Bottle in trade from abents. Thanks! Pours dark brown to black with beige short lived head. Smell i s fudge, and light chocolate and maybe vanilla. Taste is nutty, a touch of thin chocolate, light bitterness and alcohol. No way this is 12%, still. Incredibly thin body for an imperial stout. Like water...Medium amount of carbonation. Nothing offensive, but this is way too thin to be an imperial stout. Justinsvt (9) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 10, 2009 does not count
Pours to a very dark brown bodt with a thin light tan head. The aroma is sweet milk chocolate, blondies, vanilla. The flavor is sweet milk chocolate, blondies, vanilla. Quite good. The palate is creamy, medium bodied, nice texture. phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 20, 2009
It’s about time! Pours a pitch black colour with a very small brown head. Aroma is nutty, smokey, dark roasted malts and burned toast on the nose. Taste is awesome- once it hits your lips it tastes so good! Down like a piece of chocolate chip ice cream. Creamy, smooth and full of smokey flavors. noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 6, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2009 Imperial dry stout. Ink black pour. The beige head is thin but what’s there is retained well. Aroma of dust and ash, and oddly, grape soda. Flavor is dusty, ashen, heavily roasted. There’s sweetness here, but in the vein of a horehound or licorice candy. Thin bodied but interesting palate: warming and cooling sensations fight it out to a draw.

Bottle. Pours a black body with a reddish hues with a white head. Sweet chocolate, licorice, vanilla, light coffee bitterness, with a huge sweet alcohol warming. Wood with a hint of maple. 00cobraR (1103) - Greensboro, North Carolina, USA - NOV 1, 2008
not bad. pours out a dark brown color with a small head. aroma was that of roasted malt, and choco. Flavor was the same but rather thin. it was missing something. alcohol was not present. ross (2146) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - NOV 1, 2008
Bottle from Ryan. 12% ? Wtf. No way is this beer 12. Anwyay, dark color tan head, the works. Smells full of coffee and chocolate with some roasted malts in there as well.. Taste is sweet, like chocolate, thin on the mouthfeel, and has no alcohol detected in the least. 12 percent I think not. If it is, I am shocked becuase this thing tastes no more alcoholic than a budweiser. Good beer though/ KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 18, 2008
Dark color. Smell of malt, alcohol, chocolate, caramel, minor dark fruit and some coffee. Taste of roasted malt, chocolate, brown sugar, caramel, coffee, alcohol, hops and minor pine. Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - AUG 11, 2008
Pours a dark but translucent cola brown color. A small, foamy, cream colored head settles to a thin film that lasts, with fine sheets of lacing marking the glass. Aromas are heavily roasted and bittersweet, barley, baker’s chocolate and scorched caramel showing well. There’s also an oatmeal like creaminess, as well as a healthy dose of robust, earthy hops. Flavors follow suit, showing both roasty and creamy elements. Bitter chocolate, burnt caramel malts, barley, oatmeal, and bitter, woody, earthy notes all play nicely together. The body is substantial, but a little light for an imperial. Carbonation levels are moderate and balanced. The finish is ultra-long and roasty. This feels like an 8% beer, not a 12%. I enjoyed this one. Sure, it’s not your every day imperial, but it’s pretty darn nice, and unique to boot.
