I love the beers that have a dark brown foamy head ... Looks so cool. Aroma is roasty, nuts, woody and the alcohol is well hidden in the scent. Very smooth and the flavor hits you in the face with malt, chocolate and slightly bitter. One of the top imperial stouts I’ve had.

I’m starting to feel like I could almost copy and paste any other decent imperial stout review and post it for every imperial I sample. This one is no different. Now, granted I’m tasting this 5 months after bottling, so the dry hop character isn’t going to be hanging around. And it’s not. I didn’t detect any whatsoever. I’d love to have tasted this one fresh off the line. Bottle, dated 2/19/10. It’s black. Are you surprised? It’s got a thick, dark brown foam that has some staying power. The flavor is about what you expect. Sharp bite of alcohol, not entirely unpleasant but I wish it was lower in ABV. There is chocolate, roast, it has a deep and rich flavor. It’s hard to hate an imperial, unless it’s overly syrupy which this isn’t. Not to say it isn’t fairly sweet, which I’ve been rebelling against lately. Not bad, but at almost $12 it’s a one time purchase.

Aroma of chocolate, toffee,nuts roasted caramel. Pours black with a caramel colourede head. Flavour of chocolate, coffee, liqourice, nuts, toffee and dry hops that lingers in the aftertaste. Nice and full but a bit too carbonated.

Wow, what a great beer, and just smooth as hell too. I had the pleasure of trying this one on-tap at the Clybourn Pub.

Smag af chokolade, lakrids, grape, portvin, træ, harpiks. Sort med tæt brunt skum. Rigtig meget sød og meget bitter. Flad, sirupsagtig.

Pour nice with a dark tan head. Aroma is something out of this world. Dark and malty nose...chocolates and the orange and sweet citrus. Awesome. They really dry hopped this bad boy well. You can tell that GI knew what they wanted in the end result. The taste is acidic, with a lot of roasted malts. This brew attacks you taste buds, especially the sides and back. It has a beautiful mouthfeel. Sweet, acidic and really dry on the finish. Its like eating a 100% dark chocolate bar with some sugar sprinkled on top. Its really fantastic. Right up there with the best.

Pours jet black with minimal tan head out of 22 oz bomber in to 12 oz snifter. Nose of chololate, malt and coffee. Taste of well blended malt and hops. Impeccabley balanced, with a smooth, slightly boozy finish. Not sure why we can sit on these anymore, says to drink in 6 months, before it was to develop for 5 years. Excellent beer.

Black pour with thin quickly dissipating dark tan head. Cherries, bitter chocolate, roast barley on the nose. Cherry note that rolls into a bitter chocolate, back to cherry into roast back to chocolate cherry, back to sticky chocolate with almost an espresso note finish. Full body, sticky lips, excellent!
