Bottle. Pours black with almost no head. Aroma is fig, anise, cocoa and brown sugar. Taste follows and adds great caramel, toffee and roast notes. Body is a little on the thin side but the finish is long. Delicious.

Ulysse (300) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 5, 2015
Roasting aroma. Black colour with thick dark brown foam made of mixed bubbles. Powerful stout taste. Creamy mouthfeel. Strong ABV. Probably the darkest and bitterest stout I’ve tried so far. Could be too much for some people.

Uma das melhores stout que já experimentei. Nem parece que tem 11% de alcool. Um pouco enjoativa por causa do doce. Muito boa.

The_Osprey (3241) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2015
330ml bottle BB Dec 2015, which I think makes this a 2012 vintage. Black, big foamy tan head doesn’t endure long. Aroma has piney hop, cocoa powder, rose petal. Body is medium, a little foamy, low carbonation. Taste is treacle, liquorice, drying roasted malts, some sharp hop and alcohol. Sharp booze. An aggressive beer. Still quite raw - could do with a couple more years I think.

Maris (1153) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - FEB 18, 2015
From a 330ml bottle on 18/2/2015. Pours close to black with a small tan head. Has nice chocolatey nose, with some roasted malt, lots of caramel, and a touch of booze. The flavour is powerful - again lots of chocolate (milk and dark), caramel, vanilla, soy, brown sugar, and treacle. It’s very sweet up front but the sweetness is met by a sharpish roasty bitterness, which lingers in the background. The palate is lovely - very creamy, with the carbonation modest. A very enjoyable impy.

swoopjones (6909) - Buffalo, New York, USA - FEB 15, 2015
Draft at Blue Monk, Buffalo NY. Medium bodied black pour, little head. Dark chocolate, roasted malts, touch of dark fruits. Good flavors, good aroma, solid IRS

highlandlad (1434) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - FEB 10, 2015
Decent Russian imperial stout slightly marred by the prominence of the 11% abv. Looks terrific. inviting aroma of coffee and marshmallows. Full mouthfeel. Vegemite notes and heavy alcohol. Dry, ashy finish. Richly flavoured but a bit heavy handed - I like my alcohol more integrated. (330ml bottle from Leura Cellars)

FunkyF (403) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JAN 31, 2015
Flaska från Saveur-biere. Svart med beige skum. Söt tung doft av portvin. Smak av kaffe och lite sötma.

olliejobbins (1324) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2015
330ml bottle. pours jet black with no head. aroma is burnt toast, molasses, caramel, dates and prunes. quite boozy taste. thin bodied, roasted malts and molasses. very nice long lingering after taste which brings up the score. really nice warmth from the alcohol. a very good imperial stout, just not exceptional.
