Bottiglia ordinata su domus birrae, bevuta a casa. Scura con schiuma persistente. Al naso profumo di tostato, in bocca torna una tostatura delicata ed alcol. Buona ma provato di meglio. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhold

I bought a 4 pack...locally. Good to see GF in town. Pitch black pour that brings a 2 finger head of tan foam. The foam is just sitting there, not shrinking at all, so I guess Ill have to drink some to check on the lacing. Thats a + comment. Nice notes of roasted malt, chocolate, and dark fruits in the nose. Mostly on the sweetish side but has some bitterness. No aroma of any of the biggish abv. My, this is a chewy brew. I love the roasted malt character that brings some dark fruits, nice chocolate flavour, and a pretty strong roasted malt bitterness. The alcohol does come through more in the taste than the smell and at times, seems to dominate the taste. Fix that, and I think the brew would be up there in world class territory. Big bodied with ample carbonation, the mouthfeel is fine. Overall, its a nice Imperial Stout. Just needs a bit of tweeking to get it where Id want it to be. I almost forgot...lacing is fine.

bigtaster (965) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - DEC 8, 2013
From a bottle, huge brown head that lasts, black body. Chocolate on the nose, roasted barley, something else I cant nail down. Full body, some initial toffee, bitter from start to end, lingers for a very long time. Slightly astringent, sweetness is mostly at the beginning with toffee, molasses, and chocolate. Great bodied dry Stout.

Draft. Thick and dark as used oil, this stuff is an intimidating pitch black. Its topped with one finger of silky graham cracker head that becomes a thin top layer that grips the glass in full sheets. The aroma is a enticing blend of cocoa, coffee, toast and peanuts. Each sniff reveals a solid new notes: vanilla, molasses and more. Soft sweetness; great roast character. Bigger molasses and anise in the flavor, paired with equally forceful burnt toast and charcoal. A creamy blend of dark chocolate, cream and vanilla bean adds just enough sweetness. The bodys a creamy medium, nice and velvety. Carbonation is a little high and prickly, breaking the beer into too much fizz. Some heat appears on the tongue, with accompanying warmth on the way down the throat. Nice.

Aroma of dark chocolate, milk, and alcohol. Terrific creamy brown head. Thick syrupy feel on the mouth. Nicely effervescent carbonation. Hot chocolate flavor and texture in the first sips. Middle is of banana. Finishes w/ roasty flavors of chocolate, hops, and alcohol. A big well put together stout
