From a growler obtained at the brewery. The pour is deep black with little to no head. But the server told me it would be low in carbonation. The aroma is of dark malts, some dark fruits, yeast, and sweetness. No chocolate or coffee that I picked up. The body is a little less than medium but it is very smooth. Sweet taste with low bitterness. Alcohol very-well integrated. It would be easy to over indulge.

Bottle shared with the group (6/2011, notes). Pours brown in color with a small off white head with floaties. The aroma had roasted malts, chocolate and some coffee. The flavor had roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, brown sugar and a strange acidity that distracted. A bit thin for an Imperial stout.

Dégustée en fût au Farmhouse Tap & Grill à Burlington, VT. De couleur noire et opaque. Nez de grains de malt rôtis, léger de chocolat noir avec des notes de café ainsi que des traces de petits fruits foncés et de caramel. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture aux notes crémeuses. Léger goût de chocolat noir avec des petites notes fruitées (petits fruits foncés) ainsi que des traces de réglisse noire et de chocolat au lait (faibles traces lactiques) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute rapidement un goût de malt rôti avec des notes de caramel brûlé puis en finale l’on retrouve un léger goût de café avec des notes de houblon herbeux et quelques traces d’alcool. Post-goût moyen-long et aux notes sèches, légèrement amer de rôti, léger de chocolat noir avec des notes de café et de houblon herbeux. (12 mai 2013)

I’ve been sitting on this for 8 months or so. The aroma is pure chocolate and dark roast coffee. The taste is datk espresso and cocoa rounded out by a healthy dose of hops. For a plain imp stout, this is pretty nice.

Dark brown. To black. No head. Smell bit of smoked as caramel malts. Some dark malts but weak. No scent at all. Pretty weak. Taste - some sweet cane syrup. Some bit of cinnamon and barley flakes. Minor bit of hops. Roasted malts. Earthy and a small hint of dark fruits. 50/50 carbonation. Slick mouthfeel. Medium to light body. Lingering smokiness.

Pours a solid dark brown with faint garnet highlights when held to light. Smallish tan head shows decent retention with minimal lace. Smells of coffee and roast with a hint of caramel. Smells nice, but has a dry Irish kind of feel to it. Taste is roasty and coffee with a bit of butterscotch and some mild dark fruits and licorice in the finish. Creamy smooth mouthfeel, moderate level of carbonation with a medium body. This is a fairly tasty beer, but its a stretch to call this an Imperial Stout. Foreign Extra or American stout would have scored much higher.

Thanks Tucker for sending this one out . Brownish black in color with a small tan head. Not a ton of aromas off the top. Medium bodied beer. Understated stout flavors of chocolate, coffee, and toasty malt. Almost a blend of an IRS and sweet stout. Not too bad of a beer.
