A beer that stayed in the frig longer than it should have. No damage to the brew, but I feel I cheated myself out of the opportunity to try this beer earlier. It should come with a disclaimer saying dont taste this beer until it is above 50*F. A hard beer for me to describe. It has an excellent aroma and flavor as it warms. Cocoa-coffee are clear but other flavors and aromas are there. My palate and mind say I could drink this beer everyday, but my liver says try it and Ill kill you.

sersdf (1020) - chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 13, 2006
UPDATED: APR 28, 2007 somewhat empty aroma, and kinda lacking in the coffee/chocolate/smoky direction ive come to expect from the style. flavor is a very good, but i dont think it compares to, say, the storm king or even the lion stout. speaking of the lion stout, this one feels a little thing and the flavor disappears a little quickly, leaving a sticky alcohol behind. i admit the near-refridgerator temperature is inappropriate, but im going to lay down a couple of these; seem like aging could do them well. rerate: im sick of this crap RIS getting credit on this site. its astringent and chalky as balls and has no coffee/chocolate/vanilla.

RooftopRogue (423) - Champaign, Illinois, USA - MAR 11, 2006
) This beer has an aroma infused with the fragrances of malt, oak, anise, and smoke. It is a black solution with a thick brown head and great lacing. This rich smooth beer offers the palate a plethora of flavors: malt, chocolate, anise, a nutty/biscuit flavor, and smoke. The smoke taste appears briefly in the finish and then later in the aftertaste. A nutty chocolate/coffee taste follows the brief intro of smoke in the finish.

Habanero (4512) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2010 Bottle, 12 fl Oz: Pours with a dark brown/ black colour and a little tan head. Nice lacing on the glass. It has a very Fine aroma of roasted malt and dried fruit. The flavour is of coffee and dark chocolate. Full bodied with a oily texture. Strong bitter finish. I like this rather heavy beer and its therefore highly recommended.

JB99 (27) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 10, 2006
A nice toffee aroma with a slight hop to the nose. A little to much alcohol taste for myself but with that much I guess thats waht you get. Not my favorite Imperial Stout.

olek (26) - Kbenhavn N, DENMARK - MAR 8, 2006
Pours a deep dark color with a nice head. Aroma is very malty and friuty with hints of raisins and roasted coffee. An excellent beer for a cold evening, with a good hoppy bitterness to the aftertaste as well

Beautiful dark reddish color with great head. Fantastisk powerful aroma. Which so much alcohol it is a very strong tasting beer. Its very hoppy and bitter burnt. Far too strong!

One of the great ones. Dark robust flavor. One that will mess you up on a empty stomach. Thats good stuff for me. Aroma doesnt smell anything of fruit, but more to a maple walnut to me.

PhrankSlovacek (54) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 3, 2006
Deep dark brown pour with tall brown head. Raisin, fig, fruit aroma. Roasted malty flavor, light fruit, and a creamy, slightly bitter aftertaste. Impressive.......most impressive.
