jb (3190) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUL 1, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2006 This was one fine beer. Dark black with red notes and a tan head that kept reappearing. The palate is the best part of this, very satisfying mouthfeel and complexity of tastes. Nose of raspberries, chocolate and coffee. Tastes strongly of chocolate, with some alcohol and dark fruit. Subtle finish, not an overpowering one. As far as imperials go, Stone is still the best Ive had, more complexity, but this one is the best beer Ive ever had for the money.

A black beverage; the smallest red dot when held up to the light. More caramel than coffee, if coffee at all. Full body, creamy, average carbonation, long lingering hoppy finish. Cannot believe its 9% ABV... untastable.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2006 Dark Chocolate and Roast Coffee. As Black as my soul. Its tastes smokey (which is good) molassas and maltiness. Just enough alcholol to let you know its beer - well balanced

Superb stout! I had this one as my desert at Birreria Paradiso in Georgetown (DC), and boy was I impressed. Poured very smooth with almost no head. Color was a thick, opaque black. Great aroma a coffee and malts. The flavor and mouthfeel were to die for -- exceptionally smooth and well-balanced (esp. with North Coasts addition of some rather bitter hops, I think). Overall, one of the best stouts Ive tasted yet. Two thumbs up!

Holy be-jesus I love this beer. Perfect jet black body with a thin lacey head. Lots of coffee and chocolate on the nose with a little alcohol. More alcohol taste than in the nose. Lots of espresso bitterness and more malt and chocolate...very creamy on the palate. Extreamly excelent.

vyvvy (6342) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 24, 2006
Pours black with a dark tan head - it looks like oil with a beer head. Aromas is sweet with dark chocolate, cream and light roast. Full bodied beer with soft carbonation. Initial taste has rich malt, dark chocolate and a pleasant roast character. Finish brings a spruce-like hoppiness to the beer. Hard to believe the ABV is 9%, it is very well hidden. Excellent imperial stout.

chimpscampee (566) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 24, 2006
UPDATED: APR 21, 2007 This is a stout that needs to be served colder than most. I do like the burnt bitterness. Perhaps a tad sweet. Strong chocalate and coffee notes for a stout. You can get a tart dark berry taste on the tip of your tongue.

A Mes rate: Another bottle bought back by Sim from her travels stateside. Couldnt really make my mind up about this one. A cheeky little number there is no doubt. Milk and rich dark chocolate in the nose with a very unusual hint of Coca Cola. Fantastic opaque black red body. Shame about the head, could have been a 5. Lots of stout character with a hard hitting bitter alcoholic finish. Amazing length.

Wow. What an aroma. Raisins is what comes to my mind first. Smells different then most stouts Ive encountered. Scents of chocolate and coffee mix very well in this brew. Bottle, pours black with an off white head, a nice lacing. Very enjoyable to look at. Taste is bitter with a strong alcohol finish. The alcohol is strong in this one, I felt it over powered some of its other qualities, but still a good brew. I plan to pick up more.
