On tap at Haymarket.
Black with a small tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, light oak and some toffee. Similar taste. The body was full and the finish with warming alcohol. A nice one to sip.

(En fût à la brasserie): Des feuilles de tabac et des flocons de noix de coco grillé emprisonnés dans un caramel onctueux. Décadence adéquate. JK (6160) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Tap at the brewery. Black, little carbonation. Some soy sauce, heavily roasted malt, thick palate and some alcohol burn. Some character of coffee and chocolate, and a little sweet. I good brewpub imperial stout. Beerman6686 (6607) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 7, 2016
Poured a darker brown with a tan head. Aroma was deep dark roast, almost burnt, with a smokey ashy character. Flavor similar, a bit rough and acrid, but hid the booze well for its size. mfhennig (285) - McHenry County, Illinois, USA - DEC 14, 2015
On tap at the pub, served in a snifter. If it wasn’t black, it was close, minimal brown head. Aroma is heavy on the roasted malt, some bitter coffee, dark berries. Flavor has some coffee, molasses, caramel, moderate bitterness. Good mouthful, thick and chewy. Overall I thought this was a top notch stout. Very nicely done.

Draft to snifter at Three Floyds. Looks good; a dull dark brownish black with mocha head that dissipates into lacing. Smells sweet and malty with a bit of coffee and cherries. Nice and smooth on the palate. Good beer. jcwattsrugger (12420) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - SEP 17, 2013
