Canned 9/14/15; drank 11/26/15 @ the Yarchives.

Black appearance.

A rough pour yielded a HUGE dark khaki head (careful pouring!); strong lace.

Blackberry, fresh earth, bakers chocolate & marshmallow notes in the nose.

Thick, creamy mouthfeel.

Blackberry, fresh earth & bakers chocolate flavors up front; faint oat notes on the finish.

A robust stout; one for the coldest night of the year.

Such a gorgeous color! Soooooooo dark! Thick! Creamy! A beautiful head! It’s about as high an ABV as I can tolerate but it’s smooth going down. ❤️ Love

This beer features one of the darkest, fullest heads Ican ever remember seeing on a beer, even a stout. Notes of fig, coffee, chocolate and black cherry accompany that monster head and jet body.

There s so much going on here it is a little overwhelmng. You have your dak ruits, roasted coffee and bakerschocolate colliding with 98 IBUs of piney hoptasticness. A bit of oatmeal smooths out that mouthfeel just right. Its quite amazing that this lives up to its outsized reputation. The ultimate deep winter stout?

The beer pours a solid black colour and a vigourous pour created a bubbly 1” head that receded to a thin film within a couple of minutes. The aroma is roasted malt, smoked malt, soy sauce, and dark chocolate. The mouthfeel is full bodied, well carbonated, and very creamy. The flavour is roasted malt, dark chocolate, and peppery spice. Maybe even a hint of coffee. The beer came with quite a reputation and it lives up to it. An excellent beer.

Great imperial stout. Pours dark and thick; looks like oil. Nice tan head. Chocolate, vanilla and roasted oats with a lot of hoppiness on the back end.

You don't rate this beer, it rates you. It's a "5". Period.
Don't like it? Then you have a problem. Yes, I live in Longmont.
