ChainGangGuy (4872) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - MAR 9, 2011
Appearance: Pours a jet black body with a modestly-sized, very faintly beige-hinted head. Smell: A variety of roasted malts, hunks of dark chocolate, and kitchen counter spices, though its easily cut right down the middle by sharp wafts of lacquery alcohol, licorice, and plum juice. Taste: Dark, roasted maltiness topped with chopped plums, mashed-up bananas, chewing gum, cracked cloves, black licorice, and coated with bittersweet chocolate. Its plenty sweet. Noticed vein of alcohol. Roasty, earthen bitterness tucked inside. Sustained spiciness throughout. Semi-dry, warming finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-full body. Medium carbonation. Soft, smooth body. Drinkability: Hmm, maybe its me, but Ive got a slight feeling of Dj vu. Its not exactly tiny, but, maybe it is a bit thirteen-y.

SourNotes (104) - Bloomington, Minnesota, USA - MAR 1, 2011
Jet Black two fingers of thick foamy mocha head but lots of fizzy carbonation, bubble line up in columns in the head, pretty big bubbles, and intense. Smells super chocolaty with brevity of fig/raisin/vinous notes. overall, the smell is a bit muted. taste, right away, dry, cherry, tartness. Is this infected? no, but it has a slight infected character. not sure what they were going for there. some roast but it takes a back seat to taht dry tart cherry that comes out. gets a bit better as it warms, bitter dark chocolate comes out more. mouthfeel is a bit thin, too fizzy of carbonation as well. drinkablity is a bit low due to the strange dry tart vinous character that is a bit too much in this one.

RolkaNation (141) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 28, 2011
Corked bomber poured into a snifter. Beautiful opaque black color with thick tan head. Aroma isnt overpowering and very nice with roasty banana tones. Taste is oily stout goodness upfront along with a sugar cookie sweetness and coffee/chocolate bitterness combo. Nice Belgian yeasty finish with more slight banana hints. Boozey. Interesting, good beer.

ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - FEB 27, 2011
Bottle from peabodies in Boone, NC. Deep dark pour with a thin tan head. Aroma is dominated by spice and yeast. Subtle hints of roast and chocolate malts. Interesting experiment just not my thing. My opinion might be different if the astringency levels werent so high

JoeMcPhee (9408) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 25, 2011
Deep black pour. The aroma is quite spicy. Lots of fruity/spicy character. Sweet and earthy with a pronounced booziness. Dry, dry cocoa on the finish with a sharp peppery heat. Meh.

abcfan (920) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 25, 2011
Pours black with a fluffy tan head. Amazing cherry, cotton candy aroma. Tastes is a bit of smoke, cherries, and coffee. Very active CO2 on the palate, with a sticky boozy finish. Would drink again.

Appearance: Pours black with a nice big tan head and some lacing
Aroma: Toasted malts, instant chocolate, spices and yeasty

Lagunitasfan (1323) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 21, 2011
Found this back in my book from Sourfest 2010. Black with tan fizzy head. Coffee and cocoa on the nose. Boozy and licorice. Lotsa carbonation for an Imp Stout. Hard to take at Sourfest after so many "tastes".

Bottle, caged and corked. Thick and black with a nice dark tan head, which sadly gives it up pretty quickly. The aroma is stark, hinting at a monster beneath. Indeed, this brims with dark dried fruit, molasses, resin and viney fruitiness. Kick-butt. (#4082, 2/19/2011)
