Tap. Opaque with a thick tan head. Very fresh beer. Nose was of coffee, sweet dark chocolate. Taste was of malt, chocolate, vanilla and coffee, great roasted flavor. Creamy and smooth. Great mouthfeel. I would recommend! TAR (2776) - Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina, USA - DEC 24, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2004 Dark prune with ruby sparkles at the bottom of the glass. Thick, rocky light caramel head. Lovely rich chocolatey aroma with oodles of burnt mocha notes, caramel, vanilla, and fudge. Muted candy, Crystal sweetness. Restrained phenolic, vinous, and metallic elements. Soft body. Very fluffy and creamy carbonation. Plethora of malt layers with heavy roast and buttery espresso beans. Perfectly charred notes appear alongside a dash of coconut oil and concord grape. Finishes harmoniously with an intensifying espresso and dried plum mixture. Lingering vinous, vanilla, butter toffee, and fudgy malt notes. Many Imperial Stouts strive to be this flavorful and elegant. Phenomenal dry stout. Retro42 (18) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - JUL 15, 2007
Wonderfully rich chocolate and coffee aroma. Color is almost black with a reddish-brown hue. Pours to a thin tan head that disappeared quickly. Taste is nice, lots of coffee and chocolate with barley notes. Palate is excellent, dryand slightly carbonated. Overall an excellent stout. flutetokill (523) - Fresno, California, USA - DEC 9, 2003
Deep opaque brown color with a beige head. Very rich sweet chocolate covered cherry aroma with a hint of coffee and alcohol. Very nice full flavor, with chocolate, cherry and coffee, and a lightly smokey aftertaste. Kind of a light tingly feel, which I did not expect. Very enjoyable. obisbeer (568) - Barcelona, SPAIN - AUG 5, 2004
Dark as night with thick dark head. Malty dry chocolate nose with some cherry fruit.Rich, thick, mice dry chocolate and burnt toast notes on the palate. Very rich with lingering burnt toast finish. Very nice stout that’s not over the top!

Thanks to hey_kevin for sending this my way! This is a very impressive Stout. Pours the requisite deep dark color with a lasting medim thick light brown head. Nice roasted coffee aroma with a little hops. Warm and pleasant coffee and malt flavor. I really liked this one. raindog (560) - Evansville, Indiana, USA - DEC 4, 2003
Very dark brown. Decent head. Very nice aroma with nuts,burnt caramel,dark malts,and coffee. Medium body. Creamy,oily mouthfeel,and a pretty chewy,fudgy texture. Full flavored,starts with coffee,and burnt malts followed with some roast,caramel,wood flavors. Finish is malty,with a good hop presence and some smoke. Very respectable stout,and one I hope to enjoy again. loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - DEC 9, 2003
Brown, opaque color with a small tan head. The aroma was luscious...cherries, coffee, chocolate, alcohol. The flavor was full and well-rounded...very sweet cherry, chocolate, roasted coffee, slight smokiness, and alcohol in the finish. The feel was not as thick as I wished...crisp on the tongue...wet finish. Very nice stout...impressive. Cartoonkhaki (1300) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 25, 2004
Dark black with dark brown head. An undiscovered gem of wisconsin. Sweet malty coffee hints slight toffee and good caramel. Wow.
