UPDATED: DEC 2, 2006 This was on the weaker end of the Imperial Stout style. It lacked the huge fruitiness and other characteristics of the bigger Imperial stouts, but I donít think that is what it was going for. It came off as a kicked up Dry Irish Stout, and it was very good at doing that. It was dark, but not quite opaque, but it had this dense, generous dark tan head that was just gorgeous. A good amount of roast and chocolate was there. This is quite the tasty stout.

A good offering from the guys at Max Lagers. Poured opaque witha nice tan head flavor was predominently a chocolate coffee. Lots of roasted character.

Suttree (6325) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 22, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2004 Surprisingly good. Black and totally opaque. Small tan head. Smoky, toasty aroma. Full and rich, it has a burnt toast, coffee, and some dark chocolate flavors, too. Well made and impressive. Sampled at the Great Atlanta Pub Crawl, 2004.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 22, 2004
Sample glass, RateBeer Southeastern Gathering. Dark chocolate, oats, espresso, molasses aroma. Slightly chalky. Deep black body with a nice and lasting tan head. A little thin on the flavor (think Bert Grantís). Sweet with a nice roasty bitterness. Not as much hops as I would like. Medium body, watery/creamy texture, lively carbonation. The bottom line is: a pretty good offering from a typically underwhelming brewer.

I was quite impressed with Max Lagers. This one sloooowly poured a dark black with a tan head. Very thick bodied. Flavor was chocolate, coffee, mocha, and oatmeal. Yet another great beer on the Atlanta pub crawl!

Pours black with a tan head. This is very full bodied but still seems thin in the flavor. Somewhat oily mouthfeel. Nicely hopped. A nice beer.
