Can. Black with brown head. Roasted, licorice, dry dust (earth) and some sweet caramel. Some alcohol and some spices in the aftertaste. Good. Capa (3494) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - NOV 20, 2017
Black, used motor oil-like pour with a firm dark brown head. Deep molasses, roasted malts, light vanilla, burnt malt, cocoa, brown sugar. Finish has light burnt malts and sweet dark brown sugar notes. Full, thick body. Chewy. The booze is surprisingly well hidden. A bit warming the end but not like eating fire. Good brew. gnoff (11065) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 20, 2017

Black color, dark brown head. Alcohol, roasted scent. Sweet, light fruity, malty taste. Fudge, sweet, roasted aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel, medium high bitterness.
Burk. Svart med ett beigt skum. Dofter av espresso och lakrits. Smakinslag av kaffe, torkad frukt, alkohol och aska. Alkoholen värmer mer än den stör. Oljig munkänsla. Stor kropp. GregMooreNH (162) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 17, 2017
Pours dark and oily, with a thick, dark and foamy head. Aroma is chocolate and roast. Taste is chocolate and espresso, with a hint of sweet fruit appearing. Finish is smooth with a hint of vanilla, but no sign of the heavy booze within. A dangerous and exciting imperial stout. Stoned99 (1684) - St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 16, 2017
12 ounces can from trade with Sergiy. Aroma: nice coffee, licorice, toffee, caramel, light roastiness. App: pitch black with medium frothy brown head leaving nice lacing. Taste and palate: full body, smooth, lots of chocolate and licorice with a hint of cherries, moderate roasted bitter and alcohol finish. Overall: well made. Enjoyed the taste of this strong imperial stout. Not something I would drink often since it's really strong but the size of the can is perfect so not that difficult to drink slowly in one night. Good. BREWMUSKCLES (2744) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 15, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2017 deep brown almost black brew with a beautiful brown head so full you could bottle it. chewy with a bit of cigar and milk chocolate like the great Belgian. some licorice like flavor and the beer sits just a short while before the alcohol becomes evident. almost like a Vodka but lets not judge harshly. some sweet and a Little gravy smooth substantial and powerful and a nice finish. DocJitsu (2042) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - NOV 11, 2017
Very dark brown pour, sporting a healthy, rich, dark red-tan head. Dark roasted malt and sorghum aromas. The flavors are the same. Thick and smooth on the palate.
