An absolute monster stout. Beautiful pour, used motor oil with a reddish-tan head. Potent nose with a bold array of earthy tones. Rich, velvety mouthfeel, and a balanced coffee flavor. The heavy ABV doesn't result in a boozy taste, which is both nice and dangerous.

Yum yum. A really nice malty imperial stout that had a great palate. A quality brew that let’s you barely know that this is not your normal imperial stout. Great brew. Fantastic. Cavie (4805) - Arlington, Texas, USA - OCT 31, 2013
Tap at Zios. Pours a super black color with a tall tan head. Very bready in appearance. Aroma is chocolatey, dark roasted malts, vanilla and oak. Flavor is much the same with a nice finish of roasted chocolate malt. Very tasty. The high ABV will get to you quickly though.

Bottle. Pours an inky black with a small tan head. Rich aroma, of toasted malt, caramel, wood, nuts. Taste is huge and complex, toasted malt, bourbon, brown sugar, wood, nuts, rye, dark chocolate, vanilla, and ends rather boozy. Lingering rich brown sugar, bourbon, and malt. Delicious, big stout. jandd1983 (4577) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - OCT 28, 2013

Rating from notes. 22 oz. bottle pours a rich dark hershey brown with a moderate tan head. Aroma is . . . different but not necessarily in a bad way. Nutty, with lots of oak and vanilla, touches of spice, some chocolate covered banana and burnt toast. Flavor is a bit overwhelming to the senses, with lots of bitterness derived from pine, roast, burnt wood notes. Touches of spice and bourbon, with some wheat, cloves, and chocolate notes. There is also a mildy nutty sweetness and leather as well. Oily mouthfeel, full bodied, with above average carbonation. This is a kitchen sink beer, and while it’s not bad it’s something I don’t really need to have again. sloth (2936) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - OCT 25, 2013

Smells a bit like bourbon, wood and slightly nutty. Light carb. Head disappears quickly after a hard pour. It tastes very nutty, and oaky up front, with a bourbon and chocolate after taste. It definately has an alcohol bite, but not out of place because of the other strong flavors in the beer. Overall this beer is complex and delicious! Try one
