DrSilverworm (6946) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 5, 2012
11.2 oz bottle, shared with Nova. Best before 2015. Nice, thin light brown head. Black color. Decent dots of lace. Nice, dry texture. Very light, crisp carbonation. Great bitter sweet taste. Nice, dark chocolate, coffee aroma. Pretty sure I like this better than Soft Dookie (which I had on tap at Jackie-Os), from what I remember. Nice, strong aftertaste. Tasty and enjoyable imperial stout to sip and share at a party. Nova liked it, she described it as "smooth".

essexcalf (172) - Essex, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2012
(On keg at the BrewDog bar, Camden, 26/4/12) Opaque. Light brown head, persisting. Mid-light carb. Aroma - Roasted malt, pine, dark fruit, raisins, molasses, grainy. Some slight tobacco & light smoke aroma and flavour. Lovely, rich aroma, with some lighter citrus too, as well as the vinous, sweet fruit; complex and mouth-watering. Taste - Perfect balance of fruit and roast, winey booziness, rich, moreish, sweet roasty malt, dry grapefruit, slight astringent, some peatiness, slight iron. Good hop tastes on finish. Medium body, creamy. Dry, roasty, slight smoke, highly aromatic, nice hoppy, long lasting, perfect finish. Damn good imperial stout, tasty stuff with lovely, lingering aftertaste stuck to tongue.

Tasted of roasty malts, coffee, bitter chocolate and a bit of smoke. The alcohol is well masked. The body is on the thick side with tingly, smooth carbonation and a dry finish.

budznsudz (571) - Audubon, New Jersey, USA - MAR 25, 2012
Quite a delicious stout this is. It is jet black with a creamy head that is almost brown. It tastes of coffee and dark chocolate with a spicy vanilla undertone that adds a wonderful complexity. Exceedingly smooth and delicious.
