mcberko (6438) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 17, 2011
Sampled on tap at PIB, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of sweet roasted malts, sugar, licorice and booze. Flavour is quite boozy, with licorice, some oak - finishing boozy and oaky. The booze and oak cancels out any other complexity this beer may have otherwise had. Just drinkable.

Terminus (3241) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - MAY 16, 2005
22 oz bottle-pours a deep brown hue with a faint tan head. doesnt really look imperial, more a big porter than anything else. not much going on in the apearance. nutty notes with some toffee and coffee. sharp burnt finish of black patent malts-very charr-y. some hops also in there as well with some notes of oxidization. average.

Ratman197 (9802) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAR 9, 2006
Bomber poured a translucent reddish black with a small,diminishing brown head. Aromas of molasses, coffee, bakers chocolate and some dark fruit. Palate was medium bodied. Flavors of coffee, roasted malt, bitter chocolate and a faint hint of licorice with a slightly astringent, dry finish.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - MAR 27, 2005
22 oz bottle. Black color with a low-level, filmy tan head. Not a lot of hop aromatics in the nose (which is a good thing) and the malt aromatics are not exactly unpleasant but not really pleasant either. Hints of dried fruits, cocoa and abrasive hops in the nose. Strong, malty flavor, but very burnt and coffee-like and equally fruity, but not vinous with a banana infused yeast contribution. I expected more from Full Sail. This is pretty amateurish.

Ernest (6218) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 27, 2005
Head is initially small, frothy, brown, mostly diminishing. Body is black (not opaque). Aroma is moderately malty (chocolate, caramel), lightly hoppy (grapefruit). Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Blah. Nothing Imperial about this one. Sourish, watery, boring.
