I like my imperial stouts and this is good.I like mine more aggressive and stronger but this is very good CHEERS!

beeranarchist (232) - Aalborg, DENMARK - OCT 14, 2006
Almost black (no shit Sherlock? It’s a imp stout!), but when holding the glass directly up againt light a red hue can be seen. Dark chocolate, hops and alcohol in my nose and chocolate (again) bread and bitterness in my mouth. And a little sweetness.

sisyphus12 (99) - Belmont, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 14, 2006
A solid imperial stout. Fresh and velvet consistency makes its medium mouthfeel and sappy finish fun. Not an incredible range of tastes but overal an enjoyable beer for the money

Prometheus (160) - Bamberg, Bavaria, GERMANY - OCT 8, 2006
This stout was a very nice treat. It had a great and complex flavor that went down very smooth. The strong stout taste came through very clearly. There were various different nuances to the taste, including cream, cocoa and molasses. Overall, a very pleasant beer to drink.

michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 7, 2006
Draught at Brewery: Armoa of cream, toffee, and roast. Poured dark brown. Opaque. Brown head lasted. Good lacing. Flavor of alcohol, choclate, cream, and sugar. Sweet. Long finish. Medium body. Soft carbonation. Overall, a good Imperial Stout.

rickgordon (3878) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2006
[Bottle, SBWF] Dark brown, poor head. Prune and chocolate dominate the aroma. Dried fruits overall. Not as darkish in aroma as "the regular Impy". Full bodied, with light coffee, cocoa and molasses. Bit roasty.

3.7
Marsiblursi (3076) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 4, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2006 (Bottle) Pours dark brown with allmost no head. Roasted light aroma with chocolate ice cream and some liquorice. Mocca, rasiny hops and shellfish hints. Salty, strong liquorice flavour with coffee. Peppery with some alcohol. Medium, burned body.

3.8
Enjoyit (3809) - Vadum, DENMARK - SEP 21, 2006
A very nice head. Black/violet of color. The aroma is filled with dark chocolat, coffee and hops. Sparkling and alcohol at my tongue. The taste is malty and with hops.

3.9
GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - SEP 11, 2006
Pours thick black brown w/ a shallow tan froth. Aromas of deep chocolate cake. Full nectar w/ soft creamy effers. Flavors are big on sweet cocoa w/ coffee, creamed leather, black cherry, toasty caramel, charcoal, and roasted walnuts. The cocoa has a fresh, bright bitterness that slowly settles in. Decadent and very soft w/ a nice bittering finish. Alcohol is well hidden. Overall: this specimen is of a more true chocolate character than others in it’s genre. I liked it but it can’t compete with the greats.

legion242 (2348) - Richardson, Texas, USA - SEP 3, 2006
Black as black can be. No head. Very, very smooth and the aclohol is CIA quality. I can’t taste it to save my life, which will be dangerous when I decide to have another. A quality American IS.
