Drake (10501) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - FEB 15, 2015
Northeast Bucket List Trip Beer #40. Keg at the brewpub. Near black with a thin creamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, dark fruits, vanilla, mild coffee. The taste is dark fruits, roasted malt, vanilla, chocolate. Medium bodied.

AirForceHops (4508) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 1, 2015
Draft. Great head retention on a pitch black liquid. Aroma is roasted grain, cocoa powder and light Godiva chocolate. The flavor follows with a nice level of darker chocolate, ashy roasted malt, mild tones of dark fruit( raisins, plums). The flavor is pretty nice but the body lacks the fullness that I want in the style. Slightly above average.

PapaSkeetSkeet (1000) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - JAN 25, 2015
Nitro tap. Black with a light-brown, ultra fine head that lingers around awhile, but once it’s gone it cannot be reinvigorated by any means. Aroma/flavor are toast, light coffee, some chocolate, touch of soy sauce and pine bitterness. Body is medium with a relatively restrained carbonation, oily-syrupy. Overall, this gives the impression of being a slightly dry imperial stout. I wish it had a fuller flavor, in keeping with the style.

Draft at the source. Dark brown color, light tan head. Aroma of dark cocoa. Taste is dark milk chocolate. Decent.

@ waterfire after salsa dancing. in the street downtown providence. Really thick and hoppy. flecks of hops on the bottom of the cup. better than the rating lets on. I’ll be getting a growler of this when chip is in town.

beerbill (3567) - Laurel, New York, USA - DEC 10, 2011
On draught at the brewpub. Arrived at the table black with a thin-moderate light brown head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. Pleasant aroma of chocolate and roast malt. The flavor is chocolate, light coffee, mild nuts and some roasted malt. Lightly sweet. Medium-full bodied. Enjoyable.

Lubiere (11148) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 6, 2011
A deep dark stout with a thin brown head. In aroma, espresso coffee, dark chocolate, a bit of ash. In mouth, a smooth sweet fruity chocolate with light coffee notes, not bad. On tap at Boston Beer Summit, Jan. 15 2011.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2011
Draught at the BrewPub: Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, and a hint of alcohol. Poured very dark brown/ruby in color with a medium-sized, creamy, dense, beige/brown head that lasted throughout. Clear. Not sparkling. Flavor is medium sweet. Tastes of roasted malt, sugar, slight vanilla, slight chocolate, and a hint of alcohol. Medium body. Slightly thin texture. Soft carbonation. Roasted malt, light vanilla, and sugar finish.

Alphadelic (1922) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 27, 2010
Woody plum and raisin aromas. Sweet fruity flavours in this syrupy black brew. Pruney a bit weird to be honest.
