Cokemonkey11 (607) - - OCT 30, 2016
Half pint, keg, garage 39 osaka Japan. Pours black with a thin tan head subsiding average slow. Scent is light hints of fruit malt, maybe berries. Vanilla lightly. My partner smells bourbon. Taste is nice dense caramel with light vanilla. Cherries or cherry wood. Light bourbon or sherry. Mild body throughout. Great.

jinroh (1304) - ESTONIA - OCT 9, 2016
Tap at Waseda Oktoberfest. Pours dark brown, almost black. Aroma has strong coffee roast malts, deep black bread maltiness. Tastes bit sourish, sweet and chocolate bitter. Would expect a bit more body from an Imperial Stout and maybe less sour notes. This one is not bad though, has a decent roast profile,chocolate and cocoa. Unfortunately also a bit watery.

Wombata (620) - Kobe, JAPAN - MAR 8, 2016
Draft at Marciero. Aroma: Chocolate, coffee. Palate: Full-bodied. Very smooth. Flavor: Rich chocolate liquor, caramel, coffee, light bitter burnt grain and perhaps a hint of grass. Comment: Smooth entry. Expanding mid-palate that gradually turns into a dry finish.

EdKing (2434) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2014
Keg half pint in Popeyes. Surprised by the averagey rates for this. My second Outsider beer and another that impresses me. Served perfectly in Popeyes in a lovely wide chalice, like brandy glass. Very dark brown to black, opaque, thin off white to tan head. Nose is chocolate, sweet, roasted malt, black coffee, alcohol and coffee liqueur, maybe touch of sherry. Taste is rich dark chocolate, light black coffee, touch of sherry or something vinous. This is delicious.

GenkiGonzo (1088) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 16, 2014
UPDATED: APR 17, 2014 Draught at Bungalow. Jet black with a tan head. A sweet chocolate aroma, not much espresso. Very sweet flavour, more than I expected for the style. Has some dark fruit and sherry notes as well. Light bodied bt very drinkable.

dfearnley (1851) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 30, 2013
Draft to flute Plum, chocolate, toasted malts, and nutmeg. Dark brown with a touch of red and a tan rung like head. Milk chocolate, cereal and hay. Very thin for an imperial stout...very disappointing.

Ferris (13189) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 30, 2013
Draft - Roasted malts and coffee, Jet black with a thin brown head. Roasted malts, black coffee and not nearly enough body to match. So big on flavor and light on palate just doesnt do it for me.

Westkyoto77 (625) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 16, 2013
Draught at Bungalow. Jet black, thin tan head. Espresso and malt nose. Sticky but not overly so. Well-balanced flavours of dark chocolate, licorice, dab of soy sauce. Satisfying without being over-heavy. Delightful.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4767) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 19, 2013
UPDATED: APR 5, 2014 8% at Bungalow on tap. A nice dark cola brown pour with a thick beige head. Weak chocolate aroma & smooth but thin body. The taste is well balanced between sweet syrupy chocolate & roast coffee bitterness but is more sweet by a hair. Decent.----new, Dec 2013----- 8% Glass 950 yen at Aoi Beer Stand. A great black pour with a tan head with ridiculous staying power. Nice rich smooth chocolate+cocoa aroma. Medium to full bodied. The taste is chocolate, vanilla, roasted notes, cocoa paste, creamy. Really good stuff.---March 2014--- On tap at Molto, a really nice rich creamy chocolatey aroma. Dark black pour with a light beige head & good lacing. Nice med-full bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. The taste is potent, a little boozy but with good chocolate, dark chocolate, fudge kind of flavors.
