On tap at the Tivoli Brewing Tap House. Black appearance with a tan head. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, roasted grain, light coffee, and light caramel/toffee/nutty malts. Similar flavor, adding medium plus sweetness and a slight boozy finish. Medium to full body with a slick, creamy feel and soft carbonation. Good, but not great overall. ccex (1365) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 15, 2016
Bomber pours an opaque dark brown with moderate tan head but no lacing. Aroma has lots of chocolate and vanilla with some roasted coffee and perhaps cinammon. Taste is sweet and syrupy with a boozy and slightly spicy finish. Body is medium to full with a creamy mouthfeel. I get the feeling that Pipeworks wanted a novelty imperial stout this year rather than trying to craft a great Imperial Stout. Ratman197 (15346) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - AUG 15, 2016
Bomber poured a clear dark redfish brown with a lingering ring of brown foam. Aromas of bitter chocolate, vanilla, light coffee and light dried fruit. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of milk chocolate, vanilla and light coffee with a smooth lingering milk chocolate finish. mjmoen (591) - - JUL 31, 2016

Thick dark brown color with a small pale tan head. Chocolate to black malt with a little dark chocolate. Middle has more pale malt characters. Touch of dark fruits. Light feel. Finish and linger reveal more chocolate. 7/14 Plovmand (8613) - Grindsted, DENMARK - OCT 17, 2015
Bottle. Pours opaque black with a dense beige head. Aroma is roasted and has notes of chocolate. Light licorice. Sweet roasted flavor with chocolate and light coffee notes. Ripe fruity notes. Smooth and creamy. Acid303 (674) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - OCT 7, 2015
65cl bottle, served in Duvel glass. Pitch black colour with nice tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, brown sugar, coffee and...wood, although it is not barrel aged. The taste is mostly dark chocolate and roasted malts. The coffee-like flavour also kicks hard after a few minutes. Even sometimes gives the impression that has been aged in oak barrels, so it is the same perception I’ve had before drinking. Mouthfeel is creamy, as usual in milk stouts. Pronounced bitterness and toasty notes. Carbonation is perfect. Very good imperial Stout, but vanilla seems absent.
