3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle to shaker glass. Pours an opaque black with a sparse tan head that dissipates quickly. Good lacing. Lots of prune, date & fruit flavors. Pretty heavy mouthfeel. Not much hop accents at all. Tasty.
Smells of dark chocolate, bread, roasted malt and ink. Pitch black with a thin tan head. Little carbonation. Can really taste the molasses, coffee roast, charred toast, nuts, malts, and bitter chocolate. The flavors are complex and makes it easy to drink for the alcohol %. Chocolate malts become more present as the beer warms up and it sweetens. vinivini (3247) - Gomel, BELARUS - JAN 16, 2018
Bottle. Misty deep brown to black. Beige head. Aroma: big malts, roast, molasses, esters. Vinous. Medium to full body. Taste: light sweet. Rich maltiness. Dried fruit. Port wine. Some caramel. Well-hopped. Perfect. That's what I mean by a classic imperial stout. jmgreenuk (10520) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JAN 15, 2018
12 fl Oz bottle, 2013. Poured a clear dark brown colour with a frothy tan head. The aroma is roasty caramel malt, smoke, coffee, chocolate, big liquorice. The flavour is moderate sweet, liquorice bitter with a rich oily roasty malt, alcohol, hop bitter palate. Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation.

Another great one from Sierra Nevada. This is head to head with Old Rasputin. Narwhal pours with a thick, cream-colored head that hangs around nearly to the end. I definitely pick up dark cocoa, roasted coffee and a very slight sweetness. Celebration Ale and Narwhal are a great left jab and right hook for Late Fall and Winter. I am not a Sierra promoter -- but -- I picked these up about a month apart and they really hit the spot for this time of year!

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2017 Pours a pitch black coloration with a large, creamy head. Smells wonderfully of rich milk chocolate, with notes of caramel, coffee and a hint of dark fruits. Taste follows the nose, with an outstanding, smooth and rich milk chocolate taste and notes of roasted malt, coffee, dark fruits and just a hint of licorice. Light bitterness and and a very rich, creamy and smooth mouthfeel. I think this ages incredibly well. I had a 2016 bottle and the chocolate was so rich and smooth, while the bitterness seemed pretty light. I'd take this over Old Rasputin any day, which is more coffee-forward, sweeter and has a much worse mouthfeel, in my opinion. GregMooreNH (385) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 9, 2017
Pours deep, dark brown with a thick, dense head that lingers. Aroma is chocolate, roast and the distinctive magnum hops. Taste is chocolate, toffee and roast - each working in slowly. Finish is smooth coffee flavor. A very good imperial stout. MKromhoutNC (33) - North Carolina, USA - DEC 8, 2017
Good stout taste - thick, only slightly sweet, caramel coffee goodness. I think I'll drink the rest!

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2017 Аромат поджаристый, солодовый, кофейный. Во вкусе хороший баланс жженого солода и кофе со сливками без лишней горечи и сладости, но и без изысков. Vighals (4597) - SÃ¸rumsand, NORWAY - DEC 4, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2017 Svart med fingerhøyt beige skum. Lukter salt lakris, noe pepper og kakaopulver. Fyldig. Smaker salt lakris, noe sitrus og kaffebitterhet, lett maltig sødme.
