From a bottle poured a dark black color with a good amount of head. Nice toasted malty flavor with a quick finish. Didin’t taste like 11%.

Pours thick and black with little lacing. The aroma is licorice and molasses. The flavor follows suite with some coffee added. Overall this is decent, but short of expectations for an imperial stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Really surprised by this one. Poured a bit thin and smelled perhaps overly roasted. But the flavor was really good and that forgives all sins. Heavy roasted espresso with delicious dark chocolate. A bit nutty. Smooth feel.

Opaque black beer, pale tan head. Softish palate, crisp and minerally edge. Minerally dark malt, not heavy, roasty or bitter. Mild tangy fruits in the undertone - orange and darker fruits. Cocoa powder chocolate dominates before the minerally dry finish. Pretty light for it’s abv and with good flavour!

Nice dark black color. No alcohol taste, but no other remarkable tastes. Went down easy with a bit of a chocolate roast taste. Good, but I’d go with a different imperial stout next time.

Tap at Alchemy. Opaque brown-black with a steady beige head. Surprisingly mellow for the ABV. Chocolate, coffee, cocoa. Has that Nestle Quik flavor thing going on, a touch of chalkiness. Really nice, think of it as an imperial chocolate stout.

12oz bottle thanks to northernbrews, thanks Jeff! Pours black with a very thin tan head and a little bit of lacing, aroma is really sweet with just a little bit of chocolate, the flavor is really sweet with a ton of malt and just a hint of chocolate in the finish, the mouthfeel is pretty light, the abv comes through a little, not completely terrible.

As bad as conniption was , this is a great beer. Dangerously smooth and no hint of te alcohol content, lots of chocolate and full mouth.

12 oz to snifter in trade from @jimmeekrek. Black but not completely opaque. You can see some brown while pouring. Nice roasted malt aroma. A hint of booze in aroma and flavor. Lively carbonation that bites a little more than I prefer but this is a very nice Imperial.
