Bottle at home. Pours black, nose is coffee, roasted, chocolate, taste is similar, dry, bitter. kathouse (1925) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - FEB 18, 2015
Bottle. Coffee and roasted barley on the nose. Taste is chocolate and espresso. Medium to full body and plenty of dryness. I think the imperial Irish stout moniker is appropriate. Other than the typical nitro carbonation, this is a full throttle Irish stout all the way. I like it. teorn88 (7682) - Rimini, ITALY - FEB 17, 2015
33cl bottle at Porterhouse Temple Bar, Dublin. It pours a brown color with ruby edges and a small tan head. Aroma is sweet and chocolatey, with notesof caramel, dark chocolate and light vanilla. Taste is again medium sweet and chocolatey, with more notes of cocoa, roasted malts and caramel. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, decently tasty stout thelynchfella (199) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 22, 2015
Poured jet black with thick foamy tan head. Aroma: Chocolate malt, espresso. Tastes of dark chocolate, strong espresso, nice and bitter. Linger nicely on the tongue, really good imperial stout! hohops (1047) - Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2014
Appearance is black, a one finger light brown head which settles down. Aroma- very chocolatey and milky, dark malt, fudge, caramel. Taste- big bitterness, roasty malts, coffee, chocolate, hint of leather, medium to full mouthfeel, quite a long and bitter finish, solid malt backbone. Good, maybe more stout and less imperial.

330ml bottle bought from Kris Wines a couple of days ago. 7.5%, BB Sep 2015, very nice presentation. Black, big foamy tan head endures throughout, full lacing. Aroma is musty, a little yeast, slight copper, some chocolate and spice. Body is medium to light, soft carbonation, pretty foamy. Taste is tangy malt, semisweet, drying, a little sharp and fairly bitter. Over-roasted coffee, woody, tangy dried fruits. A little too sharp for me. MunBro (942) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 2, 2014
Nice malty aroma, standard brown/black pour with respectable lacing. Flavour is good, nice maltiness but missing additional notes of spices or chocolate etc. guzgorog (900) - FRANCE - NOV 29, 2014
Noire de chez noire. Beau col de mousse chocolat au lait laissant une dentelle sur le verre. Nez de chocolat, café, malts grillés, noisette. Bouche sur le chocolat. Forte amertume, très sèche. Corps puissant un peu liquoreux. Bonne stout, très sèche, manque un peu de saveur... elbernays (1618) - Dublin, IRELAND - NOV 14, 2014
