Found this tasty brew on tap at 7 Monks in Traverse City.

Appearance: Very dark brown, nearly black pour. Thin amber head with minimal lacing.

Smell: Smoky woodsy charred smell.

Taste: Alcohol comes through right away but not overpowering. Followed by hops, chocolate, and coffee. Like most beers in this category, it gets tastier as it warms.

Mouhfeel: A bit thin, but not a significant amount.

Overall: I loved this beer. I would have had another but the bar had 46 different beers on tap, plus I promised my wife a color tour. I'll have to look for this baby in the bottle at the local brew store.

I just managed to pick up a 22 oz bottle from the local distributor. It's just as delicious out of the bottle. I also just heard that some Tool Bags out of California think they should litigate to to preserve the vampire name. F them...

Clown Shoes is finally hiking out West. Bout time.

Pours a black on black ale with a nice beige head that slowly dissipates to a ring around the glass. Decent lacing.

Smells a bunch like leather, wood and smoke. Pick your order. Chocolate.

We need Smokey the Bear. The taste is very smokey, black coffee, choco and leathery. Big charred wood. Dark maltiness as well. Bitter back end and a roasted finish. Light bitterness on the aftertaste. Stays awhile.

Needs a bigger mouthfeel for something with this much flavor. Thin.

Overall I dug the session, but was a tad let down. I had heard great things about this, but it is good....great? Hmmmm. Make it thicker and maybe we got a re-review coming.

single finger thick tan head on a jet black body with no light getting through. Nice lacing. Aroma of dark fruit, vanilla, some roasted malts, smoke and licorice. Flavor follows with a fairly sweet flavor with mostly chocolate, vanilla, roasted malts, oak, and brown sugar. Thick full body and lightly carbonated. Very good and complete/complex imperial stout. Its a tough genre to be memorable in but this one is solid.

Black body, dark tan head. Aromas of vanilla, chocolate, coffee, and whiskey. Thick malt up front with dark milk chocolate and lots of coffee. Medium thick body, average cqrbonaatin, and a fairly sweet finish. Nicely done, very rich aroma and a flavor profile to match.

Small snifter filled from a large bottle.
Full body with light but OK carbonation. High ABV evident.

Flavor & Aroma: Some dark fruit, coffee and dark chocolate. Lasting, rich aftertaste. Alcohol evident but not objectionable.

Main gripe: a bit too sweet.
