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.

Beer pours out black with a mocha head and tight lacing. Very viscous and thick.

I get a lot of chocolate, some roasted malts and a bunch of prune/currant undertones. It smells great, but pick up more hops than I expected.

Taste is a great blend of chocolate, hazelnut, vanilla, cream, roasted malt, a little bit of char at the end keeps this from being a 5.

It has a thicker feel to me, but light enough to keep it from being overly rich, carbonation is ample for the style.

Overall, this was very enjoyable and a great first effort at bottling.

Very good imperial. A little boozy but very tasty and a great mouth feel. Roasty and creamy.

A - pours a thick motoroilesque dark brown With half a finger of rich darker chocolate head. Good retention, OK lacing.

S - rich chocolate, rosary almost mildly smokey malts, some sweet darker fruits and licorice.

T - Lots of sweet dark fruit and licorafe. Fair amount of chocolate sweetness and a bit of roastyness. Slightly boozy as well. The more I drink the more balanced between the four it gets.

M - not quite full bodied but not too far off, moderate carbonation, good mix of drinkable and sipper.

Poured from a bottle into a snifter, the beer is almost jet black, with a tan, frothy, foamy, light tan head that settles quickly into a halo of head. Aromas of dark roasted coffee, bittersweet dark chocolate, molasses, charred wood, caramel, hints of smoke, and earthy notes. Very heavy and rich nose. Wow. Flavors are heavily roasted forward, but with more of a blended flavor profile, with the bitter coffee forming a solid backbone, and bittersweet chocolate, caramel, and some creamy sweet notes providing balance. Very tasty and very drinkable. The 9.5% ABV is hidden very well beneath the layers of this brew. More richly sweet notes come out as you drink, with molasses dark sugary sweetness and caramel highlights darting in and out. Earthy notes, and even some hints of tobacco, rough the edges up enough to really define each sip, and allow you to appreciate the experience. Smooth, slightly heavy, and layered body, with a bitter, roasted, and chocolate laden aftertaste. The finish is smooth, with a slightly dry, bitter undertone. This is a beast, and well worth searching out.

My bottle designates alcohol content as 7.5% not 9.5%.

Capped 750ml bottle pours into a La Fin Du Monde oversized snifter. Pitch black in color with a rather dark and frothy, cappuccino colored head of at least one finger in size. Plenty of lacing adorns the glass.

Full of coffee, chocolate, and roasted grains in the nose. Minimal fruitiness, but the overall aroma is rather subtle; nothing is overly noticeable, therefore the overall feel is lacking. Some alcohol sweetness.

Nice balance in the flavor. Starts with coffee and sweet malts, figs and raisins. Finishes strong with bakers chocolate and chocolate cake. Quite complex and delicious. Espresso Coffee roast finally comes to life long after consumption. This beer has a flavor that evolves second by second, each second different than the previous. Very nice!

Silky smooth mouthfeel with the alcohol well hidden (although it is fairly low for the style anyway). A real coffee and chocolate treat. Really enjoyed this one.
