Bottle poured a clear dark reddish brown with a small lingering tan head. Aromas of roastiness, light dark chocolate and light vanilla. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of roastiness, bitter chocolate and earthiness with a smooth lingering roasty finish. GODiSSOUTHERN (390) - Virginia, USA - OCT 19, 2012
Pours very dark brown. Nice medium chalky chocolatey taste and a medium dry mouthfeel. DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Poured into a perfect pint.
3.0 A: Black color. Only 1/3 of a finger of creamy light brown head formed.
3.5 S: Moderately high roastiness, molasses, caramel, and light coffee. Pronounced hoppiness featuring citrusy orange and flowery earthiness.
3.5 T: Moderately roasty. Molasses, caramel, and coffee in that order. Fairly dry overall. Higher potency bitterness coming mainly from the hops. Citrus and earthy hop flavor.
3.0 M: Medium body. Moderate, though bity, carbonation. Lacking creaminess.
3.0 D: I’m not a huge fan of hoppy stouts and this is one. The mouthfeel is also pretty mediocre.

Very dark brownish red color, brown head. Sweet, malty scent, also hops. Sweet, hoppy taste. Medium mouthfeel, medium high bitterness.
Small cream colored head. Hoppy malt and coffee ground smell. Bitter taste with coffee grounds and a bit of chocolate after taste. Not very complex, and not a great imperial overall.

floral hop aroma, dark ruby brown, dense tan head, rich and sweet with notes of cocoa and coffee and a dry hop finish. notalush (5878) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 12, 2012
Thanks to Eugene for sharing - dark ruby, nearly black, with a soapy lace - aroma is moderate roast, chocolate pudding, coffee - flavor is medium dry, with sharp, almost astringent roast - moderate acidity - some bittersweet chocolate - finish has some ash/char - I want to like it a lot more than I do.
