Cask @ The Rake, London. During RBESG 11. 2008 Vintage. Pours black with a creamy beige head and lacings. Oat, ashes, roast, port, chocolate and dark fruit. Complex and tasty. Smooth and soft. Lovely.

harrisoni (13711) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2008
Cask at GBBF 08. Black, thin tan head. Lots of bitter choc, some nutmeg. Still some American hops on end. It’s quite strong on the alcohol, bit of vanilla, bit too unsubtle. Hot alcohol and some whiskyish nature to it.

yngwie (13558) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 29, 2008
Bottle, 22oz. A next to black beer looking clear, with a small tan head on top. Hoppy dustyness, chocolate, cocoa and bitter chocolate in the aroma. The flavor followes the same pattern, with chocolate bitterness and some alcohol added. Full-bodied and warm on the palate. The finish is lasting, with chocolate the most evident flavor, but there’s also a little coffee touch. Yet another nice Stone. Would be interesting with more evident hops. Maybe. (080811)

Oakes (12552) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 23, 2009
Very dark brown. Roasty and burnt dark fruits on the nose - even more so than in the Zywiec I just had. There is a nice nuttiness to this nose as well, from the oatmeal. Very oaty body. Rich chocolate taste with a hint of roast, slight burnt fruit. This really cuts between your typical low-grav oatmeal stout and a top-fermented Baltic porter.

bu11zeye (11942) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - NOV 18, 2008
(22oz bottle) Pours a black body with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, and coffee. Flavor of chocolate, burnt grain, roasted malt, and coffee with a dry, bitter finish.

Like eating a very bitter Hershey bar. Over the top. Not subtle. Full bodied, creamy. Use earplugs.

argo0 (11533) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 11, 2008
(22oz bottle) Smallish brown head atop brown-black body. Aroma is medium sweet, dark chocolate, some milk chocolate, roast, light coffee liqueur. Taste is moderately sweet, milk chocolate, burnt coffee, alcohol, some dark chocolate, roast. Smooth medium-full body. Alcohol presence detracts from what otherwise would be a very enjoyable beer.

Bottle. [thank you, boutip!]
Pours completely black with a fair, medium, chocolate-coloured head. Okay duration. Vinious aroma with roasted malts, lots of dark chocolate and a note of fresh ground coffee. Medium carbonation, fine mouthfeel, though not as fat as I’d expected. Rather sweet at first, lots of maltiness and a sugary touch. Then along comes lots of fabolous, dry cocoa and grainy dark chocolate notes. Some clear alcohol as well, but a fine, lingering aftertaste like when I eat 70% + chocolate. Very good, but there are definately better imperial stouts.
