From Bottle. Dark black pour with a thin, highly carbonated head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is of dark chocolate and coffee grounds, served with a slightly sweet oatmeal creaminess, and spiked with a splash of spiced rum. The body is a bit thinner than expected, especially for an imperial stout. Plenty of coffee, vanilla extract, and a dark tobacco finish of a maduro cigar. A bit sweet overall - I would have placed this in the sweet stout style if I had tasted this blind. An interesting taste nonetheless that I am grateful to have enjoyed. Thanks, Jay!

Boutip (4490) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 5, 2006
Bottle (courtesy of Jimbowood): Poured a deep black color stout with a big foamy dark brown head with good retention. Aroma of coffee and roasted malt with a sweet touch. Taste is well balance between coffee and roasted sweet caramel malt. Body is full and alcohol is not noticeable. Not the most complex of imperial stout but I could see this going very well as a session beer. I also appreciated the medium-level of alcohol and the well balance mix between coffee and sweet malt.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2009 Sampled at DLD 2006. Pours dark with a ticker brown head than on most beers of this strength. Deep coffee smell and taste (Duh!), but with the creaminess of oatmeal, too. A bit rough around the edges, but yes, a good breakfast beer when you intend to waste the day.

Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - MAY 1, 2006
in bottle, courtesy of Jimbowood. Nice, big, bold stout. The coffee is immediately present, and that gives way to a nice chocolate flavor. Very good.

I split a bottle of this with Naven last weekend. Not a huge stout fan, but I liked this quite a bit. Big thanks to whomever sent that out. You knew exactly what you were doing.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 1, 2006
Dense black, thick dark tan creamy head. Soft nose of milk chocolate, mild coffee and cream, with lesser tones of caramel and vanilla. Flavor up front was mild coffee and cream, chocolate, and faint vanilla. A light hop bitterness in the end helps keep the dark malt in check throughout. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, bittersweet finish. Was hoping for more pronounced coffee like the 5 Seasons Wired Stout. Very nice none the less...

Bottle thanks to jasonp: Pours to a dark brown, near black, body with a small light brown head that sticks atop the beer. The aroma is molasses, dark sugar, sweet plums, light coffee, prunes, and mild cereal. Taste is prunes, pear, plums, roasted caramel, light coffee, earthy caramel, and light cereal grains. Medium-full bodied, moderate carbonation, finishes with some prunes, light smoke, sweet oatmeal, and some light coffee.
