Pitch black. Big brown head that quickly disappears. Aroma and taste of roasted malt and bread. A bit sweet. Medium body. BillWyce (1086) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 7, 2014
From notes: Poured opaque, inky black with a small, thin caramel-colored head that was gone quickly. Aroma mixes notes of bitter chocolate and roasty coffee. Full body, moderately thick with an oily note that lingers in the finish. Flavor of dark, roasty coffee that gives way to a note of lightly bitter chocolate. The coffee becomes more pronounced as it warms. Very good. scotchzombie (590) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JAN 7, 2014
Pours dark brown black with almost no head. A rim is tan in color and there are some finely-bubbled legs. The mild aroma is coffee and molasses. Taste is creamy sweet cocoa into molasses and roast coffee. The finish is burnt malt into a mild but distinctive hop bitterness. Some sense of the ABV but it is warming and subtle. There are notes of dry bakers chocolate as well. This is not as in your face and flavor-forward as some other top ImpS, but it has depth, balance and real drinkability. I enjoyed the hoppy finish which nicely balances the sweet malts. Excellent. Is there such a thing as a sessionable Imperial Stout?

Doften är bärig, lätt vinös, mörkt bröd, lite söt. Stor kropp och mycket kolsyra. Smaken är av mörka bär, söt, lätt rostad med kaffe, mashmallows, och en lite torrare avslutning där en mer tydlig rostad bitterhet träder fram. Och kaffe, och citrus. peral2 (579) - SWEDEN - JAN 7, 2014
En härlig nästan kolsvart stout dom gick att uppbringa på Systembolaget i Göteborg . Lagom kolsyrad och riktigt god,

chocolate, coffee and malts all around. a nice vanilla aftertaste mixed with dark chocolate. mouthfeel is a bit thin. nice beige lacing. overall good, not great. Hoppsan (151) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 6, 2014
33 cl bottle. Pours pitch black with small head. Roasted malts, coffee and chocolate in aroma. Similar notes in taste, with an unpleasant subtle flavor of ethanol. Oily and acidic mouthfeel with long, bitter finish. Nice, but not the best Imp S.

@ Havregatan. Flaska från Systembolaget (39:-). Rostad doft, vanilj. Rostad (nästan bränd) smak, mycket salmiak, kaffe, viss sötma, alkohol. Fyllig, oljig i konsistensen, bra beska, torr, lång avslutning. Acknud (1081) - Morganfield, Kentucky, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Thick and mouthy. Pours black with a soft amber head. Aroma in chocolate and roasted malt. Taste is heavy on roasted malt, coffee and fishes with a smooth bitterness. TheJester (2542) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 3, 2014
355 mL bottle - 2013 versio. Pours just about as black as brown can be, though there is virtually no head. The aroma has a lot of chocolate, but there is also anise and a little roast and honey in there. The beer tastes very fresh - I can almost smell it brewing as I taste it. Lots of green hops in there for an IS. Roast, cocoa, a little coffee grounds, chocolate covered cherries - all of these things fighting to make their presence felt, but only barely succeeding.
