Totalt svart, håller bredvid en lampa, inget ljus kommer igenom. Stort brunt brunt skum som faller och lägger sig lite på kanten av glaset. Doft: Kaffe, bränt socker, malt, gräs, inlaggda körsbär och en massa kakao. Smak: Kaffe, kakao, ek, körsbärsvin, hjortron. God, men, något saknas. Vill ha den fylligare bl.a. rondphoto (4508) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - OCT 15, 2012
Opaque black amber with a 1/2" head, and splashes of lace. Taste of sour roasted malt that is infused with a bitter chocolate near the finish. Big, full-bodied, but not as satisfying as I would expect. Vignale (4121) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 15, 2012
Bäst före 2015. Bryggdatum okänt. Gissningsvis 2011. Riktigt mörkt mörkt brun med högt beige skum. Snyggt. Inte så stor dofter till en början, men när den närmasr sig rumstemperatur växer chokladaromerna fram tillsammans med sötlakrits, kaffe, soja. Munkänslan len, rund, smaken ganska söt, lite bränt socker, sedan växer en liten besk bitterchokladton fram. Riktigt gott, bra balans, antydan till madeira och torkade plommon i eftersmaken. Mums. Kanske närmare foreign stout än IS om man ska vara petig. yiannnos (1254) - , CYPRUS - OCT 1, 2012
Sample @ SBWF12, Black colour. A medium bodied stout, nice, but prefer imperial stouts to be bolder VsXsV (4572) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 2, 2012
Draught. Opaque black liquid with small tan head. Aroma of cold coffee, caramel, biscuit, toffee, dark fruit and some booze. Nice. Taste is dry and medium bitter with notes of coffee, licorice and ash. A bit light but very drinkable. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Not very aggressive or "imperial" but still good tasting beer.

Bottled. Pours pitch black with a brown head. Smells smoky roasted malt. Tastes smoky chocolate malt, abit basil with a similar finish. high_on_hops (809) - Burlingame, California, USA - AUG 29, 2012
Pours a solid black with a short brown hair. It has a somewhat light aroma of toasted malt along with some coffee and toffee. It has some toasted malt and coffee up front in the flavor, but more malt and toffee in the middle and aftertaste.

Head is initially average sized, frothy, brown, mostly lasting.
Body is black.
Aroma is moderately to heavily malty (roasted grain, unsweetened chocolate), with notes of tar and minerals.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery/oily texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic.
Very one-dimensional in the nose...very roasty and tarry. Considerable sourness in the mouth. Not a fan. yankeefan21 (135) - New York, USA - AUG 20, 2012
Bottle: Pours a deep brown almost black color with a finger tall tan head that doesn’t linger for very long. The aroma is roasty chocolate malts and molasses with a touch of alcohol. The taste is not what I was expecting. It’s a little salty with smokey roasted malts really dominating and really no sweetness. It’s actually lighter in body than you would think with a slick texture and sort of flat in the carbonation category and has a dry finish.
Overall I liked this beer but didn’t love it. This is rated as an imperial stout but really feels more like a regular stout. It just didn’t have the malt backbone I was looking for. LilBeerDoctor (4231) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2012
Bottle. Pours black with a thin tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, raisin, dark fruits, vanilla. Flavor of sweet roasted malt upfront with lactose, vanilla, cacao nibs, sweet (almost tart) fruit, and chocolate in the finish. The flavor was better than the aroma but focused more on sweet fruits versus roasted malts. Solid palate. Nice imperial stout.
