Pours with medium mocha head. As expected, the color is dark. It has initial smell of a crisp flowery chocolate. This is a very drinkable stout. It is smooth and living up to the name as the flavor dwells in a very pleasant aftertaste of vanilla and malt. Honestly, this is one of the best stouts I've had in a long time. Kudos to Greenman Brewery. I will definitely be drinking more from them soon. I feel honored to have had the chance to drink this rare brew. Thanks goes to my friend Molly for the present.

Tap at Duckworths. Maybe not the darkest, but a dirty dark brown. Light tan head. Stuck to the glass pretty well.

Aroma, roast malt, some dark chocolate. I don't get a ton out of this, but I always seem to have this issue at Ducks so I'll give the benefit of the doubt.

Taste, nice chewey roast malt, chocolates. Some faint file red fruit. Finish has more roast, anise, and a minor piney note.

Solid medium body, low near creamy carbonation. Pretty coating. Little alcohol presence.

A nice take, everything you would expect is nicely present. Wouldn't spring for a 750 of this, but worth it on draft.

Thanks to Wil for this one, shared at the 3rd annual chili showdown.
Poured into a pint, it frothed a bit with an ample layer of creamy tan foam. Lasting coverage and good retention, minimal spotty lacing. Bakers chocolate and light roast in the aroma, moreso in the full bodied flavor. Big chocolate, roast, and mild tobacco that gives it some nice complexity. Smooth and creamy feel, full in body. Despite the higher abv, it was quite easy to drink with a silky feel. Recommended!

750mL bottle from Bruisin Ales (Asheville, NC). 19.99. Brewed 9/25/11, bottled 2/2/12. Served in a Three Floyds teku.

Pours dark brown, slightly translucent ruby highlights around the edges with two fingers of tan head. Head recedes to some wisps on the surface and a thin halo that leaves spotty lacing.

Smells roasty with cocoa, plums and a little coffee.

Taste is a soft smooth blend of bitter sweet dark chocolate, dark stone fruits, mild burnt caramel, creamed coffee, slight pine, subtle funk and just a bit of booze.

Creamy, smooth medium full body with mild but present carbonation. Long bitter cocoa and burnt coffee finish.

The best thing I've had from Green Man but for the same price as a bottle of Hunahpu it falls short. A well brewed classic take on imperial stout with nothing to really make it stand out. Certainly good and worth a try but I can't see myself spending that much for another bottle in the future. That said, I made the whole 750 vanish by myself.

Bought back in April at Bestway in Greensboro.

Pours beautifully leaving a finger of head that settles down to the edges of the glass.

Smells of a little chocolate and dark fruits. Roasty. Some coffee. It's hard to smell after a Black Tuesday and Hunahpu's.

Tastes of chocolates and dark fruits with a bit of a burnt after taste. Very drinkable though.

Mouthfeel is perfect. Smooth and creamy, the way a big stout should be.

I like this beer for sure, and the rating may have been higher if it wasn't up against such heavyweights tonight.
