750ml corked n’ caged bottle via trade. Dark brown in color with a small tan head sitting on top. Roasty aroma with big dark chocolate, anise, and dark fruits. The flavor is big n’ rich, like the country group that sings "Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy" among other classic tunes, with roast, toasted oak, semisweet chocolate, and dark fruit. Medium bodied and smooth with some mild tannins on the mouthfeel. A damn solid imperial porter. Not bad from the land of the Mormons.

750ml bottle. Pours pitch black with a big creamy tan head. Really nice lacing and retention. Aroma is roasted chocolate malts, coffee and sweet dark fruits, raisins especially. Also lots of licorice, vanilla and oak. But as it warms, the chocolate comes out even more. Taste is even better than the nose and very complex. Tons of chocolate malts, vanilla and booze soaked overripe fruits. The licorice really comes out as well and the finish is smooth but with some toasted oak. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth, soft carbonation. Really creamy and the ABV is really well hidden. Overall, I loved this beer. Tons of things going on with fruit, roasted malts, chocolate and oak barrels. Fantastic stuff.

750mL bottle pours black with huge tan head. Aroma has roasted characters, vanilla, oak, licorice, chocolate and earthy. Taste is very sweet with bittersweet chocolate, roasted flavors, and molasses. Alcohol very present lots going on here maybe too much.

Bottle - huge thanks to Alex for helping with a rate Utah tick...A dark brown pour, only the slightest hint away from being black with a nice tan head. Ok retention and lacing...Aroma of dark sugars (molasses), a little roast, vanilla, and spices....Taste is really nice and so drinkable at 13.2%. Vanilla, dark fruits and spice come through. The beer is way to watery for a stout but Im going to drink it anyway. A beer that’s easy to drink and can you get going quick, worth trying for the state tick and to get your drunk quick.

JoeMcPhee (8817) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 26, 2011
Black pour with a tight, dark brown head. Pours like motor oil. The nose is incredibly intense. Loads of heavy tarry roast, salty/savoury licorice along with some bittersweet chocolate. Heavy oaky character on the back (although it’s not particularly bourbony). Rich and thick with a lot of complexity. As it warms up there is a lot of vanilla that pops up. Intense and a little bit ashy as well. There is a little bit of light smoke as well. Surprisingly nice.

750ml Bomber – Uinta Brewing
Dark brown in color, clear with a thin tan head. Big malt and chocolate aroma along with a light alcohol. Big malty brew this has great flavors strong chocolate and coffee. Big beer flavor this warms up well and more aroma and flavor. Big strong beer also so watch yourself.

madvike (3059) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 21, 2011
Bottle shared by levifunk - Pours black as hell, with a very small tan head. Roasty on the nose, with nutty toffee. Taste is burnt roast, with maltiness that lasts all the way through the finish, along with the light toffee sweetness. Smooth and pretty rich.

Arayaga2 (1876) - portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 16, 2011
Dark brown black with a half cm of cocoa colored head. Aroma is rich chocolate and figs. Taste is the same, but much richer, with slightly acidic, with alcohol warming into the finish. Alcohol is not otherwise overbearing in any way. $10/750
