Bottle from a friend into a snifter. Pours a nice black with tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, hops, and licorice. imdownthepub (15421) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2017
Bottled, 355ml aged 4yrs many thanks to Doppelganger. Black with tan head. There is a milk chocolate character to this along with a fruity, plummy note, some tarry notes some caramel. Not as deeply flavoured as many Impy Stouts but there is a reasonable palate. Overall pretty decent. CopterScott (254) - Kansas, USA - MAR 27, 2016

A- Weak, bland, subtle cocoa.
A- Black color, dark liquid, tan head.
T- Roasty, cocoa, malty.
P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, roasty finish.
O- Aroma was a bit of a let down and the taste was really traditional forward but still lacking. Needs some work but could be great.
Backlog from the Brony Bottle Share at Travlr’s. Dark brown with small lite tan head. Oats and roasted malt. Thin, boring.

Aroma is a little weak. Standard Imperial Stout scent, but muted and with a strange red wine vinegar characteristic. The appearance is nice - flat black color with a tiny cap of tan foam that leaves a lot of lacing. Nice creamy flavor with a welcome sweetness that opens up before giving way to hops and roasty bitterness. Booze burn in the aftertaste; I have never taken away points from a beer for that. Great palate, thick yet smooth. This beer was good, not great. Beaver (1854) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 3, 2015
12 oz bottle. Pours dark black brown with a big creamy tan head that retains well and laces the glass. gregwilsonstl (2691) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 2, 2015
The aroma is roasted chocolate malt, black licorice and a little fruit.
The flavor is roasted chocolate malts, black licorice and some dark fruit and an ashy bitter finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, a nice imperial stout.
Dark black. Milky chocolate. Roasted. Heavy body. Bitter aftertaste. Good but not great. TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 30, 2015
12 oz bottle. Dark brown with a sparse tan head. Nose is dusty caramel, faint coffee and raisin. Coating medium body with a tang. Taste is coffee, grass, chocolate, licorice and caramel. A little bit of everything. Solid stout.
