As of late I can not find the time to take tasting notes of each beer I sample. I would like to track and record my thoughts of each so I will just use the simple scoring rubric until more time is available.
22 oz. bottle. Pour was black with a foamy lingering tan head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malt, chocolate, dark cherries. Taste was light bittersweet, very smooth, roast coffee, dark chocolate, dark fruit.

Pours an oil-black with a tan head. Smell is roasted malts, coffee, and dark fruits, but the dark fruits don't seem present on taste. The taste has a good bit of malty sweetness that balances out the good amount of hoppy bitterness. mulbila (24) - - FEB 14, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 14, 2018 Pours thick and inky with a dark tan head. Coffee and roast notes with a little sweetness. More bitter than your average stout but well balanced. ElDesmadre (4446) - Mikołów, POLAND - DEC 28, 2017
Bottle, early 2017. Caramel, molasses, herbal notes, fruity (cherries, vinous notes), herbal hoppy finish, licorice. Medium body at most and where's the chocolate, the coffee and the roast? balloonbuffoon (845) - - NOV 30, 2017
22floz bottle, no date 72.45 IBU, $4, nonic glass. A blackish-brown stout with a light brown head. As expected roasted malt is in the nose, and a scent that reminds me of grain alcohol. The perception of oil makes me what to state that it feels that way, but it's really just super heavy. The flavor consists of full roast coffee and burnt caramel. Decent beer, sub par for style, pretty good quality to price ratio.

Dark fruit/coffee/chocolate aroma, I wish it were stronger. Flat black with no head. Tastes roasty, surprisingly malty for an imperial stout, no hops, kind of a funky aftertaste. Decent palate, low carbonation and smooth, but a little on the thin side. This was $3.99 so a great bargain but just a so-so stout. Inhopwetrust (47) - Venezia, ITALY - NOV 15, 2017
Imperial stour in cui dominano note di cioccolato fondente, melassa, salsa di soia, caramello. Non un must, ma si lascia bere sunteakae05 (6) - - NOV 8, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2017 Holy! Abv of 9.9! Great, strong, stouty beer! Really thick and smooth. Be careful...sucker will get you! Lol. daje (4554) - NORWAY - NOV 7, 2017
Bottle, december 4th 2017. Black body with a tiny brown head. Aroma of leather, smoked ham, dark chocolate. Taste is roasted, coffee, with cocoa and caramel. Speet and alcoholic finish, with a lasting sweet licorice and roast aftertaste. Mrnoluv (362) - long beach, California, USA - OCT 26, 2017
The smell is chocolate, dark fruit, the taste it better sweet chocolate, rasains, plums, the ABV helps give it that malty/sweetness that helps mellow the bitterness. I found this for $3.99, this has to be one of the best deals ever for a strong stout. One of the best bang for your buck.
