Bottled. Pours silky black with a fine ring of beige head that dissipated over the course of drinking. Interesting aroma of roasted malts with a touch of pine sap/ resin, citrus and anise. Maybe the amarillo showing through? Flavor is straightforward dark cacao, espresso and a bitter, dry finish. One of the hoppier ISs ive tried. Overall very tasty but lacking balance, perhaps a touch of conflict of the peppery hops they were going for with the saucy roasted malt base.

rodenbach99 (4415) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 14, 2017
Style et rsum: Imperial stout trop poussireux.
Comment: Bomber de 650ml achet Boston.
Portrait: Une vraie bire noire, trs fonce. Un superbe nez intense de chocolat, de rglisse, de mlasse avec une touche diode. Une bouche malheureusement trop cendre avec de la poussire. La texture est bien ronde. Les saveurs de rglisses sentremlent avec le chocolat et les raisins secs. Trs bonne.
Note: 7+/10

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

freekyp (2044) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - JAN 23, 2017
This killer stout from Coronado does the Imperial thing right. Its 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.

Bawelt (722) - Lyon, FRANCE - DEC 30, 2016
Excellente, trs gourmande. Nez trs port sur le caf et un fond chocolat. On sent surtout une belle dose de fruits noirs (prune et mre) avec des jolies touches porto. La bouche est mine de rien assez thylique pour du 9%. On retrouve une jolie rondeur, lamertume est archi modre et on reste sur un joli caf/chocolat.

Aromas y sabores maltosos tostados algo ahumadas vonvtoques despreciados vainilla cacao y ligero caf torrefacto. Cuerpo ligero a medio algo denso y espumoso fino. Bastante buena. Para repetir sin duda.

Bomber. Rich roasted malt aroma with notes of dark chocolate, coffee and some nutty. Pours dark brown with a thin mocha brown head that has poor retention and lacing. Starts with rich roasted malt and some bitter dark chocolate flavors as well as a rich, full body. Finishes smooth and a bit dry with good coffee and nutty flavors that joins well with the roast. Quite nice.
