JustDrinkIt (261) - Arizona, USA - FEB 12, 2014
Nearly black pour with lasting caramel colored head. Aroma is strong coffee, chocolate, ashy roast. Flavor caries the aroma as well as vanilla, alcohol, toffee, and some chili.

This one is just PERFECT. Outstanding aroma of coffee, cocoa, vanilla and rum. Great taste of coffee, cocoa, chilli, vanilla, coconut and rum. Spicy, full-bodied imperial stout.

pepsican (1452) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - DEC 21, 2014
Thick black pour with a tan head. Giant alcoholic beer meets boozy barrel aging. Cloyingly sweet, boozy, thin body. Candy sugar, molasses, more booze. Coffee and chocolate poke around in this as well. Just too aggressive to be taken seriously.

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 20, 2014
Bottle. A very dark brown beer, clear-looking and topped by a small, dense, light tan head. The aroma has some caramel sauce, some booze and chili and quite a lot of coffee, vanilla and cocoa. There’s dark sugar, caramel sauce, chili and coffee in the flavor, with vanilla and dark sugar. It’s full-bodied and warming with a soft and pleasant carbonation. Lasting finish with a tad too much booze. The sweetness of this beer goes well with the alcohol level and the chili. Sure a nice one, really, really nice. 141220

ChrisSc (250) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 18, 2014
12oz bottle into tulip. Park Rapids, MN Appearance is black in color. Aroma is rum, vanilla, coffee, chocolate, alcohol. Taste is sweet, then spicy. Palate is rich and complex. sot carbonation, long finish. Burn in the throat. Overall, this is a very interesting beer. The rum complements the stout nicely. The spice on the end is interesting at the end. A good beer, but it would be hard to drink a whole bottle.

Whatup14 (802) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 16, 2014
Bouteille 355ml, 2014, 14%, gracieuseté de tom10101, Merci Tommy! Couleur noire opaque, mousse moka foncée évanescente, visqueuse. Arôme de cacao, pimenté, malt torréfié, chocolat noir, café. Goût de malt torréfié, un peu sucré, alcool imperceptible, chaleur du piment en fin de bouche, café noir en arrière-goût. Carbonatation moyenne-élevée, corps moyen-dense. Il y a beaucoup de choses qui se passent en même temps, mais le piment prend un peu trop de place.
