Very busy beer - vanilla, nutmeg, dark chocolate, pitted fruit, chilli with an oily body. Perhaps not as complete a beast as I like in my Impys, but still a very fun and decadent beer.

Bottle into tulip glass. Pours dark brown to black, nice fading tan head, tight bubbles. Super creamy roasted malt religious incense. Moderately sweet, vanilla, cinnamon, mild bourbon, superb green chili maybe, nothing jumps out over the individual tastes making this a very smooth, but very drinkable stout! Thumbs up.

Draft @ BrewDog Edinburgh. Aroma of dark roasted malts, dark chocolate, rum. Back with tiny off-white head. Tiny lasting. Chocolate and sweet at first. Goes into a moderate bitterness and dryness.Finish is dry. Texture is thick and carbonation is average.

TimE (3143) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 9, 2014
Very dark brown color. Really nice smooth nose with tons of fudge, dark chocolate, vanilla and cinnamon with a nice pepper bite. Moderately sweet mouth with mole, vanilla, cinnamon and anejo pepper. Very smooth, full body, rich with lots going on, but really well put together. Lovely stuff with tons of dark fudge in the finish. Excellent.

Light body, a bit of chocolate, not a lot, orange, raisins, a nice tanginess and mild hops bitterness. Extremely good. Among the best stouts I’ve tried.

HIGHB4LL (480) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 6, 2014
Bomber from the Bar (cade). Appearance: dark brown to black color, slight dark film of head. Aroma: big chocolate, bourbon, light prune, light chili aroma, and slightest vanilla, cannot really pick up the cinnamon over the bourbon. Palate: full body, oily texture, soft to flat carbonation, smooth, warming. Taste: heavy malty sweet with good bourbon tastes and light chili sweetness. Overall, very impressed with this beer, super complex, but nothing was overwhelming or over-represented in my opinion. Perfect amount of bourbon for me.

Bottle. Black. Aroma is milk chocolate, coffee, and roasted malts. Taste follows suit and adds sweet vanilla with a faint green vegetable note on the finish from the chiles. Semi-rich palate. Very good, complex layers of flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Osprey87 (1602) - WALES - MAY 2, 2014
Keg at Brewdog Shepherd’s Bush. Black with a big tan head that dies over a few minutes. Aroma - chocolate syrup and roasted malts. Body is medium, touch of carbonation, slightly foamy. Taste is mostly yeasty, artificial chocolate flavour, a little berry, some alcohol coming through but quite light for a 9% beer. Not really joined up - feels like a mixture.

BeerViking (2438) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2014
Tap at Brewdog Shepherds Bush, near black with a fine crema, spicy cocoa and roast malt on the nose, body is rich, winey and chocolatey, with a subtle peppery burn and an umami, faintly tart edge. Wonderful stuff.
