Pitch black with a thin moka head. Intense fruity aromas with cocoa and chocolate and roasted toast undertones. Medium to full body, smooth, abit raisiny, lots of cocoa flavors finishing with a little bit of warmth from the alcohol. Almost well balanced, if for the alcohol burn in the end.

Deep dark brown coloured body with a muddy brown and copper glow and a very slight amount of light getting through when tilted. Aroma of pungent alcohol, yeast, roasted malt, aniseed and a bit of cream. Full-bodied; Dense roasted malt flavour with a good dose of cream, chocolate, anise, tobacco and a tiny amount of leather and earth noticeable. Aftertaste is quite strong as well with the malt showing off the most and a touch of the deep anise flavours. Overall, a nice imperial stout with a ton of deep strong flavours, a very thick body and a lot of alcohol - perhaps not complex enough and showing only the malt and cream predominantly. I sampled this 300 mL bottle purchased from Olivers Beverage in Albany, New York on 03-September-2010 aged for more than a year, sampled at home in Washington on 08-December-2011.

(33 cl) Une robe pratiquement noire. Une tte fonce trs peu rsistante. Un regard plutt classique. Un nez domin par des fruits (raisins et, dans une moindre mesure, prunes) avec un murmure dalcool et de bons et grands parfums rtis. Une fois bien tempr, la douce prsence dune rglisse sale. Des saveurs chaudes et fruites, amres par les grains rtis et touches par des pointes anises. Une bouche qui me semble moyenne avec un ptillement bas et une texture huileuse. Une finale brlante, longue et tonitruante.

Sweet tast. Little bit to much palate, oily. Nice beer, but not outstanding....

Miksu (5046) - Jyvskyl, FINLAND - NOV 29, 2011
0.33 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Black color. Sweet and very roasty aroma with raisins, charcoal, licorice, warming alcohol and some medicinal notes. Thick sweet and roasty flavor with plenty of licorice and charcoal. Bitter and roasty finish. Full body but not heavy. Fairly nice, but a bit too much licorice and medicinal notes for my taste.

UPDATED: APR 11, 2012 33 cl bottle at VilleValla Pub. Clear, dark brown/black liquid with a red hue and small tan head. Some lacing. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, pumpernickel, raw sugar, resiny hops and burnt/highly roasted malt. Taste is roasty, medium bitter and light sweet with notes of coffee, chocolate and little mollipect (cough medicine that I hate). Medium to full bodied with OK carbonation. Warming sensation, but becomes quite boozy as it warms up. I think something was a bit off about my bottle, considering how boozy and rough it was. 8/4/8/2/15

Re-rating 2012-04-11 at home. Thanks to Countbeer for this one! Bottle. Opaque, black liquid with a reddish hue and medium, thick off-white head. Aroma of chocolate, licorice, dark fruits (plums), toast, roasted malt, alcohol and some light coffee and ash. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter with notes of chocolate, licorice and cereal malt. Full bodied with low, but appropriate carbonation and thick, oily, velvety mouthfeel. Great palate actually. I liked this better now than last time I drank it. Upped the score from 3.9 to 4.1

PaulW (105) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2011
Lovely, but almost TOO much! Big vinious nose, hints of Kaloua on the palette. Very bitter, but balanced by eons of dark malt. One bottle easily enough....almost wish J liked dark beer to half the burden. A beast.
