Bottled May 11, 2010 bottle 654. One of my big all time favourites. Pitch black and good head. To my taste perfect stout. A lot of aromas and sweet enough, but not too much.

Draft at Rattle n Hum. Pours near black with a beige head. Roasty aroma with some dark fruity sweetness and a boozy hint. Rich flavor with chocolate, tobacco, roasted malts, some smokey notes, and dark fruits. Pretty delicious.

BREWMUSKCLES (2379) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 20, 2010
spicey, live and vibrant with poison ivy and fresh hop enlivened into an otherwise old brew. cheesy molded barley with none of the offense, so busy with flavors wafting in and out... you pick yours as they evade your palate. Highly demonstrative warm and interesting in itís self. What better can i say then a BEER DRINKERS diversion. Sweet tight finish.

Bottle #495/697. Interesting fruity flavor behind a hoppy front. Not what I would call an imperial stout, but very solid none the less.

murphym45 (769) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 15, 2010
On Tap @ Rattle N Hum. Dark brown, haze, bit of tan head. Aroma of smoke, caramel, meat. Smooth on the palate with coffee and smoke. Nice smoky finish, but meat on the nose is a bit unpleasant.

DruncanVeasey (7634) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2010
Tiny wax-sealed bottle. Not often I get my hands on one of these babies. Pours like tar with a level tobacco-yellowed tan collar. Aroma of burnt flowers, fizz, alcohol, Cointreau, orange jelly. Harsh, alcohol-sodden warm oozing grapefruit, dark chocolate and incense. Too boozy and too fizzy. Numbs the tongue with alcohol, has pretty much zero roasted character, and is dominated by flowery, soapy hop to the point itís more a black IPA than stout in my book. No aftertaste but alcohol. Needs 25 years in the bottle or a dollop of North Coast Old Rasputin tipped in it.

Jade (422) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 10, 2010
Chocolate aroma, with an almost fruity (cherry?) touch to it. Dark, dark brown or coffee colour with a creamy but thin head. Bitter coffee and fruit flavour. Quite harsh when going down, but very warming. All in all a great beer.

Bottle from Kris Wines, London; shared with Slothez, post Fall gig. Poured a deep dark brown colour with a smallish tan head. Aroma was a concoction of roasted malt, hops, dark chocolate and spices. Full mouthfeel. Similar roasty complexion in the taste department with notes of dark fruit, coffee and booze. Sweetness and hop bitterness jostled for position. Plenty to like here but didnít quite bring the house down as I hoped it might. Ra Ra Rasputin Lover of the Russian queen There was a cat that really was gone Ra Ra Rasputin Russiaís greatest love machine It was a shame how he carried on........

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2010 Rating 200! 75cl bottle. Brewed 15-12-2009. Bottled 27-01-2010 (bottle 321 of 335). Black pour with a nice, brownish head. Hints of raisins, chocolate, some alcohol and dark fruits in the aroma. Taste starts great with raisins, some cofffee and some wood. Smooth finish where some hops come through. Aftertaste lingers on. Good balance and nice brew, but I prefer H&V.
