GMCC2181 (1554) - Newark, Delaware, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Draft at Societe. I have to admit I didnt even want to try this beer since all their IPAs were so delicious but a friend said this stout is awesome and I can now confirm this. Black as black. Big roasted malt nose with some big smoke... Taste is roasted malts, nuts, smoke in a big way, spicey. Damn this is good. The smoke and spiceyness in this is awesome. Alcohol is hidden well. Fully bodied but creamy smooth.. Great beer!

laiti (7558) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 24, 2015
Draught @ OBriens. Rated on 25.08.2015. Aroma is nice and sweet with lots of cocoa and some licorice. Also tobacco. Flavour has salty licorice, some ash, hints of tobacco and mild coffee tones. Finishes with slightly disturbing alcohol kick. Aroma was nice but flavour is a bit too salty.

tiong (5000) - Espoo, FINLAND - AUG 24, 2015
Draught @ O’Briens, San Diego, CA

Pours pitch black with a brown head. Aroma of roasty malts, licorice, coffee, dark chocolate, molasses and syrup. Taste is smooth, slightly sweetish and roasty with loads of licorice, coffee, dark chocolate, molasses and syrup. Finish is sweetish, heavy and roasty. A bit sweetish but otherwise quite balanced and tasty.

PartyFowle (668) - - MAY 20, 2015
Draft. Rich and thick as hell. Midnight black with a dense graham cracker head. Aromas of espresso with milk, cocoa powder, dark chocolate, dashes of vanilla and anise. Body is thick and soft as whipped cream. Gentle bubbles, big heat. Sharper notes of anise and molasses up front of flavor, along with hints of sourdough. The swallow hands over some sweetness to balance, in the form of smooth dark chocolate and roasted marshmallow. Big lingering caraway and black licorice. Very well done.

joeneugs (4304) - Livermore, California, USA - MAY 17, 2015
On tap at the brewery. It pours a dark brown/black color with a tan head. The aroma is rich and bready with some cocoa and a little green apple. The flavor is chocolaty and thick with a little alcohol and sweet apple. Very full bodied and rich with a smoky finish. Pretty ok.

Pretty good imperial stout, black with a floater or two, no big deal. Coffee richness, good alcohol warmth. Finishes with French roast. I enjoyed it.

Reynolds314 (2880) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Average imperial stout. Dark brown near black pour with some transluscence. Aroma is cocoa, some ashy roast, and raisin. Tasty enough with light sweetness and some hoppy bitterness.

DSG (8575) - Tel Aviv, - MAR 16, 2015
[2/20/15] Draught at Societe in San Diego. Black with a nice brown head. Heavily roasty aroma with coffee, licorice and some cocoa. Bittersweet flavor, roasty, coffee-ish, with some dark chocolate, licorice and a bitter finish, more roasty, with some hops. Nice full body.
