EricE (1368) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - JUN 19, 2011
Dark brown pour with a tan head. Acidic aroma with roast and coffee notes. Slightly tart flavor, creamy at first. A bit sweet. Notes of coffee and roasted malt. Fades to a very bitter hoppy finish.

GT2 (7896) - Carlsbad, California, USA - JUN 13, 2011
330mL. Poured a deep black to near ink with a thinner, tan, coffee head. Nose is savory, salty, black olive, fatty meat. Taste is dirty, bitter, ashy chalky, tea astringent. Lighter mouthfeel. It sounds bad, but I actually enjoyed this one. Very evident hoppy bitterness, earthy, pretty clean. No olive, brine, or saltiness.

ryan (3187) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - JUN 11, 2011
Big boozy, sweet chocolate nose with lots of molasses. The taste is moderately sweet, lightly bitter, dark chocolate, molasses and prune juice. Astringent and ashy.

Bottle at tasting. Black to brown pour with a thin tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, burnt malt, chocolate, coffee and licorice. Flavor is bitter and burnt and with a broad spectrum of flavors. Slightly watery texture. Nice brew.

TheEpeeist (3180) - Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 17, 2010
750 ml bottle. My 200th imperial stout rating! Black brown with tan frosting. Nose is chocolate, dark roast and hay with a touch of anise. Smooth medium body with soft sparkling carb. Taste is coffee and bittersweet chocolate. Hints of plum and citrus peel. Refreshing in its balance.

750 ml bottle shared by 12% Brian At 22 Euro, this one is steep! Good thing it is actually good. Pours a nice deep dark brown nearing black with a thin white head- lasting. Aroma is nice fresh roasted barley, nutty earthy slightly ashy dark chocolate, hints of smoke, fruity ester, plum fig, although mostly a clean straight forward ferment, hints of smoke and light phenol and licorice as well. Flavor is toast, biscuit, big roast, chocolate, licorice, light hops, some mint, light pine, grass, herbs, and a good medium caramel sweetness for backbone- bitterness is medium and it finishes not too sweet- yet not dry- just easy drinking. Good fermentation and clean all around. Pretty good. Very straight forward.

weaselkenievil (1094) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2010
More fine work from Marble, a lovely Imperial Stout. Black with a thin tan head. Aroma has more coffee and chocolate than the flavour. Flavour is good but could be a little fuller. Smooth upfront, more coffee in the finish. Tasty.
