Huhzubendah (3093) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 3, 2015
Dark brown cola body with a quarter inch of beige head. Roast, chocolate, hints of coffee. A blend of milk and bitter chocolates. Light to medium in body with only mild alcohol heat. An interesting stout. Lighter with less roasty character than is typical. Pretty good.

procraste (304) - FRANCE - MAY 25, 2015
C’est léger, sans doute trop pour une I.R.S. Pas trop complexe en terme d’arôme. Un nez pas engageant ... Désolé mais ce n’est pas pour moi ... Trop alcoolisé pour si peu d’effets. Pour finir, des trucs dans la présentation m’agacent vraiment: La signature toute en volutes avec marqué "master brewer" en dessous / La mention 2012 vintage avec le numéro de bouteille à côté / le petit texte emphatique au dos .... Vraiment ça fait très "premium concon" !

330 ml. bottle. Pours dark brown with a decent tan head. Aroma of malt, coffee, chocolate, and fruit. Taste is roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee, dark fruit, and some vanilla. Strange bitterness at the finish.

Bozo_skeleton (824) - Grenoble, FRANCE - MAY 5, 2015
Brune sombre mais pas opaque, carbo genereuse, petit collet de fines bulles persistant. Aromes liquoreux, cuir, sauce soja. Petite note métallique à l’attaque mais qui disparaît après la première gorgée. On ressent vite la présence des 10° d’alcool. Cote saveurs on se place sur les fruits noirs, le réglisse.

mansquito (4456) - Nueva York, New York, USA - APR 24, 2015
New Beer Distributors, NYC bottle ($6ish): Pours near black with a carbonated body and a light beige head. Aroma is kind of minerally and metallic with hints of soy sauce, herbs, and chocolate. Taste is somewhat bitter. Some dark chocolate in there. Sticky sweetness is in there, but there would be no way that you could really call this sweet. Some lingering aftertaste. Alcohol is well covered if it is indeed this alcoholic.

Hopmaestro (847) - Örebro, SWEDEN - APR 16, 2015
Bottle: Vintage 2012: Aroma is soft roasted malts with a gentle shower of mild coffee. Taste is round and pleasant. Soft toffee, creamy caramels, soft roast with a small hint of wood. In the aftertaste there is a kind of lively fizz after all, almost like a drop of soy sauce. This was a very pleasant Imp. Stout and I enjoyed it a lot.

mlkmn (23) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 14, 2015
Smells like chocolate rum pralines, it’s a bit sweet, gives you a very nice note of 70% dark chocolate on the palate, with some hints of cherry. For 10% ABV it has surprisingly little alcohol in the actual taste, I would say that it’s a bit watery, too. From the very nice russian-style vintage bottle, I expected something a bit more exciting, but nevertheless a very good beer.
