watery. A dry-hopped like crazy imperial stout is deinitely different but it need more actual stout flavors.

Black color. Quite intense aroma. Good body, good caramel-roasted malt mix, balanced, just the final is a bit thin. Not bad.

pitch black with almost no head. caramel nose with a strong roast. the booze really is apparent with a strong dark chocolate scent. nice espresso like flavor hits me first then a nutty toffee flavor rises up. sweet roasty coffee finishes well. i honestly expected this to disappoint, it didn’t. thanks for the bottle matt

Mystery 2.0. 12 oz poured a very thick black with fluffy dark brown head. Big hop nose. This is sweet and light, aged to perfection. There is no trace of alcohol in this, with a nice warming. Lots of hops, front to back. Very tastey. THANKS.
