COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Intensivement savoureuse, duveteuse et plus noire que le centre galactique, l’Impérial Stout PLUS ne peut que surprendre. Ses riches saveurs de chocolat et de café ne se rencontrent qu’au point d’équilibre créé par l’illusion d’une destination vers l’infini. Le partage multiplie le plaisir.

Jet black, large dark brown head. Huge aromas. Intense charred malt, soy, burnt cocoa powder and strong espresso. The mouthfeel is oily and viscous, the carb is low but solid. The beer os so black its staining the sides of the glass brown. The finish is highly bitter, huge, intense charred roasty flavours. Subtle dark fruit, light piney hops. An intense, huge stout.

(750ml bottle) Pours a black body with a medium tan head. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, and roasted grain. Flavor of chocolate, molasses, dried fruit, and roasted grain.

Une bière d’un noir qui ne laisse aucun doute sur son opacité offre un nuage de mousse brune à grosses bulles. Les flaveurs de grains de café, de chocolat et de tabac typiques au style sont rehaussées par du chêne bien présent, le tout dans une carbonatation tranquille. Pas mal du tout cette petite bête.

Robe noire opaque surmonté d’un mince col de mousse brun foncé qui s’estompe rapidement. Arômes de chocolat noir, malt rôti, alcool, grains expresso, biscuit à la mélasse et poudre de cacao. C’est bien mais je me serais attendu à plus d’intensité venant d’un breuvage tirant à près de 12% d’alcool. En bouche, encore beaucoup de chocolat noir sucré, malt rôti, café expresso et beaucoup de notes grillées. Une touche d’anis se pointe brièvement. Longue finale amère laissant le malt rôti se mettre en valeur en même temps que la poudre de cacao. L’alcool est présent mais se mêle bien aux saveurs. Texture huileuse sans être onctueuse et corps moyennement rond. Boire tranquillement à température ambiante.

TheJester (2394) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 29, 2015
500 mL bottle. Pours dark, dark brown, with as dark a head as I’ve seen. Doesn’t last, though. All malty aroma, led by chocolate. Surprisingly unsophisticated flavour for the size, but it is still big and appealing. Lots of chocolate, roast, and booze, and a roasty-bitter finish. Somehow, though, not quite equal to the sum of its parts.

Metalchopz (2990) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 10, 2015
Pours a real dark colour, almost black, with hardly any highlights. Big frothy mocha head with average retention and some light foamy lace. Aromas of coffee, chocolate malt, molasses and hints of dark fruits. The taste starts off on a wrong note though, with some rustiness from the hops. Does get better with actual bitterness in the finish. Pretty bitter for an Impy Stout. Chocolate and coffee lingers. Pretty good overall, but the rusty notes are ruining this a little. Too bad.

mabel (8014) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 3, 2015
[7035-20150130] 750mL bottle. Motor oil and roasted malt aroma black body with a quick foamy brown head. Heavy oily roasted malt grain flavour. Full rich body. Delicious. (8/3/8/4/15) 3.8
Overheard: "Can you put that in an aroma therapy candle and just burn it all night?" "Only if you’re not hungry."

Bottle - Graham cracker and rich dark chocolate. Deep jet brown with a dark brown head. Dark chocolate, roast, molasses and some bitter sweet notes. Long nice finish. Pretty good.

Bottle from Pat, tasted side by side with the bourbon version. Apperance is black and viscous with an inch of dark mocha head, looks more carbonated then the bourbon. Aroma is milk chocolate, coffee, oats, and ainse. Taste is coffee roast, ainse, and bitter dark chocolate. Full bodied with nice carbonation. Pretty solid, quite a bit better than the bourbon.
