UPDATED: MAR 30, 2012 Bottle - from sampler pack. Very black and opaque. Decent, but not all that much flavor for an Imperial stout. Definitely doesn’t taste as strong as it is.
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2018 Pours thick black with thin head. Aroma is chocolate, dried fruit and sweetbread. Taste is plum, chocolate and caramel, warming to roast. Finish is smooth sweet coffee. A really good stout. jthrcw (21) - - DEC 27, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2017 Black pour tan head. Coffee and dark chocolate notes with a slightly smokey taste to it. Not a bad stout scarletfire65 (1546) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 29, 2017

Draft. This is a very dry and raisiny imperial stout, english-styled, touch of yeasty and herb. arn8897 (458) - Trenton, Ohio, USA - MAR 19, 2017
Pours a deep brown to black with a khaki head. Aromas of coffee and chocolate. Taste the same with a little sweetness from the malt and molasses. Finishes clean from the hops. Very little alcohol warmth. Aromas are more pronounced than the taste. But not bad. Thin mouth feel for an Imperial. Rex_Remes (288) - Bonyhad, HUNGARY - MAR 11, 2017

PALATE: a touch of sparkle, medium heavy body, smooth, creamy, overall nice mouth feel. OVERALL: a respectable stout. A tad sweet, but some nice rich/roasty flavors, a little bit of harshness/offness with the bitter ending, but enjoyable. Chalumeaux (1911) - Middleton, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 28, 2017
