Beautiful black color. Awesome coffee, fine tobacco and fruity bubble gum aroma, with hints of spice and red pepper. The flavor is smoooooth coffee, probably expresso, with a complimentary amount of malty vanilla sweetness. I just loved it, and am giving the first 10 I have ever given for flavor. I must put up a couple of these for special occasions. highibus (823) - Vail, Arizona, USA - SEP 20, 2008
deep black beauty with great tan head and lots of lacing. aroma is nice roasted malt and huge coffee notes. flavor is much of the same. slightly everevecent. good body and great coffee finish. RaphaelN (195) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2008
Bottle at Volo. I am SO glad to see this beer finally available in Toronto! Kudos goes to Ralph’s son who informed me of the Peche Mortel after I was sadly informed that they were out of Oak Aged Yeti.
This is a treat! Coffee. And I mean a LOT of coffee - and this is good coffee my friends. Thick black heavenly liquid swimming in chocolate, roasted malt, caramel and loads of coffee. If you are a fan of the latter, you must try this! StFun (567) - Indiana, USA - SEP 20, 2008
Huge thanks to GMCC2181 for sending me a few of these. This is a big big impy stout. This thing is nothing but coffee. Aroma is coffee, flavor is coffee, this thing even looks like coffee! Add to that a big alcoholic bite, and you have this beer. Texture is nice and thick. Boozy in spots, which I didn’t care for, but I really liked the over the top coffee nature. I wouldn’t quite rank this up with the big boys, but as a coffee stout, it was quite good. Porbably just below Bells Java Stout. Thanks again Gabe, I like this one a lot! ekstedt (6976) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 18, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2009 Bottle (34 cl) from Ölbutikken, Copenhagen, Denmark. Black, medium beige head. Dark chocolate aroma with soft coffee notes and citric hops. Medium bodied and smooth. Dry and bitter.

Black with a small, brown head. Aroma of vanilla, toffe, light fruit and coffe. Taste of coffe, vanilla, slightly tart fruit and chocolate. Dry, roasted and complex aftertaste. A bit too light bodied but I guess that makes it appear as a bit more sophisticated and less rough. grimreeser (797) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 15, 2008
Pours a dark dark brown with a large dark tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, some roastiness. Nice flavor, some bitterness. TeamTrappist (832) - jericho, New York, USA - SEP 14, 2008
12 oz bottle. Poured as black as could be, thick, like motor oil thick. Nose was huge, coffee, vanilla, chocolate. Taste that followed was similar. This beer is the real deal stout, delicious and so drinkable. Top notch beer HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - SEP 12, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2009 Pours a deep black. Aroma of chocolate and strong coffee. Taste is dominated by coffee at first, then finishes a bit sour. Pretty awesome Imp Stout. drfabulous (8575) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - SEP 12, 2008
Very rich and dark. Lots of chocolate. Tart/sour taste follows like a good Duck Rabbit. Lots of coffee indeed. Not intense roasty coffee flavor....but almost like coffee grounds. Very nice. Lives up to the reputation.
