Full black body with a thick brown head. Aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, cocoa and toasted stuff. Dry flavor of pretty much the same things with some pine. Also earthy hops are apparent. Nice aftertaste and carbonation. Lowe1983 (1594) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Rating 1300. Pours a black color with a tan head. Aroma is of caramel, roasted, and chocolate malts with a hint of citrus hops. Plenty of rye as well on the aroma. Flavor is strong of the roasted, rye, and chocolate malts. There’s a hint of citrus hops on the finish with plenty of bitterness as well. Not much alcohol flavor for being an imperial stout. osu97gp (678) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 9, 2013

This is a very nice, very fresh tasting stout. Potent, a bit of licorice, some pepper, delicious. Tried at On the Rocks beer tasting in Nov. 2013.
