Metalchopz (3095) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 1, 2013
Goes under the name "Imperial Alien Stout" and purchased at Area 51 Alien Center. Pours an almost black colour with a creamy beige head and lacing. Aromas of roasted malt, coffee, vanilla and even leather. Smooth mouthfeel, but a little thin for the style. Almost creamy. Taste of smooth roasted malts, light fruits, cacao and sugars. Goes down nicely as alcohol is well-hidden and this one is quite smooth all around.

Aurelius (5094) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 26, 2013
Vapourous, vinous, sweet roast aroma. Inky pour, purply tan head. Roasty, lightly sweet, nice coffee tones, especially in the finish. Medium body and not too heavy, finish doesn’t cling but is pleasantly roasty. On tap, Hay Merchant, Houston.

Beerenberger (1602) - Fischer, Texas, USA - SEP 21, 2013
Aroma of sweet roasted malt with subjections of chocolate and dark fruit. Pours a thick black, with a mostly lasting, tan head and moderate lacing. The taste follows the nose - sweet roasted malts. Dark roasted malts, dark fruit, with touches of molasses. Medium-full body with moderate carbonation. Overall, a well brewed Imperial Stout. Would drink again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From the bottle at Double Helix. Opaque with an attractive cream colored head. Dry roasted malt flavor is not complex at all but still satisfying. More of an Irish stout than Imperial. Still a nice beer.

rougeau13 (2631) - Richmond, Texas, USA - JUN 14, 2013
On tap at Mongoose vs Cobra in Houston and listed as Alien Stout. Close to black with a big beige head. Aroma of chocolate, roast, coffee and tar. On the sweeter side with a light roastiness in the flavor. Medium-full bodied. Good, but lacking some punch and fullness for an imperial stout.

Theydon_Bois (17265) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2013
Tap at the Hay Merchant, Houston, 21/05/13. Labelled as ’Alien Stout’ listed as 8.3%. Mid black with a thin tan head that clears edgeward. Nose is chocolate, roast malt, maltesers, liqourice, tar. Taste comprises light roast malt, chocolate, toffee fudge, lactose. Fuller end of medium bodied, fine carbonation, light roast finish. Lacks depth and doesn’t have the ABV for the job, drop the ’imperial’ from the style on this one me thinks! Drinkable but not one to bother revisiting.

Very nice stout; hits all the right notes. Deep beer pour with the requisite off white head. More chocolately than coffee in flavor. A smooth sipper, not roasty or overally complex, although I'm picking up some roastiness in the linger. Very easy drinking. I'm unsure of this stout's ambitions, but I quite like it. Not much to ponder; just stouty goodness! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

smaynard6000 (1007) - Apopka, Florida, USA - APR 14, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours black with small creamy beige head. Aroma is dominated by roasted coffee and chocolate notes. Smooth and sweet roasty flavor with a chocolaty finish. This is good, but I’m not sure if it’s an imperial stout.
