A dark rich creamy ale. This is our version of this classic stout style. With its dense black color and velvety texture, our stout's flavor hints of chocolate liquorice and coffee. This ale is truly a meal in a glass.

22oz Bottle, purchqsed from the Wine Thief - New Haven, CT and enjoyed from a plastic Amtrak cup with ice. Steel railings humming, this noses warm and a little bit fruity. On the palate this holds a mix of fresh toasted bread and some sweet grapes. Im trying to enjoy this beer as though I were living in the UK in the 50s. Its so hard to hold an old-style, nuanced lower gravity stout like this to all the brash, overly strong American renditions. This is subtle, hopped with Goldings, and a gracious old timey beast. If we split Imperial Stout into American and English, this would rock the latter category and thus Im scoring it highly.

A very good imperial stout. Pours a beautiful deep red/black with a tan head. Smells of licorice, cherries and plums. Taste is very creamy, with milk, licorice, spices, cinnamon and plums with a smooth finish. Quite good.

PhatB420 (840) - Pittsfield, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 21, 2015
Bomber into glass, 3.95 at Georges, best by 9/22/15, OK. Pours a muddled dark black with brown hues, sediment floating and journeying along. Caramel head, fluffed and medium, light toffee lacing. Roasty aroma of chocolate, grain, black malts, nuts, coffee, autumn leaves. Taste of roasted nuts, dry chocolate, booze, dark fruit explosion. Creamy on the pallate, smooth going down. Lack of carbonation hinders it though. Might be too far gone in time. Still nice.

Une bire bue autour dun feu avec Pete et Ruth. Un liquide brun qui tombe dans mon verre sans relle viscosit. Imprial stout ou stout robuste? Ceci dit, beau col mousseux. Au nez malts rtis, caramel fonc, effluves de raisins, touche fruite similaire la rglisse ou lanis, cest selon. Impression de noix. Le got montre du rti, du cacao, des noix et des fleurs dalcool. En bouche, une dmonstration corporelle crmeuse et des bulles trs peu agites. Une finale peu mmorable, sans grande dfinition mais quand mme sans sucre et mme goteuse en alcool un peu chocolat.

DiarmaidBHK (4269) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 7, 2015
Bottle from western Massachusetts gas station. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Leaves a lot of lacing in the glass. Has a bit of roasted malt on the nose. Fairly smooth on the tongue with a slight hint of sweetness. Hides its alcohol well though at 8.5 its kind of on the thin end for the style. Its quaffable and drinkable but not particularly memorable.

GIJOE (1095) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - FEB 7, 2015
Pours black with a thick, creamy, tan head that stays long. Thick, sticky lacing. Nose is roasted grain with notes of chocolate. Taste is on the sweet side up front, but theres a very nice dark-chocolate bitterness after. Lingers long. Full body. Moderate carbonation. Very nice brew.
