Draft at Tyler’s. Pitch black with a nice tan head and heavy lacing. Intense aroma of chocolate, rich black coffee, and sugar. Excellently balanced flavors...roasted nuts, dark chocolate, nice sweetness, and a little alcohol. Actually there’s surprisingly little alcohol on the flavor and the finish for a beer that’s this strong. It goes down as smooth as many well made stouts with half the strength. Lovely stuff...now if only I could get more of it somehow. wcampbell (721) - Clemson, South Carolina, USA - MAR 5, 2011
Draft. A more subtle beer than I was expecting. No single flavor dominates the beer. Lightly dry chocolate flavor is in the background. Full bodied and malty. Initially sweet flavor with a dry finish. One of the most drinkable imperial stouts I have had, but not the most unique. railcat1 (702) - Kissimmee, Florida, USA - APR 29, 2007

deadCATAtlanta brought back a 2012 vintage from Charleston, Sout Carolina and shared with me and jrob21. Something apropos about rating this beer while listening to a vinyl copy of Al Green Explores Your Mind I picked up at the flea market. Pours nearly black with big tan head. Scent is coffee, chocolate, and roasted grains. Body is beautiful blend of sweet and roast. Thick with light carbonation.

22-oz. bottle split with jpdurden24 (among others). Very chocolate nose with with a bitter licorice component and some coffee. Dark, clear brown in appearance. Slight bittersweet chocolate taste with a lot of ash and tar. Bitter, sticky palate. Nothing remarkable at all; I’d say this one is overrated.

Thank you MrBunn...you win. Smells of cherry pipe tobacco.....light chocolate and some pine. Pours black with a rich tan head. Incredibly smooth, with notes of resin, some chocolate, a bit of spice, and some tobacco. This is good stuff. finish has a lingering sweet/bitter chocolate to it that makes my mouth fall in love with it. Sexual Chocolate, indeed. kidobutai (696) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - FEB 20, 2017
Poured from tap as part of a flight at Foothills Brewpub. Decent lacing and head, black but not thick in appearance. Milk chocolate aroma, vanilla, like hot cocoa. Delicious. beerme31 (692) - Holly Springs, North Carolina, USA - FEB 14, 2016
Draft. Pours dark brown thin tan lacing. Aroma of chocolate and roastiness. Taste is sweet. Creamy smooth texture, mild bitterness and warming sensation. hobbersr (690) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 31, 2010
Thanks to savvy1982 for the share! bottle # 697. Tasted back to back to back with Zukov and Hunahpu. Pours black with a small off white head. The aroma is quite yeasty, and hoppy with hints of chocolate. The flavor is rich and chocolaty. Molasses, licorice, chocolate, vanilla and a funky hop finish. Fluffy mouth feel. Great stout. jsh12bama (681) - Alabama, USA - MAR 7, 2009
Pours black with thick tan head. Aroma of roasted malt. Taste is again roasted malts and dark fruits. Good but not worth the hype.
