Thick and black as oil, this rich imperial stout is complex yet smooth. Rounded roastiness with flavor notes of coffee, chocolate and dark fruit dominate a intense explosion of flavor.

BlackForestCO (976) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - FEB 8, 2011
Bottle from miketd, thanks man. Poured a deep brown-black color with a moderate, tight tan head that faded to a thin layer and left some spotty lacing. Aroma of dark chocolate, nougat, espresso, a light roasted maltiness, a moderate dark fruitiness including light plum and fig, and even a touch of smoke. Smooth, sweet entry with some light hints of dark fruit (plum and dark cherry) that leads into a chocolate maltiness before giving way to a moderate roastiness that lingers lightly into the finish with more undertones of dark fruit that are paired with a soft smokiness that imparts a light dryness. Low carbonation and smooth, slick mouth feel that are offset somewhat by a light dryness on the finish. Overall, a really nicely crafted imperial stout where one aspect doesn’t really dominate the flavor, but a number of good characteristics combine to create an exceptionally smooth, well balanced beer.

yngwie (13194) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 1, 2014
Bottle, 22oz. An almost black one, clear looking and with a small, dense, beige head. Lots of molasses in the aroma, with dark chocolate, coffee and roasted hints. Alcohol notes. Lightly warming and full-bodied on the palate, with a nice carbonation level. Lots of molasses in the flavor, along with some chocolate and coffee and a touch of dark sugar sweetness and alcohol. Lasting sweet and molasses-ish finish. Sure a nice one, although probably a tad sweet. 140301
