On tap (nitro?) 4 oz. sampler at Tampa Bay Brewing Company in Yber City (Tampa), FL. Opaque, near black with a creamy tan head and excellent lacing. Aroma of roasted malt and mild chocolate. Taste of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. Medium body and medium/low carbonization with a nitro-like mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had on draft poured a dark brown, almost black color with aromas of light chocolate, roast, and some earth. Flavors follow suit, a solid basic stout, wish they out this on more.

On draft at Tampa Bay Brewing Co. Coral Springs. I felt like this one had great potential but is missing some elements. Could use some more coffee/chocolate flavor. The ABV is masked very well and it’s pretty easy to sip on.

Tap at the brewpub. Very dark pour with a tan head. Nice coffee aroma. Oily palate but not overly dense. Dry roasty malts. Good beer.

Thanks to OmegaX for sharing. The nose on this one was of coffee, cocoa and dirt. High carbonation gave to a dry body, but quickly fading into a swath of coffee beans and chocolate covered raisins. I liked this one, I only wish for lighter carbonation... and a barrel-aged version as well.

Tap at TBBC. Nose is tons of earthy cocoa, some light roast, and a nice amount of good ol’ chocolate. Body is dark, dark brown with a tan head. Taste follows suit with a dryish finish. Again, lost of chocolate and some cocoa and roast. A nice drinker.

Travlr (15894) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 20, 2012
Draft at the source. Listed as Iron Rat Stout, 8.0%, and described as an imperial stout. Almost black, dark brown head. Aroma of chocolate syrup. Taste is similar. Medium body.

drowland (6841) - Georgia, USA - MAR 13, 2012
3/13/12. On tap at the brewery as Iron Rat, but listed as 10%, so I guess it’s this? Almost all black pour, ruby edges, with a small brown head that fades fast. Huge roast and coffee aroma with bits of tartness and caramel. Big roasty and chocolate kick but with loads of butterscotch... almost slick feeling. It’s not horrible, but nothing to phone home about.

Gription79 (2614) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - DEC 31, 2011
Growler shared by Ibrew2or3 at a tasting in April 2011. Aroma: smoky, tobacco, roasted malts
Taste: roasted malts, chocolate, spicy
Overall: A great Imperial Stout with a solid bitterness and a thick/full body. Not overly sweet.
