COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Combined with its full-bodied richness, this symphony of flavors is what makes Imperial Stout the ultimate sipping beer. BJís brewers donít hold back in their interpretation of this classic style.

prawlie (1433) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2016
Draught. Very malty, dry, with a light roast flavour. I got on with this, though it lacked the complexity of great imperial stouts.

chinchill (3777) - South Carolina, USA - MAR 14, 2016
On tap in Daytona Beach FL. Pours essentially black and opaque with an excellent head. Ruby highlights at the edges when in bright light. The head is exceptionally creamy and durable. The aroma has an unwanted but not very unusual sour note. Partially hidden alcohol. In contrast, the flavor has negligible sourness and obvious alcohol. Its moderately bitter. Some faint coffee and chocolate. Overall: disappointing

Kinz (3661) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - DEC 14, 2015
Sampled at Richmond location. Should note that they donít brew here. Pours black, decent tan head. Aroma is a big shot of chocolate and espresso. Flavor matches. Really rather enjoyable, a very solid imperial stout, with a focus on malt components. Slight pepsin. Nice stuff.

Maybe they donít brew this wonderful beer the same everywhere but, in the Phoenix area, it is very good. One of the best brews Iíve ever had .

ajnepple (4657) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 6, 2015
On nitro tap at the Fort Collins location. Black appearance with a frothy, lacy tan head. Decent aroma of chocolate, earth, and dark malts. Similar flavor, but just tasting dirty and off overall. Lighter, thin body for the style. No.

rlgk (16542) - GŲteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 31, 2015
Draught at BJ:s Restaurant and Brewhouse, Brea. Black beer with a nice lasting beige/brownish head. Roasted chocolate flavor, cocoa, tar, dark chocolate, coffee notes, some salty licorice. Roasted coffee and dark chocolate flavor, cocoa powder, licorice, some raisins. A bit from fullbodied, but i like this.

Aggiebob (583) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - OCT 6, 2015
Draft. Dark brown with frothy tan head. Nutty malt aroma. Flavors of dark fruits and roasted malts. Full body and strong alcohol kick.

Clarkdvm (374) - Florida, USA - AUG 29, 2015
Draft at bjs. Zero aroma, strange. Looks like a stout. Creamy yet thin. Metallic aftertaste. Not very good unfortunately

TheGB (576) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 6, 2015
At BJs in Boulder. Didnít say nitro, but it clearly is. Light aroma worth a very smooth taste. Taste is good, but not super interesting. Clearly well made though.
