Dark black pour with a persistent khaki head. Nose has a lot of sweetness and a lot of roast with some dark coca and acidic coffee. However, it really comes together in a lovely aroma. Flavor is big yet smooth with roast and a touch of smoke, some bitter dark cocoa, and a semi-bitter coffee ish tone. Roasty and full, and quite dark without being syrupy.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the brewpub, labeled as 8.0% ABV. Pours nearly black, with just a faint hint of mahogany at the edges. A lasting, thick, mocha colored head leaves dense rings of lacing on the glass. Aromas of bold, bittersweet dark chocolate and burnt caramel are deepened with notes of ripe fig and raisin. Flavors follow suit, nice and chocolaty, with a good amount of sweet caramel and sweet mocha. Dark, sweet fruit notes bridge the gap to an earthen, hoppy finish. Thick and syrupy on the palate, the obviously high sugar content leaves a sticky film in the mouth. This is a good imperial stout, but I prefer mine with a little more roast to back up the choco-caramel sweetness.

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.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2007 A lot of chocolate in the aroma and almost has a gooey, not quite all the way baked, brownies smell. Some bitter notes in there as well. Deep black with a tight mocha head that stays for the whole beer. More chocolate malt in the fore with just the right alcohol coming over the top. Some mild nutty notes. Finish is creamy and bitter. Definitely a lower key Imperial abv wise, but the flavor is very good, almost delicate, though still quite thick in body.
