Dark brownish pour with 1-finger dark brown head. Nose is dark patent malt, dark choc, molasses, and hefty hops. Tastes malty, with mild coffee, heavy hops, slight rauch, some bitter coffee astringency late, and some port notes late. I got more rauch notes late, and definite heat, with plenty of hops throughout.

Pours a deep black with a creamy tan head that laced. Aroma of milk chocolate, vanilla, light alcohol, fruity notes and caramel. Flavor of some metallic notes, up front roasted malt, smoke, very dry and a hoppy bitterness.

Slipstream (2023) - USA - APR 19, 2010
On tap at The Ginger Man. Heavy floral aroma. Light to medium body for the style. Alcohol turns out to be a lot higher than the flavor suggested. Coffee, baking chocolate, and the right amount of sweetness. Some hops pep up the finish. A very fine imperial stout.

bhensonb (11055) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 18, 2010
Bottle. Pours black with a low tan head. Nice slightly tarry aroma of dark burnt malt. Cofffe. Full and thick in body. Mild carbonation. Thick and sweet with lots of burnt malt bitter, and I think coffee. Finishes dark and bitter. Very palatable indeed.

Ughsmash (7135) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 15, 2010
Thanks to Keith for the 2009 bottle.. 500mL. Poured clear, very deep brown with a rich cap of chocolate head. The aroma picked up burnt black patent and lesser molasses malts upfront, with chocolate and very faint honey behind.. well-roasted and warm overall. The flavor found the same black patent and molasses hits at the core, laced with a very interesting cherry wood and lactic impression.. some espresso bitterness around and through the finish.. black patent, chocolate, and sour lactic notes on the warm finish. Medium-plus bodied with low-moderate carbonation on the palate.. the roasty sweetness and sour notes canceled out the boozage well.. balance was good, and this was mighty tasty!

jarow (237) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 14, 2010
On tap. Pours black with a nice tan head. Nose is dry and roasty with burnt coffee, dark chocolate, toasted malts. This stuff is THICK, smooth, chewy. Taste is more dry roasty goodness with toffee and chocolate. Finishes long and dry with the bitterness of a strong espresso. A pretty nice example of an imperial stout.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 13, 2010
500ml Bottle: Aroma of chocolate, slight soy sauce, light coffee, light caramel, malt, cream, and a hint of roasting. Poured black in color with a small, beige/tan head that diminished but lasted around the edges. Opaque. Very slightly sparkling. No lacing. Flavor is medium to heavily sweet. Tastes of malt, slight smoke, chocolate, light bitter coffee, light roasting, slight wood, and slight tobacco. Medium body. Oily, then dry texture. Soft carbonation. Malt, roasting, chocolate, slight coffee, and slight tobacco finish is dry. 11%ABV is completely hidden throughout. A very good RIS.

RichardGretton (4247) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2010
Bottle. Pitch black beer with a light brown head. The aroma is roasted, mildly milky chocolate and gently bitter. The flavour is very bitter and roasted. Overall a nice deeply roasted and very bitter beer.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 9, 2010
Bottle shared by Nqualls. Pours a deep brown black with a brown retentive head. Moderate roasty aroma. Nice body on this, not too thick or syrupy, but full with average carbonation. Malt profile of coffee and dark roasted malts countered by a semi dry spicy bitterness. Finish is a lit astringent, losing a few points with me. Otherwise enjoyable.
