Great chocolate aroma, roasted coco bean smell, also a sweet smell, incredible tanish brown head, and that taste, come on man! That thick think milk shake body, bitter taste on the swallow but that lingering chocolate and coffee notes! Yeah it lives up to the hype! Someone needs to do a blind taste test between this and Speedway for best stout! Too close for me to call.

Pours a dark brown to black with a medium head of creamy light brown foam. Medium thick body with plenty of lacing. Nice roasted malt aroma. Smooth creamy texture with a full mouth feel. Roasted malt flavor with a hint of dark chocolate. Hides the alcohol well. Smooth finish with just a touch of bitterness. OK but not great. Enjoyable but not the best.

Multiple 12 oz cans over the last few years. Surprised I have never taken the time to rate. Aroma of burnt sugar and toasted malt. Flavours are toasted malt, molassses, chocolate, and maybe black licorice. Very well balanced and always enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Maris (1383) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - SEP 16, 2016
From a 355ml bottle on 16/9/2016. Pours black with a big thick tan head. Has a slightly unusual aroma of chocolate malt, with some strong basement notes. Taste wise, it’s huge and gorgeous - masses of sweet chocolate and caramel, some nuts and a hint of licorice, a substantial roasty and hoppy bitterness, finished off by some warming alcohol. The texture is creamy and viscous with moderate carbonation. Exhibits great length and complexity. An outstanding impy, let down only by a slightly unusual and subdued nose.

"Yeah!! I finally found some of this stuff. Pretty standard imperial stout look jet black with a thin dark cap, some lace left behind. Aroma was a little unusual hints of olives? and roasted nuts. Mouthfeel was nice and thick, good coating. Flavor similar to aroma slightly sweet, a little nuttiness, alcohol is definetly present. Overall its pretty good but not an upper tier imperial stout. Re-review 11-3-2012 on tap: I like this more and more and tonight found it on tap. Absolutely wonderfull, rich, roasted, toasted goodness, thick lace, alcohol is hidden pretty well. Lets bump this from a 3.7 to a 4.2. Originally rated on 11/18/08

Lots of chocolate and caramel. Very thick and sweet. One to be sipped alongside a glass of water. Not too boozy. Very impressive for and imperial stout.

Bardzo klasyczny imperialny stout. Palony czekoladowy, kawowy, słodki i lekko gorzki. Ciało mogłoby byc większe, ale i tak klasa.

UPDATED: AUG 12, 2016 Canette datée du 28/08/2015, bue après 1 an. Robe noire opaque surmonté d’un mince col de mousse beige et dense. Arômes de malt rôti, noisettes et chocolat noir. Quelques effluves de grains de café entiers de moyenne torréfaction, anis et caramel brûlé. En bouche, chocolat et noisettes grillées enrobés d’un malt rôti épais. Suivent des saveurs de café au lait, poudre de cacao, bois sec et où le malt rôti revient en force pour créer un longue amertume avec une touche chocolatée. Texture onctueuse et corps rond. Haut taux d?alcool imperceptible. À la hauteur de mes attentes.

This is a big, meaty impy stout. Pours like oil from the can, with a dark brown head. Thick and sticky, loads of burnt caramel, roasted malt, bitter dark chocolate. Intense and delcious.

Dark, opaque black with a light brown frothy head. Chocolaty, malty aroma. Smooth creamy feel, with light sweetness up front and bitter dark chocolaty finish. Very nice.
