Amazing silky creamy body on this one. Aroma is of dark fruits and bakers chocolate with some coffee. Taste is bitter roasty and intense with dominant chocolate flavors. Really big beer with a lot of punch. Good stuff.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2012 Big heavy sweet roasted imperial stout, no frills. Aroma is strong roasted black malts and so is body. Finish goes bitter, like bitter chocolate. So it’s gotta have a ton of hops, I’m a fan.

Pours dark black with notes of burnt caramel. the heavy roast of the malts then fill up while still keeping the abc somewhat hidden. I nice dry long finish shows the abc a bit more than normal.

What can you say about this one....pours liquid black with a small tan head. Nose of high % dark chocolate, oatmeal and roasted notes...some smoke as well. Mouthfeel is rich and full, and the flavor is like the nose, with a touch of coffee and very dark fruits as well.
