Malty and sweet, gorgeous pour on tap at one of my favorite bars in Mpls. Very definite chocolate presence here at the forefront of the flavor. Pleasant on the tongue and interesting. My friends all agreed at the table: this was the best stout theyve had. Im not sure if its my fav. but if I want a choco-tastic, creamy beer Ill go this route.

Brandon1989 (635) - Lewisville, Texas, USA - MAY 5, 2017
Pours a very dark brown, almost black with a nice creamy two finger tan head. The aroma is chocolate, cinnamon, lactose, and some vegetable notes but not spicy in any way however. The flavor is also similar to the aroma. The chocolate is there, so is the cinnamon, medium roasted barley malts, brown bread, very mild pepper flavor. The mouthfeel is medium and the abv is hidden.

Cajun (531) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - MAR 31, 2017
Bottle - Pours straight up black, tan creamy head. Aroma of dark roasted malts, chocolate, hints of coffee and Coke. Flavors of a bakers chocolate pie - with buttery crust, creamy mouth-feel, dark malts, bitter hops, and a delicious vanilla center. Surprisingly good.

Reid (2497) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JAN 21, 2017
12 oz single purchased from Lifesource in Salem for the VERY high price of $4.59 Pours a gorgeous dark mahogany almost black body with an attractive creamy tan head. Aromas of semi dark chocolate and coffee and cream..a litle chili maybe,,something triggers in the back of the nasal passage. Taste very smooth like creamed coffee ice cream with vanilla nibs and chilis. Milky Italian roast coffee..nice stuff. Excellent creamy solid and smooth mouth feel. Often these Imperials bog down the tongue..but this none is smooth as butter and no alcohol burn. As an Oregonian and local beer type i was ready to burn this one..but it is an excellent beer and i wish i could get it fresh on tap.
