COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A massive wall of flavor and so dark it actually absorbs light – at least we think it does! A deeply rich and complex Russian Style Imperial Stout brewed with no less than 10 different malts is the backbone. We brewed this one with oats to add an additional layer of silkiness along with a healthy dose of locally roasted coffee to make this a truly amazing beer. Sip slowly with a friend and enjoy the rich flavors. 1.111 O.G.

Big bold black pour. Creamy brown head. Light smoke, roast, molasses, charred wood, asphalt, tar. Flavor is really bold. Incredibly creamy. Tar, smoke, dark chocolate, wow. Great beer from a new brewery.

From the bottle, black pour and tan head. chocolatey, roasty on the aroma with some oakiness. Taste is dark chocolate and tasty. Great brew!

Thanks to Dak for sharing. The 22oz bomber pours inky darkness with nice mocha colored head of foam. The aroma is pleasing and inviting with dark malt roastiness, slightly burnt yet moist chocolate fudge and dark roasted coffee. Alright! The taste delivers rich creamy goodness across the palate by unloading tons of dark roasted malts to fully burnt malt (but not so much so as to be ashy) heaven with layers of chocolate fudge and freshly crushed dark roasted oily coffee beans. I hardly notice the huge ABV of this beer. Goodness gracious. Dy-no-mite!! I would love to see how they top this world class offering.

Enjoyed out of a bomber fresh from the brewery into a snifter. Pours jet black with very heavy aroma of chocolate and smells very roasty. Starts very creamy and finishes very cleanly despite the thickness of the beer itself. Additionally, the taste of alcohol is very well hidden and almost unnoticeable, making a very sweet and very drinkable stout. Very top notch.

Bottle courtesy of Mashmaster. Sweet chocolate, smoky, coffee, earthy oat, and prune aroma. Viscous black pour with a large creamy brown head. Roasty coffee, char/ash, sweet chocolate, earthy oat flavor with a roasty bitter finish. Full creamy body, soft carbonation - very silky and smooth. Alcohol well hidden. Very nicely done.

22oz bottle. Poured a black color, with brown edges, and an off white head. Roast, some smokiness, molassess, chocolate, and some coffee in the finish. Alcohol content well hidden. Enjoyed this one!
