Has a dark brown colour. But a fairly thin head. This has a touch of smoky note, with some roasty notes. Nice tarry, smoky, bourbony taste. Not the most refined, but I certainly like the tarry note. jgb9348 (6477) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 11, 2016
Shows 9,5% abv on my bottle:
Deep dark brown coloured body with a thinnish, single centimetre tall off-white head that lasts quite long. Aroma of roasted malt, figs, prunes, raisins, grapes, toffee and a bit of coffee, also. Medium-bodied; Assertive malty, caramel, toffee, coffee-y and especially nutty finish with the malt showing way more of anything throughout the entire profile. Aftertaste shows a bit of restraint, with some earth and malt, but nothing horribly offensive or strong that isn’t expected. Overall, a decent Imperial Stout with a touch too much complexity and not enough understanding of how the beer would play out once the top was cracked. I sampled this 75 cL bottle purchased from DT’s Liqour Market in Cheyenne, Wyoming on 18-March-2016 for US$10,70 sampled at home in Washington on 10-October-2016 after just returning from Minot, North Dakota! alexsdad06 (10803) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - AUG 14, 2016
Bottle picked up in Wisconsin from notes. Pours dark brown to black in color with a medium sized tan head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malts, dark chocolate, some smoked malt character, dark fruits, molasses, earthy and woody. Pretty solid. markextrae (4485) - Alingsås, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - JUL 7, 2016

Grand Teton puts up a solid full bodied and full flavored stout. Oozing dark roasted espresso in both aroma and flavor but also exhibiting some bakers chocolate and mild dark fruits. The flavors evolve through the glass, winding up with a light sweetness and hints of vanilla and roasted nuts. Pours pitch black with a thick rocky tan head.

Pours up an oily black, with a small tan head. Aroma is like roast, bread, cocoa, peat, coffee. Flavor is slightly acidic with coffee, some earthy herbal hops, and a spiced bitter finish. A nice stout cathcacr (647) - Oregon, USA - MAR 8, 2016
Fine beer although middle of the pack for an IS (which means around 17/20 on my scale). You’ll get what you expect out of IS, which is good, though probably not much more. commonshawn (1321) - Minnesota, USA - FEB 20, 2016
Tap at ox cart with commonmac and samadouche and Qponnagy. Black with small off white head. Subtle aroma. Heavy roast malt. Alcohol there. Syrupy a little bit. Too much peat. A strong beer. I?m boiling in this cauldron. MNAle (226) - Minnesota, USA - FEB 16, 2016
Bottled: August 2015. Tasted Feb 14, 2016. Started with a ~3 or 4 oz pour. Very dark with a nice tan head (about 1/2 inch). Too dark for any visible carbonation. Nutty aroma, perhaps a bit of chocolate and raisin. Some vanilla. Very smooth initial taste, thick feel, stickiness on the tongue and throat in the aftertaste. Taste follows the aroma, nutty and dark fruits a bit past their prime. Alcohol is present in the taste, but not dominating (but it certainly hits you soon enough!). Semi-sweet. Very pleasant, but no bittering at all. Very, very smooth, thick, and mild. I consider the total lack of bittering to be a downgrade on what is otherwise an excellent stout.
