Average imperial stout. Typical flavors, chocolate, roasty, molasses. Nothing too special here for me.

Poured pitch black with a finger and a half of a nice tan head. Nose is very heavy on coffee with hints of molasses. Taste follows the nose and is a coffee lovers delight. I found the finish to be too bitter for my liking. If you like heavy coffee/espresso stout you will probably love this.

Poured from 12oz bottle. Pours black as night with one finger of tan head. Aroma is espresso and burnt sugar. Taste is smoke, coffee and some burnt malt. There is a ton of bitterness in the back of this one. Similar to KBS, but just not as boozy, but equally biting.

Poured black with a thick brown head like what’s left in the top of a great root beer float that has sat and warmed a bit. First impression is full flavored and drinkable being not as thick as experted. A bit more alcohol burn than would like, but great coffee dark fruit and malt flavor with a bit of lingering sour. Would be great if it had an aroma to match, but pretty weak.

12oz bottle in a snifter. Pours black with a thin, tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, dark coffee, dark chocolate, and a little hops. Flavor very strong on the roasted malts, probably one of the strongest of this flavor I have tasted in a beer. In the words of Paul Wall, "Got a cup full of that oil." It’s no KBS or Breakfast stout, but it is very good.

Pours pitch black and thick with a nice brown head. Huge coffee aroma with some chocolate and roasted malt. Taste is malty with some bitter coffee, roasted malts. Very smooth with a bit of an alcoholic warmth. Very flavorful, complex, enjoyable.

abcfan (920) - New Jersey, USA - APR 13, 2011
Awesome brew. Pours black with fluffy tan head. Coffee and malt aromas. Very smooth drinking, tastes like chocolate and iced coffee, with a light cherry finish. Chewy mouthfeel, finishes easy with a little booziness. Would drink again.
