Poured form a bottle into a modified tulip glass.
A - Deep darkness, beautiful dance of carbonation is present but not overactive.
Crowned with a light cocoa creamy head. Lacing trail shows no sign of quitting.
S - Dark fruits, fig, medium chocolate not to dark, a slight hint of toffee. Malt bill
is not weighted to any one area. The nose opens up with time, leading to hints of
alcohol and mint.
T - Danish stout for sure. As big as it is still a tight flavor, chocolate malt, lingers only slightly,
the hop bite has a touch of pine, maybe juniper.
F - The initial pass is rich bodied, the middle has a quickness and feels like it wants to run away,
Finally the end has an intriguing desire to stay, the linger is quite delightful. Not to sharp on the tongue.
Definitely that Danish approach, slightly whimsical and refined.

O - A fine example, not to far a field from Stanby of the Dr. each a fine example.

A nice treat on this cool autumn morning

Cheers

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Appearance: Opaque, chocolately, very dark brown color, with a fine, creamy, dark tan head and heavy lacing.

Aroma: Meaty smoke mixed with dark roasted coffee, milk chocolate, and bitter cocoa.

Taste & Mouthfeel: The full body and creamy texture carry sweeter-than-expected flavors of vanilla, maple syrup, and steamed milk. The earthy, intense, bitterness in the finish counters the sweet flavors on the tongue, and tastes like coffee grounds. That meaty, smoky aroma comes through in the flavor profile as well, adding a savory character to the entire drink that helps to mesh the sweet and bitter.

Final Word: Highly recommended! This was a very complex and interesting brew, with an entertaining variety of flavors that, when taken together, feel distinctly like a breakfast meal (a carnivorous one) wrapped up in a beer. The meaty smoke, sweet, steamed milk and maple syrup, earthy, bitter coffee grounds, and cocoa all seem to have places on your breakfast table, right down to the vanilla flavored coffee creamer! The only reason anyone should approach this beer with caution is if you don’t have much of a tolerance for the bitterness in the finish. It is a particularly intense bitterness, as it feels like raw coffee grounds, so it has the potential of turning some drinkers away, or confusing them as the beer flip-flops between pancakes with syrup, and slugs of espresso. Anyone and everyone else, however, should jump at the chance to try this one!

500 ml bottle. Served in a Great Lakes Brewing chalice, the beer pours dark brown/black with an inch tan head. The head retention is pretty good, and there's also a lot of lacing. The brew smells like roasted malt, bittersweet and milk chocolate, dark fruit, and some coffee. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there's the addition of some molasses, vanilla, and a bit of licorice flavors. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's smooth, creamy and coating with moderate carbonation. I think this is a pretty good imperial stout. Definitely worth picking up if you come across some. $9.99 a bottle.

500ml bottle. Snifter glass. Intense chocolate & underneath alcohol aromas as cap is removed. Pure black color. Brownish tan is creamy, slowly dissipated & leaves some lacing. Fresh aroma shows dark bitter cocoa & milk chocolate, rounded by herbal notes & ripe citric on the back. Slight dark fruits are also displayed to the nose. Creamy upfront with roasted & caramel notes as well as toffee & gentle alcohol. Full body. Soft carbonation. Viscous & creamy mouthfeel. Subtle notes of licorice & herbal bitterness with a point of cumin in the middle are joined by dark cocoa flavor linger into a sweet/bitter finish where resinous hop arises & leaves a dried sensation. Heat through the throat, some fruity & caramel hues on the aftertaste. Flavorful & gentle drinkability. Amazing balance at this masterpiece !! A great all-terrain beer that could be perfectly paired with Mexican fajitas – chili, chicken, onion & beans- or Panetone cake as well. Or simply alone for a long & paused drink, naturally. (Batch 512. BF10/2017).

Served on draft at Redlight Redlight in Orlando Florida.

Arrives to the bar opaque black with a rather dark, mocha colored head. Nice density and lacing, especially considering the abv on this one.

Aroma was severely lacking any substance. If held in front of my nose with a blindfold, I may choose shrimp as the aroma, just because I would be picking at straws.

Flavor was okay. A little boozy and sweet. No real depth of flavor. Dark fruits, raisins, alcohol.

Not a fan of this one. Too one dimensional, or no dimensional, for my tastes. Sweet and slightly boozy.

A-almost black with a tan head that quickly leaves to form a small ring around the top

S-rich roasted malt, dark chocolate, roasted coffee,

T-taste is very good, large roasted malt backbone with coffee, chocolate, bit of molasses, caramel, and maybe some dark fruits mixed in there.

M-very nice full body, light carbonation, dry roasted finish

Overall I really like this beer, great tasting and a nice full body makes it an above average IS

Bottle: Poured a pitch-black carol stout with a nice large foamy brown color head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of roasted malt with some black chocolates notes and light dry notes are quite enticing. Taste is also a very solid mxi between some dry roasted malt with light smooth black chocolates with alight dry hoppy finish. Body is full with somewhat of a creamy texture with no apparent alcohol. Solid interpretation of the style but I still prefer some of the other imperial stout brewed by the same brewer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Motor oil with a reddish-brown fringe in the right light.
Aroma: Coffee, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, earth, bread,
Taste: Sweet, dark malt, sweet-ripened dates
Mouthfeel: midway between effervescent and foamy.
Overall: Great. Maybe a bit too sweet for what I want in my Imperials, but I really do like it a lot.

Acids and tannins are both mid-level. I feel both dryer out on my taste buds, and wet in the rest of my mouth as I salivate. Pretty sure the west coast IPA I had before this did some damage to tonights palate, so I’m getting more bitterness than is probably here.
