Near black. Grainy nose and flavor shows a little abv, which is weird for an 8.5%er. Dark fruit, roast malt and cocoa/anise. OK overall, lacking for an impy. jgb9348 (6590) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 26, 2016
Deep dark brown coloured body with a thinnish, fast-dying brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, molasses, anise, licorice, alcohol and a bit of coffee. Full-bodied; Strong rich malt flavours with some cereal, alcohol, grain, oak, metal and a bit of earth noticeable. Aftertaste shows the anise and malt the strongest with some nice molasses and deep sugars right behind. Overall, a decent beer that absolutely isn’t anything special, but has some decent flavours and it’s body is okay. Nothing complex, but an average to below-average Imperial Stout, for sure. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Made in Oregon (PDX Terminal C) in Portland, Oregon on 05-May-2015 for US$5,25 sampled at home in Washington on Christmas Day, 25-December-2016. chinchill (5395) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 20, 2016
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. IndianaRed (5127) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 26, 2015
On Tap Black with a small tan head Classic dark orast aromas, Some chocolate and caramel in the flavors. A little metallic at the very end. gregwilsonstl (2711) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 16, 2015

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. harrymel (1551) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 7, 2013
pours black coffee with short lived mocha foam which falls to a sheet of the same for a few dozen seconds. Nose is rich malts, oats, coffee, dark chocolate, some fig and graham. A slight note of rye bread. Flavor is a little less appreciable. Coffee, dry cocoa, graham, toasted grains and some dried figs. A little bit of licorice when cold, but as it warmed, this dissipated. Full bodied with moderate carb and a dry finish. Drinkable, but not something I will make a second purchase on.
Serving type: bottle

On tap. Oddly sweet with very little roasted or chocolate malt flavor. Pretty heavy diacetyl gives it a slick oily mouthfeel. Not a good one
