Color: dark and opaque. Head: reddish. Surprisingly little froth. Carbonated tingle.
Dry, liquor-like body heat after of first sip. Gets sweeter and smoother as you go. Pairs well with steak. For dessert try strawberries, cool-whip, and dessert cups. Drink slow: high ABV.

I dont regularly review anymore, but this terrible crap compelled me to bitch to you all about just that. The appearance is all there, along with the mouth feel, lacing, etc, but the rest is garbage...make mocha with old grinds, mix it with sherry and cheap chocolate wine, and boom, wuts happenin? Oh yea, your taste buds are crying and u wish u could puke yet onset alcoholism prevents u...shucks, me too. Going from Clown Shoes HOTH to this shit should have a warning. Fml

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on November 30, 2013.

This is a beer that begins nice but ends badly. That would be my entire review but we have to have so many characters to post on Beer Advocate.

It is a very attractive looking dark brown to black pour with a long lasting tan head.

The aroma is full of chocolate malts more than anything else. I get little in the way of other malts or hops but I get plenty of chocolate.

The body is light to medium.

But the taste. Eww! Maybe I got a really bad bottle but all I'm getting is vinegar. Some chocolate but mainly vinegar. I rarely pour beers down the drain but this one may be destined for that finale.

thick reddish black pour with 2 fingers of dark brown head which quickly dissipated to a creamy ring around the glass. smells of roasted grains, coffee, dark chocolate, licorice, roasted nuts. this is a fantastic tasting beer... we're talking very similar to black albert (one of my favorites).. lots of roasty, yet subtle, flavors from the grain bill.. lots of coffee and chocolate, nutty flavors as well, bit of vanilla also. if it had a bit of lingering bitterness instead of sweetness, i would personally prefer it. full body, very sweet, low carbonation.

got this from my buddy in nevada.. an excellent beer i would have probably never gotten my hands on as it's not on the radar as far as highly sought after/ranked etc.. a delicious, very easy to drink imperial stout.. roasty enough to be to my liking, yet balanced out with tons of sweet malt.
