slitcher (267) - Freeport, Illinois, USA - JAN 16, 2010
2009 vintage. Pours an oily black with a thick dark tan head. Aromas of chocolate, coffee and slight alcohol. Flavors of chocolate, coffee and brown sugar with a fairly bitter finsh; some alcohol in the finish. This is an amazingly smooth and drinkable imperial stout. Excellent.

LiteWait (266) - New Hampshire, USA - APR 3, 2011
Slow poor from a 22 oz. bottle into a snifter produced large foamy, thick, beige head that shrank real quick. Decent retention. Nose of nothing but roasted malt. Taste is roasted malt with a hint of chocolate in the finish. For a Imperial Stout, this isnt bad but nothing great. It doesnt have one element to make it standout in any way. Greats much better as it warms. AirForceHops shared this bottle with me.

22oz bottle pours dark, thick black with a creamy tan head. Aroma is coffee and chocolate. Taste is rich and thick. Toasty and smokey. A descent bitter aftertaste with a little booze burn. Very good imperial stout.

franksnbeans (265) - Columbus, Maryland, USA - DEC 23, 2007
Busted out the tree and the wife decorated the place so its only appropriate to crack open this Christmas brew. 06 bottle. Pours out jet black with a pillowy cocoa head that sticks around for awhile. Sheets of tan lace along the sides of the glass. Smells of dark chocolate, some dark fruit, a smidge of vanilla and coffee. Taste starts big on chocolate and bakers chocolate, gives way to a little dark fruit then finishes with a bitter hazelnut coffee finish. Lots of layers and nothing overpowers, I think the age has done this wonders. Velvet in the mouth with an insane drinkability with no ABV noticed. Early Christmas for my tastebuds

Swolf3 (262) - Elkton, Maryland, USA - NOV 30, 2008
Bottle thanks to GMCC2181. Poured a nice velvet black with dark tan head. Aroma is roasted barely, chocolate, and some licorice. Flavor is sweet chocolate, some coffee, caramel, and vanilla. Finished smooth as it started, and nice alcohol taste all the way through. A very good imperial stout from Lost Abbey.

smashteroid (262) - Alabama, USA - DEC 18, 2008
Served from bottle. Black color and a nice tan/brown-ish head. Good lacing. Aroma of malts, chocolate, and coffee. Flavor was very roasted with more hints of the coffee than the chocolate. Nice mouthfeel. Mild bitter finish rounds out a very high quality imperial stout.

One of the blackes blacks Ive ever seen in a glass - no light getting through the liquid... The aroma is milk chocolate, toffee, dried raisins and figues. The taste on the other side is the beery equivalent to an perfectly served italian espresso. Very nice x-mas ale

hoppopotamus (260) - Santa Cruz, California, USA - NOV 22, 2010
A black pour with a light brown head that dissipates slowly. Aroma is liquorice, some dried fruit, chocolate, a hint of booze. Flavor is sweeter, some toffee and chocolate, with some burnt notes. ends biterly, from both the hops and the roast malt.
