500mL bottle, courtesy of garthicus. Thanks, Al! Pours a dark brown color; medium tan head with large-bubbled retention. Dense caramel, nougat, and viscous dried fruits in the aroma; some licorice. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: tons of licorice and charred malts; on the sweet side, with dark chocolate and caramel filling out the palate; very drinkable, with well-hidden alcohol. Lengthy, dark chocolate and licorice finish. The licorice note throughout is really quite nice.

Stine (1600) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 21, 2007
Poured from a 500ml. Opaque black with a red edge. Aroma suggests honey and maraschino cherries, chocolate, and urinal funk. Lovely and ugly in alternating bursts. Taste is hot, but not unpleasant. Chocolate liqueur and banana sugars, smooth hazelnut extract and cabernet. Venison and smoke on the back. Smooth, rich and mildly alcoholic. Dense, but the viscosity is amiable, and far from overpowering. Well made. Thanks for sharing, Alan!

SudsMcDuff (5864) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - SEP 8, 2007
Pours a struck match black .-.

has some delicious and flavourful complexities , some magic for sure: too many to list! .-.

the head is quite low for an imp stout but lacing is decent .-.

the alcohol is absolutely masked! .-.

For a Imperial stout, this stuff is amazingly smooth and just way to easy to drink! .-.

one of the greatest pleasures was to drink this beer. Slainte Ireland!!!

--A BIG thank you goes out to Garthicus for helping me obtain a couple of bottles!! and thanks to my uncle for driving and getting it!! and thanks to my mum for bringing it all the way to america!!!--

The beer poured a clear medium dark brown color. The aroma was roasty with cola notes and a moderate amount of alcohol fumes. The roasty flavor had some yeastiness mixed with the roasted malt. Mild alcohol taste. Mild bitterness on the finish with light pepper and a moderate warming senstion.

Strong. Perhaps too strong. Drank 5 of these one night. Donít actually remember anything about it.

bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 3, 2007
Strange aroma, with whiffs of white pepper or a bit of chili. Great bitter flavour serves the beer well, breaking the 10%abv beast up and allowing it to be drunk quite easily. Still donít know if I could down a half litre of it though.

JoeMcPhee (8510) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 24, 2007
500 ml bottle. Dark brown black beer with a thin off-white head. Aroma is very flinty and minerally. Lots of earthiness and a little bit of woody character as well. The flavour is very British, leanish body for the style with earthy hop flavour and a minerally bitterness. Very roasty without any supporting dark flavours (i.e. no coffee, caramel, or chocolate). A hint of licorice. Dry, roasty finish. A light peppery ethanolic flavour adds a bit of complexity. Itís probably the most unique imperial stout Iíve had to date and itís quite good in itís own way.

notalush (4910) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 24, 2007
Thanks to JoeMcPhee for sharing this rarity - an interesting, truly Irish take on an imperial stout - quite smooth and creamy, with a light roastiness and dry mineral qualities (like an amped-up dry stout) - dark chocolate and burnt character, a little leather on the back end - the alcohol content was completely masked - smooth and a pleasure to drink, but lacking the substantial character needed to make it "world class."

AndrewC (328) - Canterbury, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2007
An abominable beer. Heavy citrus hop (Iím informed theyíre Pacific N.W. hops) combined with burnt malt. A combination that should burn in hell

I really did not like this beer and thought it had serious brewing flaws. Thanks Jason for sharing. The beer pours to a really dark cola body with a thin khaki head and spotty lacing. The aroma is butterscotch and black malt. The best by date has not passed, but I think this beer is not very good. The flavor is coffee and butterscotch with basic black malt. Average palate but it seems to be a flawed beer and is slightly offensive to drink.
