The most enjoyable stout I've ever had. (Having said that Left Hand's Milk Nitro is very good as well) You'd never know it was 10% unlike Brooklyn's Chocolate stout which after it warms even a little post pour painfully reminds you with an astringent taste of its higher ABV. Bravo Stone.

Thick, creamy, tan head that lingers. Roasted malt, coffee, aromas. Dark, almost black color (SRM of 25). Thick, rich, and round on the palate with abundant carbonation. Modestly delineated malty notes with a bit of hop bitterness on the finish. Not as intense as I was expecting - good not great.

Wow. On draft: mouthful of heavenly thickness and full bodied coffee flavor. So chewy and delicious. profile - July 7, 2013
Very dark, thick, and heavy coffee taste.

Delicious dark chocolate and cocoa, very rich with nice hop balance. Coul be slightly creamier, but damn good. Suoopsedly this beer is even better when aged a few years. Bottle, July 2013.

Excellent imperial stout. Given the choice, I prefer their espresso blend, but this is by no means a disappointment.
