Pours a finger of head on a black body.
The aroma is licorice, dark chocolate and roasted malt.
The taste is roasted malt, chocolate bitterness and finishes with alcohol heat.
The texture is softer.
A fine stout. Dodgrblu (751) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 2, 2014

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2015 "A little on the tame side for an imperial stout, but still a solid brew. Love the style, like the beer. Licorice, malted chocoalte, roasted malt, just all in smaller quantity than the norm for the style. Easy drinking for a high abv beer, though. They should barrel THIS one :) Nitro. 2014-Funny. I didn’t realize I’d had this before and as we’re drinking the bottle I was wondering how this would be on nitro. Bigger chocolate and hops outta the bomber. 3.5 nitro tap...3.7 bottle. 7.8%, but the body is nice for a lighter IRS."
on tap at the source 2015 - not very imperial at all with a rubbery aftertaste. 3.0 at best. larryLSB (533) - La Selva Beach, California, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Bomber. picked up at the brewpub for me by my wife on a gf’s trip. Poured a dark brown with a small tan head, Nose was milk chocolate, more oif a milk stout tham an Impy Stout. Sweet taste, mildly bitter, medium bodied with a nice finish. Overall a good stout. Bule (2166) - California, USA - AUG 20, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Pours a thick black color with a fine head on top. More of a sweet stout than an imperial stout. Very fine balance of sweetness hops and roasted malt. Enjoyable after meal beer.

On draft at the SF beer week opening celebration. It pours dark brown with a tan head. The aroma is roasted malt with some burnt toast and mild notes of cocoa. Smells a bit young... The flavor is dry and roasted with a medium body and nice notes of chocolate and treacle. Very nice.
