Bottled. Very dark amber colour, small brown foamy head. Aroma is roasted malts, some cream, mild spices, burnt wet wood as well as soem coffee. Flavour is roasted malts, a bit creamy, some chocolate burnt wet wood and alcohol. Mild dark dry fruityness. Pleasant, but a bit too burning.

omhper (21285) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 8, 2009
Bottled at PBF. Black, pale brown head. Chocolatey soy sauce aroma. Sweet and full bodied with compact but rounded malt. Peach and salt, chocolate and brandy. Drier finish with salty bitterness. A great dessert beer. Poerful, but not overpowering.

fiulijn (16428) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 29, 2011
Bottle from Firefly, Vancouver
Black color; generous beige head, compact. The aroma of dark chocolate and roasted malt is light, with a very light touch of coffee and dry cold smoke. The body is medium structured, the drinkability is therefore eased; without being too strong, the roasted malt flavor is very good, almost coffeish, with some residual sweetness, with a late impression of liquorice; finally, in the end, the alcohol warms the mouth. Elegant Imperial Stout.

TBone (14175) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 4, 2009
Bottled (PBF). Opaque black color, small beige head. Nose has kind of medicinaly toastyness, light apples and light coffee. Tastes a bit like baltic porter, not much milk stout. Toasted malts, some coffee, light sweet lactose notes. Feels less than 9 %. Ok, but not as good as average 3.72 here indicates.

Theydon_Bois (12736) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2012
IP trade in Montreal with Patrick for this one. Poured from a 500ml bottle (Mar ’12) into a goblet to a luxurious black colour with a generous creamy beige/light brown head that, whilst reducing, kept its presence throughout the drinking experience. On the nose I got sweet milk chocolate, a little roasted malt and perhaps caramel/fudge and a pinch of coffee lurking in the background but ’sweet’ was the overwhelming word! Taste wise not as sweet as I had expected, which was a good thing from my point of view! The chocolate flavour was definately at the ’sweet’ end of the spectrum rather than ’bitter’ and had a milky taste to it also lightly roasted malts present. Not a big punchy flavour as one may expect from a high ABV imperial stout but well balanced and highly drinkable none the less! Enjoyed the mouthfeel on this beer, very creamy and smooth, top end of medium bodied but not as full as most 9%+ beers of this ilk. low to moderate carbonation - spot on ! Overall a good imperial stout, but perhaps a little too creamy and sweet to be a world beater in this category, none the less it was a fun beer that I enjoyed and will happily revisit!

Koelschtrinker (12665) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAR 30, 2014
Vollmundig malziger Antrunk mit weichen Schokoladennoten, die eine milde Süße aufweisen. Der Alkohol scheint dabei etwas durch, süß röstig, schokoladiger werdend. Kaffee, reife Banane. Vollmundiger Nachgeschmack mit leichter Vanille und kurzzeitig brennendem Alkohol. 9/11/9/10/9/9

thewolf (11495) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2010
Bottle. [thanks, cfrancis]
Pous completely black with a staying, rather large, light-beige head. Mild aroma with dark chocolate, a hint of smoke, some coffee and lactose. Low to medium carbonation, fine light dry and light creamy palate. Flavour is kinda mild but very elegant. No sign of the 9%. Milky darkish chocolate, quite sweet. The lactose adds a smoky hint. Fairly sweet overall, but not in a bad way. Good.
