Undated bottle, drunk 2/20/16.AirForceHops (7233) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 20, 2016
Deep black ebony beer shows a dark tan head that shows no retention. Clarity is low.
Phenol, massively anise-like roast, and a huge glue note lingering. Some light soy and crunchy roast behind it. Lots of glue.
Black licorice, anise, bitter roast, and creme brulee. Hmmm i want to like this and its nicely dry, but its so intensely peppery and astringent with heavy coffee and treacle. Light carbonation, lightly loose. Low alcohol. Lots of char
Willrunforbeer with this bottle share. Labeled as 9th Anniversary. Thin talk lasting head. aroma is chocolate, dry roast, soy sauce, burnt grain. AdamChandler (5051) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 20, 2016
Alcohol is rather mellow. Pretty much as it smells. Bold chocolate, dry roasted texture in a mostly full body. Pretty respectable.
Thanks WillRun. Pitch Black here. looks a bit oily. Smells pretty good. It has a really good sweetness, solid bitterness with the standard aromas in a stout. Exceptional mouthfeel. Really spot on. Coats the mouth, really a joy to drink. There’s a bit of smoked malt here for sure but the molasses adds a great complexity. has a sweetness with refined bitterness with a really good finish.

Poured from a 22 ounce bomber. Pours thick with a tan oily head. The aroma is rich chocolaty malts, molasses, burnt/roasted malts. The flavor is chocolaty, burnt toast, smoky. This is on the roasty side as imperial stouts go. Very enjoyable. Atom (2442) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 30, 2014
Bottle pours a dark thick motor oil black/brown with a medium reddish tan head. Aroma of dark fruits, cocoa, and molasses. Thick palate, taste of dark chocolate, roasted malt, licorice, brown sugar, with some bittering hops on the finish. Nice flavor and balance, perfect for bone chilling nights like tonight!

On tap at Capone’s. Pours a murky black color with caramel colored head. Great look. Aroma of roast, chocolate, caramel, and some licorice. Roasty caramel, chocolate taste with a nice roughness to it. Rugged and flavorful. Really enjoyed.
