jet black pour small brown head avg lacing. THis beer is clearly big at first scent. The aroma is hot some definate alcohol overtones along w/ a big chunk of roasted malts a tiny touch of coffee, anise, and vanilla. Great mouth feel huge thick and creamy. Heavily roasted flavor some good vanilla notes some well mixed alcohol and some more roast w/ a sweet lightly bitter coccoa finish. MMMMM good stuff.

TorbenJensen (1464) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2015
Beautiful nougat colored foam and a delicate aroma of hard toasted / roasted malt with distinct mocha tones. The flavor is cold coffee with a slightly burnt character. Lots of heavy malt body and only a slight discrete alcohol taste held down by coffee, roasted malt and a moderate hoppy bitterness. It’s a really nice imperial, but unfortunately the little anonymous in the amount of Imperial Stouts. It lacks just a little special character to step out of the crowd, and a well-tempered Limfjords Porter from Thisted in Denmark could easily have done it as well.

stevoj (4032) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 28, 2015
Growler from Albertsons. CO2 fill pours out with a fast rising, creamy beige head that stays fluffy throughout. Dark roast grains and bitter chocolate dominate the aroma. Taste follows with tons of roast grain bitterness. A hint of alcohol warmth at the finish, but mostly bitter. Top notch RIS.

Dense black pour with a tall, creamy tan head. Aroma of roast malt, coffee, chocolate and alcohol. The flavor has lots of roast barley giving it a rich, bitter bite. Roasty with lots of burnt edges. Not sweet and sticky.
