Sask89 (410) - Regina, Saskatchewan, - APR 7, 2012
Pours pitch black with a thin creamy mocha head that quickly disappears entirely. Aroma is of dark chocolate, roasted grains, liquorice, and a subtle but noticeable cranberry/cherry scent. Taste is mild, a little fruity and chocolatey sweet, not bitter at all really. Full bodied, thick and creamy on the palate, with soft carbonation. Overall a nice imperial stout, different but average.

SuperTiti33 (456) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 14, 2014
Version vieillie en barriques de Jack Daniel's. Noire au dépôt important. Très chocolaté. Légère acidité provenant probablement de la canneberge. Chaleur d'alcool/whisky. Panais/terreuse. Hyper chocolaté. Épicé. Cannelle/muscade. Finale fruit séché/acide. Très bien.

BeerBaboon (1532) - FINLAND - MAY 31, 2014
Pours black with beige head that disappears and leaves very little trace. Aroma is berries, licorice, chocolate and roasted. Flavour is light to medium bitter, light to medium sweet, chocolate and roasted. Full and oily. Surprisingly, for an imperial stout this is a bit fizzy.

Idiosynkrasie (3626) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 21, 2014
750ml bottle. Darkest brown colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, tan head. Chocolately dark malty aroma, hints of cocoa, vague hints of dark fruit. Taste is dry, dark malty, a touch of roast, hints of dark chocolate, cocoa, a very cautious touch of dark fruit; bitter and minimally soapy finish. Monotonous, narrow, disappointing.

DutchDrebus (3876) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - APR 18, 2014
Bottle @ ZZT9 shared by me. Black colour with a small sized off-white head. Smells roasty, chocolate, coffee and fruity. Tastes roasty, liquorice, red fruits and a bit too much liquorice for my taste. Medium to full body, soft carbo.

angel77 (795) - oviedo, SPAIN - APR 9, 2014
Botella de 75 cl en el lúpulo. En el momento. 09-04-2014. Color negro intenso con muy poca espuma de color oscuro. Aromas flojos de chocolates algo tostados y ligeras frutas del bosque. Cuerpo medio con 8 vol que se beben bastante bien con no mucha sensación alcohólica y un paso por boca bastante suave gracias alas sensaciones de maltas chocolateadas. Sabores mas intensos cuando calienta. Chocolates sobre todo con toques dulces de frutas pasas y del bosque. cerveza bastante buena, sobre todo cuando va cogiendo temperatura. Para repetir aunque esperaba un poco mas de ella.

Schokoladig malziger Antrunk, weit weniger aromatisch als gedacht. Weich malzig bleibend, weich, geringfügig karamellig. Leichte Fruchtnoten, süffig, rund. 9/10/11/11/9/11

AgentAle (599) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 23, 2014
Aroma is a fruitiness from cranberries and slight vanilla notes. The rich maltiness is pretty subtle overall. Rich malt character with some caramel notes. The taste does dissipate fairly quickly. Very slight alcohol bite on finish with some minor bitterness. Very dark clear amber body with a head that dissipated quickly.

Pours dark ruby red color with a small head. Licorice notes and malts on the nose, faint dark berries also with mild yeast notes. Dark fruity notes on the flavor, caramel, yeast and some sweet nuts. Creamy palate, lingering malty finish. Nice.
