Very nice black in the glass. Wonderful aroma of coffee, spice and brown sugar. Tasty belgian yeast upfront with a trailing dark cocoa, spice, and liquer notes. Overall, deeeelishus!

A decent stout. Black color, The high alcohol content and oak comes out in the aroma, almost bourbon like. The taste is dominated by the oak but has a slight sweet licorice finish.

Sampled on 10/6/2012. This Imperial Stout pours an eclipse black color from a corked and caged 750ml bottle. Medium sized beige foamy head with decent retention and nice lacing. The aroma is chocolate, coffee, roasty malts and yeasty. A medium bodied Imperial Stout. The malts are choclate and coffee, fruity and sweet. The hops are herbal and earthy. Lively carbonation. Yeasty and spicy. Hints of oak and chocolate. A nice combination of flavors, from the coffee bitterness to the yeasty esters and the oakiness. Hides the alcohol well. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Pours dark black with a tanned head. Aroma of sweet chocolate and hints of spice, also some coffee notes. Good beer, perhaps somewhat unbalanced, but sometimes, I like it sweet!

dwyerpg (4567) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 6, 2012
This beer is pretty good, with a nice appearance and a strong chocolate flavor but the sweetness is too much, almost to make you taste the sugar more than the alcohol. Okay.

Sikash (240) - North Carolina, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Pours a nice dark color with a light tan head that lasts a decent while. Aroma is of banana, dark fruit, chocolate, and a hint of roasted malt and vanilla. Taste is of moderate sweetness and good complexity. It seems to be a very complex taste of banana, dark fruit, chocolate, ester, spice and a background of bitterness. The bitterness tends to linger on the backend. The mouthfeel overall is moderate with decent carbonation. I would drink this again but not sure if I would buy the bottle. I like Alagash Black better

TheBeerGod (5254) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Bottle - 750mL corked and caged. Black pour with a tall, foamy tan head. Aroma is black cherries, dark fruit, chocolate, molasses and soy sauce. Taste is big cherry notes, dark fruit, sweet malt, caramel, molasses, and chocolate. Body is medium-full with a strong bubbly carbonation and a moderate stickiness. Ends with more sweet malt, caramel, molasses, dark fruit, black cherries, candied fruit, soy sauce and chocolate. More a foreign stout than an imperial stout.

ksosh (6) - California, USA - OCT 2, 2012 does not count
Aroma was pretty intense, with a deep chocolately/roasty smell, with hints of banana and possibly cherries. Appearance was as expected from a stout - dark opaque brownish black, with minimal head. Taste is interesting... not sure I’m a huge fan. A light sweetness at first, followed by a combination of medium bitter taste and a light sour taste, with the sour finishing out the aftertaste. Palate has a full body that actually feels somewhat lighter due to a little carbonation on the tongue. Has a thick, creamy texture, almost oily? Finish is pretty long, especially in the back of the throat. Overall a pretty good beer, although definitely not my favorite. Without the sourness and with a little more sweetness, it would probably bump up the taste quite a bit (in my opinion).
