Dark beer out of the keg with a lasting big foamy coffee colored head. Big alcohol and chocolate nose. Rich coffee and chocolate flavors with warming alcohol and a nice hop patina over the whole thing. Tasty big stout.

12 oz bottle. Picked up for the hell of it. Pours pitch black with a tan head. Very carbonated. Sounds like rice crispies when poured. Surprisingly fruity aroma, purple big league chew, and oxidation. Bit of ash tray in the flavor. Very light bodied. Interesting, imperfect, and unimpressed.

john-hansen (24) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 7, 2014
Bottle. Pours an opaque dark brown with a small frothy head that quickly fades. Aroma is a nice mix of coffee, chocolate, and burnt wood with some spiciness in there. Taste has some spice to it too with all the aromas mixed nicely. Theres some licorice as well and it has a slight whiskey feel to it with all the burnt wood. Good balance of sweet and bitter. Thin to medium body, silky mouthfeel. Very enjoyable imperial stout.

rumproasts (5324) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 2, 2014
bottle. Thick inky black with small tan head. A rare stout which evokes neither chocolate or coffee -- just loads of rich roasty malt. Moderate booze. This kicked my butt.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a nearly pitch black color. The head stands tall at three fingers high, khaki shaded. Texture-wise, it seems more soapy than creamy, but still, this has good retention for a 10% beer. Some spotty patches of lacing are left behind. S: This has a lot of licorice for my tastes. Seriously, a lot. Apart from that, this beer still brings the roast, still brings the chocolate, and even brings something resembling peat. Theres even some slight citrusy hops floating around. Even with all the aniseed, this has a very appealing aroma. T: I said the aroma brings the roast. Well, thats not the case here - because it REALLY brings the roast, like a charred sledgehammer. The roasted notes are mainly clustered near the finish; before that, it starts with a combination of fruitiness and licorice. It also finishes with slight wisps of chocolate and booze (just enough to add to the experience, mind). Im really enjoying how charred the roasted malts are in particular. M: It starts off really dry finishing in spite of the creamy body, and combined with its slightly thin body, gives it great drinkability. The finish becomes becomes a lot wetter as more is consumed - its almost like said feature is an omen for me to stop slamming this. Too bad, because I absolutely adore a slammable imperial stout (Black Albert, anyone?) Carbonation is medium. O: Make no mistake, this is really damn good. A bit pricey for me to purchase this frequently, though. Highly recommended for roast lovers.

Keg at Brewdog Edinburgh, solo and then as part of an expensive blackntan. Poured dark black, thick tan head. Aromas of coffee, chocolate, raisins. Rich velvet in the mouth, oily and lush. Memorable.
