16 oz can from New Seasons Market in Hillsboro, OR. Looks thick and syrupy. Initial nose is roasty and sweet. Creamy and velvety smooth mouthfeel, with gentle carbonation. Roasted grains give lots of depth and flavor, with little astringency. Aroma has hints of chocolate, leather, and hazelnuts. Very strong and malty, but not too boozy. Great subtle bitter finish that perfectly balances out the sweetness and lasts long into the aftertaste. An all-time favorite! Leighton (22084) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2011
Cask at GBBF 2011, Day 3. Pours rich brown with a bubbly, beige head. Fantastic. Rich mocha character. Thick chocolate in the flavor. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Mild warming finish. Slight boozy oak, mocha, dry roasted malts. Super. Caskalefan (168) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Nice black body with off-white head, creamy, roasty, hoppy, coffee-ish, and a nice balance of chocolate with a nice dry (but not overly so) finish. Unpretentious and delicious. oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 11, 2011

Pitch black colour, small brown head. Aroma is liquorice, alcohol, wood and some chocolaty notes. Flavour is the same with some slight notes of vegetables and some mild roasted and toffeeish notes.
A stout that is what it is and doesn’t try to be anything other than delicious. 16 oz can. Light carbonation but very well balanced flavor.

A very smooth and strong imperial stout, the sweet and bold flavor mask any booziness from this tasty warming beer.

A very big stout. Quite smoky, and quite roasty. Not a sweet one. Some coffee notes. There's an earthiness here that I can't put my finger on. It tastes "black," for lack of a better word. Quite good! B

16oz can. Rich roasted malt aroma with nice notes of dark chocolate and some coffee. Pours black as night with a thin light brown head with poor retention but decent lacing. Starts with rich roasted malt with a good dark chocolate sweetness as well as a good, chewy mouthfeel and full body. Finishes smooth with a tiny bit of coffee sneaking into the flavor at the very end. Excellent stout! ALIBALI (2401) - Kiel, GERMANY - NOV 25, 2016
