Poured oily black with a deep caramel head that laced well. 10 oz goblet, smelled of deep chocolate and faint coffee, tasted of lots of chocolate with a sweet malt backbone that bittered a bit at the end. Excellent creamy mouthfeel.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Rating #300 needs a solid beer - Olí Jack Frost works! TAP: dark brown/black pour, tan head. Big olí Russian Impy Stout look in my glass. Roasted coffee and chocolate on the nose, more on taste + some sweetness (dark fruit?). Creamy mouthfeel.

On tap at Town Hall in August 2009. Pours a deep, deep black--one through which no light escapes. The head is quite large given the style. Good lacing. The smell is that of chocolate, plenty of roasted malt, a little bit of vanilla, and some anise to round it out. The taste is much the same with a little bit of hop bitterness and coffee. The mouthfeel is fairly full and quite creamy. This is very drinkable for the style and would love to be able to age some of this myself. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 10-01-2009

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.

Looks like an imperial stout ought to; black, low carbonation, and a light, airy khaki colored head. It has an initial aroma of Sammy Smithís imperial. The first flavor is soy sauce, but not as much as their czar jack. There is also a lot of coffee, almost making this a coffee stout. It is probably the dryest imperial stout I have had, so dry that it is hard to drink a lot of it. Fairly thick.

GABF 2011. Pitch black with a light tan frothy head. Aroma of roasty chocolate malt and some candy sweetness. Flavor is big, rich. Chocolaty and roasty with a coffee tone in there too. Big body complimented the high ABV, made this a nice sipper. What a find!

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 9, 2011
Draft at GABF. Pours a deep black with brown at the edges and a dark brown head. Nose is cocoa, faint vanilla and molasses. Also pick up some prune notes as well as big roast. On tasting, itís on the sweeter side, touch fruity and then the cocoa takes over. Medium-full body. Finish is dry enough, booze is held back. Decent.

Growler shared by largadeer on BA, which came from mothman on BA. Pours pitch black with a thick tan head fading to a foam layer with good lacing. Aroma is nice and roasty with coffee and dark chocolate. Some hops noticeable. Fairly intense. Flavor is a little rough but great. Very roasty and chocolatey with bitter coffee and piney hops. Just a little unbalanced. Medium-full body with lots of hop oils and a long finish. Really solid stuff overall. Not quite as good as the -bal aged version, but great nonetheless.
