12 fl. oz. bottle. Pours an opaque, black with a short lived, dark brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate and coffee. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, dark chocolate and a hint of vanilla with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Quite nice. gripweed57 (2314) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JAN 3, 2015
12 ounce bottle. Barely translucent brown color. Small foamy tan head. Roasted malt nose has a touch of cocoa. Flavor is rich and chewy, like a fudge brownie. Notes of cocoa, cinnamon and vanilla bean. Slightly resiny hops in finish. Complex and spicy, though no notes of chili peppers to speak of. Iznogud (3710) - CROATIA - JAN 3, 2015
On tap at Brewdog Sheffield. Pours dark brown with tan head. Roasted malts, chocolate, bit of coffee, spices. Dry and bitter finish. Lagerboy (2191) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 1, 2015
Bomber. Hueless dark brown, mocha foam fades fast. Aroma is dark roast, dark chocolate, spiced. Initially quite bitter, dark roasty chocolate malt, some cinnamon, vanilla, something spicy, sweetens and smooths out as it warms. Average carbonation, full bodied, lightly hopped.

Dark chocolate & caramel tones on the nose. Toffee & nutty chocolate taste with the dark malts shining through to a subtle sweet finish & a slight chilli spice.

12 oz bottle poured into a snifter. Bottled 9/8/2014. Black with half a finger of light tan head that fades into a ring fairly quickly. Aromas of dark chocolate, roasty notes, vanilla extract. Tastes of dark chocolate, vanilla, roasty notes, a little dark fruit. Medium body with a dry finish. jflopsu (1594) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 24, 2014
Pours black with a very thin light brown head. Has a chocolate and dark fruity malt aroma. Taste is a mix of chocolate, coffee, dark fruits (prunes) and some spices. A lingering dark fruit malt aftertaste - not what I expected for this imperial stout. ganache (5856) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 19, 2014
Bottled on 09/18/2014. Nose is very sweet and sugary, strong chocolate and medium dark roast, some nice red fruity notes, hint of vanilla, touch earthy/vegetal chili. Dark brown pour with a very short, dense light brown head. Taste is strongly sweet but not overwhelming, light bitterness and touches of caramel and yeast, decent maltiness, lightly sticky lips. Slow warmth from masterfully-contained booze and light chilli (which does hit the chest quite a bit at first). Vanilla is medium-heavy and excellently rounds out the flavor without any of the typically dirty vanilla notes (I guess extract is still the way to go), no cinnamon but there is a nice ripe red berry and slight cherry accent in the bg. Full body, heavy and lightly crisp, velvety-smooth; a true dessert beer and a good one at that! Ctplt777 (530) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - DEC 18, 2014
Oh theres chocolate in this one, don’t worry. Tons of coffee, chocolate and a nice roastiness. Smells insane. Taste is more of a dark chocolate with some coffee and a hint of vanilla. Really silky smooth. Overall an awesome stout, I would highly recommend. Cheers. TXBadger (2811) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 15, 2014
Pours a dark brown with khaki colored head. Spice, chocolate, and roasted malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with spice and sweetness.
