Draft at the Great Nebraska Beer Festival. Dark brown color, tan head. Huge coffee aroma. Taste has burnt espresso. Not bad. jtclockwork (16581) - , New Jersey, USA - FEB 27, 2014
Bottle thanks to Beerman6686. Pours very dark brown/almost black with tan head. Nose and taste of burnt chocolate, smoke, burnt coffee, ashy chocolate and vanilla. Medium body. Not the best imperial stout I’ve had but it works for some reason. bhensonb (15194) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 12, 2012
Bomber from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours dark brown/black with a foamy tan head. Main aroma is chocolate but there is detectable burnt malt. Med body or better. It’s quite bitter. Probably from hop, but with the chocolate it’s much like baking chocolate. Rather unique IS. Ratman197 (14838) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - FEB 12, 2012

Bottle. Poured a black color with a large frothy brown head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted chocolate, caramel and alcohol aroma. Medium to heavy bittersweet roasted malt flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet and small alcohol bite finish of moderate to long duration. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a very good beer.

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. alexsdad06 (10428) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 2, 2013
22 oz. bottle via phaleslu. Pours dark brown in color with a medium plus sized dense khaki head. The aroma is roasted malts, dark chocolate, anise, herbal hops with a hint of char. The flavor has roasted malts, dark chocolate, anise, char, dark caramel herbal and earthy hops. Perhaps a hint of espresso. phaleslu (10264) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 14, 2012
22 oz. bottle from Randall’s. Nice to see a new local imperial stout. Pours a deep, mostly opaque dark brown with an initially very large, rocky, frothy tan head that leaves a lot of lacing in the glass. Aroma of bitter dark chocolate, deep, dark, and roasted malts, earthy hops, and cocoa. The flavor has the same amount of bitterness from super dark chocolate and earthy, citrusy hops, along with coffee and more roasted malts, and cocoa. Medium-bodied, with modest carbonation and a smooth, bitter mouthfeel. The body thins as it warms. Impressive first crack at an imperial stout with a lot of hop character. Reminds me a lot of Great Divide Yeti. b3shine (8873) - Indiana, USA - MAY 16, 2012
Bottle to snifter. Looks good; black with lacing. Smells and tastes decent; dry and roasty. Mouthfeel is average. Meh. Strykzone (7358) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - DEC 14, 2011
Sampled at an esbls tasting. A rich black pour. A smallish tan head stays. A roasty coffee nose. The flavor is big coffee with dark fruot and fudge. Hops are fairly big and seem to be European with some sulfur. This was nice. This would be wonderful aged in whiskey barrels.
