Great strong taste, everything an imperial stout should be...my favorite thus far, Weyerbacher rules slimjim (106) - New Jersey, USA - APR 17, 2003
A very good Imperial stout. No head, very dark. Not a bad finish either. Coffee like aroma, a very tasty beverage, i love it argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - APR 13, 2003
Pitch body topped by medium mocha head. Aroma is strongly espresso. Taste is coffee bitter with small amount of chocolate that provides a mild sweetness -- alcohol unnoticed. The body is fairly light despite the viscosity of the pour. Ridiculously drinkable for the style and the alcohol content. belgianhomebrew (646) - Acworth, Georgia, USA - APR 8, 2003
Slightly sweet aroma, with a hint of alcohol. Starts to the thin side, then fills your mouth with a touch of mocha and coffee. Finishes to the sweet side. I would classify this as more of a sweet stout. Jokes (1453) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 30, 2003
Pours thick and dark with with an initial thick, dark head that quickly disappears into still liquid. A nice combination of burnt, roasty flavors and thick, ripe fruit. Coffee, chocolate, overly ripe cherries, a bit of toast and the slightlest hint of alcohol. Dry and slightly bitter in the finish. Very nice and definitely tasty. A surprizingly good beer.

nice pour... the dark head and dark burnt pugent scent that i look for in a stout.the typical choclate, malt flavor but a hint of licorice was very nice. the only knock was it is more texture then flavor jgb9348 (6186) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAR 14, 2003
Pitch BLACK in colour. Very very malty in smell. Good malty taste and burnt flavours show through perfectly. A tad watery, but not too bad! krdktq (17) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 9, 2003
This stout had everything you expect in a good Imperial stout. Thick and black with a nice head and good taste. This sample was purchased from the brewery so it was super fresh.
