Tap @ Mikkeller & Friends. Black pour with a deep dark brown head. Aroma is a beauty - chocolate ganache, fudge, sugar roasted hazelnuts, sugar cane, rum, vanilla, a nice coffee presence that is a lot like cappucino. Amaretto and toasted almonds as well. Really good! Taste is not close to being as smooth and elegant as the aroma, and is surprisingly roasted and bitter - the barrel comes through strongly, a clear alcohol presence in there. Strong toasted notes, black liquorice notes n masse, molasses and a hint of tar. Then a considerable sweetness of dark chocolate, burnt caramel and the spicy rum notes. Aroma and taste are surprisingly different. Body is oiy and very viscous - lots of sugar left in this baby. Would dig more if it wasnt as strong on the tarry roasted notes. Really good!

Growler poured into a snifter. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma of rum, roasted malts, a lot of chocolate and coffee, and a little bit of bitterness. Flavor the same with such a great blend of rum and dark, roasted malts. Smooth, oily texture. A great beer with the rum adding a lot to the imperial stout.

JulienHuxley (2939) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - MAY 6, 2013
From growler, shared by tom10101. Pitch black pour with thin veil of brown foam. Multi layered aroma, vanilla, molasses, coconut, rum, cake, caramel, fairly dim roastiness, definitely on the sweeter side of things a carribean treat. Chocolaty flavor, roasty acidity, rather dry compared to the aroma, was expecting something a lot sweeter and dessert-like. Palate is silky, creamy, a bit light for an american IS but quite enjoyable nonetheless. Could use more body but an interesting original take on the good ole IS.

Minderbinder (1693) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 6, 2013
Growler 500ml. Pours black with very low brown head. Some lacing. Aroma is of caramel, malt, alcohol, fruits. Taste is of caramel, wood, vanilla, chocolate, roasted malt, alcohol. Palate: Medium-full bodied. Overall: Surprisingly "ligth" body.

Ungstrup (29134) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 3, 2013
Bottled. A brown beer with a thin brown head. The aroma has notes of coffee, chocolate, and vanilla. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt, coffee, vanilla, and chilis, leading to a roasted finish.

hopdog (8796) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2013
Flip top bottle. Dark brown, almost black with a tan head. Oaky / woody, rum, roast, vanilla, chocolate, and coconut. Rum came out more in the tastes and more as it opened up.

Growler (500 ml). Thanks to Etan! Pitch black with almost no head. Aroma is rich and complex with rum, vanilla, fruits, coconut, roasted malt, oak, spices and slight chocolate. Taste is moderately sweet with vanilla, fruits, coconut, oak, cacao, spices and acidic notes. Full body. Low carbonation. Good Imperial Stout, but not a top-50 beers in my opinion. I would be interested to try it on tap though.

Hoppypocket (408) - Trois-rivieres, Quebec, CANADA - APR 28, 2013
500ml growler from Tommy, thanks! Pours a pitch black with no head and no lacing. Aroma oak, vanilla, spices, cocoa. Taste has some vanilla, big coconut presnce, light cinamom, cocoa, some acidity. Full body and very low carb. Good beer but not mind blowing. Maybe if it was a fresher growler it would be better..

Bottle thanks to Brian, nice dark coffee pour with no head. Aroma is nice sweet caramel dark fruit/raisin aroma. Taste is big creamy chocolate, with extreme barrel flavors and finishes with night dark fruit and finishes with a nice oak. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

April 25, 2013 - growler shared by brian. Super excited to try this. Dark brown pour with no head. Nice aroma with a touch of rum. Taste was very sweet and had a mild tartness. Didnt live up to the hype for me, but would have been nice to try on tap.
