RoyalFlushing (324) - Mamaroneck, New York, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Bottle poured a pitch black with a very small tan head and minimal lacing. Aroma includes subtle roasted malt and dark fruit notes. Taste is similarly big on vinous notes with a hint of dark chocolate and booze on the finish. Slight alcool warming on finish with dark fruit flavors lingering.

jercraigs (8006) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2014
2014-11-06. Black body with a quick tan head. 3+ Aroma is lightly alcoholic dark malt, light roast. 3+ Flavour is similar, modest alcohol, dark malt, cocoa, light roast. Lingering bitterness and alcohol. Medium bodied palate, soft to light carbonation. 3+ A bit simple, it shows promise but the alcohol is overly prominent. Bottle shared by Blankboy.

AmericanHobo (49) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 7, 2014
Nice aroma of roasted coffee and earthiness upon uncorking. Surprisingly well balanced for an Imperial Stout. Roasted coffee and hints of chocolate on palate. Smooth, crisp finish. Not at all hot comsidering the high ABV

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2014 Pours thick and black with a dark tan head. Aroma has notes of coffee and cocoa with raisins and an earthy smokeyness about it. Palate is very similar with a boozey aftertaste. A sipping beer for sure.

beersighted (116) - - OCT 8, 2014
A huge Belgian-style imperial stout. A funky nose leads to a Super duper sweet roast base. Almost too rich for my palate. Medium mouthfeel. Almost have up on this at the beginning, but in the end it rang true.

bleeng (1540) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Bottle. Coal black. Big roasty boozy nose. Huge flavor profile with big burnt malts booze sweetness. Sipper. Nice.

KnowThyBeer (26) - Wilmington, North Carolina, USA - SEP 7, 2014
A huge roasty beer. Pours black with a dark tan head. Light carbonation. Loads of brown sugar, baker’s chocolate and malt. Finishes smoother than an imperial stout should be. A little bit of fruit too to the finish. Astounding.

dalekliz (880) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle. Pours an inky black with a big tan head that fades quickly. Big malty aroma, lots of wood, dark chocolate, coffee, brown sugar. Rich taste, of bitter coffee and chocolate, toasted malt, wood, dark fruits. Hides the alcohol well. Lingering coffee and malt. Very nice.
