4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Black pour with a creamy tan head. Strong aroma of chocolate and bourbon and vanilla. Lots of chocolate, bourbon, and vanilla flavor. Finishes with smoke and dark fruit.
2016 bottle. Mahogany colored beer with a short lived beige head. Big alcohol nose. Lots of thin boutbon flavors, milk chocolate and alcohol. Seems dominated by the bourbon barrel. Stoned99 (1649) - St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 6, 2017
750ml bottle, Q4 2015. Molasses, candied fruits, licorice, raisin, alcohol. App: dark brown, big moka head with no retention. Taste and palate: medium body, liquoreux a bit tasteless for some reason, maybe a bit of chocolate, light acidity finish. Overall: hum. Not too sure. Seems to lack depth which is surprising for a 11.6 abv imperial stout. Seriously boring. Can't believe I paid that much for that bottle. PotjeBier (3628) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 29, 2017
Sampled from bottle at Foeder's bottleshare 28 September 2017. Black color. Beige head, quickly receding. Aroma's are sweetish, red fruit, light vanilla. Retronasal it's whiskey, fruit, alcohol. Flavor is moderate sweet, very fruity, champagne-like. Strong alcohol feel. Under medium bodied. Long finish, light dry, roasty, light bitter. Not too impressed to be honest. nickel (1221) - UKRAINE - SEP 19, 2017
Explosive bourbon aroma enriched by chocolate nose.
Taste: mix of dark chocolate, dried fruits, coffee. Warming aftertaste with strong woody bourbons trail

Aroma has hard roasted malts, chocolate, wood and bourbon. Taste is big chocolates and also carries some raisins. Licorice and vague roasted nuts. Warming alcohol. Solid as a rock, but maybe not over the top these days. If you do like more classical Imp's, you should most definitely choose this one.

Intense dark chocolate, sweet, dark fruits, candied, dark berries, spices, liquorice, dark toasted malts. Hazy, very dark brown, small, creamy, beige head. Light sweet. More dark chocolate, cacao, more spices, sweet, dark roast coffee, nutmeg, very soft carbonation, full bodied. Outstanding Impy, rich and complex, a Christmas cake.

Deep rich chocolate, vanilla, marshmallows. Nice and mighty but a bit too sweet. Nice long roasty finish. monisuse (1) - - AUG 31, 2017 does not count
Very good. I think it's one of the best stouts I've ever tried. Sorry to say, it's probably the last one ever too.

W aromacie praliny, wanilia, czekolada, naprawde przyjemnie, pojawia sie ogrobina alkoholu. W smaku powtorka, jednak troche malo intensywna, brakuje cialka, wysycenie nawet nie jest zbyt wysokie moim zdaniem. Ogolnie przyjemne piwo, ale na pewno nie warte swojej ceny.

2012 bottle: Black pour, dark tan head. Aroma is chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, roast, some dried and darker fruits, oxidation. Full bodied, still smooth, chocolate and barrel flavors dominate with detectable oxidation. Still good after 5 years.
