Opaque in color with a finger sized dark brown head that holds its shape well. Smells of black molassas and chocolate. The flavor is of rich dark chocolate, roasted malts, molassas and licorice. Thick mouthfeel but silky smooth. This is only the second beer that stained the glass after it was empty. The other being Dark Lord. Way to easy to drink as the abv is not noticable. Had on-tap at the release.

Pours black with a tan head. The aroma has lots of chocolate, roasted malt, slight coffee and vanilla. Taste follows, with big milk chocolate dominating, mild coffee, and some mild caramel beneath. Long, slightly bitter finish. As far as chocolate imperial stouts go, this one is up there! Very nice

Poured from a bottle. Dark brown color, medium tan head. Smoky malt aroma. Full body with a hickory chocolate malt flavor and a nice finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JBPortland (1535) - Hampton Roads, Virginia, USA - MAR 16, 2017
22oz bottle pours inky black brown with two finger tan head. Nose and taste have big licorice, molasses, dusty dark bitter cocoa, bakers chocolate, not very sweet, dark fruity finish with nice mouthfeel and some dryness on the finish. Solid. Not worth $18 22oz though.

Aroma of chocolate with notes of Nestles Quick. Dark Brown with a lasting tan head with nice lacing. Taste of chocolate and molasses with a full bodied oily feel and a bitter dark chocolate finish.

On tap at the brewpub. Everything about this beer screams roasted chocolate - drinks really easily for a 10% abv. Lives up to the hype.

Yeah, just a darn good imperial stout. Chocolate roasty some dark fruit. Not the thickest body for such a big bruiser, but definitely a drinkable imperial. Good show.

oobawa (1102) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 21, 2017
Giant mocha nose, and the pour is infinite black with a dark brown head. Bittersweet chocolate on top of espresso, with a Hershey syrup backbone and a dry, clingy bitter fade. Dark cherry and raisin develop as it warms, but the finish refuses to grow cloy. Nice, but a bit boozy. Needs age. (2/2011)

kidobutai (678) - 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.
