AdamChandler (4470) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - APR 30, 2015
Draught, Pitch black. No light showing through. 2 finger coffee colored head. Smells like brown sugar, oatmeal, molasses and cedar mulch. Lots of dry chocolate in this one. Exceptional yeast presence and insanely clean. Finish is high bitterness in the 80s. Fudge lingers on. after a few more sips, honestly this is just way too sweet for me.

ça schlingue la vanille et le chocolat et là, c’est déjà très agréable ! Un lac noir d’huile où flotte quelques filaments de mousse blanche. En bouche, pas trop sirupeux pour autant et, surprenamment délicate, voir discrète ... ! Gagne en fruité en se réchauffant dans le verre ...Partagée avec un ami, A tester à nouveau pour se faire une idée "définitive" ....

GlasgowTAD (1309) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - APR 16, 2015
Pours black with a medium, frothy brown head which soon recedes to a foamy layer. Aroma consists of hazelnuts, vanilla, coffee, dark chocolate and sweet burnt sugar. Taste is vanilla, hazelnuts, soft dried fruits, cocoa, milk chocolate and a slight bitterness on the finish. A touch of alcohol heat is felt but not overwhelming. Full bodied with a thick mouthfeel.

peteinSD (1460) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 11, 2015
Bottle to glass. Ultra dark brown or maybe just straight black color in the glass with a thin scatter of brown foam. Excellent roast in the aroma with light nuts, coffee, chocolate bitterness, and minimal darker fruit in the finish. Taste is roasted coffee and bitter chocolate with some hop bitterness and sweeter malt notes into the finish. Smooth, oily mouthfeel. Maybe it’s been too long since I’ve had a really good imperial stout but this one really blew me away. Excellent.

Cunningham (6769) - Halden, NORWAY - APR 1, 2015
Black color with a fine beige head. Ok lacing. A coffee dominated beer. Both in aroma and flavor. Also a bit roasted and some licorice. Mild fruity. Decent but a bit one dimensional. Very well hidden alcohol. Smooth creamy texture and a semi dry ending.
[Bottle from Systembolaget web order in Sweden]

beer_est_deus (1113) - örebro, SWEDEN - MAR 28, 2015
Svart och med väldigt brunt skum. Doft: Kakao, Cola, kola, kaffe, jord, alkohol. Smak: Kakao, choklad pralin, mörk kola, vanilj, trä, rostat, alkohol, söt billig lakrits, lite inlaggda körsbär med kärna, jord. Behöver nog mer tid på sig.

zaf (308) - ITALY - MAR 26, 2015
scurissima con schiuma marrone/beige a grana media/grossolana che non dura molto..aroma squisito: frutta sotto spirito,alcool,caffè,esattamente quello che mi aspetto da una imperial stout,forse un pò troppo dominato dall’alcool..gusto complesso,ma forse non bilanciatissimo..sicuramente nella parte iniziale fa da padrone il dolce,sia in bocca che in gola..si attraversa una fase alcolica e si finisce con un amaro da tostatura molto intenso e duraturo..il corpo è elevato e la birra ha una consistenza molto oleosa..una splendida imperial stout,ma forse un pò sbilanciata..bottiglia bevuta dopo 1 anno e mezzo di invecchiamento
