tkrjukoff (3902) - SWEDEN - MAR 8, 2014
Pours pitch black with a nice lacing brown head. Aroma is intense roasted coffee soy dark fruits. Flavor is just great velvety rich as aroma well bitter and aftertaste stays for a long time.

ChinoSkillzian (135) - The Hills, California, USA - JAN 14, 2014
Sampled at Woodshop 2011. Pours a deep black color with dark brown at the rim. Beautiful nose of rich cocoa infused coffee, creamer, vanilla custard, and Nutella. Creamy, dense palate, dripping with flavors of chocolate, rich coffee, Ferrero-Rocher, and medium vanilla. This was the best Imperial Stout I’d had up to that point in time.

Pitch black pour, dark brown head with reddish hues. Nose is huge gourmet coffee. Wow. That’s all I get initially--just a huge gorumet coffee bomb. Hard to tell it’s not just a cold cup of black coffee. As it warms the roasted malts come through. In the taste I get some dark chocolate and roasted malts, but mostly just huge kopi luwak coffee. Smooth big body but not quite as thick as regular Zhukov or AB Huna.

Opaque black pour with a tan head. Nose of roast malt and alcohol. The flavor is sweet with a noticeable malt bitterness in the finish.

TURDFERGUSON (3912) - Carrboro, North Carolina, USA - FEB 21, 2013
From a 32oz growler shared by Diego. Thanks so much bro! Super potent in every sense of the word. Rich coffee, cocoa, roast, light smoke. Flavor is pretty awesome. Fuck. Fun stuff.

thedm (4889) - Fort Wayne, USA - FEB 21, 2013
This bottled brew from a rating party poured a extremely small sized head of foamy finely sized extremely dark brown colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque black brown colored body and a oily lacing. The aroma was brown malt musty and dark malt. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a mellow dry aftertaste. The deep flavor contained notes of strong malt smoky vinous chocolate brown malt and dark malt. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

Leighton (9883) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2013
Growler at RBWG 2013. Pours oily brown with a faint, brown head. Huge, deep espresso aroma, some burnt malts. Big sweet flavor with dark, juicy berries, rich coffee, dark sugars. Full bodied with soft carbonation, faint warmth to finish, some syrupy dark sugars, more espresso, dark berries. Good stuff. Not a typical American impy stout.
