22. Pours black with a dense and creamy tan head. Cardboardy oxidized nose, some roast and chocolate as well. Slick medium body. Soft carb. Chocolatey, cardboardy mid palate. Bookseeb (137) - Wenatchee, Washington, USA - MAR 26, 2013
Appearance is a very dark ruby red having minimal head and lace. Smell of lightly sweet and roasted malt having a dark fruit and hop note. Taste has an overall mellowness having a light balance of sweet, roasted malt and hop with no hint of alchohol. Mouthfeel is medium - light having nice carbonation for the style. An easy drinking imperial stout. AmEricanbrew (6965) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - MAR 13, 2013

Bomber. Poured medium-deep brown with a nice well-retained dark tan head. The aroma picked up sweet, roasty nutty and cocoa malts with accents of vanilla and a kiss of warm, dark fruit.. not terribly complex, but soft and well-balanced. The flavor found moderately-roasted black patent and blended chocolate malts with vanilla bean and complementary smoked malts around.. finished with a lot of grainy roast and a kiss of boozage. Medium-bodied and dry on the palate with a good overall feel and flow.. buttery smooth middle.. this was a solid drinker. boFNjackson (4230) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 8, 2013
Tap @ Fifteenth Ave. Hophouse... Poured dark black with a thin, bubbly, light khaki head. This was off. Infected? Maybe. Tasted of a strong Belgian yeast note with plenty of thinness and esters to support it. Also some diacetyl in the middle which threw it off. Other notes of ash, toasted grains and roast. This one is worth skipping.

Bottle courtesy of curly - Thanks! Black, with a brown head. Smells like prune and raisin mixed with coffee and espresso. Nice full, rich palate. Taste is a bit more coffee and chocolate oriented than the nose would indicate, mixed with some licorice and marshmallow. Dry, red wine-like finish. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUL 8, 2012
Bottle:   Nearly black, cola hued, moderate frothy light beige head, little lacing.   Soft roast, some chocolate and carob aspects, some sweet cocoa too.   Seems like an Imperial Milk Stout, or Sweet Stout.   Hop bitterness comes out a bit on the backside, otherwise moderately malty, sweet, with cocoa and carob notes. &nbps Not a big Imperial Stout by any means.   Some of the recent Imperial Stouts I have had are so far out there in terms of body and aging, that this one seems somewhat ordinary.   Does come across as smooth, not too heavy, body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Seems to grow on me more and more, and at $4 for a 22oz bottle, seems very reasonable.   Cocoa, graham cracker, chocolate, roasted malts, and very pale hop bitterness on the exit.   Sweeter than most.   Very respectable, and on the sweeter chocolatey side. bhensonb (15747) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 28, 2012
Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours black with a creamy tan head. Aroma of smooth burnt malt and chocolate. Full bodied. Flavor is chocolate covering a smooth burnt malt backbone. Got some hop to cover the malt. Goes a bit ashy after a bit. Better than a lot of ISs. BrewDad (5667) - Olympia, Washington, USA - MAR 19, 2012
Dark brown in color, clear with a thin tan head. Nice chocolate and coffee aroma and flavors. Rich and thick this was a very tasty brew. Lots of richness and thick finish. Beerona97 (2399) - Washington, USA - FEB 25, 2012
solid black, creamy tan head. Aroma of roast malt, ashy, toffee, banana, toasted biscuit, fruit, chocolate. Taste is chocolatey sweet, hop and burnt malt bitter. Yeast is pretty evident and a strong flavor in this Imp Stout, which is a little unusual.
