Nose is baking cocoa, earth. Flavor is same plus caramel, toffee, burnt sugar, ash/smoke, flashes of bitterness. Silty/chalky mouthfeel. GuenSmith (28) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 26, 2015
Poured from bottle with approx 1in of thick caramel head. Notes of coffee, chocolate, oats, and toast. Poured dark brown, chocolate to coffee color with good carbonation. This beer tasted like it smelled with chocolate and coffee notes leading to a toasty oaked finish, a very pleasing beer. DCLawyer (2846) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JUN 12, 2015

Pours very dark brown, with a tan head. Aroma of malt and coffee. Taste is similar: rich and dark taste of coffee in a good stout. Not as complex as some, but still a solid thumbs up. tkrex (3) - - APR 19, 2015 does not count
Compared to other imperial stouts, it's okay but not great. Good chocolate flavors, for once not overpowered by coffee. A bit thin feeling for an imp stout, but some might reckon that's a good thing.

Bottle shared at chriso’s post-GBBF shindig 2014 - London. Pours deep brown with a foamy, tan head. Dusty chocolate abounds in this one, coloured by notes of earthy bitterness, dark sugars. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Finishes with cheap-tasting chocolate. So so. northropfrye (3676) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 29, 2015
Dark body, creamy off-white head. Had some elements of an Irish dry stout, though sweeter and the body was certainly more lively than, say, a Guinness, though I was reminded of that beer in some ways. JonnyMadison (87) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 13, 2015
Bottle. Great aroma, malty and rich. The taste is complex, the malty bitterness balanced nicely with the creamy smoothness. Great imperial stout and not too thick or sluggish.
