This is one of my favorite beers of all time and actually turned me onto the darkest of the dark beers. sloshgator (741) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 24, 2014
Sweetwater Happy Ending is a fantastic stout and Imperial, too. Caramel aroma (like a Coke) of a dark pour and nice tan head. Taste has notes of caramel (again like Coke) with more moderate chocolate and coffee. Finish has a bit of sweetness. Happy Ending is just that. stewajt (30) - Alabama, USA - MAR 21, 2012
Blast of hops and malt on the nose. Lamp black in color. Can literally distinguish between hops and malt on this beer. Very toasty and malty, but also fresh and clean thanks to the dry hopping. 2012 is definitely the best year yet. Cellars like a champ! njnut (486) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAY 4, 2016
Pours black with moca head, thick body. French roast coffee aroma, coca, burnt malts. Taste is coffee and dark chocolate. Alcohol hidden. A bit rough but that’s what I loved about it. UGADAWG (3) - USA - FEB 13, 2007 does not count
This is a close second to SW Festive beer. Very thick and tasty. Excellent on a cold winter night.

Pours with a light tan head, not much head at first but once it sits for a moment the head just kind of appears. Aromas of dark malts and grassy hops. Really nice attack, a little bitter at first, then it mellow and a kind of carmel and light hop flavor takes off, finishes dry and with a nice hop tartiness. Over all a very nice beer. Plus it comes in one seriously stout flip top bottle, totally awesome for homebrewing with once you are finished! BeeriedEyed (211) - USA - JAN 19, 2011
Great imperial stout. Not very roasty but very tasty. You can really taste the fruitiness and the floral notes more than the roasty chocolate notes that are more present in an imperial. Great brew. thebos (35) - Eatonton, Georgia, USA - JAN 16, 2014
Pours black with tan head. Smells good...roasted coffee and cocoa with fairly strong hoppy tart scent as well. Taste is very nice. Good dark stout with great bitter hop finish. Well balanced beer. williamherbert (1544) - Syracuse, New York, USA - AUG 31, 2009
The appearance is a thick chocolate-brown head, with little bubbly pockmarks; just massive. The beer is dark, dark brown-black; completely opaque. Looks like a Big Beer. Spiderweb of lace.
The smell is sweet hops, tangerine and blood oranges. The hops also have some sweet pine. Balanced with a roasted black malt. The hops are superior.
The taste is a very dark burnt-cookie malt; rich and burnt. The hops are a sweet, rich, fruity balance. The flavors are disparate but they are harmonious.
The feel is a dry malt, with an oily-wet hop feel. Overall, it’s incredibly bitter, uncommonly sweet. I’ve had few stouts with this level of hops, and they make all the difference. SabreSkull (56) - North Augusta, South Carolina, USA - MAR 4, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2012 Growler fill from Sundrees. Big thick chocolate pour and great coffee and dark cocoa tastes, with mild hoppy finish. Creamy mouthfeel; almost a dessert beer. Hope to get more before their keg runs out. Edit: got more, heh heh. A heavy sipping beer that just feels good in your mouth.
