Pours a very dark brown - almost black, with small beige head. Rich aroma consisting of malt, coffee, and caramel. Tasted very similar to a mocha. Included hints of roasted wood and malt. Slight tinge of hops and smoke in taste. If you like smokey flavored drinks this is the beer for you.

Pours pitch black with a two finger frothy beige head that slowly settles into a lasting cap/ring. Streaks and spots of lace left behind.
Slightly smokey aroma with roasted dark malts balanced by some sweeter notes. Hints of toast, dark chocolate, oatmeal and coffee along with smoked meat and subtle hops. subtle lactic presence.
Medium bodied but a bit thinner than expected with a strong roasted malt presence that is sligtly dry and acrid but not overwhelmingly so. Hints of burnt toast, deeply roasted coffee, dark chocolate and oatmeal. Very bitter with subtle hops complimenting the dry, roasted notes. Subtle lactic presence and some chocolate sweetness. Finishes with boozy heat that gives off a lot of alcohol flavor. Astringent dry boozy finish. Looks and smells nice but the flavor doesn't follow through.

A - Pours a dark black, chocolate, body with a small toffee off white head
S - Mild vanilla, molasses, sweet dark chocolate, and as weird as this sounds, a hickory scent reminiscent of BACON!
T - Very dark up front, nice roasted notes, mild fruit and ends on this hickory bacon flavor.
M - Very syrupy, but it's to be expected with this type of beer.
O - I'm going to pass on this one.

Like Kim Kardasian, looks are deceiving. A full body apperance, with a trunk full of junk. That is a little too harsh as i know how well reviewed this offering is, but you get my point. Flavor complexities that still need to be worked out, with high points of coffee grinds, burnt chocolate but a thin, syrupy mouthfeel that missed the richness of some others. The dark, thin head stayed, with low carbonation that needed more balance for me to want to try it again.

I don't always drink stout, but when I do, it will most likely not be another Vampire Slayer. The color was a mix of dark raspberry and dark roast coffee beans, with a thin layer of foam, which on looks alone, seemed very promising. However, upon first sip, I found it somewhat syrupy and not as smooth as its looks, with taste notes that was a cross between black licorice and soy sauce. This was not a thirst quencher, but more like a meal. For these same reasons, it's probably a great drink for those who appreciate a good hearty imperial stout. As a fan of True Blood, glad I tried it, but may have been too big of a bite for this IPA-er.

Opaque black with a coffee ice cream head. Bubbly like a cauldron.
Smells roasty, dark and acrid with sugary edges. More burnt wood than smoke. Tastes like roast malt chocolate frozen yogurt. Char in back gets to be a bit much. Not bad but I can think of 20 imperial stouts available at my local beer store that are better than this.
There's a big hubbub over the use of holy water in this beer. I don't know that it's any different than a kosher Hebrew beer but my girlfriends Catholic and says it is.
