Bottle at SIBF 2012. Smallish dark tan head on a black brew. Dark roasted malts and some cured meats on the nose. Flavor brings coffee and some brown sugar. Really not bad at all!

opened this 12oz bottle, then went to get my glass. OOPS, foam over. Pours black with a light brown head. Aroma is roasty dark malt-cocoa/molasses. Taste is Sour cherry, roasty dark malt-cocoa/molasses, earthy hops. Lively carbonation for the style. Dont think they were trying for a chocolate covered cherry...

12oz bottle. Lively gushing pour. Opaque brown-black with a rusty orange head. Pretty well balanced and drinkable Imperial Stout. A solid milk chocolate flavor, with a respectable hop balance. Big and rich, but not quite overbearing and undrinkable. Some light coffee tones, dry bitterness. Thick and hefty, a solid offering.

Draft. Black, dirty brown head. Aroma of powdery cocoa and coffee grounds. Taste is smooth coffe and chocolate. Light body. Not bad.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 26, 2012
Bottle:   Black, large frothy beige head, spotty lacing.   Faint roastiness, otherwise a bit mealy with a sour fruitiness.   Up front its a metallic sourness that is hard to get past.   Backside reminds me of stale fruit, earthy wood crates, astringent metallic rusty nail like flavors.   There is a roastiness from start to finish, but holy piss is this not only metallic and sour, its like bile.   Yeah, pouring this sh*t out.   Avoid at all costs!

BeerandBlues2 (13323) - Escondido, California, USA - MAY 23, 2012
Tap. Pours opaque with a small, fizzy tan head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is peat, roast and chocolate malt, prunes and licorice with earthy and alcohol notes. Flavor is malt dominant, almost syrupy sweet, light peat and smoke malt with a sweet finish. Full body and medium carbonation.

Tap. Pours opaque black with average, creamy tan head; short retention and spare lacing. Aroma is very muted; hints of plums, roasted malt, grassy notes, and faint plastic. Flavor is roast malt forward without much else there; dry finish with a hint of chocolate. Medium body, low carbonation, and medium warmth.

3.1
poisoneddwarf (2511) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - MAY 20, 2012
Bomber. I bought this beer so I could get Nevada on the map. Aroma is kind of garbagey. There are some pleasant obligatory impy stout aromas present here, such as licorice, molasses and leather, but the first scent to hit these nostrils was garbage. After sitting for awhile, the odor mostly goes away, leaving just the good stuff. Pours black with red edges; has a dissipating tan head that fades to a collar and skiff of foam. Taste is a little off, too. It’s nice and roasty, and the licorice flavor is nice, but there’s a gritty chalkiness to it. The body is thin for the style. This is pretty subpar but it’s drinkable, at least.

3.4
arkurzynski (2427) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 19, 2012
Bottle shared by motortoddhead. Deep brown, almost black pour. Dark fruit, caramel, and roasted malt. Flavor is light roast with acidic dark fruit. Slightly tangy finish. Some lingering fruit and roast.
