WillRunForBeer (2396) - Massachusetts, USA - SEP 2, 2016
22oz bottle, reasonably priced at $7. Pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is dark bread, molasses. Flavor is dark chocolate, a hint of molasses. A touch thin for an impy stout, and theres a bit of over-extracted coffee astringency in the finish. Im surprised that this is so highly rated.

fuzzcro (279) - Illinois, USA - AUG 22, 2016
Maybe it was just my taste that day but this tasted like wet tobacco. I somehow think I missed something because the other ratings are favorable. I will say it is a nice dark pour.
