Thanks Justin for this gift from Chicago. Pours a smooth black with dark head. Aromas are predominately dark roast coffee with notes of bitter chocolate. Flavours follow suit. Lots of coffee, some lactose and chocolate. Not getting a lot of vanilla with this though. Very nice imperial stout.

Very grapefruit citrus hop forward - lots of coffee and milk chocolate. Has a holiday spice note or two in there. Tasted cleanly bitter, medium roasted fresh coffee, and chocolates. Great hoppy stout ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Plovmand (7716) - Helsinge, DENMARK - APR 13, 2013
Bottled. Pours deep black with a creamy beige head. The aroma is quite hoppy with a decent amount of coffee. Some roast and light chocolate. The flavor has stronger notes of coffee than the aroma and notes of hops and roasted malt hits you later on. Bitter roasted coffee bean finish. Great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - APR 21, 2013
22oz bottle, batch #112, courtesy of Ratebeer Brackets. pours a deep, dark brown that sits black in the glass with a thin ring of khaki lace around the edges. aroma is great with heavy, rich black coffee, espresso beans, and cocoa powder backed by earthy topsoil, cake batter, roast, and very subtle vanilla. flavor is really delicious with a heavy dose of dark chocolate cake layered atop hazelnuts, espresso, roasted malts, and smoke backed by smooth lactose sugar, vanilla pudding, and even a touch of caramel. palate is full bodied and creamy with smooth carbonation and a lingering finish of roast and cocoa. overall, a damn nice effort from pipeworks.

burg326 (5253) - Florida, USA - APR 30, 2013
Bottle shared at the Tampa Tasting, poured a dark black color with aromas of fresh pressed coffee, light roast, some light hops and some earth. Flavors are the same, mostly black coffee, light bitterness and roast in the aftertaste. Pretty amazed at this beer for such a high abv, didn’t taste like it, a great beer.

Ataraxia (472) - Massachusetts, USA - MAY 25, 2013
Almost black, thin beige lacing. Very pleasant aroma of roasted coffee with hints of vanilla, chocolate malt, and caramel. Sweet, but in a balanced manner. Smooth, full-bodied, and masks the alcohol quite well.

laiti (7910) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 29, 2013
65 cl bottle @ home, Batch #74?, bottled 14.01.2013
Aroma has mocha coffee, some jalopeno‐like vegetables, chocolate and hints of licorice. Flavour has mocha, ashy notes, soy sauce and salty licorice. Rather smooth and silky palate. Too salty but definitely not bad anyway.

Habanero (3863) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2013
Bottled. Pours pitch black with a medium sized brown head with fair lacings. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee and caramel notes. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and with some alcohol. Full bodied,oily texture and flat to soft carb. A great impy.
