brokensail (12899) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with a khaki head. Reeks of alcohol, roasted malt, and licorice. Mostly alcohol. Mild brine note, some dark chocolate, and coffee. The taste is a bit harsh and unpleasant. A lot of booze, ash, and char. Some coffee, mild chocolate, and a heavy roasted malt character.

karpik (207) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - JUL 5, 2015
Aroma of chocolate and spices. Pours dar brown with tall tan head, which reduces to small in a little while. Taste is too sweet for me, with little booze. There is chocolate, some spices, low bitterness. Overall it is not an imperial stout at all. It is like a mix of imperial porter with dubbel.

A strong dark beer, more rich in taste then most other dark Belgian beers a good alternative to double beers. Slightly too sweet or a bit too much alcohol for the overall brew. Good to drink more often.

bonkiedeaap (418) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 28, 2015
Bottle from Dranken Verheyen in Poppel. The beer is very dark brown and has a nice and stable cream colored head. The aroma is sweet with tones of caramal, nougat, raisins and a light bitterness with chocolate and a little alcohol. The taste is light to medium bodied, a little watery and with some tones of chocolate. Not a very good balance. The finish is dry and light bitter.

TtV (226) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 18, 2015
Bottle 33cl. Deep black with a medium off white head that is firm. Aroma of malts, chocolate, but there’s a flavour of the sea too. The taste is surprisingly sweet, not like stout at all. And again the aftertaste is sour. Nice!

olsvammel (4008) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUN 16, 2015
Bottle at Liquid Bar in Luxembourg. It doesn’t look like an Imperial Stout, more like a porter with its dark brown liquid. I wonder why they wrote dark stout on this. Smell of dried fruit and caramel, also quite milky. Similar taste some chocolate and roasted aromas. Doesn’t feel like an imperial stout at all. More like a strong bruin, dubbel or other strong dark belgian ale. I didn’t rate this as a stout though.

leghorn99 (102) - Livorno, ITALY - JUN 12, 2015
Di colore marrone scuro; la schiuma è abbondante, cremosa, di colore beige e persiste con un soffice cappello, alto un dito. Aroma di caffè, cioccolato nero fondente, una punta di rum, ciliegie, ribes nero. In bocca è molto elegante, in un mix di moka e malto; proseguendo nella beva, si percepiscono note di luppolo e di caffé, con sullo sfondo un bel tocco marino (filtraggio del mosto attraverso i gusci delle ostriche del mare del Nord). Il finale è lungo e complesso, con ulteriori sfumature di sapori; il gusto rimane decisamente dolce e il luppolo si sente solo alla fine, l’alcool presente ma non invadente.

jamaty (1160) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 8, 2015
Marrón oscura. Espuma abundante, pero no muy duradera. Aroma dulce. Sabor no muy propio de stout. Mas frutal de lo normal. Tono ahumado.nfinal amargo. Cuerpo moderado. Alcohol bien escondido. Digna, no memorable.

Nice looking pour from bottle into Chimay glass. Dark brown, tan head - smooth and creamy. Pretty hot - very sweet. Slight harshness but evens out as you drink it. Overall pretty nice beer.
