Bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with a smallish light tan head on there. Nose has some strong roasting with a slight bit of caramel in there, and some subtler sour dark fruits to it. Taste is extremely roasty with some slight caramel/toasty sweetness to it underneath. Really very drinkable. Westmeister (2129) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 31, 2012
Draft. Pours a dark black with some offwhite head. Smell unfolds a dark roastedness, some chocolate, some hops and known sweetness. Taste reveals dark and milk chocolate, some ripe dark fruit, roasted malts with a medium bitter finish and some lingering sweetness. Overall, I thought this was a very nice but perhaps not as full-bodies as I would of liked.

22 oz. 2014 bottle served in a goblet.
Pours clear dark reddish-brown; dark enough to look essentially black and opaque in the glass. Modest size head that is semi-durable and leaves little lacing.
Aroma: chocolate, spicy hops, molasses and dark roasted grains.
Flavor: simple but solid, with moderate strength and very good balance. Hop presence peaks mid-taste.
Feel: full body with well chosen, near medium carbonation. 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.

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. bhensonb (15194) - 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. 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.

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. Suttree (6385) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 30, 2012
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.
