Bottle to goblet Loads of milk, rancid milk, diacetal. I can’t imagine that this is supposed to be like this. Black...tan head. Disgusting curdled milk, some coffee/chocolate.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours black with a tan head. Taste roasted malt, dark chocolate, vanilla. I thought this was good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I think this is the one Chris form beer temple was dissing in his episode. I think it is really nice, not too spicy, richly integrated stout flavors. Don’t hate on this cause its not abraxas.

Bottle and served in snifter: Pours a deep brown with an initial nice frothy tan head and spotty lace. Solid roast, char, cocoa, coffee, moderate pine, slight fig and tobacco along with a touch of Diacetyl (but not troublesome at least for me). Shorter finish than expected and not overly complicated. Ashy prickly mouth feel. Still it is more than drinkable... A Kia in an Aston Martin world.

This stout is well rounded and full bodied. It has a good flavor that will definitely convert you to the dark side.

Dark pour with an immense head leaving lots of tiny bubbles of lacing. Fades somewhat quicker than I anticipated. Classic impy aroma of roast, dark chocolate, and coffee. Lots of dark chocolate and burnt roast in the flavor. Unfortunately, it also disappears rather fast, especially for an impy. Only a little bitterness lingers on the tongue after about a minute. A Russian Imperial for beginners. With so many great impy stouts out there, this decent brew just can’t hold up to the upper tier.

Pours a deep black with a creamy lacing tan head. Aroma of whiskey, vanilla, oak and chocolate. Flavor of oak, vanilla, dark fruits, nuts and bourbon.

EyeAmBaldman (461) - Illinois, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Bomber from Wine and Cheese in St. Louis. Pours nearly black with a thick caramel head. Aroma is fairly bland actually. Mostly just alcohol. Full mouth feel with the taste of malt and dark chocolate. Has a surprising sweetness on the back end I didn’t expect. Previously had it on tap at the Lupulin Festival. Pretty good stuff.

I have had this beer several times before, but this is the first time I have had it on tap. Great roasty/sweet scent, jet black with very small amount of foam, bourbon sweetness and slight hop bitterness in the flavor, good oily palate. Give this beer a try. In the hard to get noticed world of Imperial Stouts, this one has carved out an interesting niche.

Hopefully this was a bad bottle from the brewery. Doing a beer tasting at a friends and all 4 glasses just bubbled - foamed out of control. To make matters worse it tasted so bad that all 4 of us dumped it down the drain. All 7 or 8 other beers we had were just fine.
