Drjohnrock (758) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 25, 2016
Draft sampler at Capitol Hill location on July 11, 2009. Very dark black color thats maybe a slight bit darker than this brewerys Prohibition Porter, intense aroma that favors the alcohol, nice rich sweet flavor with good balancing bitterness and a licorice note. This was the best of the five beer sampler flight I had.

From notes - one of first beers I rated, not a good idea to pick such a strong style, may need to revisit it.

Blairgus (4369) - California, USA - NOV 21, 2013
21 nov 2013, tap at Capitol City Brewing. Black. Nose is delicious sweet coffee aroma-coffee with demarara sugar. Full body, creamy, and mildly fizzy. Really tastes of sweetened, cold black coffee. Pretty tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Huhzubendah (3650) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 7, 2012
On draft at Capitol City Brewing Co. in Virginia. The beer is dark brown, approaching black, with a fingers width of beige head. The aroma brings coffee, chocolate, and roast, respectively. Nicely done. Coffee leads the way, though chocolate and roast notes are omnipresent. Medium bodied with appropriate carbonation. Alcohol is masked quite well by the bold coffee flavors. A solid beer. I would have this again. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 01-29-2012

VT (2527) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 29, 2012
On tap at brewpub. Pitch black with a short-lasting beige head. Tastes slightly roasted, coffee, milk chocolate and a touch of bourbon. Coffee bitterness and alcohol in the finish, notes of ash. Watery. Not a legendary imperial stout.

I really enjoyed this stout. A black pour with a brown head. Strong aroma of chocolate, coffee and caramel. Medium-heavy body with lots of dark fruit and chocolate upfront then coffee and alcohol. Really good.

magsinva (1197) - Virginia, USA - MAY 14, 2011
Tap at the DC location - served in an overflowing goblet, khaki head and very dark. Assaults you with the coffee, but has a nice creamy mouth feel. Very drinkable.
