Draft at Brouwers.

Pour is black with a deep brown head. The sweet fruity aroma of currents and asian pear is almost a little surprising for an imperial stout, but the flavor comes straight through with chocolate and chewy toffee, dates, plum wine, hints hints of licorice. Itís a very sweet beer with a sweet finish and warm mouthfeel - but itís a very nice beer through and through, but for me it was on 90% of what it was hyped up to be.

GABF. One of the favorites. Nice Dark pour with decent head. Lots of dark fruit and chocolate aromas. More on the flavor. Roasted malt and coffee too. Very good

Opaque black with a small tan head. This might shock everyone but it smelled like choclate, coffee, caramel, et al... The flavor was, shockingly, much the same. Some hot alcohol creeps in maiking things, ummm, more lively. Full bodied with an alcohol burn. Yet another Imperial Stout.

GABF 2005: poured black with a brown head. Milk, chocolate and coffee aroma. Coffee and chocolate dominate the flavor with a touch of vanilla. Good beer that is very potent.

GABF 2005. The first beer at the festival. My notes were very similar to Aubreyís. It had a really nice aroma, which is hard considering those little glasses and one ounce pours. The mouthfeel was tremendous and chewy. It was not destroyed by excessive hops, but nicely balanced. It was very vinous and intensely fruity, with raisin, charred plum, chocolate and roast flavors. Went back for seconds three or four times.

On tap, and from a growler into an English Pint. Pours a completely thick and dark blackish tan with very little head, but what is there is tannish as well. Aroma is heavy towards the roasted malt and coffee notes while being carmalized as well. Itís actually somewhat medium bodied, but the flavor is very heavy in coffee, chocolate, roastiness, and molasses. I pick up a hint of sweetness (cherries I think) towards the finish before the alcohol kicks in surrounded by coffee. I fall in love with everything from Walking Man that touches my tongue. I will definitely drink this one anytime I have the chance to!

Good amount of smoke and toasted marshmallows. Not sweet or sticky at all. Notes of raisin, toasted marshmallow, alcohol, figs, cream, some coffee, and some milk chocolate. Very well done.

How did I know Walking Man was going to make this beer rock? GABF 2004. Slightly astringint aroma, but not detracting believe it or not. Great head on this. Palate is soft, malty and quite nice. Taste of vanilla, oak, and coffee bean. Finish is bitter from the good hopping that is so needed in and IS. Walking Man rules!

GABF í05. Black body. Bourbon, boozy aroma over chocolate malt. The flavor improves with teh booze going away and being replaced by sweet bourbon, coffee and chocolate. Some alcohol in the finish along with sweet malt and coffee bitteness.

Growler compliments of Indiana_Red. Dark, dark color with a powerful growing flavor. You can definitely sense the alcohol in this beauty. Flavors of dark chocolate and prunes followed by some burnt notes and a little burn. The aroma is sweet and inviting. The aftertaste leaves a pleasant mild choco flavor on the tongue tempting you to go back for another sip. Thanks a bunch Indiana_Red for driving safely while tired to get this brew back to Boise!
