This stout is all licorice, molasses, and roast. Beautiful black pour, but everything else is just okay. AgentAle (1811) - FORT MCMURRAY, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 23, 2015
Aroma is chocolate, mocha, toffee, vanilla beans, fig, caramel and dark roasted malts. Taste is again roasty and almost chewy deep malt body that is enhanced by caramel, chocolate and vanilla. Transitions into moderate bitterness that is balanced quite well. Given the ibu and abv, this finishes pleasantly well. Appearance is black with a thin pearl head that retains fairly poorly.

This has a sticky, foamy head on a dark pour. The flavors features full on dark malts. Coffee, rye, and chocolate blend together into a sturdy whole. It starts sweet and then finishes sharp and hoppy. There is toasted coffee and cola in the aroma. A very good IS and offered at a good price, too. maley1 (1301) - Calgary, CANADA - JUN 5, 2015
Black pour with small beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, and hint of hops. Taste of roasted malts, coffee, unsweetened chocolate, hint of caramel and faint hops. Full bodied, perfect carbonation and perfectly balanced. Everything works together great in this beer with no over the top flavors or bitterness that is characteristic of this style. Just a nice smooth excellent beer! Gription79 (2892) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - MAY 6, 2015
Poured from a 22 ounce bomber. There is a ton of coffee in this beer, some bitter chocolate, light caramel maltiness, fruity alcohol notes, and a firm bitterness.

Pour on tap at Union Barrelhouse, darkblack pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of dark fruit, chocolate, coffee into a bit of roast, slight caramel with a hint of vanilla, slight sweet molasses. Taste was a mix of thick roast, coffee intoa slight dark chocolate, cocoa powder type note with a hint of dark caramel, finishing slightly sweet, slightly roasted. ljthiessen (1438) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 15, 2015
Bottle. Dark brown pour with a thin tan head. Aroma is chocolate and vanilla, some cocoa. Flavour is lighter bodied than expected, but nice chocolate and cocoa notes, pretty flavourful. Not bad. SG111 (2026) - New York, USA - MAR 8, 2015
On tap at the brewery. Pours black, tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate and coffee. Flavor is similar. Really unremarkable for an imperial stout.
