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.

Bottle-This beer poured almost black with hints of red when held to light.Very good looking beer with light tan head. Has a subtle coffee aroma with the taste to match. Nice medium body and smooth considering the the 8.9%. Finishes great. MMMM..... Delicious.

light finish,soft carbonation, crispy-smooth texture, medium body, burnt-butter notes, some toasted raisins, tan head, leather black, finishes quickly, medium body with windy a vaporizing texture. Overall great stout. Can hardly tell that its 8.9% very smooth not too much malt and not too dry very well balanced.

[bottle from State Line Liquors] Not quite opaque black--blood red can be seen when the beer is held in front of a light source. Fuzzy tan flanel blanket remained for a while over the top. Estery aroma bursting with lychees and some strawberry. Melanoidins and a touch of fusel oils--only faint wafts of dark malt in the nose (howd they do that!?). Quite ethanolic flavour balanced with a healty dose of roast and sweet malt. Everything is in excellent balance: significant malt and hops bitterness / residual sweetness / roasty flavour / alcohol. Medium to full body with moderate warming from alcohol and modest carbonation. The roasty bitterness lingers with some of the lychee character.
