Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks zvikar. Black with a light brown head. Roasty aroma, a bit burnt, with coffee beans and dark chocolate. Roasty burnt flavor with coffee and a bitter finish, roasty, hoppy, a bit herbal. Rather full-bodied, kinda silky. Sevenlee (1846) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - SEP 10, 2013
Pours totally black with a black head. Aroma is malt, roasted notes, caramel, chocolate, coffee, liquorice and some hops. Taste is medium to high sweet leading to a roasty finish. Good one! DedicatedToFun (4000) - Santa Monica, California, USA - SEP 3, 2013
Awesome imperial stout on tap at the brewery in san diego, dark, chocolate, malts, rich, creamy kathouse (1930) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - SEP 3, 2013
Deep in color with a matching dark foam. Head smells like chocolate and dust. Dies down quickly. Nice roasted malt flavor with sticky red and purple fruits in the finish.

651 ml. bottle. Pours a thick, well retained, brown head, with slight lacing, over a clear brown black (SRM 35) body......nose is heavy roasted malts, with chocolate dominating coffee, light dried fruits, including plum, raisin, hints of toffee/caramel, light hop spice....taste is heavy chocolate, lighter coffee from the roasted malts, light plum, raisin, berries, brown sugar sweetness, leading to a moderate, earthy, spicy hop lingering, bitter, finish....mouth feel thick, creamy, quite sticky, minimal astringency, alcohol warmth present, carbonation adds to creamy sensations. This is a huge, rich, nicely balanced example of this heavy style. It is a bit on the sweet end of the spectrum, which could be balanced by a bit of umami.

Pitch black pour. Very thin tan head. Big and complex. Lots of flavor. Oily mouthfeel. Smooth though. ReverendMoon (155) - Illinois, USA - AUG 23, 2013
Bomber, near room temp (chilled for just a couple hours). The first actual thing that happened when I poured this beer and saw its color and head was me unconsciously saying "wow, oh my god." It is that rich and impressive. Tastes and smells of coffee and chocolate, immensely satisfying. Really glad I decided to pick this up. Great SoCal beer. tgncc (3140) - Bellmore, New York, USA - AUG 23, 2013
The aroma is coffee, chocolate. The appearance is dark black, tan head. The flavor is chocolate, licorice, coffee, cream, roast, very nice. The finish is sweet, then roasty, and pine. Medium/thick to thick in body. Very good.
