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.

snoworsummer (2166) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 24, 2014
Draft at BJís Tysons Corner. Pours black/brown with a foamy light brown head and thick creamy lacing. Smells like sweet caramel, chocolate, coffee, and syrup. Tastes like bitter toffee and burnt coffee. Light/medium body and low carbonation.

kramer (5005) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2014
Clear dark brown, almost black body, small creamy nitro brown head. Nose is nicely roasty with a bit of coffee and caramel. The flavor is way too sweet with a ton of caramel and a slight burnt rubber on the finish. Medium bodied and sticky with the usual nitro feel. Not so good this one.

kevinator (950) - The Colony, Texas, USA - AUG 15, 2014
This reminded me of a milk stout. Roasted malt and woody aroma. Dark brown, like their porter, with a creamy white head. This had a nice palate with a smooth creamy texture and relatively low carbonation. Flavor was roasted and boozy with a hint of chocolate malt. Good and not too heavy.

DrSilverworm (6478) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 29, 2014
Full serving on tap at the Cincinnati location, with a nitro pour, complete with descending nitro particles. They kind of linger towards the top though, strangely. Finger of khaki head. Leaves good, thicker lace. Up front, I get a lot of dark fruit flavors in the aroma. tastes kind of English or European style, versus the assertive, bitter roasty American styles. A little bit of roast still, some dark chocolate, and coffee. Syrup, light molasses flavor. Medium to bigger body. Kind of slick, sticky texture. Smooth, creamy, nitro texture to the carbonation. Moderate bitter taste, moderate sweet, just a very light bite to it, but itís reasonable for 8.5%. Solid stout. Iíd prefer a bit less sweetness, though... (itís clear where the amped-up ABV comes from). A bit more earthy hop and roast flavors, less with the fruit please.

Iphonephan (3303) - McLean, Virginia, USA - JUN 13, 2014
From a growler shared at home. Pours a dark cola brown with a thin tan head. Light licorice nose. Flavors of coffee, licorice and dark fruits. Medium bodied. Smooth, slightly bitter finish.

Beerman6686 (4370) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2014
This poured a darker brown with a beige head. Aroma of roast, cola and dark.chocolate. flavor was similar, almost lactoy which OS weird for an impy. Overall better than expect.

HIGHB4LL (555) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 31, 2014
On tap at BJís in Fort Collins. Appearance: finger of thick creamy tan head, dark brown color, clear, great lacing. Aroma: chocolate, roast, molasses, very malty. Palate: full body, smooth creamy texture, soft to flat carbonation. Taste: sweet malt to even sweeter malt with light bitter finish. Overall, very nice palate, but maybe a little cloying for my taste.

MadRobin (1964) - Silver Spring, USA - MAY 23, 2014
On tap 5 oz. sample at BJ's Restaurant and Brewhouse in Vienna (Tyson's Corner), VA. Opaque, near black with a creamy tan head and excellent lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, dark roasted coffee and bittersweet chocolate. Taste of roasted malt, dark roasted coffee, bourbon, bittersweet chocolate, tart black cherries, blackberries, molasses and light citrus. A nice take on a classic Russian Imperial Stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
