This deep, dark, viscous brew stands up to other imperial stouts, delivering big flavors in a smooth, balanced and easy-drinking package. Robust and chocolaty with a hint of hop freshness, it’s the perfect beer to warm up with as winter cold sets in.

mjg74 (3199) - La Mesa, California, USA - NOV 13, 2012
Bomber from BevMo. Pours pitch black. Roasty coffee nose with a little bit of milky sweetness. Flavor is fairly roasted up front with some good coffee notes. A little subdued sweetness. Finish has a little bit of a hoppy bite to it. Alcohol is well hidden.

Głupi nie ale dziwny. Taki niedokończony - jakby film obejrzeć bez ostatnich, kluczowych scen. Zasadniczo poprawny, nawet przyzwoity imperialny stout, z dużym potencjałem na świetne piwo ale czegoś w nim brakuje. Gorzka czekolada i likier owocowy w smaku, alkohol ładnie schowany, bardziej wytrawny niż słodki. Stanowczo za duża butla na jedną osobę. Niby ok, ale ...

Really nice nose and appearance is almost black. Taste is sweet and almost melass with some hops at the finosh. Palate is long and very malty.

OminouSC2 (966) - Mora, SWEDEN - APR 10, 2017
Black color, small brown head. Aromas of chocolate, cacao, roasted malt, nuts, coconut and slight hop. Slight bitter taste of chocolate, nuts, coffee, roasted malt, earthy hints, cacao, hop and vanilla. Bitter finish. A bit thin body.

Habanero (4908) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - MAR 5, 2017
Bottled. Pours black with a small, lacing tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate and woodish notes. Sweet flavor that ends up being more dry and slightly bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A very nice Impy indeed. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Style et résumé: Imperial stout trop poussiéreux.
Comment: Bomber de 650ml acheté à Boston.
Portrait: Une vraie bière noire, très foncée. Un superbe nez intense de chocolat, de réglisse, de mélasse avec une touche d’iode. Une bouche malheureusement trop cendrée avec de la poussière. La texture est bien ronde. Les saveurs de réglisses s’entremêlent avec le chocolat et les raisins secs. Très bonne.
Note: 7+/10

Sorprendentemente suave para este estilo. En nariz, notas de regaliz, de ciruela negra pasa y licor de café. En boca, la regaliz va evolucionando hacia café, y el amargor aparece dando un perfecto equilibrio dulce-amargo. Genial y absolutamente recomendable.

This killer stout from Coronado does the Imperial thing right. It’s 9% is well hidden beneath layers of chocolaty goodness. Lots of girth. A very interesting anisette note is a persistent component in the flavor. Nice light creamed coffee, mocha and minty hop nose. Pours deep dark brown with a big creamy tan head that leaves plenty of foamy lace.
