BBB63 (6509) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Bottle and served in my Stone IRS snifter (and yes a bottle I did NOT get from Eric Starnes) : Pours basically opaque with a small creamy tan head, oily viscous legs and some lacework. The aroma has extremely heavy vapours of dark fruits (prune, plum , black cherry, fig) with luscious rum barrel character. What I like is I still get lots of the base beer character of milk chocolate, roast, char, tobacco, leather, tar and herbal hops. The taste is not quite the level of the nose with the heavy fruit, earthiness and barrel fighting off some oncoming sour’d twang. Sweet but never cloy, boozy but never over the top, woody but not tannic. Mikey Likey this a lot... Hopscotch why didn’t I get this from you ;-)

Bottle shared by mattyb83, pours a very dark brown/black with an amber hue and a thin reddish tan head. Aroma of chocolate, dark fruits, vanilla, spicy booze, and roasted malts. Taste of chocolate, raisin, bitter coffee, tobaccoo, and rum. A nice Imperial Stout!

kbutler1 (1378) - North Carolina, USA - OCT 30, 2012
Bottle. Pours a dark inky black/brown color with a mocha tan head that collars around the glass. Big notes in the nose of dark fruit; dark cherry, raisin, and plum. The rum shows as well but pretty minimal. Heavy mouthfeel. Dark roast, molasses, and fruit notes all combine in this one. Decently balanced but a little dark fruit overboard for me. Overall, glad I tried it but I didn’t go back for a second pour.

Huhzubendah (3337) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 30, 2012
Bottle shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike! The beer appears pitch black with a thick, beige head. Another outstanding appearance from a Cigar City stout. The aroma is of rich, dense, roasted malt. The raisins really shine in the flavor. Oak and rum play secondary roles, while roasted malt takes center stage. Mostly well balanced, though roast emerges more than other aspects. Overall, another solid stout from Cigar City. Recommended. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-02-2011

mcberko (12398) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 26, 2012
750mL bottle, pours jet black with a light brown / tan head. Aroma is intense with sweet caramel malts, rum, and lots of boozy liqueur. Flavour is intense, full of rum, caramel malts, some slight licorice, and dark fruits (raisins). Full-bodied and complex, without any harsh notes. Boozy, but not distastefully. Very complex imperial stout.

Fred82 (2131) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 24, 2012
750ml bottle.
Appearance : Pitch black with very small head.
Aroma : Big sweet roasted caramel. Light soy sauce, light oxidation.
Taste : Ashy with sweet roasted malt. Caramel. Finish ashy with notes of spices and raisins. Nice woody smoke.
Palate : Rich, slick and thick.
Overall : Way too sticky and sweet. Almost hard to chug. Nice flavors but too sweet. Nice woody smoke, nice ashy notes as well. Interesting but too sweet, too bold and overdone... again.
