Bottle at De Molen 2nd Tuesday tasting. Poured almost black with a thin tab head. Some vanilla in the aroma which is very present in the flavour along with liquorice and coffee. Nice to taste, but I found the alcohol a little overpowering. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Vaiz (4107) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - SEP 11, 2012
Bottle @ 2nd tuesday tasting @ de Molen, hosted by dEnk. Black pour, foamy tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, ripe fruits, vanilla, shoe polish and some spices. Flavor is bitter roasty, some breay yeast, somewhat salty and a bit rough. Very decent body, a bit out of balance. Nice brew.

DuffMan (8628) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 10, 2012
Fresh growler, shared at RBAG Summer Session 2012. Murky black body, light brown head. Aroma has elements of sweet (vanilla), roast (coffee, chocolate), and bitter (something stemmy veggie green). Sweet rich palate, lots of milk chocolate, molasses, vanilla, with a light bitterness in the finish. Delicious! I think Fred Durst summed it up best when he said "I did it all for the Dookie! Yeah! the Dookie! Yeah! the Dookie! Yeah!"

phaleslu (8215) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 9, 2012
500 ml bottle from Randallís. "Soft DK" on the label. Pours an opaque, inky midnight brown with a big chocolate-milk colored head made of fine bubbles that leaves a sheet of trailing lace in the glass. Aroma of dark chocolate, roasted malts, spicy hops, nuts, earth, and some ash. Flavor of bitter dark chocolate, earthy hops, rich roasted malts, nuts, and ash at the end. Full-bodied, with mellow carbonation and a smooth, rich, and surprisingly bitter mouthfeel. Good imperial stout.

Smells like dark chocolate, coffee and a touch of alcohol. Taste is pretty much the same.... as avertised. Theres a really nice creamy mouthfeel, with some tingly carbonation. Palate is the best part of this beer for sure. Great typical imperial stout.

CanIHave4Beers (3790) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - AUG 30, 2012
Draught at The Beer Hall... Waterloo, IA.

The aroma is smoky and ashy with lots of chocolate. The kicker is the nice almond character that shows up as it warms.

The flavor is very roasty, lightly sweet, and overwhelmingly chocolaty. The beer is nicely bitter all around with a good hop character. Itís extreme in almost all itís elements, yet somehow balanced. This is certainly not the overly sweet imperial stout I expected it to be.

The beer is big on the palate and aided in mouthfeel by itís low carbonation.
