Poured from a bottle by the man himself. Black with a tan head. Carbonation is light, but oh it doesnt matter. Chocolate, asphalt, molasses, ash, light coffee, bourbon, apple brandy...wow what an aroma. Flavor is just insanely wonderful. Apple brandy barrels are a neck ahead of th ebourbon...but you get both flavors that meld with chocolate, molasses, prunes, tar and espresso. Just a flavor bomb. Amazing. right up there with the best CCB beer to day. Bravo!

This was a fantastic beer. I could not imagine it being any better. Pours pitch black with no head. I love the complexity of this beer, my palate was going crazy with everything going on with this. I can’t wait to try my second bottle once it ages a little more.

750ml Bottle The best imperial stout I have ever had, PERIOD. poured pitch black with almost no head to speak of, from low carbonation. Aroma is just amazing, chocolate roasted grain light caramel and vanilla; with tantalizing notes of booze from the barrels. Taste doesn’t disappoint, same notes with a perfect blending of bourbon and brandy. The low carbonation actually adds to the experience rather than detracts.

Bottle. Poured pitch black, oily. Nose was huge bourbon, smoke, coffee, dark chocolate, earth. Flavor was thick roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, hints of smoke, big smooth bourbon and brandy, warming booze. This is truly a treat.

UPDATED: MAY 15, 2011 A big tip of the cap to Hopscotch for sharin’ this beast. A bubble-less oil slick of concentrated delight. Doing what Cigar City does best, this complex warlock’s brew has more sacrificial ingredients than the La Brea tar pits! I’m serious, maybe only Dark Lord can compare to the complexity behind the Marshal’s label. Like any sailor entranced by the sweet songs of the Siren, the notes you hear will be specific to you. That being said, I tasted smooth delicious chocolate, molasses, brandy, oak, bourbon, and carmel. A real stunner....

UPDATED: APR 17, 2011 Pours a jet black with no head. Aroma is chocalate bourbon, roasted malts and nuts. Taste is perfect. Bourbon is strong with chocalate and coffee. Brandy notes are also there. Palate is awesome we’ll balanced and great warming ability. Overall this beer is almost perfect
