Pours out like 10w40. Thick and rich and chocolate, and coffee, then some licorice. Very tar-like, but in a good way. Holy shit, why can’t all beers taste this good?
Can, 2017 vintage. Rich roasted malt aroma with notes of dark chocolate, coffee, caramel and toffee. Pours deep brown with a large mocha brown head that has excellent retention and some lacing. Starts with rich roasted malt, dark chocolate and some coffee flavors with a nice full body and smooth mouthfeel. Finishes smooth with caramel and toffee sweetness with a good amount of roasted malt lingering on the palate after each sip. Very nice imperial stout. beergearbox (35) - London, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2017

Dit is een krachtige stout met redelijk wat hop. In het begin zoet daarna lange bittere afdronk met iets zoet, erg lekker. cremig, pikzwart, geroosterde noten, wat een top biertje. Een eerste goeie imperial stout uit de US die ik drink. Bootlegger007 (243) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 7, 2017
Pours black, dark small tan rocky head which only rims the glass, heavily roasted malt aroma, coffee and chocolate, the flavour of chocolate is strong, a peppery coffee bitterness blends together well, with a sweet mouthfeel of caramel, fantastic on a cool winters night, very warming
