12 oz bottle. Pours as dark as midnight on a moonless night in the country with a one finger khaki head and pretty good lace. Smell is rich with unsweetened chocolate, molasses, dark fruits and toasted grains. Flavor starts out bitter, but turns towards the sweet side as you get into it. Just enough booze so’s your reminded your drinking a big beer. Heavy, even oily palate. Very good. jflopsu (1627) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 8, 2014
Pours a dark black with brown head. Has a nice chocolate, coffee, and dark alcohol aroma. Taste is strong with chocolate, coffee, and malts, with a lingering dark alcohol aftertaste. Not overpowering like many Russian imperials. More mild.

Bottle from Meditrina. Black with tan head and lace. Chocolate licorice cocoa woody aroma with hints of booze. Roasted dark chocolate molasses sweetness with hints of raisin or plum. Woody spicy bitterness. Fairly dry and well-attenuated for style. Low carbo. Very good/excellent. bluejacket74 (1993) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - DEC 21, 2014
22 ounce bottle, 2014 edition. Served in a DFH snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with maybe an inch tan head that stuck around a while. There’s also a good amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like dark fruit, molasses, roasted malt, bittersweet chocolate and some coffee. I think the taste is similar to the aroma, but with some milk chocolate, vanilla, and a bit of licorice noticeable. I think the strongest flavors are the molasses and dark fruity ones at first, with the chocolate kicking in more after a while. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit slick and creamy with moderate carbonation. I think it’s a good overall imperial stout. At $5.99 a bomber, it’s definitely worth picking up at least once!

Deep dark brown with brown head. Cocoa caramel roast aroma. Flavor is vanilla, cocoa, roast malt, caramel and dark chocolate in finish. johnnnniee (4346) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Pours a solid dark brown/black with a good sized creamy tan head that slowly dissipates to a cap on top. The aroma is filled with dark dried fruit and caramel with hints of molasses, chocolate, and coffee. Light earthy hop aroma tries to provide some balance but succumbs to the depths of the malt. The flavor is a bit of a departure from the aroma. Chocolate and coffee milk flavors with with a bit of caramel and molasses. Light earthy hop and a touch of ethanol in a fairly dry finish. Medium body with a light to moderate level of carbonation and a sweet silky mouthfeel. This is a decent stout that I can get behind. Its not overly complex, and a bit dry in the finish for my liking, but I enjoyed it just the same. Quick3Beers (1273) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 11, 2016
Pours a deep dark brown, nearly black, from a bottle, thin hot-chocolate colored head, almost no lacing. Flavor of baking chocolate, maybe a little raspberry. Hit of bitterness toward the end. Very good beer.
