Sammy (11375) - Toronto, Ontario, - FEB 12, 2013
A perfect match for Valentine’s Day. Very chocolate-it looks chocolate with black body and large mocha head; it smells chocolate with some roast; it tastes chocolate, although baker’s version. It is dangerous drinkable and citrus hops show itself in the finish. Nice!

500 mL bottle. Dark, dark brown, with a medium head the colour of chocolate ice cream. Nice lookin’ beer. Roast in the nose a little booze, a tiny bit of coffee grounds. This is a very hoppy IS, with the hops taking on an earthy tone in conjunction with the malts. It’s interesting; it’s good. They are actually the dominant flavour. Which means that I’d like to see a little more from the malt profile.

Tranquillity (1927) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 20, 2015
Draught at the brewery. Black body, quite light brown head. The aroma is different from many others. Instead of coffee and chocolate it has a distinct sense of sweetness to it, with bitterness of hops shining through. The palate is oily at first, but soon explodes into foam which covers all the flavor. The bubbles cover an flavor and the only thing left when swallowing is alcohol, which absolutely should not be in an imperial stout. quite disappointing.

The beer poured a solid black with brown edges and a dark brown head. The aroma was coffee, chocolate, and plenty of roast. The mouthfeel was full-bodied with average carbonation. The flavour was a nice balance of roasted malt, dark chocolate, and coffee.

Johnsense (1414) - - FEB 20, 2014
Dark pour, massive mocha head. Bakers chocolate, roasted nut, toast in aroma. Taste is pretty similar, bakers chocolate and milk chocolate, roasted malt, fairly sweet and bitter, with hops coming through in the end. Big body. Definitely worthwhile, though the alcohol will hit you if you polish off the bottle by yourself.

jkwood04 (5320) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 13, 2014
22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours black with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate and notes of coffee, some dough and light caramel, and hints of bitterness. Smooth to thicker texture. A solid imperial stout.

mcberko (14979) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 12, 2014
650mL bottle, sent from ratyger (thanks a lot, Sam), pours jet black with a medium brown head. Aroma brings out roasted malts, chalk, espresso, and charcoal. Flavour is robust, with loads of roasted malt, espresso, chalk, and some cocoa. Very robust and somewhat sludgy, with a roasty, espressoy finish. Great stuff.

SlovakSniper (5262) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 4, 2014
Une robe presque noire et une mousse brune qui est agréable à regarder. Un début de dentelle est visible sur mon verre de Hill Farmstead. Un nez malté et bien houblonné. Des grains noirs qui fument. Du pain très rôti. Du cacao Forastero. Un goût percutant. Des saveurs de réglisse salée. Du chocolat presque pur et des houblons citronnés. Une bouche doucement agitée. Un corps crémeux. Une finale amère. Des grains rôtis qui sont intenses. Des houblons américains qui montrent une certaine puissance. Décidément, un stout impérial qui, sans complexité, plaît à mes papilles gustatives et aux cellules de mon cortex orbitofrontal.

rodenbach99 (4318) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 4, 2014
Bouteille partagée (merci Milan). Belle robe bruine foncée pour ce stout avec une mousse beige. Un nez intense de café et de grain rôti. Une bouche crémeuse, ronde avec des notes amères dominantes. Une finale un peu sèche marquée par l’amertume et l’âpreté et la poussière. Agréable mais pas un chef d’oeuvre.

On tap at brewpub. Black with a nice creamy mocha head that just sits and invites you to drink more. Nice roasted malt, bittersweet chocolate shavings, hint of anise, alcohol warms but doesn’t overpower, smooth, moderate carbonation and full body, dry and chocolate finish, easy to drink.
