Backlog, Bottle split with Pat in 2010. Pours a deep brown color with 2 finger head. Aroma and flavor of weird grain, off chocolate or coffee, malt, and poop. Body was thin. No thanks on this one

UPDATED: NOV 11, 2015 Nice beer. Touch of fruity after taste. Fig, date. Muddy brown color. The 10% abv is well hidden.

katrinaez (2250) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 1, 2015 Rich cocoa scent. Deep black color. A very malty and slight rye flavor. Hops come out at the very end. Bottle Tap - watery at first light considering it’s imperial and a high abv. The end is where you get the flavors. Had a coffee aroma. Only a 3 for tap.

A beer that tastes better than it smells. Black chocolate body. Taste is bittersweet dark chocolate. Better as it warms. Rich, hops in the long finish.

Bottle. Pours black with a generous head. Aroma of cocoa sweetness, sweet milk cream, slight coffee. Taste has a hop backbone with nice smooth roasty flavors and chocolate. Heavy bodied. Average carbonation. Creamy texture. Pretty good.

trapped (3614) - New York, TURKEY - JUN 20, 2014
Bottle. Dark brown with tan spongy head, caramel aroma, low carbonation, roasted malt-caramel taste, long finish with roasted malt aftertaste. Good example of an imperial stout.
