24-12-10: Noire opaque, avec faible mousse blanche. Aromes d’épices, de café et touche de chocolat. Légèrement sucrée, avec une belle petite amertume. Saveurs de poivre bien présente avec de petites notes de café et de chocolat. Corps asser puissant. Finale poivrée.

Wow! Heavy coffee aroma with roast. The taste is very balanced which is dominated with bitter coffee. I would have appreciate more chocolate flavour in this one.

Wow. Awesome. Nice chocolate, coffe, caramel aroma. Flavor is roasty, slightly sweet, with a bitter finish with mild alcohol. Pours dark with a smal tan head. Full body. Yum. One of my favorites.

LiteWait (267) - New Hampshire, USA - APR 3, 2011
Slow poor from a 22 oz. bottle into a snifter produced large foamy, thick, beige head that shrank real quick. Decent retention. Nose of nothing but roasted malt. Taste is roasted malt with a hint of chocolate in the finish. For a Imperial Stout, this isn’t bad but nothing great. It doesn’t have one element to make it standout in any way. Greats much better as it warms. AirForceHops shared this bottle with me.

Klimaet (267) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - OCT 22, 2014
Bottle at Fermentoren. Pours pitch black with a dark brown thick head. Aromas of coffee roast, molasses, dates, raisins, some light chocolate. Taste is pretty sweet up front, lots of light chocolate, dates, raisins, dark sweet fruits. Dark bitter chocolate and coffee roast finish.

slitcher (266) - Freeport, Illinois, USA - JAN 16, 2010
2009 vintage. Pours an oily black with a thick dark tan head. Aromas of chocolate, coffee and slight alcohol. Flavors of chocolate, coffee and brown sugar with a fairly bitter finsh; some alcohol in the finish. This is an amazingly smooth and drinkable imperial stout. Excellent.

franksnbeans (265) - Columbus, Maryland, USA - DEC 23, 2007
Busted out the tree and the wife decorated the place so its only appropriate to crack open this Christmas brew. ’06 bottle. Pours out jet black with a pillowy cocoa head that sticks around for awhile. Sheets of tan lace along the sides of the glass. Smells of dark chocolate, some dark fruit, a smidge of vanilla and coffee. Taste starts big on chocolate and bakers chocolate, gives way to a little dark fruit then finishes with a bitter hazelnut coffee finish. Lots of layers and nothing overpowers, I think the age has done this wonders. Velvet in the mouth with an insane drinkability with no ABV noticed. Early Christmas for my tastebuds

Swolf3 (262) - Elkton, Maryland, USA - NOV 30, 2008
Bottle thanks to GMCC2181. Poured a nice velvet black with dark tan head. Aroma is roasted barely, chocolate, and some licorice. Flavor is sweet chocolate, some coffee, caramel, and vanilla. Finished smooth as it started, and nice alcohol taste all the way through. A very good imperial stout from Lost Abbey.

smashteroid (262) - Alabama, USA - DEC 18, 2008
Served from bottle. Black color and a nice tan/brown-ish head. Good lacing. Aroma of malts, chocolate, and coffee. Flavor was very roasted with more hints of the coffee than the chocolate. Nice mouthfeel. Mild bitter finish rounds out a very high quality imperial stout.

hoppopotamus (260) - Santa Cruz, California, USA - NOV 22, 2010
A black pour with a light brown head that dissipates slowly. Aroma is liquorice, some dried fruit, chocolate, a hint of booze. Flavor is sweeter, some toffee and chocolate, with some burnt notes. ends biterly, from both the hops and the roast malt.
