Draft at source. In Miami. Nose is huge in fudge, deep chocolate and cocoa. Light tobacco. Really nice nose. Taste follows with a ton of fudge and light coffee. I really dig this.

This is definitely a good one for fans of big stouts. It’s rich, sweet and roasty with lots of cherry and chocolate flavor. It is not too sticky sweet but still very full bodied with mild carbonation. I am not a huge fan of this style but this one does get about everything right.

Bardzo dobre piwo. Brakuje mu trochę gęstości, ciężkości i ciała, jednak w smaku odznacza się bardzo dobrą kawowością, czekoladowością. Obecne też nuty winne.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing.
Body is dark brown to black.
Aroma is heavily malty (CHOCOLATE SYRUP, chocolate cookie, roasted grain), with a note of vanilla.
Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Medium to full body, syrupy texture, soft carbonation, lightly alcoholic.
A chocolate bomb that’s ridiculously syrupy and cloying, almost gag-reflex-inducing. Couldn’t take more than a few sips.

Tap at the brewpub. Dark pour. Aroma and flavor of anise, chocolate and what seemed to me like cocoa nibs. Body was lighter for an imperial stout. Not the most complex imperial stout, but I still liked it.

A dark body some head. Generous pour and good price point. (bonus one point) Tasty sweet roasty, but more on the nice malty side that I enjoy in imperial stouts. Nice beer. abv well masked.
