coachd (329) - Missouri, USA - DEC 26, 2014
Strong aroma of molasses, leather, soil, booze, roast, some coffee and dark chocolate. Smells great. Looks great too; pitch black with a tiny head of light brown foam that clings on to the glass. Taste is soy sauce, sharp hops, heavy roast, dark coffee and smoke. Warming booze heat and a slight red wine flavor in the aftertaste. Very heavy handed flavor; I’m looking forward to the bottle I am aging. Palate is smooth but a little light for the style. Overall good; ET knows how to make an Imperial Stout.

DSG (8448) - Tel Aviv, - DEC 26, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks Stas & Vova. Black with a bit of brown foam. Nice big dark chocolate aroma with some cocoa and coffee. Sweet flavor with dark chocolate, roast and a bit of dark fruits. Pretty full-bodied with a rounded mouthfeel. Very good.

M82 (401) - Kansas, USA - DEC 24, 2014
Pure black body sits beneath a slowly fading, creamy smooth, one inch, medium khaki head which eventually falls to a thin ring and a couple dots of lace

A festival of berries, pine needles, and grapefruit rind with dark roast coffee and smokey accents bridging into rich dark complexities of vanilla, treacle, dark caramel, and dark chocolate with a touch of alcohol spice and beef jerky on a heavy, mildly carbonated body offering a burst of spice as the residual opens, melting back to reveal balanced, extended waves of the previously mentioned components, another great imperial stout from Jeppe

12oz bottle code 231:14 09:36 served at 55º into 13.5oz Red Vanilla Lara Brandy snifter

swieca (119) - POLAND - DEC 24, 2014
Aromas of dark chocolate, coffee, caramel, roasted dark fruits, licorice. Dark with ruby reflexes and no head, only a ring. Some interesting sweetness in taste, mixed with roasty feeling, coffee and nice bitter finish. Medium body - expected a bit more. Oily texture, very soft carbonation.

SinH4 (1089) - Garching, Bavaria, GERMANY - DEC 22, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2014 Black color with small head. Looking good! Dark fruits, I think it’s like dry apricots rather than raisins or plums. Sweetness, roasted malts, and bitter chocolate. Super liquorice and well-balanced. Better than Port Brewing’s Santa’s Little Helper which I had just before. A very good one.

Bottle at Lincoln Wine Bar. Beatiful dark pour. Rich aroma, deep, smooth flavors of chocolate and roast malt. I’d like another please.

superspak (3416) - Michigan, USA - DEC 20, 2014
12 ounce bottle into snifter, bottled on 8/19/2014. Pours dense pitch black color with a 1-2 finger dense dark brown head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, licorice, raisin, toast, dark bread, leather, tobacco, light smoke/char, and roasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt, dark fruit, and earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, licorice, raisin, toast, dark bread, leather, tobacco, light smoke/char, and roasted earthiness. Good amount of roast/char bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, licorice, raisin, toast, dark bread, leather, tobacco, light smoke/char, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roasted malt, dark fruits, and earthy hop notes; with a nice roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a smooth, moderately creamy/bready, 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 very nice Russian imperial stout. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roasted malt, dark fruit, and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
