This beer is black with a minimal tan head when poured into a snifter, and the aroma is heavily chocolate with roasted and caramel malts. This beer is mildly bitter, mildly sweet, and strongly umami. Also, the combination of the full body, thick texture, flat carbonation, and slightly bitter finish make for a nearly perfect beer. Fulmonte21 (42) - USA - JUN 10, 2009
This is a true stout with no extras. Has a dry simple flavor. You can still smell the alcohol, but not as much as the Bock. This one has a high alcohol content as well and I wouldn’t recommend drinking too many in one sitting. OD40oz (774) - Box Elder, South Dakota, USA - MAR 26, 2009
Nice pour, dark as used motor oil. Nice and thick with a small dark tan head. Chocolatey aroma with noticeable alcohol. Creamy smooth taste with a nice roasted coffee finish. Top shelf. chucklemation (1798) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - JUL 22, 2013
Excellent beer. Has a deep chocolate aroma and a semi-sweet chocolate flavor. It finishes with a very slight taste of licorice and feels very smooth and creamy on the tongue. SanfordBrewer (1610) - Sanford, Florida, USA - SEP 11, 2010

aroma: dark chocolate, roast/charred malts, alcohol, hint of silage.
taste: coffee soda, bitter chocolate, roasted malt, hint of smoke.
simple and straight-forward for style, very drinkable, not astringent or bitter, and a nice clean finish.
Smells of alcohol and rich dark malt. Hints of sherry and cognac aromas. Deep brown color with dense creamy brown head that lasts and lasts. Delicious malt flavor. Some smoky flavors from the roast malt. Hints of coffee and vanilla in the aftertaste. Full bodied and smooth, the mouthfeel is perfect. Damn this is good! Exceedingly drinkable, amazingly tasty, and definitely fit for a Czar! TGL0782 (15) - Illinois, USA - JAN 7, 2011

Pours pitch black with small chocolate colored foam. Smells roasted and chocolate malt with touches of coffee. Taste follows the nose perfectly, chocolate and coffee and strong roasted malts. Full-bodied with a slick texture and very soft mouth-carbonation, Samuel Adams Imperial Stout finishes with dry roastiness.
