Pours jet black like used motor oil. Has no head on top. Has a coffee and roasted malt smell to it. Can tastes lots of roasted coffee with hints of dark chocolate. Very delicious!

Imperial Stout poured from a bottle into a Brooklyn Brewery tulip. The pour is black, not too viscous, and sports 2 fingers of fine tan head with good retention. Typical nose of a Russian Imperial Stout: roasted malt, dark coffee, and a little cedar.

Full body with a rather thin feel and a good, roasty flavor. An overwhelming presence of roasted malt up front makes for a very bitter introduction. The bitterness from the roast intensifies as the hops make an appearance. Everything builds to a finish that smacks of chicory, coffee grounds, burnt cedar, and unsweetened cocoa. A little unbalanced, unpleasant, and disappointing. Still, all that roast reminds me of Bell's Expedition Stout and probably makes this an excellent candidate for cellaring. I really wish I had bought more than one bottle.

Incredibly complex, mellow and mature, Green Man's imperial stout takes its own patient time hitting the market, waiting for an optimal time for taste, texture and charm.

The Dweller pours jet black and with a rich latte-like texture. Its creamy tarnish froth crowns the stout and leads into a decadent roast scent. campfire, turkish coffee, cocoa and roasting nuts carry and brownie-like character early. Roasty and sweet early on the tongue, the stout's taste is of slight sweetened espresso and cream.

As the flavors develop, the sweetness slowly fades and the roast billows across the middle palate. Strong espresso, burnt toast, cocoa powder and smoldering timbers resonate on the tongue with a firm hop bitterness that's of burnt pinecone, sappy and citrusy character.

Full, rich and creamy, the beer's firm bitterness balances the malt in finish and seems to elevate the char. The warmth of rum comes with a spicy finish of aniseed and grilled fruit. Still, a long roasty aftertaste simmers on the throat and charms the senses with its curious fruit and char.

12 oz single bottled 1/27/16 poured into a tulip.

A - Dark, pitch black with a one finger dark tan head that moves immediately to a thin lace

S - Robust chocolate and dark fruit, slight touch of anise. Very inviting.

T - Taste follows the nose, except the coffee flavors are much more apparent and in the mix. I am detecting some wood notes, along with some nut and vanilla.

M - Carbonation is medium low, mouthfeel is full, but velvety/creamy at times.

O - Been a fan of the brewery for a while, so it was good to see something other than ESB and the Porter make it to the area. This one does not dissapoint.
