Bought one for now and one for the basement. Jet black with brown head. Easy to pick up the alcohol in the nose with some earthy smokey notes. Smooth with a strong taste of oak and soy. Finishes with chocolate and a ribbon of warmth straight to your gut.

Pours jet black, dark tan head, and lacing left behind. Strong and robust roasted malts coupled with Belgian yeasts. A bit fruity like dates and plums making this similar to a good quad in the nose. Heavy oily mouthfeel. This is more fruity than roasty to my surprise. Rich dates and plums are the easiest accessible flavors. Licorice is easily noted as well, a hint of soy saucse, and coffee combine well. A soft and warming booziness is there, which I find to be nice. The finish starts out sweet but turns a bit dry like coffee.

Multiple bottles of this. I really enjoy this beer any chance I can. Super black pour with a tan head on it. Smell is hoppy and full of roasted malts. Taste is sweet and hoppy, which is a unique combination. Almost like a sweet stout to me; this is one that I keep going back to if at all possible. Good stuff, one of my favorites from Weyerbacher.

LinusStick (3298) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2011
A very delicious impy. Aroma was weak for the style. Grainy and boozy with chocolate malt. Pour was a flat black with no rising bubbles or head which led me to believe the beer was flat. Turns out that was far from the truth. Nice carbonation delivers a strong mix of thick chewy chocolate. There is a spicy peppery flavor with each sip which Im assuming is the Belgian yeast (Im assuming thats what was used since its labeled a Belgian style imperial stout). Gives it a nice twist, but its so faint behind the chocolate and bitter hops that it just tastes different.

Jet black appearance with an almost espresso like head. Rich malty character. Very settle hints of chocolate. Went well with steak and asparagus.

zizzybalubba (1844) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - APR 1, 2011
750 mL caged & corked bottle from Grape & Gourmet. First off, this had to be the most stubborn cork in the history of beer or wine. Luckily, the struggle was worth it. Pours dark black with a foamy khaki head. Rich roasted malt aroma with dark chocolate and hints of sweet Belgian yeast in the background. The flavor is very rich with smoky malts, burnt espresso, and dark chocolate dominating. The alcohol content is detected in both flavor and warmth. This seems like a heavy beer and drinking this will require some patience. Overall, this is a damn fine imperial stout.

29-MAR-2011, bottle @Paps tasting. Black with fine brown head. Roasted nose. Loads of coffee and chocolate? Almost as if the chocolate is added? Alcohol can be felt. It has a very long aftertaste. Fantastic stout.
