EddyBeer1 (908) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 5, 2013
Brune très foncée, pétillance moyenne, mousse brun clair crémeuse et bien tenace. Malts grillés et caramélisés, bonne présence de fruits des bois, notes de chocolat, amertume de réglisse. Un véritable délice!

Mora2000 (5789) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Deep brick red color with a tan head. The aroma is full of Belgian yeast, dark fruit and burnt rubber. The flavor is similar. The yeast and dark fruit notes come through up front with some roasted malt and charred malt also being present. There is still that rubber character in the flavor. Medium to thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

StoutHead (674) - DENMARK - JUL 7, 2013
Bottle. Doesn’t pour like a traditional stout - certainly not an imperial one - more like opaque red. Has a frothy off-white head. Aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Taste of roasted malts, dark fruits, chocolate, little bit yeast and licorice. Medium carbonation. Full mouthfeel, but more in a ale-kinda way than like a more traditional imperial stout way. Bitter finish of malt and chocolate. Quite good, but more like a dark ale than what I would call an imperial stout, but certainly one I’d drink again.

Though it has a high ABV, you cannot tell. Nice coloring. Very drinkable, but overall not too eventful for me. A beer I would readily drink, but not actively search out.

PriorL (1988) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUN 28, 2013
75cl bottle. APPEARANCE: black beer, not pitch black though. Huge stable beige head. NOSE: mostly burned malts, some chocolate. TASTE: burned malts, caramel, lacks some ’strength’ in the taste, rather sweet, somewhat hoppy/bitter even... Not really an imperial stout for me...

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - JUN 20, 2013
A - Dark garnet body with a massive 3 finger head that forms a middle mountain of curved mounds that last throughout the glass. Sticky 3D lacing is splattered allaround the glass. Good looking stout. S - Clean chocolate, toasted sweet bread, coffee comes through with notes of caramelized toffee, sweet cream, and loads of chocolate. T - Awesome dairy chocolate flavors, creamy, roasted malts, sweet with a spicy bitterness that wicks away most of the the sugary sweetness, roasted malts. Some bitter dark fruit, dried prunes and pears are the main fruit players while a chocolate covered banana flavor comes through at the end. Finishes with a grassy and roasted bitterness. M - Full body, moderate creamy carbonation, lush and full feel with a dry finish. Awesome stout here. Very creamy and decadent while keeping excellent balance. This reminds me of my wife’s Christmas hot cocoa. Very nice Impy stout. Decadent chocolate flavor with a robust and balancing roast. Pick this up if you see it. Serving type: bottle 10-13-2012
