On tap at CBB a big dark cocoa & clay aroma. It has solid citrus hops and roasty black malt goodness. Honestly when I tasted it I thought it was a Black IPA so for me it was good but a bit of a disappointment after all the hype I’d hear about this beer.

From Ales & Lagers in KL. Pitch black with fine tan head and huge sticky legs. Smells deeply richly bitter, leathery tobacco, roasted malt, slight spice, dark fruit. Taste is bitter, coffee, bit of umami. Thin-medium body with some slickness but a little too frothy. Big beer. Very good.

Bottle from Ales & Lagers in KL at home. Rich black pour with creamy head. Mixture of aromas - bit of fruity piney hops with coffee and roasted malt. Really good. Taste is very bitter to start - floral hoppy coffee bitterness. Not as thick as I thought - but that's good. Very bitter finish - espresso comes through - with lasting booziness. The bitter and slightly fruity hoppiness adds a lot - great Imperial Stout, would definitely get again.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a deep, dark brown with a huge chocolatey brown foam head. Good lacing. Aroma is immediately noticeable -- huge roasted chocolate and coffee malts with licorice. Taste leads with dark fruits, and a bit of booze. One of the hoppier Stouts I’ve had. Chocolate and coffee malts aren’t quite as strong as in the aroma. Not the strongest Stout you’ll find, but a pleasant taste and easy to drink. This is an easy drinking Stout. Strongly recommended.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2014 Grassy. Hoppy.. Like ipa hoppy... Nose has tobacco. Tobacco on the finish. But hops overpower. Not a good stout. Different... And I don’t like it.
This beer is like drinking fresh grass clippings, which is definitely not good for a stout. I actually thought I had been served the wrong beer because I took a sip and said: this is a black IPA. But nope... it’s a stout.

Bottle. "Enjoy by April 10, 2007". Pours an extremely dark brown with a big, frothy, tan cap. Aroma of cocoa, coffee, citrus, tropical fruit, caramelized apple. Taste is an extremely balanced bitter sweetness. Very creamy mouthfeel. Chewy.
