UPDATED: SEP 12, 2006 Pours a black red with a chocolate malt aroma. Alcohol is fairly noticable. Very bitter and full of chocolate, caramel, molasses, and heavy roasted flavors. The alcohol is a bit too heavy, but otherwise an excellent brew.

thegreenrooster (4148) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 3, 2005
Pour is a jet black with no head. Aroma is a stong chocolate and coffee with a touch of alcohol. Flavor is bitter chocolate with a touch of vanilla. The aroma is by far better than the flavor. Not the best impy stout but it has plenty to offer.

bombshelter (349) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 3, 2005
bottle from HEB. mellow aroma for an imperial stout...just hints of roast, bread. black, with big tan head. medium/heavily bodied. the malt is at the fore here, and its great. finish is a mix of warming alcohol and an excellently mild roasty finish. if you are a hardcore imperial stout fan, this might not do it for you, but I quite like it. Just wish there was more in the aroma
