COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Full of deep,rich chocolate flavor with a splendid sweet wine-like backbone...don't worrywe didn't forget the hops.

Black color with a medium head. Aroma of slightly burnt malt. The taste is very heavy on the bitter roasts, which seem to dominate over whatever hops were thrown in here. Itís tasty enough, but it just strikes me as heavy on the malt, without much else.

Solid, unsoluble black, íneath a roasted tan head. Classic picture of an Imperial Stout. Very inviting. Aroma brims with vitality, rich and roasty, with flavors of carob, anise, mollases, espresso and cocoa vying for their place in the nose. Itís a luscious blend, full and heady. Taste: big in the mouth as well, full and pervasive on the palate. Solid as any real IS worth the name should be, but very mellow as well. Alcoholic strength doesnít seem an issue, not until you near the end of the glass. The rich flavors indicated in the nose come back in the taste, a mellifluous melange of dark and delightful tints, tinges, and tastes. A cavern of delights, a full well bringing forth deliciousness. Tasty, tasty, this, a devilishly delicious stout that makes me commit the unlikely sin of wishing it were colder right now, to enjoy this warm and wonderful brew better. The first non-bourbon/whiskey-fied Imperial Stout Iíve yet tasted at Town Halll, not counting the short-lived version they tapped for Anniversary Week 2005, which was the Czar Jack before the Jack. Iíd like to see a lot more of this. As big and bold as this beer is, the growler will not last the night. Itís that tasty and my will power is that weak.

On tap at Winterfest 2006. No one else try this??? No mistaking this for anything but an Impy Stout as there was a fine blend of hops,dark chocolate and coffee.
