12 Fl. Oz. Can. Pours Dark Thick Black (Ink Like), medium tan head and nice lacing. Aroma of caramel, chocolate, coffee, toast malts. Taste if quite consistent but there is not hiding the high ABV here; Great texture and nice bitter finish. Very in your face beer but highly enjoyable.
A surprisingly good beer. I'm not usually a fan of Stouts, but this is amazing. strowlands8 (275) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 13, 2018
Black pour, tan head. Aroma is slightly ethanol(ic?) with roasted malt and chocolate. Taste is similar, despite the 65 IBU lacks bitterness. MaltOne (412) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 10, 2018
Massive, chewy, classic Russian Imperial. Dark, opaque brown, with a coffee colored, whipped cream consistency head. Aroma is deep roasted malt, hints of chocolate and molasses. Taste follows the aroma. Palate – thick, creamy, rich. Overall… great. (on tap @ 024 in the Arts Mill, Grafton). CacheManyHose (781) - HONG KONG - DEC 31, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2017 Drank on NYE 2017-18 after hiking to Mount High West (and failing to see the fireworks). Pours an opaque dark brown-black with a fluffy beige head. Smells of booze, medium cranberry and plum skin, moderate herbal menthol bitterness, spicy malt, Taste is chocolate, biscuity malt, menthol, light toffee and peanut and spice. Body is heavy, inky, bitter, boozy. Big and bitter. HKdIPA (863) - HONG KONG - DEC 31, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2017 Can from LCBO in Toronto at home in HK on NYE. Pitch black pour with thin, very light tan head. Aroma is sharp leather and wood earthiness with bitter coffee grounds. Taste is similarly sharp and bitter first, with deep roasted coffee and chocolate on a rich but not heavy palate. Straightforward and well-executed big bitter stout.

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2017 The stout I have been searching for. A beer that keeps you satisfied after only one beer. Great to drink slow. androman (2937) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 16, 2017
UT161217. On tap at Kaapse Brouwers, Rotterdam. Nose is Coffee. Dark chocolate roasted malt tonka beans. Medium sweet heavy bitter. Long roasty medium to heavy bitter. Full body oily soft carb. 858517 Turboninja (936) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 15, 2017
Tap(nitro)@Konttori, Tampere, Finland. Strong, bold and malty taste with licorice, roasted soft malts, dark chocolate, a hint of butter cookies. Balanced with wide taste spectrum and long aftertaste like pancakes on a camp fire. Strong, soft body with medium/light carbonation. Overall, superb quality, especially malts are implemented in a perfect way. Not so distinctive though. 7 5 8 4 17
