TimE (5230) - Tokyo, - JAN 16, 2010
Huge grapefruity, treacle, dark chocolate, dark fruit nose. Unbelievable nose for an imperial stout. Well balanced mouth which shows lots of cascade hops and strawberries on top of the roasted malt, dark chocolate character. Very smooth and dangerously easy to drink. Fairly aggressive bitter finish. Amazingly well made beer.

glennmastrange (2715) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - DEC 4, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2016 Bottle. Moderate to heavy toasted, dark chocolate and molasses for the malt, moderate resin for the hops, light dough for the yeast, with notes of wood, whiskey, vanilla and prune in the background. Head is tiny and bubbly, with no lacing, but good legs, and is fully diminishing. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and acidic, and moderately to heavily bitter. Palate is full, oily, with a soft carbonation and a lightly astringent finish. Very bold and rich Imperial Stout with a bit of a bite on the tongue.

330mL bottle from International Beer Collector. BB 15/04/41!!! REALLY!? Inky black body, small tan ring of foam hangs about. Rich aroma - dark chocolate, burnt toffee, cold drip coffee, charcoal, black berries & currents. Body is immense - thick, syrupy, low carbonation, slick, oily, velvet-like, booze is well integrated. Shifts up a gear on the palate - very sweet upfront, bags of dark chocolate, licorice, burnt toast, charred meat, plums & blackcurrant & blueberry, coffee grinds, some spicy hop character toward the finish with plenty of bitterness, long, lingering warming. A formidable brew indeed!

CyborgX (69) - THAILAND - NOV 30, 2016
Bottle - Aroma is strong sweet chocolate candy. Taste is strong but the sweetness from the aroma is nowhere to be found in the taste. Dark malts and slight bitterness rule the palette. The aroma promised a lot which sadly the taste coupd not backup. Having had a few pints of draught too, I know this to be a good RIS. Tap better than bottle ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Turboninja (569) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 20, 2016
[email protected], Tampere, Finland. Strong, balanced and high quality product with nuances of roasted malts, dark berries and chocolate, some licorice and a hint of wood. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall, great product with nice balance between malty and sweet aromas. A bit light mouthfeel and slightly simple.

Jaceks21 (99) - Zgorzelec, POLAND - NOV 13, 2016
W aromacie głwnie czekolada i praliny. Lekka paloność i pumpernikiel. Po ogrzaniu wychodzi wanilia. Ciężki i wytrawny aromat. Czarne, nieprzejrzyste, piana gruba, po chwili opada, ale trzyma się do ostatniego łyku. Ze szkła podchodzi pod likier z suszonymi owocami. Przy pierwszym łyku intensywna czekolada i nastychmiastowa kontra suszonej wiśni. Likierowo, wiśniowo, oblepiająco. Odrobina kakao i wanilli. Alkholu nie czuć w ogle, świetnie przykryty. Bardzo dobrze ułożone, doskonały balans między słodyczą a goryczką, ktra nie zalega i dobrze wspłgra z całością. Nasycenie niskie, takie jak powinno być. Na podniebieniu głwnie wiśnia w czekoladzie. Wzorowo.
