COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Barley, wheat, rye and oats provide the foundation for this big stout. Layers of complex flavors slowly emerge from the glass: espresso, roasted fig, creme brulee. Belgian yeast provides a plum-like fruitiness, noble German hops reveal spicy, herbal notes, while the rich, velvety mouthfeel mellows to a dry, smoky finish. Such a robust beer stands well by itself, but also makes a wonderful end-note to any rich, indulgent meal. Discover the secret of combining this roasty ale to sweets, by pairing with dark chocolate or caramel, or even by pouring it over ice cream.

This is a beast. Pours a lovely black with brown head sticking to the glass. It smells of faint hops with serious malts. The taste is equally delicious, with a slight taste of belgian yeast. Mostly some amazing stout qualities. One of the best.

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2018 liquid bronie color, nice tan head, mild choclate coffee aroma, slighly bitter, backround spice notes, a little sweeter than most stouts, but overall nice complex flavor.

A splendid beer. Why can't they all be like this? (What I mean is, why can't a PBR or Milwaukee's Best taste this good, this strong, and this cheap?).

somehow, I have never had this; 12 oz bottle to glass. nice aroma - brownie, coffee, roast. dark pour. nice taste - it wasn't overly roasted or bitter - the dark fruits or Belgian qualities smoothed this out some - will have again; enjoyed.

Pours thick black with slight head. Aroma is brown sugar, chocolate and a hint of roast. Taste is dried fruit, molasses and chocolate. Finish is typical Belgian yeast strain. An interesting stout, put together in a manner that keeps you off your toes.

The truth is, it's 3:30 am, I'm trying to work, but I'm not that motivated. I just need to get over this hump and I think a nice cold beer will do it. The beer is dark with a 1.5 cm frothy and undulating head, which has some staying power. This head is protecting the beer from spreading it's aroma, so it's tough to get a full aromatic profile. I give it some time and take to sniffing the empty bottle. From it, I get lots of soy and light caramel. The beer itself gives off chocolate, coffee, and some light grains. Taste is smoky malts, dark chocolate, some sourness, brown sugar, coffee and through the head...strong bitterness. Perhaps the sourness was a bit off putting, but overall and solid imperial stout.

raphael (1311) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 10, 2018
Dark khaki head on dark dark bottom, i smell molasses, red wine, alcohol and milk chocolate—quite a nosefull. Resiny hop flavor with underlying molasses, alcohol and almost lemon. Lighter on the palate than most stouts, but is that a bad thing. My tongue feels stung. Very active finish.

erikaraeb (326) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 2, 2018
Carob, a bit of dark chocolate, dried fruit, and flowers make for a cool combo of flavors. Medium, smooth, juice-like bod.

3.9
Pershing (604) - Garland, Texas, USA - DEC 31, 2017
Black pour into a stemmed chalice with a tan long lasting head. Roasted barley aroma with some burnt notes. Medium body with some hop bitterness to offset the heavy malts used. Dry filling finish..
