Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, brown, mostly diminishing. Body is black (utterly opaque, flashlight tested). Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (roasted grain, chocolate), with light notes of vanilla, tobacco. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic.
Wow, two completely opaque stouts in a row, what are the odds? This one’s a bit better than the River North, certainly in the mouth, where the flavor balance is quite drinkable. Not particularly imperial or exciting, but decent enough. TizzleJizzle (791) - Garland, Texas, USA - SEP 5, 2015
On draft at Craft and Growler. Poured black with a khaki head and tons of lacing. Taste of dark roasted malts, boozy, oak, vanilla esters, and molasses. Average carbonation, full bodied with thick texture. Fantastic brew! johnnnniee (4285) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 13, 2015
Bottle shared last night at the meeting.
Solid black color, roasty chocolate and earth, nice stout!

Smell is dark malt and dark chocolate. Taste is heavy roast with dark chocolate and malt. Medium carbonation, full body, and mild foam. commonmac (1223) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 21, 2015
Large bottle with commonshawn and rosskyle. Poured into snifter glass. Blackish. Head was shy initially but picked up a little bit...still smaller than anticipated. Aroma has chocolate and roasted malt qualities plus a lot of peat action. Taste is mostly bitter with the sweetness of chocolate disappearing. Bourbon and peat characteristics are prevalent. Definite alcohol presence. Not a heavy finish or mouthfeel but it’s clearly a stout. Typically not an imperial stout fan but this one is pretty decent. I would appreciate more sweetness. commonshawn (1224) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 21, 2015
Big bottle from Haskells with commonmac and rosskyle. Nearly black with fairly smooth tan head. Strong sweet roasted malt nose. Roasted and dry. Dry dark chocolate bitter and roasted malt. Coffee, chocolate, a bit creamy but not as sweet as it smelled. Coffee and bitter chocolate aftertaste lasts. A good beer but not really my style . They do that one note very well though. rosskyle (682) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 21, 2015
Very dark appearance. Medium head and laceing. Coffee and smoke aroma. Cocoa coffee flavor. Smooth texture.
