Slightly smokey. Good flavor, not 100% my favorite rye stout ever, but at the top. The smoke makes it different.

Draft at Bocktown Robinson. Pours a dark brown color with a large creamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma rye and roasted malts playing together nicely. The taste is roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, rye, bitter hops. Medium-full bodied. Nice beer.

Damico (3147) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2012
Pours unclear dark coffee with a decent cocoa head. The aroma is light vanilla notes, but not much else. The flavor brings some light sweet carbonated malts, almost like bland soda. It leaves quite a bit to be desired. Some light bitter coffee notes are present on a lighter body as well.

Draft at Eulogy. Pitch black with a small tan head. Big complex imperial. Burned coffee up front. Rye adds a very nice componant. Medium body reads just a little thin for the size of the flavors. Pretty damn good.

Complex aroma with spicy rye mixed with roasted malt. Medium-full body. Rich malty notes on the palate, I like the rye.

On tap at Bocktown, Robinson. A nice imperial stout. Aroma was very weak for the style. Could pick up roasted malt and not much else. You really had to put your nose in the glass for it. Pour was a nice deep dark brown with a one finger tan head. Taste was a lot better than the aroma. Roasted malt and coffee flavors in the beginning. Very thick mouth feel. After the swallow, bitter hops kick in and leave the mouth nice and bitter. The finish is quick, however, and seems gone before you can fully enjoy it. Nice carbonation. Decent beer.

boto (2261) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - OCT 9, 2011
Growler from Brewery: This one pours an opaque, almost black dark brown color. There was a bit of a dark tan head on it that lingers awhile and leaves some lacing. The aroma is quite nice. Roasted malts, hints of chocolate, coffee and definitely some rye. Slightly slick mouthfeel. Interesting mix of tastes. Roasted malts, rye, some chocolate. Somewhat dry slightly spicy finish. Alcohol is well hidden. A very nice variation of an Imperial Stout. Nice!

Had this on tap at the bocktown monaca. Barely any aroma, just a clean friendly olfactory. First taste is roasty dark and bitter. This is quite like many impy stouts I’ve tasted. Perhaps there is tad of hops in there but can’t tell fer sure. Roasty and strong, much more than the typical lager can do. Somewhat rude, yet on style. Barely any co2. Long bitter impy stout finish. Mouthcoating roto-tiller beer drinken experience.

This poured a dark brown with a beige head. Aroma was of dark roasted malts, and some dark chocolate too. Flavor was very burny dark chocolate and the rye shows a little bit. Overall a decent impy

MrBunn (2844) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 6, 2011
On tap at Fat Heads in Pittsburgh. Pours almost black with a thin head. Aromas are nice. A mix of peat, bourbon, smoke and prunes or other dark fruit. Flavor is sweet and earthy with a fruity sweetness. Rue and sweet burnt brown sugar dominate with a slightly distracting medicinal edge to it all.
