Tessic (917) - Brantford, Ontario, - SEP 30, 2012
This stout poured a deep balck colour with a deep tan coloured head that was very creamy. To the nose there are scents of roasted malts, molassass with a little coffee and cocoa. A hint of the old time Meloids Cough candies too. First sip had a very heavy mouthfeel with strong flavours of smoke and strong coffee,. Finish was as roasty as you can get. Very full bodied Imp stout, not for the faint!

mmahut (1259) - CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 28, 2015
Bottle, 2014, 9%. Pours in black body with medium froasty tan head which is gone within a minute or two. Aroma has a gentle roastiness, little bit of dark chocolate, along with some pretty light acidity on the nose. Taste has high earthy acidic bitterness right upfront but gets balanced by a high roasty sweetness, coffee, dark chocolate. Long bitterness in the after taste. Body is pretty dry, heavy, medium-high carbonation. Alcohol is a little bit too warming for my taste.

Quevillon (2576) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 24, 2015
500 ml bottle from LCBO Hawkesbury (Ontario) on November 28, 2014 (9% version). Black, small beige head. Fruity coffee aroma, not to strong. Spicy moka coffee taste, but somewhat dry, nice bitter coffee aftertaste. Not a tempest in your mouth, but at less not an over the top monster now a days!

HopsandBolts (138) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 13, 2015
500 ml bottle from the LCBO.

Appearance: Pours a dark black with a bit of tan head, shorter retention and lots of lacing.

Aroma: Chocolate, coffee, dark malt, smoke.

Flavours: Coco, dark malt, cola, black coffee

Mouthfeel: Thinner with moderate carbonation.

Overall: A nice imperial stout. Not as good as some of the other options on the market like Bolsevik Bastard but still petty decent.

Eructoblaster (3191) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 7, 2015
Bottle - 500ml (2014). Pours an opaque black body with an average, fading, beige foamy head. Rich malty aroma with vineous and chocolate hints. Alcohol is not agressive. Its robust malty/hoppy aroma carries roasty, licorice, woody, and plummy notes. Ends with a long, strong, warming, bitter/roasty finish. Very well done.

CacheManyHose (290) - HONG KONG - JAN 5, 2015
From LCBO, drank at Ian's place in Toronto. Inky black with thin beige watery head. Smells of cola, potpourri/florals, spice, dried fruit, bit of soy sauce. Tastes of spiced cola, coffee, slightly syrupy malt, quite bitter. Body is bitter, fizzy.

HKdIPA (348) - HONG KONG - JAN 5, 2015
Bottle from LCBO at Ian's in Toronto. Dark black pour, very little head. Aroma is dark chocolate, licorice, roasted malt. Taste is big but standard imperial stout - mostly roasted malt, some coffee bitterness, some dark fruit. Good coffee flavor. Lasting finish - a bit boozy. Good.

GraffitiVandal (52) - Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 1, 2015
Opaque black with beautiful thick yellow-brown foam. Very deep and strong coffee, cocoa + herbal aroma. Taste is also very deep, hints of dark chocolate, carmel, licorice and champagne.The taste is even developing more when the temperature increases, so do not cool down it too much. Very good beer!
