What an imp stout! Dark black pour, reddish cream head that sticks to the glass like glue. Aroma is rich chocolate, dark fruit, booze, wood, and vanilla. Taste is chocolate fudge, berries, dank hops, vanilla, oak, and char. Thick velvety mouth feel. This is one delicious stout. A+

UPDATED: NOV 24, 2012 Bottle in Tampa (fresh bottle-nice holiday). I am not a stout drinker but this was really good. Pours dark brown with a very nice off-white head. A very complex taste, can not identify the components but GOOD!

750 ml bottle. Pours a true black with a dark tan head that creeps to the edge of the glass, moderate lacing. Aroma is complex, deep and rich: chocolate malt, roast, toffee sweetness. Flavor is large and in charge: chocolate notes come through the intense and balanced RIS flavors. Alcohol is well masked - this is 11.5%? Viscous as oil. Delicious. From notes 1/23/10 (Geist Dark Lord tasting).

Bomber into tulip. Pours dark black, very thick like oil, with a small foamy head. Aroma is roast, malt, chocolate, dark fruit, caramel. Taste is a bit of a letdown, with some soy but also molasses, coffee, chocolate, hops, caramel. Fantastic thick mouthfeel, very smooth. This reminded me a lot of Avery Uncle Jacobís.

Super black with the brownest head i have ever seen. Big dark chocolaty nose. Slightly boozy flavor, lots of chocolate again but it is tempered by a good dose of roasty bitterness. Huge delicious beer.

Bottle courtesy of Jimmy from Jacksonville, Fl. What an incredibly delicious and complex imperial stout. The pour was jet black with a beautiful dark brown head. The aroma was that of roasted malts. The flavors were remarkably layered and complex with roasted malts, dark roasted coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla, oak and molasses. One of the all time great stouts, this one certainly packed a wallop at 11%.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Viscous black pour with a warm brown head. Molasses, burnt sugar, cocoa nibs, vanilla, black coffee, floral and herbal hops. Roasted malt sweetness balanced with unsweetened chocolate bitterness. Thick, chewy, full-bodied, with a pleasant sweet/bitter finish. Alcohol peeps out now and then, but is unobtrusive. Fantastic imperial stout, I salute the Marshal.

Draft at brewery. Pitch black pour. Bit more bitter than expected (possibly just the alcohol flavor? ). Otherwise, a tasty chocolate stout but seems overrated
