UPDATED: DEC 16, 2006 Draft at Zenos. Aroma is pretty sweet with a generous head to it that went away quickly. Dark as night stout that keeps almost zero head. Flavor is both fantastic and uncharacteristic at the same time if you can believe it. Very Drinkable! A very good imperial stout ! Cheers!

This was a weird beer for me. I do not know why but it had more of an IPA feel than an imperial stout. It was bitter and certainly dark like a stout however. It wasnt until the last few sips that the chocolate began to come out, and about 8 seconds after my last sip I got a coffee sensation on my palate. Was dry and tasty, i enjoyed it.

Black with a thin brown head. Aroma of sweet choclatey malts. The flavor had a slight bitterness but was still very choclately with a little roasted coffee flavor. Flavor and aroma of alcohol came out as it warmed in the glass. Smooth but felt a little heavy on my tongue after swallowing.

An excellent Imperial Stout, and like the description says, it is very complex and warming. I definetely enjoyed it, but found it a bit too sweet overall. Definetely did not notice the alcohol content at all with this one.

Great colour, rich brown, with a thing head that laces the glass. Nose is nutmeg and chocolate roast. Rummy oak and vanillia cinamon. The entire spice shelf. Flavour is chocolate and vinillia, deep roasted coffee. Bitter dry coffee mouth with an oily texture. Great flavours effectively masked the strong alcohol.

This is the first beer I have rated. Aroma is excellent for a imperial stout; notes of malt, coffee, and charcoal. Very dark in color with slight red tinge when held to light. Poured a thick tan head that slowly dissipates leaving little lacing. Flavor is bitter with charcoal, coffee, and chocolate. Palate is thick with moderate carbonation and some bite on the back of tongue. The thick texture lingers on the tongue giving nice feel. High alcohol content is not noticeable. A great beer.

UPDATED: JUN 1, 2006 Bottle. This beer couldnt live up to the hype for me. Fantastic aroma of chocolate and coffee. Pours jet black with very little beige head that disipates almost immediately. Not particularly creamy. A bit fizzy on the palate. A solid beer, but perhaps just a bit overrated for my preferences.

This is what an Imperial Stout should be!! Thick and black...chocolate, roasted malts and coffee jump through your nose. Very little head. Flavor is full of the coffee, malts and chocolate. Medium bodied with a nice mouthfeel. Finishes off with a little hopyy bitterness.

12oz bottle... rich and creamy. Very strong coffee overtones with a little chocolate and dark fruit. Not bad at all. Will drink again any day.
