gyllenbock (5668) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 14, 2015
On tap at City Beer. Black with a small tan head. Sweet with chocolate, vanilla, toffee, coffee and dark grain. The mouthfeel was thick and the aftertaste was long. A beer to sip.

obguthr (4451) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - FEB 8, 2015
Sweet coffee, charred oak aroma. Black, thin vanishing brown head. Charred oak, vanilla, and raisins, coffee finish. Creamy, astringent, medium body, alcohol hardly noticeable. Underdelivered on the cocoa and graham crackers. Sweet with a very subtle vanilla note distinguishes this from other imperial stouts.

Scopey (8548) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2015
Bottle thanks to Leighton. It pours opaque darkest brown wit ha small tan head. The nose is soft, sweet, gooey chocolate cake, vanilla, marshmallow, nougat and fluff. The taste is smooth, soft roast, toasty, cocoa, mild spice, light vanilla, earth, mild coffee acidity, charred wood and a touch of alcohol. Medium body and fine carbonation. Great aroma, but not quite the taste to match. Decent stuff.

Love this imperial stout. Marshmallow sweet and very soft to the pallet. You can also really taste the chocolate and coffee in this one. Home run. Had at home ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Salmoniform (1203) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - JAN 29, 2015
Poured from bottle to glass. Dark hue with creamy brown head that settled. Aroma is chocolate, vanilla, caramel, toffee, cola, coffee. Mouthfeel is great with a full body and crisp carbonation. Taste is bittersweet with a slightly burnt finish. Overall this is a really nice brew.

Leighton (13620) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2015
Bottle shared in London - picked up at New Beer Distributors. Pours deep black-brown with a frothy beige head. The nose holds lots of sugary dark malts, burnt marshmallows, raisins, dark fruits. Medium sweet flavor with bitter scorched earth, charcoal, baking cocoa, dried berries. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly warming finish, a little sticky, with charred dark sugars, oily chocolate, earth. Not bad overall.

Ferris (7070) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 28, 2015
Bottle - Dark sweet chocolate, dark nice rich malts. Deep jet brown with a rich light brown head. Sweet, chocolaty and a long nice sweetness. Chocolate dessert sweetness, maybe too sweet?

mcberko (8738) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 28, 2015
12 oz. bottle, courtesy of lupulist (thanks Mark), pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out vanilla beans, some chocolate, marshmallow, and cocoa nibs. Flavour is lovely, with notes of vanilla beans upfront, followed by chocolate, and marshmallow. Very well-balanced and certainly not too sweet. Very nice stuff.

Have noticed big variations from batch to batch, but a solid brew overall. On the thin side for the style.
