MotherBrother (695) - Aalborg, DENMARK - AUG 22, 2013
Draft @ The Great Taste. Pour is black, with a small, dense, frothy and light-mocha head.. Aroma has a lot of chocolate, slight coffee, slight roasted malts and some hoppy notes.. Actually a lot is going on in this one. (Also a little booze in here) The taste is quite sweet, with faint roasted bitter notes.. Semi-full bodied with a semi-oily texture and a semi-flat carbonation.. Quite smooth..

phaleslu (6555) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 19, 2013
Draft pour at GTMW 2013. Pours a deep, mostly opaque brown with a small tan head. Notes of chocolate, earth, fudge, molasses, and a solid hop presence throughout. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a chocolaty mouthfeel. Base beer for Czar Jack? Interesting; the hops don’t come through in the barrel treatment like this, or at all. I prefer the barrel-aged one for sure, though this is a nice imperial stout overall.
