fletchfighters (1031) - - NOV 8, 2012
330 ML bottle Thanks to Owen for the bottle Black pour. Really nice dark leather brown head. Almost reverse cascading. Impressive and thick looking. Lots of bakers chocolate, burnt marshmallow, dark fruits and a lot of licorice. Little bit of char and ash in the nose. Dry as heck. Lots of licorice to start. Bitter licorice. Once settled down a lot of dark fruits and chocolate. Bold and dry. A bit too much alcohol for the ABV but a good RIS either way. One of the better one’s around here.

2012/2013 editions tasted.Pours a solid opaque black with a tan head. 2012 has better lacing. Looks magnificent. Strong malty, chocolate and cocoa flavours that finish with some coffee and some warming alcohol. The 2013 has more of a liquor taste. 2012 more of a caramel flavour. Both among the best beers I’ve had

jonno (2231) - JAPAN - JAN 30, 2014
Excellent, excellent beer. Hand pump. Smooth but viscous, rich and decadent but never oppressive and boozy. Big in all the right areas, like a Brazilian model. Could drink this all day until the alcohol knocks you in to next week. World class.

Brenhophead (531) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 23, 2013
1L squealer. Pours think glugy black with a nice dense mocha crown atop. Wonderful nutty/chocolate aroma with very faint coffee hints. Amazingly complex flavour within which the sweet dark chocolate dominate with some citrus hops? and also a bitter espresso coffee. Truly and excellent Imp stout.

Cola colour with a brown head that dissipates into a ringlet. Roasted coffee and nuts to the aroma. Strong and bitter, really cloying - quite nice though.

Pyobon (892) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 16, 2013
(Bottle) Opaque shiny black with the tiniest tan head. Pleasant complex aroma including raisins and hints of chocolate. Very full body, almost approaching syrupy, with soft creamy carbonation. The taste is full and rich and rather difficult to pin down. The start has a nice sweetness of the rich Christmas pudding variety (although without the spices) which steadily develops balancing tougher flavours including smokey burnt notes, alcohol bite and bitterness. The finish of sticky rich sweetness balanced with bitterness lasts a long time. Fantastic beer.

LesArgen (195) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 14, 2013
Aromas of raisin, roasted coffee and chocolate rise up from the dirty brown head atop this pitch black beer. The alcohol is prominent on both the nose and in the tasting, but in spite of that it’s very smooth. It has a lovely creamy palate and tastes a little like a Bailey’s. My only criticism is that it’s a little short.
