22oz bomber poured into a snifter glass. Pours black and thick like used motor oil. Aggressive pour yields only a small one finger head that is dark cocoa brown and leaves lots of sticky lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, toffee and caramel. Taste is roasted malts up front with chocolate, toffee, caramel and hints of vanilla coming in as it warms. Full body, thick, creamy texture, moderate carbonation. Very nice! Cousin_Larry (895) - - FEB 16, 2013
An outstanding Imperial Stout. Pours thick but not too thick, aroma has hints of chocolate and coffee. Taste is not harsh like many imperial stouts. Advocate_Ames (635) - Steubenville, Ohio, USA - MAR 20, 2013
2011 Bottle. Not much carbonation, little to no head, but what a dark syrup like thickness. The aroma carries notes of oatmeal, lite roasted malts, and chocolate. As for flavor I encountered medium roasted malt intensity, dark chocolate, mild alcohol, hops, lite licorice, mild oats, coffee, and dried fruit. The finish has sweet roasty malts, chocolate, alcohol dryness, bitterness, coffee, and it has a creamy feel. Overall this was a very good beverage. It matured well. I would like to try it fresh to get a different coffee experience. NikkTwist (3304) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Draft at Eulogy. Snifter. Opaque pour with a foamy brown head that settled to some foamy islands. Boozy, slightly medicinal nose. Bitter chocolate. Charred wood. Turkish coffee. Nutella. Cigars. Nice full body. Silky finish. Great stuff. Hansen (8612) - Assentoft, DENMARK - MAR 30, 2013
Black coloured. Has a light brown head, medium duration. Heavy dark aroma, vanilla, sherry, red port-wine, lightly roasted. Heavy sweet flavor, more vanilla and creamy. Medium bitter finish. Syrupy texture. Soft carbonation.

Pours a thick black from the bottle with bubbly tan head that dissipates to fine ring of lace. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee, slight booze, and nice oatmeal sweetness. Taste is almost all roasted malts, but no hint of the booze and very smooth for how thick and big it is. Really good imperial stout! S_Side_Smitty (776) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - APR 17, 2013
Pours black with a minimal tan head. Aroma is molasses and bourbon-esque chocolate. Taste is very similar with smooth, roasted chocolate malt blended and balanced with light molasses. Mild alcohol is there for the finish. Well balanced. cubs (10693) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 20, 2013
Bottle @ Stephen’s place. Pours a black appearance with a dark brown head. Rich anise, goopy sweet malty, a bit toasty, chocolate aroma. Anise, tar, burnt malty, chocolate, a bit smoky, dark fruity flavor. Tasty. Steve_0 (3744) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 20, 2013
Bottle at home, courtesy of a fuckhead. Thanks Aaron!! Pour is pitch black with a frothy tan head and good lacing. Big raisins, figs, toffee, cocoa, espresso, caramel, prunes, and nutty aroma. Taste is dark chocolate, raisins, coffee, light vanilla, raisins, toffee, and earthy hops. Thick mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Nice!! akoeninger (769) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Pours deep brown like oil. Smells of roasted coffee, dark fruit, some booze. Oily, fruity, bourbon flavor. Roasted, caramel taste. Full bodied, slick and lingering finish. Nice boozy finish.
