Very drinkable for the ABV. Plenty of chocolate, with easy-drinking lactose flavors as well. Iím a fan, but it isnít the most complex, and the finish is a bit short for an imperial stout.

Bottle - Sweet dark chocolate and lots of cocoa. Jet black brown with a nice brown head. Sweet dark chocolate, cocoa and a milk chocolate finish. Tons of chocolate, bit on the sweet side. Pretty decent.

Bottle to tulip (thanks Ferris) Lots of chocolate, lots of caramel, a little rye, plum, and port. Dark silky looking black with a thin light brown head. Taste is caramel, chocolate, and loads of malts.

UXO (866) - CANADA - JUL 30, 2015
Appearance: nearly solid black with one finger of dense mocha head, excellent retention and decent lacing. (4/5) Aroma: chocolate, mild coffee, roasty malts, some dark fruit. (8/10) Taste: moderately strong sweet, moderate bitter. (8/10) Palate: full body tending a little to the watery, low carbonation, warming finish. (4/5) Iím not sure itís "making love to your mouth like a horny sorority girlĒ, but itíll do. The body seems viscous at the outset, but turns slightly watery midway. The bitterness does pretty well at balancing the sweetness, but it lingers a little too much, making for a little bit of an edge to the finish. Still pretty good, though! (16/20)

Love it. Pours a dark, viscous black with a thin tan head. The aroma is rich, complex and roasted heavily with a surprising amount of fruity notes. A bit too sweet for me with but heavy enough to balance out. Chocolate is plentiful with a bit of espresso, vanilla and a creamy, smooth finish. Warm with alcohol and a hit of bitter roasted notes. Delicious.

reebtogi (4891) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 25, 2015
650ml bottle pours black in color with a finger of light brown head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is chocolate with roasted grains and dark fruits. Taste is a dark fruity and chocolate malty sweetness with a roasted grain bitterness. Full bodied with modest carbonation. Mouth fell is quite smooth for such a high ABV ale. Overall, a star is born, as this is quite a tasty and well balanced Imperial stout.

Niksko (506) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 13, 2015
Pours very dark brown with a mocha colored head that fades quickly. Nose is syrupy black cherries, cola, slight acetone. Flavor is lots of milk chocolate, black cherry, cola, burnt toast, molasses. Interesting flavor, not what I was expecting at all. Very luscious and creamy mouthfeel with a medium to heavy body. A little fizzier than I would have liked. Pretty interesting taste. No real heat from the alcohol. Not too bad.

RedSox2004 (1449) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - MAR 1, 2015
Opaque black with a small reddish tan head and a bit of lace. Nice roasted malt aromas with hints of cherry and milk chocolate. Milk chocolate sweetness up front with generous amounts of coffee, and more modest contributions from dark fruits and caramel. Some smoke and warming alcohol are present. Medium to full body, no carbonation to speak of, creamy mouthfeel and a long smoky finish.

koleminer20 (1056) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - FEB 24, 2015
22 oz bottle. The pour is a light black with a decent darker khaki foamy that falls down relatively quickly with no lace. The aroma is pretty heavy on chocolate malts and a light roast. There is a strong lactose sugar influence here as well. Other than that, it falls Down pretty quick. The flavor is a little more complex. It's got a strong lactose to it. The chocolate and roast are surprisingly bitter, but the lactose dominates, almost to a point where it seems it might be affecting the beer in a slightly negative fashion. The mouth feel is definitely thin and creamy with a decent mouth feel. The aftertaste is surprisingly chocolatey and lingering. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
