Style: American Imperial Stout

Notes / Commercial Description:
A few times in the history of craft beer it has happened that a highly praised beer rises beyond mortal stardom into the higher godly league. Usually the recipe to make such heavenly drops is thick fudge-like body, pitch black color, amazingly overwhelming aromas of chocolate, coffee, dark fruits and muscovado sugar, obviously only made in limited amounts and most crucial of all -- it must taste rare!

I wasn't going to pick this beer up, sadly, because the can looked cheesy - despite what Beeradvocate said. I'm glad I did. It's excellent. Great classic tasting stout. Nothing incredibly special, but everything tastes right. What every stout should (at least) strive for. To me, it symbolizes the stout benchmark. It can be, and is exceeded, but damn it's good.

This is a great, solid imperial stout ESPECIALLY at the price ($4/16oz. can). Right there with all of the other good non-tricked out, non-pastry stouts out there, but basically half the price or better. Love the thick, full feel. Definitely one to stock up on.

A beer to enjoy over the course of Jan. 1 2019.
I don't know if I've ever had a blacker beer. I saw no highlights beyond black when held to a light. Wonderfully dense dark head over that black body. Really nice pour.
The aroma was surprisingly tight, but I'll see if it opens up as it warms. As it does it's rich maltness with strong dark fruit.
Rich full flavor, but not as complex as I expected. A nice blending of richness, smoothness, malt sharpness, hoppy and dark malt bitterness and hits of sweetness. Full rich malt feel too. Much lingering on the finish. The fruit opens up in time.
This is solid but not exceptional.

It's Jesusmas today! Pint can served in my favorite Chimay chalice. Strikingly pitch black, with only tinges of brown when held up to the light. Like Jesus. Not much in the way of head formation, this is more of an oil slick. Also like Jesus. Aroma is roasty and brings the smell of molasses. Flavor is grainy and burnt -- conveying the contours of blackened and roasted malt to my tongue. I can almost feel the gritty barley on my tongue. There's some unsweetened cocoa in the flavor, but this beer primary raison d'être is to showcase roasted barley for Imperial Stout lovers like myself. This is our gift.

Over rated in my opinion. Has an off metallic taste. Drank after six-point 4-beans. Tasted nasty

From a pint can…Pours tar black with a thick beige head. Strong, sweet smell with notes of coffee, caramel and roasty malt. Feel is thick, rich, and full bodied. Complex taste with hints of chocolate, strong coffee, plum and maple syrup. Very good for sipping.
