Strong malty and coffee aroma. Great nutty flavor of dark chocolate and coffee. Nice weight on the palate and extremely smooth. Slight alcohol taste but not overwhelming. - Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2015 This beer is an explosion if flavor. It pours thick and looks like motor oil. It could be a sipping beer but I found myself guzzling it because it tastes so darn good. Reminds me of some mighty fine imperial stouts that are aged in Whiskey barrels. Dont need the whiskey barrel. This brew stands in its own. Definitely a powerful brew. Drink a bomber if this and go to bed!

Growler from Lone Star Taps & Caps. Black with thin tan head, a little oily in appearance. Aroma of coffee with a little coffee. Coffee is strong in the flavor. Not very boozy for 11% ABV. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DuffLover (124) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 21, 2014
Strong roasted coffee and chocolate aromas, with a hint of liquor. Roasted coffee flavor just shy of bitter. Smooth finish. Price needs to come down to make this a good value. Many delicious chocolate imperial stouts are a better value. Release #32.
