On, tap, Pours a pitch black color with a medium tan head tan that leaves pretty good lacing. Smells of roasted malt, chocolate, raisins, plums, and caramel. Tastes of all the same things in the smell. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy with good carbonation. Overall this was an awesome imperial stout lots of different flavors which was nice.

It pours dark brown with mahogany highlights; the head is tan and foamy. The aroma has notes of: chocolate, coffee, roasted walnuts, and figs. The taste is medium bitter that finishes as such and surprisingly dry; there are notes of: coffee, toffee, chocolate, white-grapefruit, and molasses, charcoal, and a slight smokiness. The palate is medium-full bodied, has light carbonation, a slight stickiness, and a long finish. Overall, quite nice - although nothing interesting.

Bottle, from LC, this one was a dark black, the body was thinner then you might expected based on the name, but it had a nice roastiness and it was a creamy stout with a nice finish, a light roasty but overall decent,

Pretty good balance. Aromas of bitter chocolate prominant. Pretty thick consistency but good, not syrupy in a bad way. Average carbonation. A bit creamy. Thick consistency. Taste bitter. Bottle.

Beerenberger (1605) - Fischer, Texas, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Big molasses aroma with malty nots. Pours an opaque black with a nice mostly diminishing foamy tan head. The taste is malt forward. A strong molasses flavor up front, with dark roasted malts and a bitter finish. Medium-full body with medium carbonate. Overall, good but not as smooth as Piropeller Imperial Stout.

JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 13, 2013
Deep black pour with a thick tan/brown head. The aroma is pretty earthy and a little bit of molasses as well. Theres a fairly salty umami character in this one. Salted licorice and an earthy bitterness. Roasty but quite smooth. Clean bitterness with just a touch of light herbal flavour on the back. Its pretty interesting - it doesnt have the typical medium malts that you see in imperial stouts, so the malt profile is pretty straightforward, because of this its pretty unique. No chocolate or coffee or the sort of brown malts that are usually used, but a clean salty roastiness. I enjoy it - even though I recognize its not going to be setting the benchmark for impy stouts.
