Moderate aroma of coffee and dark fruit, alcohol. Dark brown w tan head, foamy. Legs. Flavor is roast coffee with some dark chocolate cherry. Slightly hints of smoke. Alcohol and earthiness. Thick body w some creaminess, low to moderate carb, warming. Worth it.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2020 Pours obsidian with a dark khaki head. Smells of leather and dried fruit. Tastes of plumb and cocoa nibs. Some honey sweetness and not overwhelming bourbon booziness. Great luxurious imperial stout. mike67 (1587) - , New Jersey, USA - DEC 30, 2019

Body is full, creamy and smooth. Taste is of nutty, toasted malt, coffee, chocolate, brown sugar, dark fruit, spices and herbal hops. Finish is long and very bitter. Great brew. bigcat03 (478) - Columbus, Nebraska, USA - DEC 29, 2019
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2019 Ten year bottle poured into a globe glass. Black hue with no head. Aroma is licorice, dark fruit, cocoa, and booze. Initial taste is cocoa, dark chocolate, roasted malt, dark fruit. Fades to roasted chocolate malt. Thick, oily body. Incredibly light carbonation (not surprising with the cellar age). I reviewed this a LONG time ago... But for some reason it isn't here now. Oh well. This cellars really well. mmmbeer (1485) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 9, 2019
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2019 12 oz bottle from mix pack served in a shaker- poured a 2 year old/ 50 k mile used motor oil black color, one finger foamy brown head formed and lasted while I typed this out with one hand. Aroma is a heavy roasted malt, alcohol, and winter. Hits the mouth with a wide body, malt is strong and heavily roasted, alcohol rush comes in the middle but that’s fine by me, finish lasts and refuses to quit. Yum. deyholla (16646) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 8, 2019
