Arome embourbée dans le carton ou je ne sais trop quoi. En bouche c’est beaucoup plus alléchant, caramel, vanille et mélasse. fletchfighters (1604) - AUSTRALIA - APR 8, 2013
500 ML bottle
Black with touches of ruby. Little to no head at all. Some white foam and bubbles and some lacing. Obvious ABV kegs.
Good nose. Licorice, coffee, chocolate and a lot of vanilla. Well hidden alcohol.
Creamy, slick, astringent, and a lot of vanilla. More of am imperial vanilla milk stout to me. Coffee in the right spots but a little too astringent at times.. Warmer it gets the vanilla gets a tad bit overwhelming and sweet.
Very US style stout that is quite good but touches too sweet and too much coffee to make it exceptional. lliams (204) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 8, 2013
pour was a little dull- big bubbles.. aroma is full and awesome, likewise the taste. vanilla, chocolate etc... all good but i was expecting a bit more viscosity.. Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. The aroma is full of vanilla and chocolate. The flavor is more complex. I get some nice bitter and milk chocolate, as well as some vanilla and roasted malt. Medium to thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very nice.

This Imperial Stout was a real joy to drink. Lots of chocolate and vanilla notes with a soft coffee-cream background. Wonderfully delicious. Beergeek23322 (2602) - Chester, Virginia, USA - MAR 27, 2013
October 2011. From bottle under the label Soft DK. pours black with a tan head. Chocolate, vanilla and roasted malts. Great mouthfeel. stoutnick (843) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAR 8, 2013
Dark black with off white head. Aroma is vanilla roast. Taste is syrupy vanilla with a bitter finish. As it warms it becomes like dough - nice and chewy. Palate is bitter. Overall, lovely, almost sessional imperial stout. Not as complex or brilliant as even more jesus, but still a great taster. hawthorne00 (4190) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 2, 2013
Bottle, 12C. Black with an inch of light tan head that fails to paint the bowl. Aroma of chocolate and vanilla, some light coffee. Velvety mouthfeel, almost nitro-like. Very sweet with chocolate, vanilla fudge (heh) astringent coffee mingling with alcohol and bitterness. If the vanilla has any wild overtones they’re lost in the sweetness. I don’t get it - what do you get for the 10% except oblivion? A curious mixture of the bland and the crass. Rangi (671) - NEW ZEALAND - MAR 1, 2013
This was good. Pitch black creamy head. Huge aroma of mocha and dark chocolate thelat continues through into the flavour. Taste is creamy and tasty. Syrupy almost to sweet toward the end but not quiet.
