Merci à tous, merci la vie. Un premier nez où je détecte le piment, la boîte de cigare (du pin), le chocolat, mélasse, réglisse, le brandy de pomme semble présent (celui de Michel Jodoin est excellent en passant) mais je peux rêver. Un liquide collant parcoure ma bouche, les saveurs sont intenses, du piment chili (j’adore, j’ai fait poussé du Bhut Jolokia cette année) avec du chocolat. Inutile d’écrire des heures, cette bière est tout simplement sublime.

Merci à Jool pour le partage! Corps ténébreux et mousse très foncée, presque noire. Des parfums de biscuit, de raisins secs, de noix de coco, de petites baies, de bois, de chocolat à la cannelle, de prunes compotées, de vanille, de réglisse, de mélasse et de piments, de strudel aux pommes, de miel, de tabac sucré et j’en passe. Des saveurs qui livrent la marchandise. Un corps soyeux, faiblement infiltré par les bulles. Mais quelle superbe texture! Une finale piquante et nécessaire pour apaiser toute cette opulence. Un impérial stout carrément fou.

Enjoyed at Freetail Bottleshare 2015... The crowd went wild... Got a 2 oz pour, finally tried it... Thick chewy full bodied beer with tons of dark chocolate, mocha, cinnamon and barrel notes... Alcohol content almost unnoticeable... Really enjoyable and drinkable huge stout... The king of it's style ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2nd best beer of all time. Not sure what else I could say that hasnt been said already except this: POUR SOME OVER VANILLA ICE CREAM. You’ll thank me.

Draft at Huna Day. Never rated it for some reason...Poured into my small snifter. Deep black liquid with small mocha head. Powerful aroma with deep chocolates, cinnamon, cayenne, oak barrel, prunes, and anise. The taste is an amazing balance between the dark fruits, chocolate, cinnamon and cayenne. BIG mouth feel and think full body. Chewy finish. Really delicious.

High expectations for this one ! @ Mega imperial stout tasting part 2. Pours black, with a big and dark head. Smell is intense on cinnamon side. Taste is spicy cinnamon, sweet, raisin, black malts. Bit bitter. Not very impressed to be honoust. Expected this to be balanced and great, but the balance is hanging in a far distance from this beer.

Wow. Epic bottle share. Pours a pitch black color with a medium brown head. Aroma is boozy, roasted malts, touch of bourbon. Flavor is taken over by that Apple brandy barrel. So thick and chewy. Amazing!

Pours thick and black. roasty malty notes with cinnamon and vanilla. Slight pepper and a distinct barrel flavor. This is a one of a kind beer. seek it out.

Bottle at all killer no filler tasting. Pours an extremely viscous consistency. Jet black in colour with virtually no head. Aroma is cinnamon, spices, slight rum. Taste is chilli heat, cinnamon heat, cinnabuns, apple brandy, sweet rum, cacao, hint of spiced apple crumble.

Thick. Most notable flavor is cinnamon, bit of chili pepper skin, and maybe a hint of twang from the AB barrels. I wonder if I’m not getting one particular flavor because everything is so well balanced or not. The Rum and AB barrels just work awesomely with this base. Some warming alcohol presence in chest. Just outstanding
