UPDATED: JUL 7, 2012 Wow, I always knew Dock Street was a major player in beerdom, but this one blew me away. Draft at Craft, you daft outcast. I had it last week, and had it again today to reaffirm my rating, and my rating was reaffirmed big time. The pour is onyx, with no light transmittance detected at all, and a 2-finger, clingy, very brown head. The nose is great; a medley of roasty dark malt, dark chocolate, figs, molasses, oaky earthy notes, and spicy sandalwood. The palate is hefty, rich, well balanced, very complex, with no hitn of the massive alcohol content. The flavor is heavily dark malty, semi-sweet, with rich dark chocolate, fig, molasses, dark fruit, late hops, and a super smooth finish that will cause you to want to drink this until you fall over. Wonderful, just absolutely wonderful beer. Get ya some, and get ya some today!! GreenDragon (219) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 23, 2010
This beer is served in an attractive snifter with a small but thick creamy-brown head. The aroma has strong malty notes with hints of cherry and apricots. The flavor has complex malty notes with figs and nuts. The mouth-feel is amazing - full bodied and warm. Jesterdeal (1986) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - MAR 11, 2012
Aroma of sweet coffee, chocolate and toffee. Pours black with tan lacing. Taste is super sweet with chocolate and slight alcohol burn. Finishes roasty with a great coffee coating throughout the mouth. TomDecapolis (4636) - Milton, Delaware, USA - MAR 14, 2009

On tap at Capone’s. Pours a black color with a nice thick tan head. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, and roast. Thick, sweet, roasty, chocolaty taste. My lord. Roasty and complex. Creamy. Perfect clean finish. This is a good beer.

Growler graciously shared by TBS. Poured dark brown with a nice creamy beige head. Aroma of big roasted malt, chocolate, oak, vanilla. Taste is also very big with lots of roasted malt, more vanilla and oak, some faint dark fruit. Finish is smooth and little warming. Mouth was big and creamy. Overall, a great imperial stout.

On draft at the GL. Pours a thick pitch black with a medium light brown head. Aroma of roasted malts and dark bitter chocolate. Taste of rich roasted malts and dark chocolate.
