MrChopin (4303) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 9, 2012
dark brown, oily thin tan head with a life of its own. Heavy fudge, prune, and light roast-hop combo bitterness. Flavor is roast at front, chocolate and earth with cocoa mid before finishing with a perfect roast-chocolate balance. Thin profile accents fruit and roast profile, no sugar muting, but not the integration of Black note or the brash beauty of Rare.

MJGG (952) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 28, 2012
Verre, d’un fût lors du 2e anniversaire de Hill Farmstead. Arômes de malt torréfié, portant sur le chocolat noir et les céréales grillées. Robe noire et opaque, légère dentelle moka et effervescence moyenne. En bouche, le malt torréfié est vraiment très bien développé. montrant un beau caractère de céréales grillées et de chocolat noir. Les agrumes sont peu apparentes, contribuant peut-être une légère acidité. Finale très maltée sans être trop sucrée et l’alcool demeure très bien dissimulé. Une très belle Imperial Stout.

jackl (7069) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 28, 2012
Tap @ CBC. Deep hazy brown color with a tiny coffee brown head. The nose is coffee, sweet peaches and mocha chocolate. Some hints of mandarin orange. The taste is strong roasty coffee and lactose. Like vietnamese coffee and condensed milk. Burning sugar and light wood. The body’s full and very sweet. Soft carbonation. Very easy to drink. Nice.
