Held it back a couple of months. Very bitter IS. Hard to finish it. A sipper in drinkability. Black without a retained head.

Hoppy, baker's chocolate, bone dry, lots of carb (small bubbles), bit of oxy. Solid, but too hoppy for my liking.

My only gripe with this fantastic beer is that it's listed as an Imperial Stout. It more in line with a black IPA then a stout. Great beer otherwise!

mcberko (7074) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 23, 2014
500mL can, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks a lot, Dany), pours black with a medium brown head. Aroma brings out lots of roasted malt and dark fruits - great balance for an impie. Flavour is the same, with loads of roasted malt, light dark fruits and some dry cocoa. Full-bodied, roasty and dry chocolatey. Everything is done right here. Excellent impie.

Marheb (2298) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 10, 2014
Herbacé, torréfié, chocolaté avec des accents profonds de chlorophylle . L’amertume est enlignée avec la brutalité de la buvabilité.

Yeah, this is a black IPA, but what the hell. Can thanks to theepeeist. Pours opaque black with a medium dark brown head, creamy with nice lacing. Aroma is pine, spruce, roast, citrus. Flavor is medium sweet, roasty, anise, coffee, pine, spruce, citrus, chocolate. Medium bitter and a bit burned. Full body, creamy mouthfeel, lingering bitterness.

JulienHuxley (3459) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - AUG 25, 2014
Can thanks to Luk for flying this one over for me, seems like a nice #3000. Opaque black pour with creamy, lacy brown foam. Aroma is really rich and chocolatey, super aromatic without being perfumey, light anise notes, light molasses, hoppy, but I feel a lot must have faded out - still a nice piney, grassy hoppiness though. Taste is sweet up front, nice and chocolaty, with a lingering bitter finish (roasty and hoppy), never overpowering but lasts for ever, no real booze, just tons of flavor. Palate is rich, full bodied yet not sweet, nice smooth carbonation. Yum.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5077) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Sampled from a 16 oz can this beer poured thick and black with a large foamy dark brown head that left good lacing. The aroma was very gritty and leafy floral hops, chocolate, and coffee. The flavor was very bitter coffee, roasty malts, very dry and with strong floral hops. Long floral hop finish. Medium body. Ok.

TheEpeeist (3399) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 5, 2014
16 oz can. Dark brown with a greyish tan foam cap. Nose is pine and grapefruit morphing into caramel and cocoa; quite the trick. Thick and a bit chalky with a burnt, resiny finish. This has got to be the most fresh hoppy stout i’ve ever tried and even though i’m not a fan of the Black IPAs this works for me. The taste starts with chocolate, caramel and mocha; sweet orange then bitter grapefruit peel and pine. Not for the timid.
