Glossy black pour, with a toasted-marshmallow-like head. Pretty. Lots of bitter chocolate, and a really nice roasty note that stops short of the "burnt to hell" roasty that a lot of brews have. This has a great warmth of flavor that I really enjoy, and while it’s definitely a high-ABV brew, it doesn’t seem too boozy. Big and thick - it coats your mouth, and while the flavor doesn’t have quite the punch that some American RISs have, it’s a really nice brew.

deyholla (7158) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 7, 2011
Bottle. Pours black with a creamy dark brown head that dissipated slowly to the edges. Aroma has notes of roasted malts and coffee with an extremely bitter backing note of very dark chocolate. Flavor is similar roasted malts and coffee in the beginning but they are overtaken by an intense dark chocolate finish.

obguthr (4179) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - FEB 16, 2011
Prune, licorice, and raisin nose, a little shitty with grassy hop accents. Black with a medium tan head, some lacing. Licorice and raisin, lovely proportions. Kahlua finish with a piney hints. Alcohol is pretty noticeable. Pretty freaking awesome.

nbutler11 (1267) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 12, 2011
Bottle from Holiday Wine with a purple label. Black pour with a khaki head of foam. Smells and tastes of apple seeds, cream, oak, cocoa, and a touch of running alcohol. A bit ununified to me.

lusikka (6609) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 11, 2011
330 ml bottle.
Pours a pitch black colour with a patchy beige head. Aroma of strong roasted malts, coffee and some chocolate. Flavour of pleasant roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, raw hops and also some dried fruits. Full bodied with a thick mouthfeel. Very pleasant.

Bottle at home. Pours an opaque black with a medium beige head. Smells of alcohol and prunes. Sweet with aromas of liquiris, dried dark fruits, toased malts, and dark chocolate. Full bodied. Medium to soft carbonation. Dry finish with aromas of English liquirish and dried fruits. Nicely balanced.

JoeMcPhee (8746) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 24, 2011
Tap at RNH. Pitch black pour with a thin head. The nose is lightly earthy with a bit of heavily roasted malt. Rich with a lot of black pepper toward the finish. The beer is chewy and rich but it’s not cloying or over the top. A little bit of rich leathery character. Dry cocoaish character toward the finish along with an assertive roastiness. Earthy hop bitterness toward the finish. Intense but tasty.

Defreni (2689) - Husum, DENMARK - JAN 22, 2011
Flaske: Kulsort motorolie flyder udaf flasken. Flot mokkabrunt skumhoved og en dejlig brændt duft gør at her ved du at der er kvalitet. Smagen er meget typisk amerikansk imperial stout, men den holder sig også indenfor sikkerhedens grænser. Med 11% er dette ikke så svært så helt oppe at ringe er man ikke over øllen, men den er da bestemt et besøg værd.
