jb (3156) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 23, 2017
Vanilla and lots of licorice here in the nose and taste. A bit of bourbon lingers and adds to the taste as this stays in the mouth. Alcohol hidden very nicely. Dark with tan head. Lots of roasted and toasted notes. Straight-forward, did not pick up any interesting things like fruit.

Mleczna kawa. Czekolada. Dobrze ukryty alkohol. Przyjemne. Niczego jednak nie urywa.

wlajwl (6602) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 19, 2017
Aroma is chocolate/dark chocolate, dark malts, coffee and a hint of dry earthiness. The flavor is chocolate/dark chocolate, coffee, dark malts, mild dark fruit/fruit and a mix of big acidity and slight spiciness/alcohol in the finish.

basjansen14 (256) - NETHERLANDS - APR 16, 2017
Zwart kleurig bier met een bruine kleine schuimkraag. Aroma: geroosterde mout, koffie, mokka, karamel en wat alcohol. Smaak: geroosterde mout, drop, koffie, mokka en wat alcohol. Vol en romig mondgevoel met redelijk wat koolzuur, wat van mij wel wat minder had gemogen. Verder een erg goede imperial stout.

willisread (3168) - Owensboro, Kentucky, USA - APR 9, 2017
Tap at Mellow. Pours a murky, dark brown with a small head that dissipates quickly. Yeasty aromas. Cacao nib and faint coffee aromas. Boozy on the palate, roasty bitterness. Very gritty on the palate, like a French press almost. Something doesnt feel right, as this is usually a classic. Will try again if i see it.

northropfrye (3443) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 5, 2017
Dark black body, brown head, some lacing. Roast cocoa, malts, lactose, coffee aroma. Taste is rich sweet, dried fruit, anise, cocoa, dry and bitter. Nice imperial stout.

This stout is exactly the way I like it. Full bodied, smooth and loaded with roasted malts and hops. The balance in this beer is incredible. Every flavor has its place without surpressing others. I also like the subtlety of this beer. Excellent!
