12 oz bottle shared. Pours a jet black with a patchy tan head. Very smokey stout. Big roasted malt aroma. Roasted and smokey flavor, though lighter in body. A bit of caramel. A lot going on in this one. Good beer.

tom10101 (3157) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 22, 2015
Bottle (12 oz). As "Naked Lunch in a Copenhagen Heavenly Resto". From Sammy, thanks!

Appearance: Pitch black with a medium thick brown head and little lacing.

Aroma: Ashes is dominant, tobacco, roasted malt, dark chocolate and liquorice.

Taste: Ashes is the main flavor too. Tobacco, roasted malt, dark chocolate, liquorice and light bitterness.

Palate: Medium to full body. Medium carbonation. Silky/velvety mouthfeel. Long lasting ashy finish.

Overall: Lack a bit of balance, mainly because it’s too ashy. Not overly complex either. Not a fiasco, just a forgettable and average Imperial Stout.

EtTuCthulhu (1174) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - JAN 20, 2015
This beer pours a thick black color with a small brown head. The aroma blends dark chocolate, caramel and roasted malts, dark fruit, and booze. The taste is quite bitter, mildly umami, and a touch sweet with an aftertaste similar to cocoa powder (including the dryness). The palate fuses a medium-full body, slick texture, and a soft carbonation.

ajnepple (2695) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - JAN 16, 2015
12 oz bottle from Applejack into a snifter. Black appearance with a brown head. Aroma of dark chocolate, roasted malts, light espresso, caramel, dark fruits, vanilla and leather. Similar flavor, moderately sweet and mildly bitter. Medium to full body with ample carbonation and a lingering finish. Complex and pretty good, but ILYWMS is better.

BOD 231/14. Pours dark as NYC during a black out. Excellent head volume, lacing and retention. Nice nose of dark fruit (plums, dates) over a deep dark chocolate and molasses sweetness coupled with notes of roast and caramel. As it warms, anise becomes noticeable. Light full body with an excellent creamy texture. Normal carbonation with just a bit of effervescence in the finish. The flavor profile is intense, quite complex but lacks a bit in balance due to the strong alcohol background that tends to override what would otherwise be an outstanding stout. It begins with an oily sweetness over an anise background. As the anise fades, the rich malt flavors separate into chocolate, molasses and caramel. The middle is a significant rush of bitterness from alcohol, roast and hops. As the bitterness subsides, coffee and burned malt notes come to the forefront over a distinct alcohol background. The finish begins with a fading of molasses sweetness into the alcohol and the associated alcohol bite and burn at the back of the throat. it closes with a bit of dryness from the alcohol.

Beerman6686 (4779) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2015
This one poured a very dark brown with a tan head. Aroma was of deep roast malt, some dark.chocolate and coffee. Flavor was heavy roast, but not to the point of being ashy like some of their impys. Well rounded and tasty for sure.

12 oz bottle. The pour is jet black, used motor oil with a dark khaki head that falls down to a ring leaving some gold lace. The aroma is good. Heavy on roasted malt and licorice, but there is a delightful blackberry presence here. Maybe a little molasses on the back end. The flavor is definitely more based on the malts. There is a bitter licorice on the back end and then them a roasty sweetness. The mouth feel is oily, and doesn't hang around. There is a light carbonation and it's a little thin on the back end. The aftertaste is lingeringly dry and roasty. Not bad ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
