COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This deliciously smooth Imperial Stout is brewed with the finest English malt, three types of dark malts, and some smoked malt to give it a hint of smokiness. It has a rich, complex flavor accentuated with American Cascade hops. We aged it for three months to make it incredibly smooth and drinkable. It’s also named after the former Emperor of the United States (look it up!)

Thanks to Orlgamecock for the pour. Pours a blackish red pour. Caramel malt, touch of smoke, musty aroma. Taste is spicy, earthy hops, caramel malt. No real balance, not impressed.

Lubiere (10139) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 6, 2011
A deep dark stout with a thick brown head. In aroma, smooth chocolate over expresso coffee. In mouth, a nice sweet chocolate with light hops, loads of warming alcohol, not bad. On tap at Boston Beer Summit, Jan. 15 2011.

Pours a deep brown with chocolate colored lacing. Aroma consists of coffee, chocolate, vanilla and burnt caramel. Flavor is somewhat bland, more bitter than sweet, with a slightly boozy finish.

phaleslu (6608) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 1, 2010
22 oz. bottle from a Beer Advocate trade I did about a year ago. 2009 bottle, though the date wasn’t stamped on the bottle. Pours a dark, opaque brown color with a small, creamy tan head. Aroma of chocolate malts, cream, lactose, light roast, a little smoke, dark fruits, and cardboard. Flavor of coffee, roasted malts, earth, ash, toast, medicine, and rust. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a roasty, earthy, almost rainwater-like mouthfeel. It’s thinner than I like my imperial stouts and the flavor was messy and off, but I did like the nose. The oddest thing was that this seemed like it was more like 2-3 years old than 1 year old.

Milk chocolate aroma, not great. The apparance is deep brown, light tan head, true to style. The beer is thin in body, but has an oily mouthfeel. Not great for an impy stout at all.

jkwood04 (4035) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 19, 2010
Sampled at American Craft Beer Fest 2010. Pours black with little head. Flavor of coffee and some slight hops notes. A dry finish and a little too thin on the palate. A decent beer, but not the best in its category.

Thanks to Exiled for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma is a mix of cocoa, soy and alcohol. The flavor is chocolate and burnt malt. I also get a little coffee but it is the chocolate and malt that dominate this beer. Medium mouthfeel and low carbonation. Not a bad imperial stout, but not as good as some others I have tried.

(22oz bottled Oct 09 thanks to Exiled) clearish ruby brown with decent off-white head that fades. Nose of celery, honeydew, crackers and cream. Taste of fudge, cream, semi-sweet chocolate, medium semi-dry body that finishes creamy.

Bottle thanks to exiled. Pours with a tan head over a deep brown body. Aroma of mocha, cocoa, vanilla, raisins, tar and licorice. Taste is mocha, ash, tobacco, earth and bitter. Light bubbles.
