22oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Nice flavors of dark fruits, chocolate, molasses and licorice. Despite the high abv there is very little alcohol taste or burn. Overall an easy drinking impy that I thoroughly enjoyed. Maxbier (1000) - Maryland, USA - JAN 10, 2015

22 ounce bottle, 2014 edition. Served in a DFH snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with maybe an inch tan head that stuck around a while. There’s also a good amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like dark fruit, molasses, roasted malt, bittersweet chocolate and some coffee. I think the taste is similar to the aroma, but with some milk chocolate, vanilla, and a bit of licorice noticeable. I think the strongest flavors are the molasses and dark fruity ones at first, with the chocolate kicking in more after a while. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit slick and creamy with moderate carbonation. I think it’s a good overall imperial stout. At $5.99 a bomber, it’s definitely worth picking up at least once!
