tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - FEB 3, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2014 Bottle: thanks, Mike! Black body, no light getting through this one... Good looking, deep leathery mocha cap on top that leaves nice webs of lacing behind & easily foams back up with a swirl of the glass. Lovely aroma with roasty cocoa nibs, milk chocolate, faint licorice, some dark currants, burnt brown sugar, & rich fudge cake. Robust, decadent, & sweet, yet controlled. Taste has lots of creamy, roasted oats with mounds of bittersweet chocolate, brown sugar, & a touch of black coffee beans. A slight prune/licorice bite in the finish with an aftertaste coating dominated by bitter dark chocolate & roasted oats. Nice, relatively thick, mostly creamy body. Wow! Wasn’t expecting much from this, as many other Hoppin’ Frog offerings have let me down, but this was a great imperial stout... One that I would definitely buy again & again if it were available locally!

HIGHB4LL (837) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 16, 2014
Shared at a bomber tasting. Appearance: dark brownish red color, clear, small brown head. Aroma: chocolate, slight roast, minimal coffee notes. Palate: Full body, smooth oily texture, drying finish. Taste: malty sweet with light hoppy bitter finish. Overall, perhaps one of the best done imperial stout according to style I have had. Fairly simple, but done so well and so smooth that you almost forget about that.

Concealer (1224) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 19, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2014 Tap at hops and pie. Dark ruby brown with a thin chocolate brown head. Aromas of dark fruit, raisins, plum, chocolate, roasted malt, caramel, light oats and light vanilla. Flavor is the same, complex. Starts out sweet with a slightly bitter roasted malt and coffee end. Full bodied, smooth and a bit velvety.

stoutnick (840) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAR 21, 2014
Black and oily with no real visible head. Smell is dark malt and a certain sweetish oatsy aroma. Taste is very well balanced between the roasted malts and the sweetness - think I might even prefer this base beer to the bourbon barrel version. Good solid stuff.

Staffan47 (909) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 18, 2014
Tap på OC i samband med Astralsläpp nr 2. Kaffe dominerar doftbilden. Rostade och brända stoutdofter. Svagt mörk choklad. Len, som sig bör. Hög beska och krämig kropp. ("Inte så imponerad" står det även i anteckningarna även om jag vill minnas den som riktigt bra).
