Draft pour into a pint glass (DAMN). The beer is a dark brow to black with a khaki head of foam. The aroma has ashy dark chocolate with notes of caramel and toffee. Some nutty notes. Big body and medium carbonation.

Draft at ChurchKey. Dark black pour with a slight tan head. Big roasted malt nose. Bitter chocolate, roasted malt, tobacco, finishes roasty rather than malty. Nice.

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2016 It pours black with a dark brown head that has some lacing. It has strong chocolate aromas with coffee, roasted malts, and hints of hops. There are strong flavors of chocolate, roasted flavors, floral hops, and coffee. It has a heavy texture to it and has a strong aftertaste.

Chocolate notes abound in this smooth drinking imperial stout. Fortunate to find this local with growler filling. Looking forward to trying some aged versions.

Cybercat (6239) - Georgia, USA - JAN 9, 2016
Taps rich, warm sable with a thick tan head. Aroma presents rich roast malt, chocolate (loads of chocolate!) quality coffee and molasses tones plus fruity and toffee hints. Flavor is sinfully delightful - rich chocolate, roast malt, molasses, top-grade coffee, hints of toffee and fruit, both pomme and dark. Mouthfeel features viscous body and strong, persistent fizz. I’ve been chasing this for years, and at long last I have been deflowered!

Thanks Mike!

Poured a black color with 2-to-3 fingers of frothy, tan head. Below average spotty lacing on the sides of the glass. Excellent retention on the top all the way down. (Sight - 4.25)

Smelled rich, dark chocolate, dark cocoa, dark toffee, light coffee, faint molasses, chocolate syrup, rich caramel and light licorice. Awesome on the nose. (Smell - 4.75)

Tasted dark chocolate milk, smokiness, dark cocoa nibs, rich, dark toffee, dark caramel, roasty malts, chocolate syrup and some booziness. (Taste - 4.25)

Full body. Creamy-to-sticky texture. Average carbonation. Long, smooth finish. (Feel - 4.25)

This was just a really good beer. Would love to try this again, as well as the BBA version. (Overall - 4.25)

Bottle from trade. Pour black with small head. Sweet chocolate taste but it could be stronger, probably because the bottle is a bit old.
