I don't know how anyone can give this a low rating unless they didn't read the description. Poured from a can into a tulip: Pours black with a thin khaki head. Aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate, pine, earth, and licorice. Taste is very roasty, dark dry cocoa, pine resin. Really hop forward, this is very close to being a black IPA. Very little booze present. It's not a typical Imperial Stout, but it's fantastic.

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2017 Opaque black with a medium tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Floral, piney hops, roasted malts, chocolate.

Can from the brewery. Dark brown pour with a mocha head. Pretty darn hop forward stout, heavily roasted malts, dark chocolate, dry, bitter and lightly sweet. Moderate carbonation and full body, dries out nicely, finishes with burnt leather malts.

Refrigerated 16 oz. aluminum can poured into a glass. Aroma is chocolate, medium body, medium carbonation, and thick small bubble lacing. Taste is dark super dry chocolate and strong herbal hops.

Black color with generous brown head. Strong aroma of roasted malts, boutique coffee. Dry and smooth mouthfeel; extreme character of heavily roasted malts, even malt sourness, so the end is rather unpleasant.
Unbalanced, chaotic, total lack of elegance.

Can from Austin, Thanks Brother (in-law). Pours black as the ace of spades with beautiful beige head full of different sized bubbles. Very strange, but cool. Aroma is black malt, mild non-malted barley, coffee, roasted chicory, and cereal. First sip is similar with with a sweet cold brewed coffee flavor. Finish is mild coffee bitterness. Very nice beer!

Can shared by a friend. Darkest brown pour with a thick tan head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, licorice, roast and earthy hops. Malt and rich chocolate flavor up front, transitioning to licorice before a finishing with a mouthful of grassy hops.

Ok. I'm not a 'gusher' of positivity. I like good beer. I like IPA's. Double please. Make it a NEIPA and we are going to be friends. But... at the end of the evening, I want a 'tongue hug'. I Love You Beer. And the way you (beer) respond is with a rich, bitter/sweet Imperial Stout! Sure I'd love it if it was in an 8 oz container... but yum. Yum! I'll stay up late to finish the 2nd 'half' Life is good. This is proof. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Canette fraîche d’une dizaine de jours. Merci à P-L! Robe noire opaque et lisse surmontée d’un col de mousse brunâtre et plutôt rocailleux. Arômes de grains de café noirs, chocolat noir aux noisettes, houblons résineux aux effluves d’agrumes citronnés frais, malt grillé séché, concentré d’orange. En bouche, malt grillé, café et agrumes se partagent la pôle. Du chocolat noir arrive ensuite pour se mêler aux agrumes. Ces derniers s’étirent longuement vers une finale résineuse et sèche, richement alimentée par les houblons et de la matière grillée. Très forte amertume au palais. Texture onctueuse et riche, corps moyen. Beaucoup plus une black ipa robuste qu’un imperial stout américain. Mais bon, si on est pas du genre à s’attarder sur les futilités des styles, c’est amplement réussi.
