It's nice to be able to finally brew some beer without restrictions on it. we came from Colorado where we could brew or try anything. We've been waiting 7 years to make a stout and we harnessed all that frustration into this batch of beer.

We didn't get caught up in the parameters of a specific style we just brewed a big fat hoppy beautiful beer. The timing of the law change couldn't have been better for us, because it has taken until this summer for us to get set up in our new brewery. We finally have some capacity to experiment with some new style. This could lead into a seasonal offering from us in the future. For now we're just glad we can satisfy the demands of the folks who have been on us since day 1 to make a stout.

Malt: 70/80 crystal malt, chocolate malt, black malt, roasted malt

Hops: Centennial, Willamette and cascade - on the dry hop!

Shared by thebeercellar at the footsex gathering. Poured black with a small tan head. Aroma has lots of hops, with some notes of roasted malt and cocoa. Flavor is equally abundant with hops, and as other has mentioned lacks the complexity and thick luscious mouth feel of the top beers in this style. Thanks for sharing Matt!

Nice black pour with thick tan head with good lacing. Roasted malt aroma with slight hop notes. Taste of roasted malt and mild notes of chocolate. Thin mouthfeel. Too thin for the style but expected from this brewery. Average.

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.

crizay (1050) - Brook Park, Ohio, USA - JAN 8, 2008
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.
