Sampled from 22oz bottle. Poured a back color with a tan head. Aroma was roasted and bitter dark malts. Flavor was the same roasted character with notes of coffee. craftycarl21 (2338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 7, 2011
Black pour with a tan head, Earth, cream, and roasty bitterness are the main components of the aroma; nice, but uninspiring. The flavor brings more to the table, with roast balanced with caramel sweetness and a bitter, charred, chalky finish. Nice, but not excellent. phaleslu (10454) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 3, 2011
22 oz. bottle shared by bsuedekum at the STLHops Pinball Party. Thanks, Blake! Pours a cloudy brown color with a small beige head. Aroma of chocolate, cola, sweet and roasty malts, nuts, fudge, and a hint of tobacco. Flavor of chocolate, roasted and toasted malts, coffee, earth, and cocoa beans. Medium-bodied, with a malty, sweet mouthfeel and mellow carbonation. Solid imperial stout. sherm1016 (1274) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 15, 2011
22oz bottle. Pours a jet black color with a tan head and some lacing. Aroma is roasty, coffee, chocolate. Heavy on the palate with soft, creamy carbonation. Flavor is sweet up front, malty, roasty, chocolate, a little alcohol, with a clean bitter coffee finish. This is a big stout, but for me it is very drinkable.

Bomber poured into my chalice style glass- huge roasted aroma- so inviting. Appearance is perfect, dark brown/black, big brown one finger froth head. Taste is so wonderfully balanced; chocolate toffee with candied or roasted oats. So delicious and the palate is creamy, chewy and thick. Me Gusta!

On tap @ Pizza Port OB. This brew is super nice. Syrupy, sweet, molasses, malt, and licorice on the nose and flavor. There was also some oat on the nose, and dark chocolate on the flavor. Definitely sweet, but pretty well-balanced and had an awesome thick palate on it. italianjohn (3186) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 11, 2011
Black pour thin off white beige head and striped sticky lacing .... aroma is of roasted coffee and chocolatey ..... taste is of bittersweet chocolate, caramel malts and bitter roasted coffee with a bitter hop and roasted dry warming finish ... mouthfeel is thick, oily and smooth ... nice oatmeal imperial GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - AUG 25, 2011
Pours as it should with the color of a midnight sky. Throws off a pancake like head that slowly recedes like concert goers after a Van Halen gig. Very mild aromatics exposing it’s weak side. Medium full nectar with abundant carbonation creating a cotton like texture. Heavily roasted coffee beans are ground down, throw in bitter cocoa, I mean bitter and mild touch of sweetness. This brew is slightly abrasive like an abrupt awareness that a yeti is creeping up on your campsite to steal your jerky. This brew evokes adjectives like strong, bold, unyielding, mysterious, penetrating, smothering, despondent, unfair trial, Davy Jones locker, punish, brutality, scorn, etc..... you get the picture, don’t you? iugrad93 (265) - Indiana, USA - AUG 18, 2011
Black pour, thick tan head, above avg lacing. Aromas of coffee, chocolate, notes of citrus. Taste sweet with roasted bitterness. Smooth and fairly creamy. Initial carbonation is lively then quickly levels off to suit the style. Overall, this is a nice tasting stout, but nothing really stands out. Its a solid brew and one I would have again. anders37 (26824) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 10, 2011
