I don't know if this was an older bottle (was sitting in the singles section outside of the fridge), but the aroma was on the "soy sauce" side. Because of the strength of this beer, it had that dominant alcohol smell. Thick, black appearance with zero head. Such a dense beer with very little carbonation. Standard with most imperial stouts over 10%. This was actually 10.5% instead of 11.5% shown here. Had a good chocolate, coffee flavor....but I still think I prefer Stoudts Fat Dog over this. May give it another try in the future, but have so many out there to sample first. Still, a very good/quality IPS, just not one of my favorites. UPDATED ON 6/27- This bottle seemed fresher, with a deeper flavor. Rating it about the same though. Aroma not quite an 8, but not low 7 like before (which had some more "soy sauce" the smell cause not as fresh perhaps). Seemed like had some more carbonation and a small mocha head, which I did not notice as much last time. murzyn (938) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - APR 9, 2018

[best before 11.06.15] Tough aroma of molasses with notes of chocolate pralines, brownie cake, gingerbread. Oh, the chocolate factory in the aroma. Pitch black in the glass, almost none head. Taste is semi sweet with creamy facture, ashy notes, a lot of chocolate stuff in the kind of molasses, roasty notes. Really creamy, with tough roasty finish. Really classic, really nice.
