kambei70 (551) - - MAY 17, 2014
2014 bottle to a tulip glass. Pours pitch black with a small, dense dark khaki head with brown and ruby at the edge. Aroma is grainy with a little soy/Worcestershire (kind of a sweet BBQ sauce. Some over-ripe dark fruit and roasted malt. A little chocolate. Taste is dark chocolate, vanilla and cherry up front, then fades into a sweet roasted malt and molasses flavor that is surprisingly grainy. Ends with with a sharp coffee bitterness with notes of grassy and floral hops. Velvety smooth, thick mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Koskela (270) - Marysville, California, USA - MAY 13, 2014
Pure chocolate with a hint of grape come from this thick dark brown brew with no head. Its a very full bodied brew with no alcohol taste or much of a burn but is extremely chocolately with a hint of smoke or a roasted flavor. There is not much carbonation but a great brew overall.

skullgeorge (34) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - MAY 8, 2014
On tap at the Hoppy Pub , Thessaloniki. Pours deep black with a thick brown head that leaves laces on my snifter. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, roasted malts and alcohol. Taste is bittersweet full of coffee, dark chocolate, liquorice and some hints of dark fruits. Full body with low carbonation and a dry bitter aftertaste. One of the best imperial stouts, in my opinion.... Brew gem !!!
