Poured black. Aroma was tangy and sweet. Reminded me of a sweaty foot or sock. Roasted malt flavor was also tangy with a bitter finish. Medium bodied with an alcoholic taste on finish.

A nice heavy thick stout. Had a very nice dark appearance to it. Very flavorful taste to it which was the best part about it.

TheBeerGenius (154) - Pittsburgh, PA, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 14, 2005
This is a very good beer. Heavy, rich taste that was still a little sweet. Didnt have as much of the coffee taste that guinness has. Somewhat lighter and hoppier than other stouts.

This is a standard by which all stouts should be mesured. Fabulous beer. Great colour. Great flavour. Truely a luxury beer.

frankenkitty (2008) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - MAR 12, 2005
Bottle poured a near-black stout with an average-sized light brown head. Lacing crept quickly back into the head. Aromas of brown sugar, brandied figs and (remarkably) egg nog. Bittersweet, full-bodied flavor with a light hop tingle. Very good.

wnhay (722) - Princeton, New Jersey, USA - MAR 11, 2005
Pours black as Starbucks Italian Roast with a creamy head that lasts longer then other Imperial Stouts I have seen. The aroma is very rich consisting of Thomas Sweet like chocolates, perhaps Rasberry and Cherry, wine and a lot of caramel. Butterscotch comes into the taste making very interesting. The palate is very fine but a bit too sweet in my opinion. Overall I like this a lot, but the sweetness is a bit too much.

aenimopiate (176) - The United States of Texas, Texas, USA - MAR 6, 2005
This beer pours like east texas sweet crude oil and has a glass presence that refuses to be ignored. The aroma of mocha is apparent from the moment you open the bottle and translates to a roasted coffee flavor, with a fairly well hidden alcohol presence.
