DATE: July 24, 2016... OCCASION: a HOT summer day turns to a night of AC that will pair well with this stout... GLASSWARE: Duvel snifter... this "monster beer" pours a pitch-black body, a ring of brown, thin, bubbly head, and a nebula swirl in its middle... with the weighty alcohol content, this is a good-looking beer... robust espresso brine--like damp or dank decaff--blams the nostrils, with oatmeal and rum-like ethanol... a lively, instantaneously warming impact accompanies the smooth, creamy body that is beyond sippable for the power it packs... halfway through, the beer continues to deliver a stunning combination of peat, smoke and salty oatmeal with an intense chocolate and coffee bean punch... having trouble finding holes in this profile.. perhaps the only regret is this isn’t a bomber.... from its name to its label, from its impact to its flavor, quite impressive... I would seek this out again in a heartbeat, and what a boon from a breakpack mix... Mark_Eck (1998) - - JUL 16, 2016

Pours a deep dark brown with a nice tan head. Chocolate/espresso aromas. Tastes just like it smells, deep coffee and chocolate flavors. Excellent!!!

Pours black with almost no head. Nose is not too strong - some coffee. Taste is great - black licorice, some coffee, and some bitter hops that linger (in a good way) for a while. Alcohol well hidden. Really good beer.

On tap at Kickbacks. Pours black with a thin tan head. Aromas of chocolate and coffee with some malt sweetness also. Taste the same with some caramel flavor dark fruit and licorice. Very nice complex beer. Medium to thick mouth feel. altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - MAR 19, 2016

12 ounce bottle. Opaque brown black color topped by a small creamy tan head. Aroma is subtle; roasted malt and rich dark roast coffee come to mind. First sip is sweet roasted malt and strong coffee. Rich silky mouthfeel. Midtaste has dark chocolate and warming alcohol notes. Finish is bittersweet with hints of licorice and resiny hops. This is a big brew with smooth flavor and complex integrated flavor throughout. One of the best American-made Imperial Stouts I have tasted. Definitely worth seeking out. cards04 (2850) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 8, 2016
Pours pitch black. Big tan head. Aromas are massive coffee. Really good quality coffee. Aromas of cold coffee, dark fruit, sugar, vanilla, bubblegum. Tastes like cold coffee with sugar. Really tasty.
