Ibrew2or3 (7777) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 27, 2014
Awesome green glass wide mouth 37.5cl bottle (my favorite bottle type I think) pours with a deep dark body that supports a full thick mocha head of foam. The aroma offers up big and roasty notes like dark roasted malts and over baked chocolate brownie as well as a dash of peaty smoke. The taste begins with dark roasted malts and chunks of chocolate and then more chocolate and malt richness toward midway. This all flows into some mild notes of booze and chili pepper heat. Behind these rich smooth notes are faint yeasty spices as well as a sense of minerals. Solid smooth sipper. Wow!

ComradeK (1081) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 1, 2014
375ml bottle. Pours an opaque black, with a large tan head, which lasts well and leaves good lacing. Treacle, milk chocolate, roasty malt warmth and fruity chilli create the aroma. An initial hint of treacle sweetness is soon overcome by chilli heat, which fades to milk chocolate smoothness in the mid-palate. A slight fruity flavour mixes with resurgent chilli in the finish, and there is a lingering blend of alcohol warmth and chilli heat. The chilli has been added to just the right level to complement the beer and make its presence felt without being overpowering, and works very nicely with the sweetness of the base beer. Very enjoyable.

McWorta (1196) - LUXEMBOURG - NOV 2, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2015 Black (>80EBC) with a brown light creamy head. Some oily viscosity and good lacing. Aromas of vanilla, raisins, earthy-wood notes, sweet prunes aromas develop on the nose. The texture offers a very brief carbonation fading quickly into a heavy slickness with a full body. Earthy sweet juicy centre with influences of wood, raisin, liquorice and some spice flavours develop. Rather complex beer with a somewhat spiced up long lasting bit roast finish. Harmonic and excellently balanced.

Pours like motor oil black color, haze, with stable foamy light brown head. Visually low carbonation. Aroma: rich and intense aroma of dark malt, which takes on coffee, bittersweet dark chocolate, supported with hop aroma, which takes on dark and forest friuit, and with spicy aroma of chilli peppers. Flavor: rich and intense malt flavor, which takes on cocoa, cacao bean, espresso coffee, molasses, vanilla, supported with spicynes of chilli peppers, which actually takes more on smokyness, and with hop flavor in the background, which takes on dark forest fruits. Body is full, texture is very silky smooth, carbonation is low, alcohol warmth is very discrete and gentle. Taste is fistly very sweet, with sticky, slightly spicy, dry finish. Spiciness lingers long in aftertaste. Another very good imperial stout, made in Proef brewery.
