Sweet malt with a savory saltiness like soy sauce. Tickleish hoppiness. Faily typical, but well done and hides the alcohol well.

Coffee coffee coffee. That's the game and heaviness on this beer. Smooth and complex. A little too over the top in the coffee direction to be a perfect score but if looking for heavy in that direction this is a winner. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"courtesy pfoxyjohn...pours dark brown, almost black, but not quite. body is medium-full. smaller than some impies i’ve had but not bad. aroma is a tad on the weak side. chocolate, malts, licorice. no sign of 12% til it’s close to room temp. i;d have guessed 8-9. a little more bitter in the finish, with more cocoa in the flavor. nice, but not with the depth of character that the best impy’s have."

Draft. Dark pour, listed as 8% abv. Cocoa, dark fruits, pretty nice russian imperial stout.

JonnyMadison (77) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 8, 2014
Bottle. Very dark and rich, strong chocolate and fruit. Very smooth. Tastes great on its own, but did not work with the pizza I was eating, giving everything a bitter aftertaste. Good flavor for imperial stout.

Bacterial (2163) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - APR 15, 2013
Pour from a 12 oz bottle - thanks Bob! Dark brown pour that is slightly reddish. Tan head is creamy. Nose is massive chocolate and dark fruit. This beer might be infected, but in a good way - sour cherry, chocolate and a slightly sour finish works really well with the sweet malts. This seems to be a happy accident, for me anyway!

islay (1462) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 22, 2013
12 oz. bottle, consumed on 3-18-13. Scents of chocolate-covered raisin, dust, milk chocolate, mocha, coffee, and toffee. Pours a nearly black dark brown with a deep amber hue and a small amount of beige head. Excessively sweet, sugary taste features flavors of dark chocolate, coffee, bonfire, caramel, and brown sugar. Roasted, lightly bitter aftertaste. Full-bodied and lively in the palate. Overall, okay, but not very good at all by the high standards of the style.

Nuffield (3802) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Smokey aroma and flavors, with notes of a German rauchbier and salami. Less chocolate than other imperial stouts. Finish lingers with some of the chocolate, especially as it warms. Sourness comes out when paired with salty food (in this case I was eating pistachios); milky notes. Not the worst imperial stout but not a great one either. Bottle.

cbfobes (2677) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - DEC 28, 2012
Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a very dark brown that has a nice red hue when you hold it up to the light, a thick tan head and lacing through the entire glass, aroma has a ton of chocolate on the nose with some burnt tobacco notes coming through as well, but I really dig it, the flavor has a nice amount of chocolate on the front end with a little bit of coffee coming through as well, the abv comes through a little bit in the finish but wouldn’t think this one is 12% by any means, mouthfeel is thick, really enjoyed this, good freaking stuff.

Sammy (9442) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 30, 2012
Bottle from O’Reilly’s in late summer. Pours thickish looking very dark brown to black colour, with a bit of white head. Aroma, some roast and chocolate. Above average mouthfeel, though not at today’s standard of IS.Good drinkability, competent for the style.
