wickedpete (634) - Lexington Park, Maryland, USA - JAN 30, 2010
Bottle about 1.5 years aged. Pitch black body with absolutely no carbonation or head. Aroma is like pinot noir but also has some balsamic vinegar and dark chocolate. The alcohol is still noticeable in the nose though I’d hoped it would have subdued by now. It starts off with a wallop of sweetness and alcohol. The sugary sweetness is almost unnatural and the alcohol is mostly noticeable due to the burn in the mouth. A coffee roast dominates at the finish and in the aftertaste. It’s very thin on the palate and the lack of carbonation doesn’t aid this at all. I can’t envision a scenario where this would be en enjoyable choice.

Pours black as night. It's the first beer I drank out of a green bottle that was not skunked when I opened it. You can smell the booze from 6 feet away. Very very very strong Imperial Stout almost burns on the way down. One bottle for the entire cold night. The taste is your typical Imperial Stout but that high alcohol content really send it over the edge. You must experience this at least once - maybe twice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JoeMcPhee (8746) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 23, 2015
Black as pitch. Tarry and intensely roasty. Loads of char, vineous and salty. There is an interesting cooked fruit aroma with burnt plum and fig as well as a massively boozy finish. A big roasty/salty finish with a really intense salty character. Sticky and rich with a savoury finish. Soy and a bit of roasty sourness. Unique but not my bag at all.

Gethinbeer (2221) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - JAN 16, 2015
Jet black pour with a decent looking head and cling lace. Smoked peat aroma. Mix of flavours from winter berries, plum, raisins and fig. Salty, Marmite finish. Really hits the back of the throat.

RhetoricalAns (420) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 11, 2015
375 mL bottle. Very dark brown pour, thin dark sandy head. Aroma is dark coffee, bitter, not a lot of the alcohol that I was expecting. It shows up in the taste though, which starts out coffee, dark chocolate, licorice, then lots of alcohol warmth. Slick oily body, heavy body.

tandembrauer (349) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JAN 7, 2015
On tap at Cardinal. Pours black with creamy brown head. Aroma roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate, alcohol, slightly sour. Taste sugary sweet, coffee, roasted malt, alcohol, umami. Bitter-roasted aftertaste. Generally a good beer, but probably forms a "neutral taste" base for the barrel aged versions; it thus has only little own character for a beer that strong.

ametras (536) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 5, 2015
375ml bottle. Motor oil black with a frothy tan head. Flavors are burnt malts, licorice, chocolate and ethanol. Full body, moderate carbonation, syrupy texture. Unmissable alcohol kick. Not particularly enjoyable.

IPAgutten79 (620) - Skui, NORWAY - JAN 3, 2015
Svart utseende med medium høyde på det espressobrune skummet. Aroma av likør, sjokolade, lakris, røstet malt og kaffe. Smaken er stort sett samme som aromaen, men du kjenner alkoholen selv om det ikke er skjemmende. Søt, meget søt. Medium bitterhet i ettersmaken før du kjenner alkoholen varme godt nedover halsen. Tykk konsistens.

Werckmeister (194) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - JAN 3, 2015
tap at Beergeek Bar, Prague on 28/12/2014. black color, dark coffee colored hdead. smells of dark coffee, some chocolate, some caramel, liqueur, malty, some sweetness. full body, very full mouthfeel. very oily, tastes sweet & bitter, bitter chocolate, raisins, alcoholic warmth, quite heavy, a sipper, overall more sweet than bitter, liqueurish, chocolate sweetness. for me almost a bit too heavy, too much mouthfeel and too much sweetness, but still liked it. will give this another try from an (aged) bottle.
