Oh boy, I am so excited to have this beer....thank you bestiefan2k for sharing! Very dark, thick and chewy. Delicious...dark chocolate truffles and cream....decadent. I am surprised to learn that its not an imperial oatmeal stout because of its well-balanced sweetness. The perfect roastiness, finishes with a pleasant warming sensation.

Bottle from Premier Gourmet from a couple years back. Thick malt and roast, more sweet than bitter but still bitter. Nothing outstanding in aroma, would have liked a good roast and coffee nose. A solid beer though more middle of the pack in this great category.

Sample at GABF 10/08/2016, thanks to my sis for assistance with note-taking. Inky black color with a medium tan head that diminishes gradually. Small patches of lace. Malt, chocolate and coffee aroma. Full-bodied with flavors of charred malt, coffee and fudge. The finish is roasty with a malt and coffee aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Rating #2232 - 2015.12.08 - Bottle #8 in the 2015 Craft BeerAdvent Calendar Beautiful dark brown pour with a fairly foamy tan head with mild lacing. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, espresso. Taste is bubbly mouth feel, bold earth and coffee layered with hints of vanilla and chocolate. Decent earthy, roasty bitterness rounds out a superb IS.

Imperial stouts are a tough category since even the average are quite good. This one is better than average while still failing to rise above the crowd. Chocolate and coffee, not too sweet. Delicious but not exceptional.

Ce liquide noir me semble assez visqueux lorsque vers dans ma tulipe. La tte brune accompagne les premires gorges. Au nez, les malts noirs fument lgrement tandis que se dgage des parfums de rglisse, de chocolat et de torrfaction. Au got, lalcool vient arrondir le jeu malt. Cacao, rglisse, crales rties forment un trio apprcie par mes papilles. En bouche, le corps liquoreux et velout senroule autour de ma langue et lenvote. En finale, le cacao riche est frapp par une amertume de grains torrfis et par une petite chaleur qui rveille les sens.
