BenDover (202) - Texas, USA - MAY 28, 2012
Pours a deep ruby-brown, with ridiculous amounts of dense tan foam that leaves behind some nice lacing. Aroma is of roasty malts, bittersweet chocolate, maybe cherries and figs. Flavor is sweet and malty, some coffee, a noticeable alcohol burn, and turning bitter and roasty at the end.

Borresteijn (4792) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2014
75cl Bottle from ABS Drinks Winksele, bought 2 years ago. Black colour, beige-brown head. Aroma of oxidization, smells old, liquorice, roasted malts, yeast. Flavour is sweet, liquorice, yeast, also tastes old, roasted malt and some coffee in the light-bitter finish. Medium-bodied. Already too old, obviously not a beer to keep.

Duft av kaffe og krydder. Fin mørk vinrød farge. Dekkende brunt kremet skum. Smak av frukter, kaffe og noe kryder.

thanatosti (932) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2014
33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Hogerdijk, Culemborg. Dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of coffee and roasted malts. Bitter taste but with a light sweetness to it. Very smooth mouthfeel, maybe even too smooth for an imperial stout but I think this has to do with the sweetness. Still a good beer though.

RW80 (645) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 12, 2014
33ml bottle Black with a firm tan head. Aroma:Licorice, coffee, roasted malts, Barley malts Taste: sweet Laurus nobilis Licorice. Perfecr Liquid versions. Start sweet and then has a very bitter afterttaste. Medium - to full body, slightly above average carbonation. ( High for an imperial stout.) A bit one dimensional, but it’s perfect liiquid laurus nobilis licorice.

hohops (302) - Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2014
Appearance- pitch black, big three finger beige foamy head which persists impressively. Aroma- lots of chocolate, liquorice and blackcurrant, cocoa, milky coffee, a little bit of toffee. Taste- large amount of coffee, plenty of bitterness, cocoa and dark chocolate in the background, hint of dark fruit and blackcurrant. Quite a long finish, and a medium mouthfeel. A good stout.

Vcoggins (53) - Cypress, Texas, USA - OCT 4, 2014
Pours very dark with a think tan head. Very carbonated for an imperial stout. Aromas of roasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee, and dark fruit. Taste of roasted malts, slight coffee, and chocolate. Something different in the taste i am guessing is Belgian yeast. Smooth creamy mouth feel. Rather dry finish. Definately gets better as it warms. Diferent from most RIS I have had but well worth the price.

75cl bottle shared with a friend. Very dark brown with a full off-white head. Full body with light carbonation. Coffee sweetness with some bitter tones. Roasted malts, coffee, caramel, wood, spices and herbs. A more then decent imperial stout.

kerenmk (2432) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - AUG 30, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Stas and Vova. Murky dark brown with creamy head. Oatmeal and raisins and porridge and dried fruit aroma, sweetish, a little alcoholic, then roasty and bitter in the mouth. Heavy, full body, fairly carbonated, long, roasty finish.
