Roasty, earthy, charred aromas, some cocoa, dark roast coffee, and a hint of dried dark fruit. Black with a lasting minimal, light tan head. Dry, roasty, bitter, and with notes of black soil. Full bodied, hearty, and robust, leaving behind lingering roasty bitterness.

Poured from bottle to glass. Aroma is roasted malt, vanilla, chocolate, coffee, wood. Mouthfeel is nice with a full body and good carbonation. Taste is sweet initially with an astringent finish. Overall this is an absolutely fantastic brew!

Black, with a nice mocha head. Aroma of roast and caramel, chocolate, cream, and coffee. Taste rich and chocolaty, with a strong shot of espresso. Full body, with some chalk and ash. Nice roasty finish with a warming sensation in stomach. Very nice Imperial Stout.

UPDATED: MAR 5, 2014 Best Stout ever !!!...Excellent well balanced Imperial Stout, that I enjoy drinking more often than other great Imperial Stouts like Stone Russian, Founders, Bells Expedition, Ale Smith Speedway,...Siberian Night has slightly more hops than the rest of them, and tastes closest to Stone’s flavor than the others...it’s also the best price, at only $9.99 per 4 pk or $8.99 on sale....but it’s still the best tasting, which is really cool !....had it for the first time at their Thirsty Dog Brewery, where you can walk right into the brewery operation, right past the giant brew kettles, and sit at a bar in the middle of the factory...with about 15 beers on tap and a bar tender....you can drink and watch them working away brewing beer ...funny, the first time I walked in, the owner was sitting at the bar conducting business with clients, they all had their briefcases and laptops out, and all drinking beer...I sat next to them, and thought, what a cool way to make a good living....great Stout too....Uummm , life is good !

Pours black with a thick creamy head. Toasty malt on the noise with a hint of sweetness. Creamy mouth feel with a dry finish. Coffee and molasses flavors and a high ABV make this a imperial stout a keeper!

Bottle. Black with brown head. Cocoa, vanilla and a little licorice. Sweet flavour with lots of cocoa, chocolate, roasted malts and a burnt bitter finish. Nice, but not so impressive as I had hoped.
