Pours black and thick with a tan head that rises as you pour.Aroma of coffee, roasted malts and hops. Powerful aroma. Tastes is almost overwhelming upfront-roasted malts, hops, burnt caramel, and coffee. Complex and very enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown, black with brown thin head. Aroma is hoppy, roasted coffee malt. Flavor is sweet roasted malt. Creamy palate. Good and I’d have it again, but it just didn’t quite measure up to expectations.

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2007 pours black with a decent sized creamy cola colored head. aromas of roasted malts and chocolate malts, hops, alcohol, and a hint of caramel. flavor is sweet, tastes of chocolate and coffee, a little unbalanced.

i’ve had some good imperial stouts, including the dark lord and the expedition stout, but i like this one a lot. maybe more than the dark lord, at least. pretty smoky, but a good amount. masks the alcohol well, and the pour and aroma were wonderful. very solid imperial stout.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours thick, completely opaque black. A monster of a flavor with big hops with grapefruit undertones, caramel malt, bitter chocolate, strong coffee. Alcohol was completely hidden at 60 F (until it kicks in, that is!). Try the Oak Aged version if you like the flavor but find the presentation too strong.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Købt til ølsmagning i City2 for 30 kr. (65 cl. flaske).
Øllen er sort og nærmest porteragtig. Smager meget af engelsk lakrids, men er bitter i eftersmagen. Har lidt kulsyre.
Smagte faktisk bedre ved 5 grader end ved 10. Ved 10 begyndte alcohollen at kunne smages, uden at den dog på noget tidspunkt blev for kraftig.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours black with a dark brown head. Very sweet. Has a strong caramel/sugary effect in the back of the throat. Port-like. nice warming alcohol in the finish. I actually prefer this one to the oak aged version.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2006 Served in a snifter @ 59 degrees. Pours the color of Hershey’s chocolate syrup, with a creamy head the resembles an over cooked flan. Completely opaque, and dense. Truck loads of American hop aroma. Grapefruit, and evergreen to be precise. Burnt sugar, Carmel, dried fruits are apparent. Each drink is bliss. The hop character starts with ’shock and awe’ type attack, then a big slap of rich dark chocolate takes the middle, and finishes like a bitter cup of gas station joe with chocolate flavoring. Top that off with a mouth filling body, and a slight alcohol burn, and you have a staple beer for any stout lover.
