Poured from a 22 oz bomber, split with a few co-workers.

Appearance: Black in color (what else?) with a frothy three finger head that leaves behind sheets of lace as it settles. Nice looking stuff - better head retention than most big stouts.

Smell: Unsweetened cocoa, molasses and roasted barley. Very muted overall - it takes quite a bit of sniffing to pick anything out.

Taste & mouthfeel: Very roasty and bready with a subtle molasses-like sweetness. Nice and thick on the palate, but not overly strong in flavor. Only semi-sweet, this isn't a dry beer per se but it is very balanced. The finish is moderately hoppy with a pleasant resiny bitterness mixing nicely with the roasted notes.

Notes: A good brew, but it does strike me as being slightly one-dimensional.

A: Deep and opaque - a little hint of ruby highlight peeks out of the bottom of the snifter, but otherwise, it can't get much darker. Head is a light brownish, quite creamy and pleasant.

S: Coffee grounds - like a pot of coffee brewed and then given just enough time to cool down. A little hint of an ester fruity sweetness, though I'd struggle to suggest which fruit precisely.

T: A roasted malt with coffee ground notes again, a little hoppiness slips itself in there for an added flavour - not something I typically detect in such stouts.

M + D: A 'robust medium body.' Not full, rich and creamy, but it has presence. A rather unique flavour works well with this feel, and makes for an intriguing drink. A nice effort on the style - I'd get more.

12 Fl Oz Bottle poured at home into a Westmalle chalice on 4th Oct 2012.

Black bodied beer, with a full, dark tanned creamy head. the head sadly soon fell away to a wisp and collar.

Burnt ground coffee and roasted malt loaf type smell, add some dark chocolate and some walnuts: that is the nose I detected.

The taste follows the aromas but with a drier, bitter feel. The hop content comes into its own in the flavours once the beer hits the back of the mouth: this adds some balance and calms down the malts a little, giving the beer a semi-kick and prevents it being too smooth or rich feeling in texture.

I liked it: another Californian I'd happily have again.

this was a good one to end the night with - poured very nicely into a stout glass - put up a nice 2 finger tan head - light in the aroma , coffee, chocolate, roasty malty - taste follows thru with a sweet malt finish - easy drinking - nice lacing - a solid stout - not as robust as other imperial stouts - good nonetheless.
