Aroma is lighter for an imperial stout. Boozy with a little acidity. Big chocolate note. Looks perfect. Very dark brown with a very creamy head. Great taste. Big chocolate note. Acidity cuts through quite a bit. Finish is a bit of booze with more chocolate. A little acidic on the palate. Full body. Nice finish. Overall this is a solid stout with a much better chocolate note than others. Acidity comes through a bit too much. Otherwise solid.

BB backlog. Bottle, pours a deep dark brown, nearly black. Head is 2 finger and beige in color. Smell is roasted malt, coffee, toffee, and rich chocolate. Flavor is oak, cocoa, barley, and subtle grain. The booze was hidden well for 10.8 percent, tasted closer to 8

kerenmk (4361) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 26, 2016
Bottle shared at a Yom Kippur tasting at Max place. 2016 bottle. Black with a tan head. Chocolate-covered cherry, sherry aroma. Bitter, ink, alcohol in the mouth. Full body, smooth and syrupy. 11.5%abv. but doesnt feel like it at all. A little roasty and bitter finish. Good.

LearninBeer (500) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - OCT 26, 2016
The aroma is sweet bread, a little licorice raisin. Pours black with an amber hue, no head (this bottle is probably 2007 or 2008) and no lacing to speak of. The taste is some sweet and some bitter. The body is medium, the texture creamy, the carbonation average and the finish bitter. Tastes of chocolate, dates, very very good!

DSG (12345) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 16, 2016
Bottle sample at a Yom Kippur eve tasting at Maxs place. Thanks kerenmk. 2016 bottle. Black with a tan head. Aroma of roast, chococlate, coffee, a bit of cherries and more fruits. Great sweet flavor, rich, with roast, chocolate, a bit of coffee, some dark fruits, light alcoholic note, and a bitterish note. Full-bodied, rounded. Really good.

Im drinking the 2016 version, 11.5% ABV. I can smell the flaked barley, along with some dark fruit, coffee and cocoa. Not boozy or roasty at all. Flat black color with a light brown head. It looked watery pouring out; I have to dock it a point for that. The dark fruit makes an appearance in the taste as well, along with brown sugar and roasted malt. Not very complex, but not bad either. Strong and long lasting aftertaste. The palate really let me down. An Imperial Stout this big should not be this thin and watery. Overall, this was pretty good but I dont know whether I would seek it out again. It was expensive, not really worth it.

Purchased at Siciliano's Market in Grand Rapids, MI; enjoyed at home after a long long run and lots of driving to the suburbs. Appearance is pitch black, moderate thickness. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, hazelnut, vanilla, smells nice. Taste is very good, light burn from ABV, strong chocolate notes, finishes dry, very good stuff.

Bottled 01/29/16. Pours black, small quickly dissipating tan head. Aroma is super roasty, lots of chocolate, some coffee. Flavor is very roasted malt, chocolate, sweet chocolate notes, maybe some vanilla. Decently sweet. Nice full body, very good.
