This stuff is strong. A ton of everything it says. Coffee and chocolate and you know it. So rich and really good. A lot of alcohol comes through for me too.

CelticBrew (912) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - OCT 11, 2008
Pours from 12 oz bottle almost completely black, forming beautiful off black foamy head. Aroma of chocolate delights, hops, malts, espresso coffee beans. Flavour much of the same, simple bliss and goodness, smoothness prevails in rich and sublime cleanness. Bitterness and hops give the beer a supreme character, kick ass!

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 10, 2008
Aroma: Roasted malts and chocolate, and no matter how much I’ve inhaled, it doesn’t fade. Appearance: Thick pour, darkest brown, thin brown head, minimal spotty lace. Flavor: Big roast malt flavor at the front, building towards lots of sweet cream on the mid-palate. Dark fruits abound, and some not-so-dark fruits as well (apricot, bitter melon...) Dark, bitter chocolate was there all along, but comes to the fore in the finish. Palate: Starts prickly, drinks smooth, and finishes dusty.

Magjayran (1378) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 10, 2008
Pours an oily black with just a very thing tan film of a head. Of course the coffee comes on strong in the nose but beyond that I pick up some notes of molasses. This is definitely not one of those sweet imp. stouts. Bitter black coffee dominates with a bit of black patent malt like taste and a lingering chocolate finish. Solid and bitter to the end. Just not mind blowing.

msante79 (2225) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - OCT 9, 2008
12oz bottle. Pours pitch black with no head except for thin ring on edges of my snifter. Aroma is rich coffee, chocolate and roasted malt. Flavor is heavy with coffee. Also taste chocolate and roasted malt and touch of vanilla. Mouthfeel is smooth. Similar brew to Dieu du Ciel Pch Mortel and Speedway Stout. Not a huge fan of stouts with big coffee flavors but this is not overdone.

zappafan99 (463) - ASCENSION ISLAND - OCT 6, 2008
Taste 10/8 Looks: Opaque/black, thin clinging head. Aroma: Nice dark roast malt and coffee blend. Some chocolate in there as well. Taste: Thick and rich coffee with a little chocolate. Smooth, even and hides the alcohol well.

sebletitje (9556) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 6, 2008
Courtesy of gillard. One amazing brew. Hard to put down. Pours black, with a nice brownish/yellowish head. Aroma is filled with nice coffee notes. Taste, your fill of coffee, light grains and malty. Not much else to say, this is just one amazing Imp. Stout. Very drinkable, loaded with coffee and a good presence f alcohol.

piscator34 (2374) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 5, 2008
Bottled sample via and shared with oakbluff. Pitch black in colour with moderate carbonation. Aromas of coffee, chocolate, caramel, and a bit of booze. Flavor wise, it’s all coffee upfront before a mellow malt, caramel, chocolate, vanilla, oatmeal and herbal hop push from mid-sip to finish. Heavy bodied without being cloying or lifeless. Very nice.
