rickgordon (3846) - Göteborg, - DEC 19, 2013
Bottled. Black with creamy tan head. Rich aroma with heavy chocolate up front, followed by coffee, caramel and light light vineous. Flavour is heavy malty and chewy - and rich! There is chocolate, leather, coffee and caramel. Bitterness is medium-high. Big body with good residual sugars. Excellent beer!

bottle @ home peach black, dark brown head coffee, raw licorice, walnuts, wood, a hint alcoholo, cocoa beans really complex taste, more carbonated than I expected, first cacao, some licorice, cocoa bean and coffee beans, after some time an explosion of enjoyable raw licorice balanced with milk chocolate. Great Imperial Porter

Estebanik (459) - Lublin, POLAND - FEB 6, 2016
Niska, ciemnobezowa piana. W aromacie duzo deserowej czekolady. Po ogrzaniu lekki aceton, niestety. Aromat jest dosc gesty, zapowiada niezle cialo. Mimo to, w smaku piwo jest stosunkowo wytrawne, i o zgrozo wysoko nasycone. Palono - czekoladowa goryczka. Bardzo przecietnie niestety, wysokie nasycenie to nie jest dobry pomysł na risa.

Tap at Taphouse. Black, creamy brown head. Dry spicy chocolate bean aroma. Licorice, dark roast, herbal hop, Berrylike. Medium full body, Sticky sweet on the palate, dry coffee finish, salt licorice aftertaste. Unbalanced even as a sipping beer.

dfinney23 (2531) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 1, 2016
It’s got some smoke and ash without delving into ashtray -- a little surprising, given the name. Dark chocolate, dark coffee, and more dark.

Acid303 (613) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - JAN 31, 2016
35.5cl bottle, served in Shaker glass. Pitch black colour with medium tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, caramel and hints of smoke. Taste is the same with less smoke and a slight bitter touch. It’s a very intense brew, the roasted flavours last for quite long on the palate. Full body, good carbonation. Very good Imperial Stout.

JK (5411) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JAN 31, 2016
This is good but nothing new. It has the evil twon house flavor to it. Which i assume is from the yeast. Carbonation is low. And thr head quickly fades. Heavily roaste malt. Some coffee and chocolate flsvor. Heavy palate. Flsvor had a little spoce, amd i get some plastic in the aftertaste. Some cardamom maybe, and i taste clove with a big sip.

Brentv (569) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 30, 2016
From bottle. Pours black with a one-finger beige head that leaves a good quantity of lacing on the glass. Rich coffee aroma with a bit of vanilla on the nose. Taste is coffee and plenty of roasted malts. Neither sweet nor bitter, this is dry and has a dry finish. Medium full mouthfeel.

colui72 (490) - HONG KONG - JAN 29, 2016
Pours thick and black, with a small brown head. Nose is coffee, roasted malts, vanilla. Taste gets the same, and booze, boozy beer. Malty, with sweetness and bitterness quite balanced, some hops. Medium body with low carbonation. Pretty decent sipping ale.
