Bottle. Thin black with a minimal tan head. Aroma is molasses and coffee. Flavour is sweet dark fruit, coffee, jam on a thick velvet base. HonusWagner (2168) - Florida, USA - DEC 25, 2013
Has nice orange peel note from the challenger, medium sweetness, fairly bitter, medium-thick body, bit of a cocoa character, good stuff. RumRunner101 (918) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 24, 2013
Black pour with brown head. Aroma is rich, slightly sweet, with dark chocolate and coffee. Big and boozy with dark chocolate, coffee, toasted malts. Finishes on a bitter note and lingers with hot alcohol. I don’t think this is quite ripe enough. Sunni05 (33) - Florida, USA - DEC 24, 2013
Nice and thick as you sip it. Hints of chocolate in the nose. Explodes on the palate with coffee and dark chocolate notes. There's a bit of bitterness from the hops...very tasty.

The Narwhal pours opaque black with an orange rim, essentially motor oil. The bouquet intermixes prunes, dark chocolate, dried figs, cherry cordials and Chambord. Absurdly rich and thick, it gives new definition to "full-bodied." The palate boasts bitter with espresso grounds, fermented fruit and chocolate bars with 85% cocoa! Admirably complex but overbearing, unapproachable. ---- instagram.com/pintofbitter

Very nice imperial stout. Smooth and slightly sweet. Again SN makes a beer that is approachable yet not boring. Well done. jimhilt (2610) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 23, 2013
Pours a four finger tan head that slowly fades leaving a good lace. Black color, no highlights. Medium carbonation and medium-heavy bodied. Roasted coffee nose and flavor is roasted coffee, higher ABV is hidden. $2.60 for a 12oz bottle from a Tully’s Beer & Wine Wells, ME. ROGUE (2215) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - DEC 23, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a pitch black color with a thick light espresso head and light lacing. Smell of cocoa, espresso, some dark fruitiness, and alcohol. Taste of cocoa and coffee lead the way with more dark fruit than burnt molasses, making this not as sweet as other Imperial Stouts. Finish is a lasting char, smoke, roast and hops. Very smooth and creamy, medium body, lighter carbonation. badgerben (5188) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Pitch black color with a small head. Aroma of dark chocolate, light spearmint, and roasted barley. Wood, vanilla and roast flavors dominate. Solid coffee. Very thick. Nische (2240) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 22, 2013
Pours thick and black with a full two fingers of beautiful creamy tan head. Rich malty toffee aroma. Malt sweetness with lots of roasted coffee character and just a touch of smokiness. Thick, rich mouthfeel with a warming alcohol finish.
