BelgianBeerGal (3334) - Panama City, Florida, USA - SEP 8, 2010
75cl bottle shared by Exiled. Overall a nice, solid impy stout. Not overly boozey and not overpowered with hops, chocolate or coffee. Pretty well balanced and tasty, especially considering the almost 12 ABV.

Bilwaukee (11) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 7, 2010
Pours Black with a tan to brown head(fades fast). Starts off alcoholic and almost bitter but comes through with a good coffee and a long chocolate finish. still new to this so ill say the aroma is alcoholic with coffee hints. Hits the tongue in the middle and slowly moves back. Overall good, probably gonna try this one again.

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 5, 2010
750ml bottle. Pours pitch black with a half finger tan head. The nose is marshmallow, dark fruits, molasses, roasted malt and alcohol. The taste is ashy cocoa, coffee and spiked fruit with some bitterness in the finish. Medium prickly mouth. Decent.

tokyogoat (1503) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 3, 2010
Nose is peppery, way overcarbonated, harsh metallic taste, hints of chocolate and nasty.

Oh, it’s an imperial stout ranked 97th percentile. Gee, what a shock. Can there be any credibility in this site with ratings like that? It’s a good imperial stout... tastes just like many, many others that I’ve had.

Goodgrief (1846) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - AUG 22, 2010
Dark as night pour, fluffy two finger head that quickly dissipated to naught. Aroma was that of the remnant of a campfire. The flavor was accordingly exytremely ashy with lots of sweetness. I’d call this an Imperial Ash ale...but in an enjoyable way.

sebletitje (7492) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 12, 2010
corked bottle. pours deep black, thick mocha head. aroma, bready as hell, malty an grainy, lots of roast and dark fruits; mostly figs, hints of Belgian yeast. aroma is boozy, wow, talk about warming abv. nice dark fruits presence, strong roast and malts, lingering hops bitetrness. Palate has mild notes of licorice quickly followed by a thick chocolate presence. Very robust, bitetr finish, a tad too fruity.

rags2rags (149) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 9, 2010
Bottle from Whole Foods, poured into snifter. Pours black with a persistent head that’s darker in color than expected. Strong aroma of burnt malts, chocolate, and dried fruit. Flavor is similar, though a combination of chocolate, coffee, and caramel dominate. Nice warming feeling from the alcohol would have been appreciated more if it weren’t hot outside. Buy one now while it’s available, then age until winter.

TheEpeeist (3499) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 1, 2010
25.4 oz bottle. Dark brown with a big foamy tan head. Nose is dark chocolate, prune and licorice. Thick and chalky with an alcohol burn and a buzz. Taste starts with chocolate and caramel; lightly vinous. Pleasant enough. Bitterness builds with dark roast, raw greens and iodine. Bold strokes without much finesse.
