This thing just kicks your ass. Beautiful beer. Has the strong, bitter imperial front but the finish is smooth and poignant.

From old tasting notes. Translucent black brown color. Rocky tan head. Intense roasted malt nose. Hints of licorice and molasses. Bittersweet roasted malt flavor. Thick, chewy mouthfeel. strong boozy overtones. Bitter hop finish is long and intense. Very nice.

Samuel214 (1040) - 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.

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 (895) - 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
