Dark brown with brown hue, very little light brown head. Malty chocolate scent. Thin watery mouthfeel, low carbonation, smooth finish. Smokey chicory bitter and dark fruit taste. Flavor good but a bit watery and astringent. fattybladdy (628) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - SEP 13, 2013
Tap @ Beer Exchange. Black pour. Taste of dark chocolate and black licorice. Pretty good imperial stout. alesales (10) - Colorado, USA - SEP 4, 2013
Whew! This is a big delicious beer! It pours jet black with a dark brown head. Aroma is coffee, Mocha, dark Chocolate. Mouth feel is sticky and velvety. Taste is awesome, roasted malt, coffee, and dark chocolate. Clocking in a 10%ABV this beer is definitely a sipper, but a sipper that you cannot put down!

On draft at Isaacs. Nice dark, deep brown pour with reddish hue. Nice roast, coffee, and chocolate taste.
A tad thin in the body. Milky finish. Good.

Bottle. Pours an inky black body with a small thin fizzy dark brown head that faded to a few small bubbles. The nose is really chocolaty and decadent with some rich roasted malt, sweetness, and some moderate alcohol notes. The flavor is a little too sweet for my tastes, the burnt caramel and chocolate notes come on a little too heavy and strong. Add in the effect of the heat from the 10% ABV and you don’t exactly get a very easy drinking beer. Finishes with a bit of burnt roasted malt, coffee, and alcohol. Medium bodied, a bit sticky and clingy, especially on the finish. It’s a decent beer, but not something that I’m going to treasure drinking a full bomber’s worth.

Draft at craft ale house. Pours pitch black with a medium sized brown head. This looks like a float. Gorgeous. The aroma is Starbucks style. Big mocha notes, light roast, a lot of lactose. The taste has a big roasty kick up front, a huge coffee bean run, sweet finish. Great sticky palate. Awesome. Niko100 (2913) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 19, 2013
