Impressive that this is small beer from the second Runnings of their Imperial Stout. A good salad traditional Stout. Nothing special or remarkable just solid. markwise (5441) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 4, 2017
Bottle courtesy of my buddy SHIG. Cheers, Shawn! Pours a stout brown with a thin tan head. Nose is roast, earth, cocoa powder, molasses, acrid coffee, and pumpernickel bread. Flavor is similar with roast, earth, old coffee, cola, mild veggies, and earthy bitterness. Medium in body for the style and pretty outstanding for a second runnings beer.

On tap at Haymaker NYC pours a opaque black with some creamy tan head. Nose has heavy molasses and heavy burnt toast, some odd vanilla, heavy licorice. Flavor is all licorice, some bbq sauce, burnt toast, burnt caramel. Full bodied and sweet on the finish. Heavy handed. tia (2228) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - SEP 21, 2016
Bottle from Brown Jug Fairbanks. Almost black with tan head. Smells of dark fruit and dark bread and chocolate. Flavor is roasty, dark chocolaty, and dry.

On tap @ Tørst. This is a pretty darn dark one. Really dark brown in the glass and a tall lasting dark chocolate brown lacing head in the top. Smells really different. It has that roastiness it’s supposed to have, but it’s also agave I fused with cacti and some sort of sweetish liquor. Some coffee, semi sweet chocolate chips, some alcohol and old coffeehouse. Like it. So East to drink this. It’s light, near fluffy and creamy in the mouth. Chocolaty and velvety. Traces of milk chocolate and latte. The aftertaste gives lots of mild licorice that lingers on. Lots of flavor wrapped in a lightdrinkable beer. 15.06.2015 jbruner (5121) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - APR 23, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2017 Pours a deep brownish black from the bomber with thin tan head that leaves light lace. Aroma of oxidized chocolate malts and earth. Taste follows, clean, but a bit too old. Solid though. klm1 (1780) - Bled/SF, - MAR 5, 2016
From City beer store SF:
Pours black color, clear, with unstable light brown head, which immediately transforms itself to a ring around the glass. Visually low carbonation. Aroma: very, very fresh fruity aroma, which takes on blueberry, plums, prunes, resins, with dark malts, which takes on coffee, dark and milk chocolate, hint of honey, vanilla, oak, toffee, yoghurt...
Similar is flavor: very intense, with notes of espresso coffee, cocoa nibs, cocoa powder, hint of dark chocolate, supported with hop flavors, which takes on dark fruits, which I mentioned yet before.
Finish is sticky dry. Body is medium, texture silky soft, carbonation is low. BeerandBlues2 (13695) - Escondido, California, USA - FEB 10, 2016

Flavor is bitter dark chocolate, roast malt, earthy hops and medium bitterness, prunes and a dry finish. Full body and medium carbonation. gregwilsonstl (2613) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 7, 2016
Chocolate. Tobacco after taste. Tasted side by side with Beserker. They are quite a bit different. Beserker is thicker, sweeter, and did I mention thicker? Both are really good. Tanner head. Thx AkAndy.
