MADpalace (219) - Budel, NETHERLANDS - JUL 1, 2012
Dark coffee black with creamy head. Not strong smell, bit soft freshness. Background smells licorice. Spicy tast with flavours of gingerbread and several herbs. Still not my favorite style of beer.

TheCametron (2209) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 26, 2012
Bottle with Ben. Black/Brown with a tan head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate. Flavour is definitly savoury. Soy Sauce. Plenty of booxe also. Not a particularly well balanced effort. Nice but not impressive for the style.

Aml42000 (622) - Washington, USA - JUN 24, 2012
Pitch black with a thin tan head. Layered nose with espresso, tobacco and roasted nuts. Full bodied stout with an intense roasted flavor. Underneath lurks almond and black fruit. Undercarbonated which takes away from the overall mouthfeel. Some hops on the finish which is extremely long.

BenH (3439) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 22, 2012
Bottle. Black with thin tan head. Strange aroma, very savoury, yogurt, wood, alcohol, soy, dark fruit, berries. Taste has more of a roasted character, chocolate, caramel, toffee. Sweet with a bitter finish and slight alcohol burn. Not really a fan of this

luttonm (3630) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 19, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2012 Small bottle. Metallic, lead. Rich, fruity, a bit chalky. Maybe over-aged. Alc bite, harsh fruit. Not the best RIS around, unbalanced and rough. (Update ... this needs to be re-visited, might have been a bad bottle. Other versions of this IRS have impressed me)

b3shine (7397) - Indiana, USA - JUN 19, 2012
Bottle to oversized snifter. Looks like a good RIS; pitch black with low carbonation and thin lacing. Smells good too; big and malty. Tastes nice with a pleasant mouthfeel. Very easy to drink. This is good stuff!

r464 (2168) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 18, 2012
Very dark with a nice, tannish color head. Roasty malt aroma. Toasty, roasty, and a bit charred with a nice cocoa taste, a bit of cherry and coffee, and a very smooth finish. An excellent stout.

jaghana (5092) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - JUN 12, 2012
Bottle 33cl, a dark beer with a very brown huge creamy head and good retention. Nose is on roasted and alcoholic side. Aroma is creamy on dark chocolate, coffee, smooth dark malt, pleasant aromatic hops, long toasted and roasted aftertaste, easily drinkable imperial stout, very nice.

Nocturne (1462) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2012
Draught at Port Street Beer House, Manchester. Black with a small beige head. Aroma is well-laden with roast and fruit elements. On the tongue a pleasant sweetness along with sharp blackberries and toasty malts occasionally give way to a more serious savoury umami facet. Not the easiest imperial stout to live with in the drinkability stakes, and some way from the top tier, but a decent effort.
