Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 12.00%

Availability: Rotating

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!

We have ourselves a big boi here, my peeps. Dark, all kinds of dark, like baby mama kind of dark, here. Damn thang is deep and luscious like Selina Gomez pre Justin Bieber.

As a whole, it’s good. Not the best, no where near FIS, but still pretty good.

Poured from a pint can pitch black and thick with a two finger frothy milkshake tan head that remained at a half finger. Reminded me of when I used to change the oil in my cars. Four sips in and the head was gone. Heavy lacing was present in the beginning but after four sips the lacing began to disappear. Aroma was very faint malt, chocolate but mostly vanilla. Tastes include dark chocolate, malt, vanilla and black licorice. The feel is thick but silky smooth with low carbonation. This is a very good Imperial stout that I would buy again. BTW . . . The booziness gets to you soon.

Glad to finally be trying the regular version after trying many variants. Chocolatey, roasty, and boozy aromas and flavors. Decently thick and fluffy mouthfeel. A little too much booziness, though

Had this aged a year and had it fresh, I prefer the aged and do believe it could do well aged 5 years. It's a dark oily syrupy beer with a hoppy chocolate dark fruit aroma. Heavy syrupy mouthfeel with some hop bite. Super smooth with low alcohol bite on the tongue. Well done on balance for 12%. Also does have a bourbon character to it without being barrel aged.

Flavors are of chocolate, hops, tobacco, oak, and vanilla. Crazy hops are still present after a year with good carbonation. But a year on this and I just love it.

Poured from 16oz can dated 1/10/18 to a diagonal cut snifter.
Dark to opaque topped with a dark brown head of multi sized bubbles that behave like a bubbling chocolate cauldron for a few minutes. Those bubbles spew forth aromas of chocolate, raisins, prunes, coffee.. on and on, lets say complex.
Sipping brings the chocolate to prominence in the front, fade to dried fruits, finish is caramel with a hit of plain sugar at the very end.
That beautiful head is all but gone part way through the drink.
Mouth feel borders on light syrup. I could probably do with more carbonation, but I think its appropriate per style.
I don't normally like overly sweet foods or beers, but the aroma and front-end complexity on this has me sold. A very good beer.

Impressive. From a sixteen ounce can, this brew is thick and utterly black. It has a thick, chocolate colored head (great lace!). The aroma is complex: licorice, oak, smoke. The taste is smooth and alcoholic. The licorice notes continue through the sips, which have a notable warmth. Coffee and Dark Chocolate are also present. Thick and wonderful.

Deep dark brew, with an assertive brown head. Smells great. Robust and toasty. Full bodied, a little viscous. Boozy, dark, roasted, a little sweet. No frills.

Appearance is darker than cola. Think ten fiddy. Initial response to the smell and taste is Smokey. After the smoke, it’s super dark coco and fudgey. Bitter finish is coffee/oaky And slightly strong. Fairly smooth. Medium full body. Not a dessert stout. It does have smoke throughout, if you don’t like that in your stouts, I wouldn’t recommend this. As it warms, it does smell and taste more sweet and smoke seems to fade a little. Don’t think I’d buy again. Narwhal and ten fiddy are on the shelves near me and I’d rather snag those first.

Pours a pitch black opaque with a finger of tan head, pours thick like motor oil.
Smells of dark roasted coffee, bitter chocolate, and dark malts.
Taste follows, strong coffee(like the sludge left if I forgot to turn off the coffee pot before going to work because I only finished half of the pot before I left), baking chocolate, dark roasted malts, and a touch of dark fruits.
Full bodied for sure, thick yet smooth feel with a hint of alcohol.
Overall tasty, I could see this being a staple in the beer fridge from here on out.

I expected the motor oil visual quality when I bought this but holy shit! Hold it right up against the sun... nothing. Not the faintest glow. Apparently getting more Jesus involves roasting malted barley into a black hole. If the look is over the top, the smell is under the radar. As it warms the chocolate becomes more pronounced, telling me it was a little too cold when I poured it...definitely a pleasant and subtle tobacco in there. The taste blew me away. Beautiful bitterness when I expected cloying sweetness roasty malt followed by a beautifully complimentary alcohol bite. Yet a sweet coating left on the lips. And the price for a 16 0z can makes this such a bargain! I'll be back for more.
