330 ml bottle from Cru in Brisbane. Drank at home. Pours black with medium tan head. Mild chocolate aroma. Robust flavours of toasted malt, chocolate, and maybe slight anise. Very enjoyable and I would buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Brandman (2623) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 3, 2016
Black body, light brown head. Aroma has plums, figs, rich molasses, some medicinal hops. Flavour has rich caramel and some deep coffee with dark fruits. One of the best ones Iíve had for a while. Barkeep said they aged this keg for some time because it was too sweet. Still has sweetness but not too much. When it warms liquorice comes through. Bit salty somehow. Canít just stop getting new things from this one.

Aroma of licorice, chocolate, coffee and slight roasted caramel. Pitch black colour, light brown and one finger head. Well balanced between sweetness and coffee / hoppy bitterness. Medium full body, pretty thick, soft carbonation and roasted coffee / toffee finish. Good straight up imperial stout.

bluejacket74 (1742) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - FEB 5, 2016
16.9 ounce bottle, no dating that I could find on the bottle or label. Served in a Great Lakes brewing snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with a couple inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both pretty good. I like the aroma, the brew smells like peaty smoke, burnt/charred malt, coffee and some bittersweet chocolate. The taste is mostly like the aroma, but thereís also some molasses, licorice and dark fruitiness noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, itís creamy and coating with a good amount of carbonation. I liked this a lot, and Iíd buy this again the next time I come across a bottle. Itís full of smoky, peaty and burnt/charred flavors, and thatís always a plus for me! $11.99 a bottle.

Oelbas (268) - DENMARK - DEC 31, 2015
Helt mørk brun med et holdbart lysebrunt skum. Duft af mørk malt, sødme og alkohol i en flot balance. Meget fyldig blød smag med en smule alkohol, inden bitterheden tager over og fortsætter i eftersmagen. En fremragende imperial stout i flot balance.
