KajII (801) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - APR 22, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2011 Bottle. Poured a thick dark rich black with a very small (less than 1 finger) dark medium brown creamy head that was fully diminishing and had fair lacing. The aroma hits you right off the bat with a strong tawny port alcohol scent followed by dark roasted cereal malts and a leathery yeast odor with hints of roasted coffee, dark chocolate, some dark fruitiness, oats and a touch of toffee. It tasted mildly sweet with a note of toffee and dried fruit in the beginning then progressed into a nice bitter-sweet flavor with strong coffee and dark chocolate notes at the finish with the flavor lasting an average duration on the palate. Mouthfeel was extremely full in body and a little syrupy yet rather creamy in texture with a nice soft carbonation. Overall an awesome tasting Imperial Stout which has the flavors blending so well that the heavy alcohol odor barely shows itself in the taste.

0.75 bottle @ Sztamfer
Black with a small, tanned head. Very deep aroma of chocolate, cocoa, and wood - amazing despite small complexity. Chocolate, wood, prunes, fruits, vanilla, marzipan. Full, thick, average. Finish is medium long and sweet. Overall the beer does not amaze with insane complexity, but it is nonetheless terrific.

Antonio369 (247) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 29, 2017
65 cl bottle served in snifter. Poured black with one finger mocha tan head. Aroma: Chocolate, vanilla, roasted nuts, coffee, vanilla, pipe tobacco smoke. Taste: dark Chocolate, roasted espresso beans, vanilla, licorice, dark fruit, umami/soy sauce, roasted bitterness, nuts, dark fruit, dates, raisins, caramel/fudge, whole wheat bread, marzipan. Excellent syrupy and chewy mouthfeel, almost like drinking a milkshake. Full body with a super ROASTED bittersweet finish. A real monster of an Imperial stout, it's almost scary...

fantti (1040) - FINLAND - DEC 20, 2017
Pullo @ Alko. Kaatuu snifteriin paksuna ja sysimustana, tiiviillä sormen paksuisella vaahdolla. Tuoksussa on vahvaa lakritsia ja salmiakkia, soijamaisuutta, tummaa hedelmää/luumua sekä hennosti paahdetta, pureksittavaa maltaisuutta ja liköörimäisyyttä. Upea tuoksu. Maussa iskee ensimmäisenä salmiakki, jota seuraa soija sekä kahvinen paahde. Kevyemmin on tummia hedelmiä myös mukana, mutta hyvin hennosti. Lopussa maltaisuus tuntuu myös. Suutuntuma on alkuun öljyinen, mutta terävä humalointi tekee lopusta hyökkäävän ja kevyemmän. Loistavat elementit, juuri sellaiset, joista itse IS:ssä pidän, pl. turhan vahva katkero, joka ei mielestäni sovi ollenkaan vahvoihin stouteihin, vaan vie täyteläisyyttä. Aivan maailmsnluokan olut kuitenkin.
