Franckg (1393) - Trois-Rivires, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 18, 2015
Bouteille date 2014, bue en octobre.2015. Robe noire presque quopaque, de minces reflets acajou filtrent travers le liquide. Un col de mousse quasi inexistant except un petit cerne de mousse autour du verre. Armes de houblons bien agrum. Pamplemousse, mandarine, lime. Le tout sur un fond de malt rti et chocolat noir. En bouche, beaucoup de houblons. Des agrumes, une bonne amertume poignante. Un lger ct torrfi titille les papilles. Encore du chocolat noir, un peu danis. Plus une black ipa quune imperial stout. Une texture intressant mais un peu dcevante comme tenu du style. Un corps moyennement rond.

Bottle. Super dark dense pour with a beige head. Nose is roasty and sweet. Little bit of booze, dry roasty taste. Very good.

kathouse (1742) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - SEP 3, 2015
Thanks to cards04 for this. Very deep brown with just a thin wisp of tan foam. Chocolate and coffee aroma. Flavor is roasted grains, espresso, and blackened toast. Finish is bitter with charred wood and only a slight chocolate sweetness.

dnicolaescu (2279) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JUL 20, 2015
BOTTLE 50CL from bunget. Pitch black, espresso head. Strong coffee and chocolate in the nose, roasty, a touch of alcohol. Tastes roasty, coffee, acrid black malts, zesty spicy bitterness and some ashes. Correct and classic.

HippyHop (609) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 10, 2015
Pour is motor oil with a thin espresso cap that hangs around and leaves some nice lacing. Nose is chocolate/molasses/toast/coffee - nice and promising. Taste is....a bit of a let down. There seems to be a watery patch in the middle, despite the 9% ABV and full-ish body. Texture is slick/creamy, with nice lingering bitterness on the finish. Tasty, but lacking a certain punch for my liking.

ChrisSc (464) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 6, 2015
500ml bottle into tulip. Minneapolis. Pours dark dark brown with small rim of tan head. Aroma is a little unsettling. Grain alcohol is most present. Licorice, chocolate, and vanilla notes in the background. Really not great. Taste is mostly bitter. There is a sharp bite with a strong alcohol finish. Body is medium-full. Sharp carbonation. Long alcohol finish. This beer was a huge disappointment. I wont be finishing this.

Noire comme la nuit et surmonte dun moelleux collet blanc, cette stout impriale prsente une abondance de malts qui trouve quilibre dans une abondance de houblons tout aussi impressionnante. Le nez est de caf, de malts rtis, dun trs lger sucre qui annonce un liquide plutt sec mais qui finalement ne lest pas. Cest plus rond en bouche quau nez. Je reus, la premire gorge, une attaque chaude tisse dalcool, dpices et de houblons. Cette premire gorge fut intense et plus ou moins plaisante. Par la suite, les choses se sont calmes et je me suis mis rechercher (plutt qu fuir) cette attaque amre qui en fin de bouche, laissait place un sucre rsiduel rappelant le caramel et le beurre darachides. Trs belle bire que je serais trs heureux de pouvoir dguster une fois vieillie en ft de bourbon amricain!
