Creamy and full-bodied, with a complex character from generous amounts of roasted, toasted, and caramel malts. For those who demand flavor, this is the perfect libation. Bronze Medal winner 2003 GABF, Gold Medal winner 2005 GABF.

Pours an opaque black with ruby tint and brownish red one finger head that leaves moderate lacing. Strong coffee, roasted malt, raisin, a hint of caramel. Touch of oak. Bitter citrus hops combines with the bitter coffee. Full bodies with moderate carbonation. Very long predominantly coffee finish. Not boozy given the high alcohol content. This is a quality imperial stout.

On tap. Very dark with light brown head. Aroma is roasty, a bit of coffee. Tasted pretty good, coffee, roasty, earthy. smooth, can taste the alcohol a bit. All in all, a pretty good imperial stout.

Mmm, an imperial w/out a lingering bitterness & exquisite mouthfeel! Beautiful black pour w/ a mocha head & a ring of lacing. The aroma is a little soft w/ some roasty notes. The flavor is complex w/ coffee, toffee, black liqourice, & a hint of chocolate. A delicious delight & so smooth on the palate - this is a very good beer!

A little boozy, six mos after release. Otherwise inky dark body and nice dark brown head, stout coats the glass! Great mouthfeel and nice lingering finish. This is a well developed Imperial -- everything I expect and desire. :)

High alcohol content but not over powering. Earthy taste but not too bitter. Real easy to drink.

Bottle shared with a fellow dad on a 4 year old’s play date. (Shoot me!) Pours a deep black with tan head. Aroma is coffee and licorice forward. Not overly sweet but definitely vanilla/barrel. Boost is right for a 12oz BA Imperial stout. Nice.

Habanero (3165) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2015
Bottled. Pours pitch black with a small, tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, dark fruits, coffee and liquorice notes. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and slightly bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A great Impy. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Tap. Pitch dark pour. Chocolate, almond butter, coffee, licorice, cream. Creamy and silky. Sweet and milky until the spiciness kicks in. Smooth and so good. Wow

Wow. I love this imperial stout because it doesn't go overboard on the coffee, roast or licorice flavors. All of those are there but it is well in the background. Up front is good old alcohol heat, oak and bourbon. My kind of stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tasted from bottle. Pours a black with thick beige head. Aroma is chocolate, caramel and a little vanilla. Taste is dark chocolate and coffee with hints of vanilla. Caramel and toffee as well. Very smooth and pretty full bodied. Moderate sweetness and mild bitterness. Not as drying on the palate as some imperial stouts. Overall a very tasty imperial stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
