joeneugs (6372) - Livermore, California, USA - MAY 29, 2012
On tap at Livermore Saloon. It pours a very dark brown/black with a nice tan head. The aroma jumps out with big time licorice, toast and a touch of chocolate. The flavor is nicely balanced with toast, licorice, anise, earthy bitterness and a dirty, roasted ashy finish. The body is full, but the beer remains utterly drinkable. Really ,really well done.

A 12 fl. oz. bottle with a Julian bottled on date of 23215, meaning it was bottled on 20th August 2015, so aged for about 2.5 years. Poured into a snifter glass. It was black in colour with a half finger brown head that dissipated fairly quickly while leaving some sparse spotty lacing. Aromas of roasted malts, molasses, chocolate, cocoa, raisins and dark fruit with hints of char and leather. Tastes of a peppery spice and woody beginning, followed by roasted malts, cocoa, chocolate and molasses. There is a touch of dark fruit and hints of smoke on the finish. Medium to full bodied with moderate to low carbonation. Overall my first impression wasn’t so good, but the more I drank it, the more I grew to like it. Perhaps partly it was because it got better as it warmed.

Samuel214 (1626) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 3, 2017
Flaska från Galatea/SB, gissningsvis från 2014 (3 år gammal drygt). Doft och smak av svart med mörkbrunt tjockt skum. Krämig kola, lakrits, muscovado socker, tjärpastill, granskott, melass, rostade toner, kaffe, kakao och choklad. Bra med beska. Riktigt gott!

Murrow (112) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - OCT 27, 2017
Bottle at home. Pours black with brown head. Rich, sweet, malty aroma. Flavors of slightly bitter coffee, chocolate, a little tart fruit. Rich mouthfeel. Warming finish with some hop bitterness and a little cloying sweetness left behind. Some good flavors here, decent complexity. A good imperial stout.

yoxik75 (474) - Wroclaw, POLAND - OCT 26, 2017
Piana drobna kremowa trwała, zdobi szkło. Kolor czarny. Aromat słodki, owoców suszonych, wiśni w czekoladzie, karmel, bardzo przyjemny ale średnio intensywny. Smak o kurcze ale to dobre, są wspomniana z aromatu owoce, gorzka czekolada, likierowa słodycz, kawa, palonośc, akcenty chmielowe leśne, żywiczne stonowane czasem leżakowania, goryczka wyraźna. Piwo słodkie z czekoladowo paloną kontrą i wysoką owocowością. Alkohol ukryty nasycenie niskie, wysoka pijalność, całość zagrała wyśmienity RIS. WOW
