On draft. Dense black pour, with a thick brown head. Huge roast, char, bitter dark chocolate, some dark molasses, notes of fig, charred sooty malt, bitter hops, and finishes mostly dry. Surprised me, it’s so good. One of the best imperial stouts I have had in a long time. ChurchLady (19) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - APR 15, 2014
Tap at Pizza Port Bressi Ranch with GT2. Dark pour, rich head. Nose isn’t super assertive- coffee, cocoa. Taste is fairly bitter, extremely smooth and bitter dark chocolate, coffee. Perhaps the smoothest beer I’ve ever had. Great soft carbonation. Bitter aftertaste. I could get sloshed in this one. rlgk (18844) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 15, 2014
Draught at Pizza Port, Bressi Ranch, San Marcos. Pitch black beer with a nice lasting offwhite/beige head. Roasted malt aroma, chocolate, hay, soot, leather notes, cocoa powder, licorice, tar, bitter coffee. Hoppy roasted flavor, coffee, tar, licorice, soot, some burnt wood, vanilla notes, peat, floral, some caramel. Full bodied and really great! biggirlpanties (204) - Oceanside, California, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Tap at Bressi Ranch many times, full pints. Inky pour, deeper color than night rider. Better head retention, rocky dark foam. Aroma is melted dark chocolate, rich cocoa, mild roast, piney and grilled mango hops. Taste is much richer and spicier, hoppier than night rider. More in the bells expedition area. Long, bitter palate that is close to imperial black ipa. Really boss, one of if not the best dark beer from Pizza port.
