Pours black, rubied, with a small, dark head.
Chocolate malt aroma....big time....
Sweet, cocoa powder flavor.
Very good, but nearly too sweet. shrubber85 (11408) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Bottle. Chocolate syrup malt aroma. Dark chestnut with minimal head. Sweet chocolate syrup malt flavor. Light hay finish. Very sweet but not quite cloying. MacBoost (1898) - Victor, New York, USA - NOV 28, 2013
Pours a heavy black with a thin tan head. Aromas of chocolate and marshmallow. Taste is smooth chocolate milkshake. Creamy. Not much barrel influence. Some dark fruits, but the chocolate is what really shines. Not too sweet. Slight alcohol burn. This beer is criminally underrated, perhaps due to the reputation of its brewery. Drink this beer. tad_davis (5) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 21, 2013 does not count
Very chocolate beer! I think the aroma is outstanding, very dark looking and deceiving. I was expecting a thicker palate just because of how dark but I would compare it to Coors Lite. I swear I get more of a raspberry/chocolate taste than anything else. All in all not a bad beer but it is too "fru-fru" for me personally.

Sampled at esbls. Black not a lot of aroma but a rich sweet flavor. Very complex. Chocolate. Very smooth and sweet. Only a little whiskey. Tasty stuff. Beergeek23322 (2602) - Chester, Virginia, USA - OCT 24, 2013
2/9/2013. 22 oz. bottle. Pours black with a beige head. Aromas of chocolate, coffee, dark roasted malt, dark fruits. Hint of vanilla, but the chocolate and oak leads the way. This is good! FROTHINGSLOSH (7796) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a medium sized foamy dark tan head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was sweet and toasty vanilla, cocoa and a bit of whiskey. The flavor was sweet and toasty vanilla cream, marshmallow, anise and rum. Long finish. Thick, creamy and smooth body. Excellent. glennmastrange (2870) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Bottle. Moderate to heavy toasted, molasses and dark chocolate for the malt, moderate resin and herbs for the hops, light earth for the yeast, with notes of raisin, tar, cola, and whiskey. Head is small, frothy, tan with spotyy lacing and good legs, and is almost fully diminishing. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly sweet with a long bitter end. Palate is medium to full, between oily and creamy, with a carbonation on the soft side of lively and a finish that’s moderately alcoholic and sticky. Nice and bold, a little too sweet for an Imperial Stout, but the bourbon barrel adds good depth making it even easier to sip the whole bomber down. Edtorrey (26) - Maryland, USA - OCT 6, 2013
Just what you want in an imperial stout. Rich dark chocolate color, smooth and smoky forward palate and enough residual sugars to soften 9.5%ABV finish. You have to work at it to keep from downing it too fast.
Added to my favorites.
