Poured into a Fremont small snifter. Pours pitch black, opaque in the glass with a fine one finger light brown head with great retention and lots of lacing. Aroma of dark toasted malt, chocolate, a little vanilla and coffee; smells nice. Flavor is dark toasted malt with a bit of char, dark chocolate, light espresso coffee, a bit of molasses finishes with rich cocoa and dark malt with lightly hops and mildly char. Smooth, quite creamy body with an excellent mouth feel. This is very nice imperial stout. The flavor is full and well integrated with robust malt and good chocolate flavors with char and coffee at the edges. Reading old reviews here, this must have gone through a recipe revision, because this is top notch. My first introduction to this brewery and a good one. I really like this. The ABV for this recent bottle appears to have gone up a bit to 10%, but it is well covered.

22oz bottle, black wax, 10% ABV, no date but likely the 2016 version. Pours black with a medium sized light khaki head. Smells of coffee, cocoa, roasted malt, char, and some faint dark fruit. The taste follows closely with mostly roasted malt and cocoa with some light char, coffee, earthy hops, and dark fruit. Not a super strong intensity, but smooth and balanced. Some alcohol comes through. Medium bitterness, subtle sweetness, and light dryness. Some noticeable variance between bottles in the level of char/roastiness (the bottles with less char were better). Below average body and average carbonation. Overall, nothing really stands out as special and it's not a 'heavy hitter', but it's very well-rounded and surprisingly pleasant. Great example of an IS and worth a try.

Appearance: Pours a chocolate fudge brown color with a modest head that leaves a bit of lacing behind

Smell: Chocolate and coffee with a hint of ash

Taste: Very chocolatey, up front, with the coffee arriving in the middle and lingering into the finish; a bit ashy in the aftertaste

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Though it is a bit one-dimensional, that dimension is quite enjoyable

Thanks, JohnGalt1, for the opportunity

Black and oily, smooth yet with a nip of alcohol warmth, a perfect fall drink. On tap at the Crooked Fence taproom, black as night with a small skin of beige head. Aroma and taste are rich roast grains, coffee, chocolate and molasses. Delicious, smooth and easily drinkable.

Bomber thanks to Toby. Really cool label. Pours a jet black color with a small white head. A nose of dark fruit, chocolates. The flavor is dominated by sweet dry earthy ash, cocoa, chocolates, light banana and dark fruit. Very ashy. Good. Milky at times.
