One of my favorite styles and they did it very well. The alcohol doesn’t push over 10% like many imperial stouts, so you get all the roasted coffee taste without getting the rough medicinal aftertaste. It doesn’t have the complexity that everyone expects from an imperial stout, but it is pretty much my favorite beer flavors done just right. If there are a dozen things on tap at ZwanzigZ I would probably still pick this one every time, it’s so good.

Bottle at America Strikes Back, Ulfborg. Pours cloudy very dark brown with airy tan head. Clear aroma of malt and coffee, with notes of chocolate. Bitter, roasty onset, giving way to sweet notes of malt, coffee and chocolate. Roasty and sweetish aftertaste, with hints of cofee beans. Warming alcohol presence. Good.

phaleslu (6517) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 20, 2014
Growler shared by b3shine- thanks again, Beau! Pours a deep brown color with a small khaki head. Aroma of roasted and toasted malts, chocolate, nuts, molasses, and dust - has a very dry-roasted kind of character to it. The same can be said for the flavor. Light-medium bodied, with a smooth, roasty mouthfeel and low-to-moderate carbonation. Simple imperial stout that has lent itself well to experimentation.

DrSilverworm (6421) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 17, 2014
1 liter fliptop growler, shared by b3shine. 7.5%, from what he says. Very dark brown red, near black color. Thin bubbly tan head, plenty dots of lace. Some roast, coffee in the nose. Big coffee in the flavor. Dark chocolate. Some good bitter earthy hop flair. Dark chocolate. Some good bitter earthy hop flavor. Nice bigger bitter taste, minimal sweet. Impressively assertive, big taste, especially for the 7.5%. Drinks like a slightly lighter bodied RIS. Medium to bigger body. Good chewy texture, though. Smooth, lighter carbonation, lightly dry finish. Very tasty, lighter bodied but full flavored imperial stout.

Draft to taster at ZwanzigZ. Looks good; black with foamy tan head that dissipates into sticky lacing. Smells solid; dark malt and chocolate. Tastes like it smells with a bit of roast. Solid on the palate. A little thin, but good nonetheless.

It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter, the bitterness lingering into the finish. Medium to full body, velvety texture, moderate carbonation. Bitter coffee/chocolate combination in taste. Good beer.
