Evolutionary (541) - Ohio, USA - AUG 20, 2012
Bottle at mellow mushroom. Almost a whiskey like nose and dark thick body. Smooth malty taste with some sweetness to balance it out. Would go even better as a milk stout if they just added that aspect. Aroma is the only giveaway to the %. ---Rated via my mouth

herinmary (110) - RUSSIA - JAN 14, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2018 Аромат жженого хлеба один в один тёмный козел. Пена нестойкая, пиво жидкое. Карбонизация умеренная. Во вкусе жженый хлеб, обычное темное пиво.

mabuzzer (957) - Hamilton, SCOTLAND - JAN 5, 2018
355ml bottle. Deep, dark brown with a thick tan head. Aroma of cinnamon, dried fruit and booze. Flavour is Christmas - dried fruit, spices and a hint of chocolate

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2017 ABV - 7.0 .Appearance: Dark black, off white head. Very puffy, foamy one finger head. .Aroma: Raisins, dark fruit, soy sauce, caramel, hints of chocolate. .Taste: Upfront, notes of raisins and figs. Bittersweet chocolate, molasses, caramel. The finish is long - a pleasantly soft roasted malt bitterness. Flavor and aroma play off each other perfectly. .Mouthfeel: Creamy, rich texture. Medium body, very easy sipper. .Overall: A- Bottom Line: Well made imperial stout, although at 7% ABV, one may question whether or not this beer is an imperial. I personally will give it the nod. The body and texture suggests it belongs in the style. The bold flavor profile seconds that notion. Quality.

Roasty, smoked aroma. Black, medium brown head. Medium bitterness and sweetness. Milky texture, heavy body, long finish.

Bitek (858) - Warszawa, POLAND - DEC 9, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2018 Paloność, gorzka czekolada, wiśnia, śliwka. Średnio treściwe, wytrawne, mocno palone, delikatnie kwaśne. Średnie wysycenie, spora goryczka. Leciutki IS w starym stylu wypada całkiem solidnie, chociaż szkoda, że nie jest trochę słodszy.

Zilverenmaan (316) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - DEC 6, 2017
Poors dark coffee with dark mocha head, some lacing. Aroma coffee, chocolate, some vanilla and anise, traces of alcohol. Tastes good, not too pronounced though: bitter coffee, some chocolate, fair amount of licorice, grainy, light bitter aftertaste. No disturbing alcohol or carbonation, good, soft stout.

tandembrauer (1669) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 30, 2017
Shared bottle at Øl & Geologi, Norsk geologisk forening Stavanger @ UiS. Pours black With small light Brown head. Aroma of dark bread, dark dried fruits, raisins, ethanol, a little cheese. Taste sweet and fruity-sour With balancing bitterness.
