Growler… RBWG ‘10This beer rocks!... Pours as black and thick as old engine oil with a small, khaki head that’s gone in a flash. Dark, carbonaceous bouquet – deeply roasted nuts and malts, blackstrap molasses and charcoal. Full-bodied and oily with muted carbonation. Hearty dark chocolate, dried plum and Cuban espresso flavor engulfs my tongue and palate until it finally fades a touch and then exits stage left. Growler courtesy of darkguardian!

daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 10, 2010
Hand bottle from moejuck. Black pour. Very small brownish head. Aroma is a roasted malt and walnut lovers dream. I get some biter chocolate, strong coffee beans, and some molasses. Flavor is roasty and hoppy. Walnuts, molasses, prunes, chocolate, coffee, hops....damn this is tasty as hell. Wow.

alexsdad06 (10430) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 11, 2011
Draft at Jackie O’s. Pours dark brown with a medium sized thick beige head. The aroma is big roasted malts, noticeable black walnuts, chocolate, dark candi sugar and a touch of char. The flavor is more big roasted malts, chocolate, char, dark sugar and caramel. The black walnuts add a special component to the beer. The mouthfeel is another aspect that, for me, makes this a standout beer. Thick and creamy, this begs to be poured into a snifter and slowly sipped on cooler fall and winter evenings. This has not failed to satisfy, whether it is from a bottle or on draft.

Bottle shared by bsuedekum- thanks again, Blake! 2011 bottle #120/348. Pours an opaque dark brown with a small dark tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, toast, and a lot of grains. Flavor of roasted malts, dark chocolate, oat-like grain, coffee, molasses, cola, and some faint dark fruit. Lingering roast. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a Roasty mouthfeel. Nice, straightforward imperial stout.

3.7
sebletitje (10080) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 17, 2011
Bottle @ Seabass going away party, Jan15th ’11. Courtesy of Solan. noire, fin col beige. Chocolaté, malt avec fin allant sur des notes de vanille. Au palais, la bière conserve un excellent goût de café, vanille, grains et de chocolat laissant une fine amertume au fini. On peut y noter les noix avec en arrière un peu de sucre candi. Un peu déçu par rapport à celle que j’avais pu goûter avant.

3.6
GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 29, 2011
651mL thanks to mdfb79. Thanks Red! The pour is near jet black with a thin, dark tan head. Aroma is cedar, black pepper, Beldi black olives. Salty, savory aroma. Taste is rich and viscous: buttery, syrupy, maple and vanilla, spicy tobacco leaves, black pepper, light lemon. Palate is oily, thick. A little heavy on the residual sugars for me but very nice nonetheless.
