Made with the most heavily peated malt in the world from the Bruichladdich distillery. Almost pitch black and opaque, small head. Furiously peated aroma, hiding the malt, licorice and dark chocolate somewhat. Very full bodied, thick mouthfeel, like fluid bread. Dark chocolate, loads of peat, lapsang souchong tea, chocolate cake, culminating in an almost endless aftertaste that also has licorice.
Alcohol varies by batch.

Pours an opaque black and a massive soapy long lasting tan head that leaves some lace. Aroma is peated malt up front, roasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee and as it warms up dark fruits come out. Flavour is quite peaty, moderate alcohol warming, mild bitterness, dry, coffee, earthy, dark dried fruit and some dark chocolate. A very interesting mixture.

I’m actually not a stout fan but I heard that this was good so I thought I’d give it a go. I’m so glad that I did. Very smooth taste, a touch of caramel and a very pleasant aftertaste. Looked wonderful in the glass.

33cl bottle. Brewed on 16 November 2010. Bottled on 16 December 2010. Pours pitch black with a huge light brown creamy head. Very good looking. Lovely aroma: dark chocolate, smoke and hints of red grape (subtle). The flavour is coffee, lots of roasted malts, sweet chocolate and hops, all backed up by a warm sensation in the palate. Looks even barrel aged, maybe two years and a half inside the bottle helped in that regard. Full mouthfeel, perfect carbonation. Really nice Imperial Stout.

Abijen (2512) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - MAY 6, 2013
Pours a black beer with a not very long lasting head. It smells roasty and coffee. The taste is great. A bit smokey/roasted and the usual coffee and chocolate taste.

langeveld12 (441) - NETHERLANDS - APR 28, 2013
Pours a large frothy light brown head that mostly diminishes. Aroma contains straw, roasted, burnt and nutty malts, dark chocolate and strong coffee, citrus fruits, dough, leather, earth, sweet fruits like grape and raisin, smoke, licorice, alcohol and peat. Flavor starts off light acidic and light bitter, then goes to sweet, to be quickly followed by peat and light bitterness, light sweetnes and light acidity. Body is full and syrupy, carbonation is soft. Good one! Contains lots of fruits, but peat kicks in making them indistinguishable (they're not pished away, they're still there). The total of flavors and aromas and the peat make this beer differ from other imperial stouts. Balanced and complex.

Aquilo (627) - Berkeley, California, USA - APR 22, 2013
Black with a thick tan head that settles into a rocky foam. Aroma changes as the head settles. It starts out as molasses and coffee. As the foam settles, petrol notes come out, and finally it becomes earthy with notes of pine and toffee. Flavor is moderately bitter and rich. The viscosity is thin for an imperial stout, but it is silky smooth. Very good overall.
