Thanks to Exiled for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma is a mix of cocoa, soy and alcohol. The flavor is chocolate and burnt malt. I also get a little coffee but it is the chocolate and malt that dominate this beer. Medium mouthfeel and low carbonation. Not a bad imperial stout, but not as good as some others I have tried. thirdeye11 (6162) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 29, 2010

Pours black with a thin brown head that fades away pretty quickcly. Notes of chocolate liqueur, milk chocolate and a bit of fruitiness (black cherry) on the nose. Medium body, low carbonation, a little bit on the thin side for an IS. Flavors are dominated by bitter chocolate, oatmeal or roasted grain and the finish is a little bit roasty with a hint of tar/ash in the finish. Aftertaste is ashy as well.
Not bad, not stellar at all. Would have like more depth and defenitely more body in there. bu11zeye (13239) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAR 29, 2010

Almost a black pour. I will rate this highly because my Son’s name is Josh...and its good! Chocolate and hoppy aroma with some nice dark roast and light coffee. Flavor has a nice bitter roast, hops and chocolate. Good stuff. Great name! Ughsmash (7502) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 11, 2010
Bomber. Poured deep brown with a fluffy, well-presented cap of medium brown head. The aroma picked up sweet chocolates, toasted oats, and vanilla with biscuity accents and no apparent alcohol.. seriously, this was like candy. The flavor opened with milk chocolates, vanilla, and something like smoke light (the most approachable smoke you’ll ever find in a beer), with some molasses joining blended chocolates at the core.. bitterness was light and cocoa-inspired.. vanilla, chocolate, and brighter, treacle-tinged earth on the finish. Medium-bodied with lots of residual sugars all around.. extra-sweet.. light roast, toasty, and smoke.. probably the strongest complement for this beer is that it was effortless to drink (which may prove dangerous).
