Strong aroma of chocolate and coffee, very, very smooth. Nut flavours linger on the palate. A great example of an imperial stout. Get it!

Tap at déjàvu. Pours a pitch black with a solid tanned head. Superb lacing left around the glass. Aromas is big on the sweet bitter cocoa, coffee, roast malts and vanilla. Taste has the bitter coffee and malts up front with the chocolate vanilla backbone coating the palate. Vanilla really smooths it out. Palate left dry and wanting more. 10% abv hidden well too. Pretty pleased ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750 ML bottle First batch Jet black pour, some ruby highlights. Nice light tan colored head. Good retention to the head. Good one finger before settling to a thick film. Nose is caramel, dark fruits, chocolate, some smoke and nuts. Caramel bomb was first thought. Taste follows nose pretty well. Caramel, dark fruits, milk chocolate, and nuts. Very smooth and silky. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Hides the ABV very well. Stock standard RIS. Easy to drink but not over the top.

BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 4, 2012
Bottle 9%. Dense black pour with a lasting, creamy tan head. Aroma is roasty and smokey with notes of coffee, dark chocolate, raisins and dates. Smoke, tar and roasted malt dominate the flavour with subtle undertones of chocolate and dark fruits. Mouthfeel is thick but slightly watery with subdued carbonation and a lingering roasty finish. Nice Imperial Stout overall, not overly complicated or aggressive but particularly easy to drink.

maneliquor (3361) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 10, 2012
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours pitch black with a small, dense lightly tanned head leaving some solid lacing. Head stays for the duration. Nose takes a little while to come out and is a touch subdued. Some sweet, bitter cocoa, biscuit, a touch of ash and espresso. Taste is very coffee forward with a lot of bitterness through the palate. Dark chocolate adds to the beer to give it a slight mocha tone throughout. Charred malts play a big role. Palate is soft with light carbonation. Easy drinking for a 10% brew. Tasty stuff

Jade (417) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 15, 2012
750ml bottle, poured into a snifter. Dark brown to black, with a creamy brown head. Strong coffee/chocolate aroma. Beautiful warming sensation, oaky, nutty coffee with chocolate - very nice.

hawthorne00 (2629) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 1, 2012
Bottle, 14C. Bottle says 9% ABV. Black with a large tan head that lasts and laces pretty well. Aroma of coffee, roasted barley, under-ripe berries. Taste is surprisingly unlike the aroma, apart from coffee: chocolate fudge, coffee, orange blossoms, some pine. Slightly syrupy, but not all that heavy. Dry, somewhat powdery finish, bitterness creeps up a bit. A lot to like about this, but the aroma didn’t really lead me into the beer.
