Bottle thanks to my brother. A pitch black body is topped with a light orange brown head. Lots of molasses and dark chocolate. There is also some prune. The taste is cola ans tobacco. Prunes and smoke in the backend. An ashy finish with hints of anise. Rough with the booze burn.

ajnepple (2280) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - OCT 22, 2014
330 ml bottle purchased at Crooked Stave in The Source and drank at home. Black appearance with a small, thin, lingering brown head and minimal lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate, espresso, vanilla, molasses, dark fruits, light earthy notes and a touch of wine. Similar flavor, rich, malty and complex with moderate sweetness, light bitterness and a vinous finish. Full bodied, smooth and creamy on the palate with soft carbonation. Overall, this beer makes for a nice sipper and the alcohol is hidden quite well.

dnicolaescu (856) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - OCT 11, 2014
BOTTLE 33 CL. Look: pitch black, smallish espresso head. Aroma: sweet strawberry marmalade, light roasted not the meld into the sweetness, sweet chocolate, cherry liquor, some alcohol. Taste: it is sweet, marmalade, roast is in the back, no alcohol perse, but you can feel the spice, Moderate bitterness which is half roasted espresso and half hops. The body is a nice balance between drinkability and richness. Excellent!

JacopoDeola (12) - - OCT 10, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours dark with beautiful and very persistent brown head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee and caramel. Taste of coffee and chocolate, medium roasted. Good, but i would expect more body with 11% abv.

Garrold (1470) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2014
Bottle. Brewtique, Macclesfield. Clear, very dark red. Thin, dense, sticky, coffee coloured head. Dark chocolate. Dried, stone fruit. Cocoa powder. And refreshingly, no smoke. Taste is fruity dry, cocoa bean sweet, with a tad of earthy bitterness. Palate is soft, rich, and chocolate smooth. Finishes dry, and long, gentle bitter. Drinks way under the ABV. Lovely, mouth numbing, and rich.

superspak (2690) - Michigan, USA - SEP 27, 2014
330 ml bottle into snifter, best before 6/2015. Pours dense fairly pitch black color with a small dense dark brown head with good retention, that reduces to a thin lacing cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, toast, toffee, dark bread, light nuttiness, raisin, plum, light char, and roasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malts and light-moderate dark fruit notes; with good strength. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, toast, toffee, dark bread, light nuttiness, licorice, raisin, plum, light smoke/char, and roast/toasted earthiness. Good amount of roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, toast, toffee, dark bread, light nuttiness, raisin, plum, light smoke/char, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity and robustness of big dark/roasted malt and moderate dark fruit flavors; with a nice roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a very creamy, moderately slick, and lightly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice imperial stout. All around great complexity and balance of big dark/roasted malt and moderate dark fruit flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

w_adwersarz (174) - Cracow, POLAND - SEP 20, 2014
Aromat z butli kakao. Barwa czarne bez prześwitów, z minimalną pianą, która szybko się ulotniła cośtam krążkując na szkle. Kawa, ciemne owoce, odrobina kwasku od kasy, likier i odrobineczka alkoholu. Pełne, oleiste, nisko wysycone, z czekoladowa goryczką która dość długo pozostaje. Żona jak spróbowała powiedziała "O k@#wa jakie niedobre" co jest niezwykłym komplementem dla tak pysznego piwa.

earwaxcowboy (5) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 14, 2014 does not count
33 cc bottle, drinking temperature 14c. aroma, coffee, blue cheese, charcoal, wasabi. Pitch black thick body, light brown head and great lacing. Oily and syrupy palate. A bitter aftertaste that keeps on lingering for a long time... hmmmm
