Excellent stout. Pours black. Aroma of coffee & chocolate. Flavor is moderate sweet and bitter. Full bodied. A deep, rich and flavorful stout. Much better than the 37 class rating.

This one is big, bold, and aromatic with a very licorice-like quality on the nose and tongue.

Black in color with a nice sudsy tan-colored head. Roasty, chocoaltey aroma. Light bodied, but full of flavor; roast-dominant flavor with a complementing chocolate character.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark... Like, black. With a creamy tan head. Surprisingly lively and fresh aroma. The flavour continues the surprises. Despite the dark stout beer the flavours are light and refreshing. Hints of licorice and citrus.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 onz bottle shared with Seb and Alex A: molasses, raisins, light roastiness, red fruits. App: pitch black small beige head. T/p: full body with sweet but short finish. Soft carbonation. Some warmness from the alcohol. O: OK. I prefer my imperial Stout with good level of chocolate/roastiness. Smells like when you enter a brewpub and they are mashing.

660 ml bottle from Winooski Beverage Warehouse. Aroma: roasted malt, licorice, molasses, coffee, smell that reminds us that when you enter a brewery. App: pitch dark with small brown head. Taste and palate: full body, creamy, smooth, light bitter finish. Overall: disappointed by this beer. The aroma really disappointed me. On the other hand the 75 IBU are well hidden.

Pour out of 22 oz bottle, dark brownish black pour with mocha head, aroma brought notes of dark cocoa, roast, coffee, slight spice. Taste is a mix of dark chocolate, roast, coffee, slight caramel, finishing sweet, slightly roasted. Reasonably priced for an Impy!

[2/14/15] Draught at Lagunitas in Petaluma. Black with a tan head. Roasty and coffee-ish aroma. Bittersweet flavor with roast, coffee and some dark chocolate. Full-bodied, creamy mouthfeel. Good stuff.

I love stouts. I also love Lagunitas and generally have a fridge full of their beers. While I LIKED this imperial stout, but I did not LOVE this imperial stout. Dark pour, tan head, roasty this and that, chocolate coffee malty just as you would expect. Off sweet and an odd bitterness on the finish that threw the whole thing just slightly off and seemed to bring the alcohol out too far. Drank this the day after a Ballast Point Imperial Stout and it just didn’t measure up.
