22 oz bottle. Pours typical black, with a small light brown head. Head diminishes after a while leaving some nice lacing. Aroma is pretty faint, chocolate and pine. Taste is packed full of flavors, chocolate, coffee, toffee, all very strong. Nice and bitter. Creamy, full mouthfeel, bitter finish. Very good imp stout. joekfsu (138) - Boardman, Ohio, USA - JUL 22, 2007
12 oz. bottle. Pours black with a small, brown head that is fully diminishing. The aroma of chocolate dominates. Coffee and caramel were the two flavors that stood out to me. The chocolate flavor was more on the back end for me along with some nice hoppiness. Great mouthfeel with a medium/full body that is creamy smooth. I look forward to more of these in the future. festyzizzle (30) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUL 22, 2007
Pulled from a cask at the Waterfront Ale House. Served in a snifter. Great dark color and tan frothy head. The aroma was of coffee and dark chocolate. This beer had flavors of coffee, chocolate and vanilla. The flavor was constantly changing with each sip. A very good beer that needs to be tried. GenoG (12) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 17, 2007
22oz bottle poured into snifter.
Black with tan head that quickly disappears and leaves tan bubbles. With agitation tan head returns to generous proportion.
Smell is s slight hint of a strong alcohol scent. candy, cherry smell, subtle.
Very roasted malty flavor, dark chocolate, coffee as well.
Limited carbonation, very smooth and rich. Little stickyness, and Alcohol lingers in your mouth to warm you quickly. Have an oak aged version that now I can’t wait to try.
Very impressive, thoroughly enjoyed this beer as the evening went on. Slowly sipped with a tiramisu dessert.

Bottle...I really liked this stout. It is very creamy and rich with strong coffee flavors. Dark caramel-color head with good lacing. Very satisfying, I had two. I’d love to try the Oak-aged variation.

Pours engine oil black with fairly prominent & bouyant tan head. Quite hoppy on the nose, with touches of citrus and pine. The taste itself is quite hoppy for the style but still quite pleasing. There are touches of chocolate, sugar and toasted malts but the hops dominate this yeti-ridden landscape, and I am not complaining. The "onslaught of the senses" is quite an appropriate description and I feel as I’ve been mauled by a Yeti when the glass was empty. rmalloy (199) - los angeles, California, USA - JUL 15, 2007
This tastes like every other good imperial stout. What’s there to say? Chocolate, coffee, caramel, blah blah blah. They’re all good but they’re all almost the same. You’d have to be a pretty shitty brewer not to get a good rating for an imperial stout, unless (in the case of A le Coq) you try to do something different. ilovedarkbeer (2747) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUL 14, 2007
Much similiar to barrel aged yeti but the oily vanilla tastes is absent. This one tastes more roasted. Pours an INKY black color with a small brown acidic head. Tastes like coffee and malt. Pretty good but there is some odd hop added that is off. Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 13, 2007
Rated 7/13/07. Straight up black pour. Held it up to the light, and absolutely nothing came through. Dark as the darkest night. Tan head that leaves behing a nice spiderweb of lacing. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, and raw sugar cane. The flavor is the same. Not particularly complex, but incredibly well executed. The body is oily and viscous. There is a very slick mouthfeel. Smooth, sweet stout. jameswolfe (160) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUL 13, 2007
Lately Ive been wondering if I like IIPAs more than any other style of beer. I just drank tis and now I remember why I like Imperial Stouts the best. Nice chocolate aroma, pitch black in the glass and the most important part: Massively heavy, creamy, rich tasting brew of chocolate, caramel, and molasses. Very satisfying.
