On Tap at Zeno's Bar in State College, Pa. The beer was served in a snifter type of glass.

The appearance was jet black with a nice frothy head that lingered for a little while. The smell was rich in dark, dried fruits (plums and raisins) and had hints of roasted barley and chocolate. The flavor started out akin to soy sauce almost and quickly changed to a smooth and roasted chocolate grain flavor. There were hints of burnt, toasted grain and a nice hop bitter to balance and a very, very creamy and smooth mouthfeel. This is an awesome Imperial Stout and my first product that I have had from New Holland. I would love to try some more.

Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass

Appearance – Served a nearly pitch black with a thin-dense brown head. The head had amazing retention with even over a 30 min period the head not dissipating completely. While not a complete fade it did lose some size to leave nice lacing on the side of the glass with a thin brown film left on the top of the brew.

Smell – The smell was heavy of cherry and chocolate. These were met with lighter notes of a roasted coffee and a good shot of boozy alcohol aroma.

Taste – The taste started out heavy of a sweeter chocolate and cherry flavors. This chocolate covered cherry had some nice bready maltiness mixed within. As the flavor advances some of the cherry faded, but never disappeared. As the cherry sweetness faded, some flavors of roasted malt, bitter chocolate coffee and a light nuttiness came to the tongue. These lasted to the end of the taste where they were met by a warming heavy boozy taste of alcohol. In the end, a bitter, roasty , boozy flavor lingered on the tongue in a satisfying way.

Mouthfeel – The body was nice and creamy with a lower level of carbonation. With its robust darkness and 10.8 % it is very fitting, and allows all the roasty, cocoa and boozy flavors to linger on the tongue.

Overall – A nice cocoa warming stout; very tasty and enjoyable to drink.

First and foremost, this is by far the best label art of all beers. I know 3F has some good stuff, but the creepy and simple design of this one takes the cake for me.

Served on tap at NHBC.

A: Pour is dark and opaque. No seeing through this one. A moderate dark head with lacing even on a flushed glass and safe pour.

S: Roasted malt, barley, dark fruit, biscuit and butter, some alcohol.

T: Yup, thats good stuff. Roasted malt, some darker coffee/chocolate tones, dark fruit, and some hop action.

M: Warming, coating, and flow are all welcoming. For 10.8abv, there is very little alcohol bite. Impressive.

Another treat I picked up in a trade! Poured from foil capped bomber to pint glass the beer arrives a deep rich black, opaque, with a nice 2 finger cap, supreme retention and lots of lacing. Looks tremendous. A delightful aroma with hints of cocoa, milk chocolate, oak, vanilla, and roast. The flavor begins with a roast and cocoa that blend tremendously well. As it warms hints of oak and vanilla compliment well. Full bodied and creamy smooth. Well carbonated. Overall, this was very enjoyable! I'd love to sample again sometime!
