Stouts and Porters are still a bit of a mystery to me so I bought this really highly touted stout to learn to appreciate this type of brews. I really tried hard to appreciate it but it just does not compute with my taste buds. The aroma is too sweet, with a strong/bitter burnt coffee punch. It looks and pours like over-used motor oil with almost no head. Completely flat, no detectable carbonation. Flavor is unpleasant burnt/sour rubber, with a shot of liquid smoke added on top. No subtle tones can break through the overwhelming primary taste. Very bitter with an aggressive alcohol after-burn. Yuck! My apologies to those who love stouts, I am not questioning your rating but Im just not ready for this type of beer yet.

Samuel214 (1025) - SWEDEN - MAY 17, 2017
Flaska frn bestllningssortiment, SB. Svart med riktigt fingertjockt, tjusigt och stabilt, grddigt beiget skum. Doft och smak domineras av rejlt rostade toner, aska, lder, kaffe, rgbrd, pumpernickel, humle, toffee och chark. Krv old school imperial stout med stor beska och rkiga inslag. Lite lttare kropp n vntat, hade nstan velat ha den lite strre. Annars vldigt lite att klaga p, en elegant imperial stout av hg kvalitet.

Thick gloopy pour. Motor oil dark with light brown head. Wonderful robust coffee aroma with hints of oak and cocoa beans. Dark chocolate and espresso flavors, with burnt toffee and smoky bourbon aftertaste.

meccahh69lol (153) - New Haven, Connecticut, USA - MAY 7, 2017
On draft, nitro pour. This one is an old fave I havent had in too long and it did not disappoint. The aroma is a smooth coffee chocolate, the appearance is decadently smooth and velvety black with a delectable thick lil head. The taste is like a chocolate shake and coffee mixed together with minimal smokiness and a comedically smooth texture. Even le Beccs likes this one! It seems that nitro stouts are the key to a smooth non garbage water experience. One of the best stouts out there! Good for Sunday arcade game time and realizing you need to start exercising again because biking in Pilot Wings for 5 minutes made you sore.

One of the best. Frothy pour. Nutty chocolate aromas which segues to rich bitter coffee flavors.

Frudel (236) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 5, 2017
Big bottle from LCBO. Dark opaque beer with a beige head. Nose is roasted malt, caramel, dark chocolate, dark coffee. Taste is kinda harsh, not that much sweetness, hell of a roasted malt, ashy, kinda unbalanced, would need some aging.

Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. Dość wytrawne, mocno palone, wysoka goryczka, lekkie nuty kawy.

jksipa (876) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - APR 28, 2017
Bottle from the LCBO. Pitch black under a frothy long lasting khaki head that leaves a ton of lace. Nose is roast, dark fruits, coffee, chocolate, and some nuttiness. Flavour follows the nose with a light+ dry sweetness leading to a medium+ coffee and chocolate bitterness and a hint of cherry tartness. Mouth is medium+ and creamy with soft carbonation and a lingering bitter finish. This is a big beer yet the alcohol is well integrated. 9/4+/8/4+/18

AleRider78 (1000) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - APR 28, 2017
651ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a massive frothy creamy brownish head that sticks around fairly long and has a dark brown appearance. Great retention. Lively carbonation. Aromas of dark roasted malts, coffee and chocolate. Flavours are mostly of the malt variety, lots of chocolate and coffee notes, cocoa and roasted malts, some spices as well as notes of dark fruits. Smooth and slick mouthfeel. Abv is very well hidden. Good stuff!

Bottle, 12 fl.oz. Home. A pitch black beer with a medium beige foamy head ; good retention and lacing. Roast, black chocolate, coffee, caramel note, bourbon (?). Medium round sweet, light to medium dry bitter refreshing ; nice balance in a warming atmosphere, acid note. Voluptuous body, oily texture, soft carbonation to flat, bittersweet roasty chocolate lasting finish. Overall, awesome ! Fantastic :)
