Karol (506) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 10, 2014
Bottled. A black hole abyss of an imperial stout! Roasted malt, medium sweet dark chocolate, coffee, caramel with a bitter chocolate finish, some tiny notes of sweet chocolate cake. Taste is great! Dark chocolate, chilly spices, alcohol present but marginal. Some sourness in the taste, but not disturbing. Overall a kinda different RIS and hence very good!

12 ounce bottle poured into a snifter. Poured a thick, black with a khaki colored head of foam. Aroma has notes of notes of nuts, chocolate, and anise. Taste is mostly sweet. but I do get a lot of anise and nuts. Really quite good. Is this a George Foreman beer?

kevinsenn (975) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 1, 2014
Bottle form West Lakeview Liquors, Chicago. Pours black with thin dark brown head. Big roasty molasses aroma. Great roasty chocolate molasses taste; sweet and bitter like dark chocolate. Almost no trace of booze. Velvety smooth body. Great impy!

incredible aroma. dark fruits, tobacco, rum bread on the nose. very sweet without much of the soy sauce flavor that can overwhelm these imperial stouts. had a raisin-like, figgy character similar to a strong trappist ale. extremely dark brown head w/out any lacing.

Very well build imperial stout. Smoke, coffe, and chocolate in aroma. Coffe, nuts and little backround of spices finished with warming alcohol.

tom10101 (2216) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 19, 2014
Bottle (330 ml). Black with a medium slowly diminishing beige head and no lacing. Aroma of intense roasted malt, chocolate, liquorice and caramel. Taste is slightly sweet with a huge amount of roasted malt (not coffee though), chocolate, liquorice, caramel, molasses and light vanilla. Some alcohol warming in the finish, but it’s rather well hidden. Full bodied. Medium carbonation. Viscous mouthfeel. Roasty finish. Good balance. Not cloying. Surprisingly drinkably considering the style, the abv and the considerable amount of roasted malt. Very nice RIS!

bytemesis (2568) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - FEB 12, 2014
Bottle. Pours opaque black with a medium super creamy dark brown head that forms late but lasts a long time with great lacing. Aroma is super roasty with chocolate, molasses, anise. Flavor follows, rich and fairly sweet with good compensating bitterness. Perhaps a bit burned or smoky. Thick and creamy mouthfeel. Pretty nice effort!

gendv138 (335) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - FEB 12, 2014
Bottle poured into a Belgian snifter. Pours an oily black with just a hint of brown around the edges, half a finger tan head. Aromas of caramel, dark chocolate, vanilla, light peat, coffee, roast. Tastes of coffee, caramel, peat, dark chocolate, some sweet dark fruit. Medium-full body with a semi-dry finish. Pretty smooth for the ABV.

Vighals (758) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - FEB 12, 2014
Sort med tynt brunt skum. Espresso, mørke bær og lukt av mørk sjokolade. Salt og bitter smak. Kjedelig salt ettersmak.
