sudomorph (609) - Barrie, Ontario, - JUL 7, 2013
Pours black with a one finger, tan head that fades to nothing very quickly. Smell is slightly sweet with coffee and chocolate.Taste is very sweet. Hints of coffee but not much.Syrup texture. Low to medium carbonation.Not a fan.

Frothmeister (559) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 14, 2014
341ml bottle. Pours black with ZERO head, and very little visible carbonation. Lots of dried dark fruits, boozy, light balsamic notes, treacle, light notes of dark chocolate, caramel, and faint smoke on the nose. Sweet, and full bodied with dark fruits (lots of raisin notes), molasses, brown sugar, dried cherries, and sponge toffee up front that leads into very sweet dark dried fruit, molasses, light bitterness, espresso, faint milk chocolate, and dark sugar. This beer doesn’t know what it wants to be, and comes across like a doppelbock/imperial stout hybrid. A showcase for the many families of dark sugar flavours that exist in the beer world. ie. too damn sweet.

Couleur pétrole son parfum est dominé par l’acool mais laisse filtrer des arômes de torréfaction et de sucre. Au gout c’est le café qui domine... agrémenté par des notes de figues séchées sur une finale légérement amer et de chocolat noir caramelisé. Excellent liquide à gorge. ahaha!

BeerBeCue (103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 23, 2014
341ml bottle poured into snifter. Pours a deep ebony brown with no head. Only a tiny ring and tiny timid patched of foam. Aromas are of deep, caramel malt, toffee, alcohol. I strangely don’t perceive much roast in this one. Taste is medium-high sweet, with some bitterness and slight acidity at the end of the sip. Body is rather full with a velvety, almost oily texture. Carbo is very low. Overall, it’s good, but not outstanding. Not worth the 4$/bottle in my humble opinion. It’s a try-it-once-and-forget-it offering, as far as I’m concerned.

milara (49) - Ste-Thérèse, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 27, 2014
Une imperial stout une fois de temps en temps ça fait du bien. Le seigneur noir m’a séduit avec son arôme, même si que je n’avais pas identifié ses flaveurs. Ma fiancé a dit pamplemousse sucré, peut-être. Personnellement, c’est à la rencontre de mes lèvres que j’étais satisfait. C’est rond et c’est chaud, enrobant. Au goût, j’ai fini par identifié le caramel écossais de qualité en forte dose. Le sucre résiduel se dépose sur nos lèvres rapidement. La finale est vaporeuse en alcool brun de qualité. J’aime beaucoup, mais deux de suite serait cherché le mot de tête!

Dark-brown color with almost no foam. Aromas of sugar, toasted malt and red fruits. Flavors are announced by the nose with a small alcohol taste. Brun foncé, peu de mousse. Arômes de sucre, de grillé et de fruits rouges. Les saveurs sont annoncées par le nez avec un peu d’alcool en plus.

glennmastrange (2255) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JAN 27, 2014
Bottle. Heavy molasses and burnt for the malt, light resin for the hops, light to moderate earth for the yeast, with tar in the backgound. Head is small, fizzy/frothy, light brown with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Flavo starts very dark brown. Flavor starts moderately sweet and acidic and a bit sou, then the long finishes is lightly to moderately sweet and acidic and lightly bitte. Palate is full, between creamy and syrupy with a soft carbonation and a sticky finish. The label says Imperial Stout but it’s pretty far from that. It has some good qualities though, maybe better classified as an American Strong Ale.
