Sampled at the 3Floyds Dark Lord party. Imperial? I dont think so. More akin to a Two Brothers Northwind. Then again, Im trying it with Dark Lord much on my mind. Lighter in taste, then, than Im looking for, but with a kind of okay fruity finish.

Bottle shared by hezron at the 3/25/06 Milwaukee tasting: Pours a nearly opaque dark brown with a thin wispy, lightly-lacing tan head. Sweet dark fruity, lightly smoked caramel chocolate aroma. Starts with a mild earthy sweetness and pleasant lightly smoky dry earthy flavor with dark fruity complexity. Nicely balanced, lightly warming finish with lingering fresh bittering hoppiness. A decent imperial stout that should age pretty well.

Twelve percent? Wow, this was the thinnest 12% Ive yet come across - more of a dark brown than the black I would expect - quite nutty, with quite a bit of artificial sweetness dominating - some earthy, woody notes try to make things interesting, but really dont.

Thanks to stonecrusher for this... Appears black with a small solid tan head that never fades out. Tons & tons of scattered lacing left all around the glass. Smell is of nutty black patent with a touch of lactose, caramel, anise seed, and coffee. Taste is of the same aromas. Mouthfeel is chewy, medium bodied, smooth, along with a semi-dry finish.

Thanks to weeare138. Pours a dark brown with some amber when held to light. Average tan off white bubbly head. Aroma of coffee, dark fruits, caramel and a bit of toffee, lactose and nuts. Flavors of the same but more on the sweet side.

Poured a dark brown color with a small, light tan head that leftspotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of nuts, roasted malt, wood, toffee, and a funky hint of chlorine. Taste of light roasted malts, chocolate, caramel malts, anise, and alcohol in the finish.

Courtesy of The_Enemy <P> Aroma is sharp at first with coffee and dark roasted malts. Then some sweet cream and chocolate aroma wafts in. Deep black with a firm and lasting thumb thick head. Very bitter fore. Lots of coffee and bitter burnt malts. Some dark chocolate and a mild creamy sweetness toward the finish. The burnt bitterness is by far the standout in the flavor profile. Almost has a raisin tinged flavor, but its hinted at more than realized. Not a bad brew at all, but could be better if there was more of a dark fruit balance to the bitter burnt notes.

12oz bottle.
Pours a dark opaque brown-black with 2 fingers worth of off-white creamy head that gradually settles down to a single-bubble layer floating on top. Small bits of lacing here and there. Aroma of coffee, sweet malt, liquer-like alcohol, and dry dark-roast grain. Flavor is mostly crispy-dry with some burnt-grain, plenty of dry-roast coffee bitterness, some sweet malt, a tinge of soothing alcohol and a nice bit of chocolate. Medium mouthfeel grows thicker as it warms. Palate is medium-to-thick, nicely tingly and a bit creamy. I presume they meant to compare this to Avery Mephistopheles, or at least the name so implies. In that case, they fell short of Averys complexity and intensity. Still, for the cost of 3 bottles of Mephistopheles, you can get 2 six-packs of this stuff. Pretty good effort and a hell of a bargain.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - MAR 31, 2006
Carmel-tinged black pour with a small cap of tan head that settles into a fine skim. Rum and coffee aromas, brown sugar, just a touch of smoke. Warming, clean rum flavor and a little coffee. Soft full palate. A perfect full-flavored but unfussy imperial stout. Thanks for the bottle Hezron! If this was available in my area I could easily be a regular winter buy.
