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.

2014 and 2015 bottles shared. Thanks Jonno! Huge fudge chocolate nose with lots of dark fruit, cherry, marshmallow cream, roasted cacao nibs and coffee. Super complex nose. Wow it’s like drinking chocolate syrup really. Some toasted coconut and light vanilla cream with more fudge. Decadent for sure. Really nice imperial stout from Oz. Awesome.

ladnewton (1740) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2016
On tap at The Local Taphouse, Sydney on 16th September 2015. Thickly black with terra cotta declining foam and full lacing. Rich and intense roasty, aniseedy, cherry fruit aroma. Intensely roasty in-mouth with burnt coffee, a vanilla touch and Bourneville chocolate. Lingering coffee-flavoured roasty finish. Full-bodied with a smooth, yet engaging texture.

mcberko (12863) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 5, 2016
On tap at Bitter Phew, pours black with a large brown head. Aroma is intense, with loads of roasted malt upfront, with lots of hops, and even some bitter dry cocoa. Flavour is really rich, with heaps of roasted malt dominating, with some bitter dry cocoa and fairly prominent hoppiness. Robust palate, with an intensely bitter and roasty finish. Excellent.

Oakes (14884) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 19, 2016
On tap at the Local, St. Kilda. They had it titled "The Beast." Dark brown. Creamy, smooth coffee and refined milk 75% chocolate. A touch of alcohol in the finish lends it some heft late. Dessert in a glass, a nice balance of approachable impy that is rich enough to satisfy.

mrjez (379) - Osaka, JAPAN - OCT 5, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2015 330ml bottle shared. This was a stunning surprise. A rich chocolatey nose to die for, roasty and hints of coffee. The flavour was solid malts, chocolate fudge, hints of caramel sweetness and vanilla. Thick rich mouthfeel, full-bodied and very smooth. Solid and delicious.
