Black with a medium sized tan head and good lacing. Aroma of roasted malts and chocolate. Flavors of roasted malts, vanilla and bakers chocolate
Aroma- Chocolate, some roastiness, vanilla
Appearance- Motor oil, dark tan 1 finger head
Taste- Huge hop flavor at the front of the tongue, middle dark bitter chocolate, coffee, caramel, bourbon notes, finish is bitter, roasty, dry coffee
Palate- Full-bodied, motor oil thickness
Overall- Overall, this is an excellent imperial stout. I don’t pick up any of the malbec grape juice, but I think that’s a good thing. I would definitely buy it again. Ferris (17070) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 9, 2014
Bottle - Grape and dark malts. Jet black with beige head. Charred malts, burnt coffee and a long finish. To much char for me. alexsdad06 (11223) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - FEB 6, 2014
Draft at Thirsty Monk. Pours dark brown with a medium beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, some chocolate, grape juice, sweet malts caramel, but the body is not up to an imperial stout standard. drsordr (2925) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - FEB 6, 2014
Draft opaque black with brown hue. Nose light roast and faint fruit. Taste vague floral minimal roast. Light mouth feel. Very light thin finish.

Chocolate coffee aroma and dark brown color. Has a large frothy head. Sweet coffee chocolate flavor. erickok (6036) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JAN 5, 2014
Black bodied, dense tan head. Very fruity, raspberry, creamy, buttermilk, roasted malts. Sticky sweetness, not very balanced. Not really for me, to be honest. It’s too sweet I’m afraid. Doesn’t need the alcohol either. (On tap at Easy Tiger) BelgianBeerGal (4245) - Panama City, Florida, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Can at Wigwam. Interesting stout overall. Tough to fit into a category for me.... must be a foreign stout thing. I think the grapes add a little of flavor and hint of sweetness/mustiness. Nice. _angst_ (5009) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 26, 2013
