355mL thanks to maniac. Clear deep mahogany with tan head. Weak retention. Nose is black olive and marmite with salty black patent black. Like a foreign stout. Taste is carboardy and salty with odd paper and tannins. Sticky sugar.

Dark black pour with brown head. Roasted malts and dark chocolate on the nose. Taste is very interesting mix of chocolate, fruit, dark roasted malts. An enjoyable beer. TheJackalope (30) - Georgia, USA - MAR 24, 2012
UPDATED: APR 16, 2012 THIS IS NOT AN IMPERIAL STOUT. THIS IS AN IMPERIAL BLACK ALE. That being said: this is a very complex beer. Dark and rich with a pretty quick finish. This is not a beer for the uninitiated. Complex fruity heads. Large aroma out of the bottle. Tastes like it pushes for its gravity. Might mature beautifully if put up for a year or two, and mellow that bite out a bit, or smooth it. Overall a very interesting offering. jjgmd (2288) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - MAR 21, 2012
Pours rich opaque black with a tremendous foamy mocha head, actually needed patience for the pour. Aroma is malty, with coffee and chocolate nose and some licorice. Very different and complex taste, sweet with tastes of chocolate and appreciable berries. The finish is dry and flat. Quaff Score 6 / 10 For a different Imp Stout try it.

Pours a dark black with a brown head and aroma of chocolate and roasted malt. Taste is sweet, of roasted malt, chocolate, fruit, and hops with a dry, smooth finish. Interesting brew, the fruit flavors really come through and provide a unique taste to an imperial stout. tkrjukoff (4334) - SWEDEN - MAR 16, 2012
Bottle 33 cl, trade. Pours black with a small brown head. Aroma is sweet, fruity, roasted, malty, dark fruits, fidges, port and nutty. Flavor is acidy, sourish, sweet, coffee... much like aroma, very drinkable with decent bitterness. Finishes roasted coffee and fruity. Rrauth (1196) - North Carolina, USA - MAR 6, 2012
This is by far one of my favorite beers. I love the aroma of chocolate and roasted smells. The appearance is Black clear and frothy with the reddish pomegranate showing in the head. I would love to know how to clone this as I would have it all the time. NordicV (2542) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - FEB 18, 2012
Helt svart öl med brunt skum. Doft av kaffe och mörka bär. Smaken är bra balanserad mellan en viss sötma och en påtaglig rostad ton och beska. mzaar (3739) - Varberg, SWEDEN - FEB 7, 2012
Trevliga dofter av choklad, kaffe och citron. Smakar aningen för bittert för min del, men är ändå ingen dum öl alls, där framför allt den mörka chokladen dominerar och svartvinsbärsaft finns i bakgrunden.
