ThisWangsChung (836) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - SEP 17, 2013
22 oz bottle into a Duvel tulip. A: Pours a supremely dark brown color, one thats very opaque. Very little head here, just a thin tan-colored film, and even that retains poorly. On the other hand, this has visible alcohol legs. S: This has a lot of boozy dark fruits, along with perhaps a twinge of nuttiness and a twinge of chocolate. Theres also a twinge of bourbon - not actual oaky character, though. An acceptable nose...but man, I was expecting something that was total batshit insanity with a side of bourbon-soaked pecans. And its just not; its really just...boozy. Inhaling directly from the bottle yields more pecan notes, though. T: The opening flavors are very chocolaty - always a good thing in imperial stouts. Bourbon very briefly pops up in the middle, before turning into a spicy, boozy finish. Some pecan flavors also pop up on the back end, becoming gradually bolder as more is imbibed; the strong nutty character is very redolent of Arrogant Bastard to an extent. The booze bite on the back end is more fruity than fusely. Its about as alcoholic as I expect a 13% stout to be, no more, no less, and becomes less of an issue as this warms up. Actually, my chief complaint about this brew isnt the alcohol presence (that gradually calms down), its the lack of complexity. There really isnt much to this beyond booze, chocolate, and pecan. Even worse, there really isnt a lot of harmony or balance between those flavors. But its endearing. Endearing, much in the same way that Merica is endearing. Gawd bless Merica. M: It feels a bit light (Id call it medium-bodied if it werent 13%) and airy, along with a touch of rye-derived coarseness. There isnt much of a substantial feeling on the palate - its almost like it was designed to be surprisingly drinkable for such a big stout. And honestly? It is. At a higher temperature, the boozy notes become obscured, making this even easier to sip. O: Its not often I get a brew where the flavor profile is MUCH better than the aroma (without the aforementioned nose being out-and-out horrid and/or not to my liking), but this is exactly that. I wouldnt call it top-caliber - it doesnt have supreme depth, or even a good balance for that matter. Still, it has a definite charm that makes it much better than the average imperial stout. And hey, its far more likeable than Wesley Crusher ever was.

ciocanelu (1588) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - DEC 1, 2016
Black color with mocha head. Aroma has sticky malt and caramel with some raspberry syrup on top. Taste has also nice chocolate cake flavors, some bourbon, bitter dark chocolate on the finish. Heavy body, lower carbonation, just right for the style. Overall its a really well balanced and easy to drink imperial stout with a very well hidden ABV.

241116. Now this is an imperial stout. I had this beer on tap at Brewski and the first mouthful almost takes your breath away. Big, black and bitter just the way that it should be. Thick in the mouth with bitter sweet and burnt flavours attacking your taste buds from every side. Deep space black in colour with a finish that doesnt seem to end. Do not mess with this beer as you will come off second best.

Nstan svart med litet ljusbrunt skum. Stor staktig doft med fina rostade toner och mycket vanilj. Gigantisk munknsla, oerhrt fyllig, inte s mycket,koldioxid. Fantastiskt mjuk och fyllig stout med runda fina rostade toner av choklad och kaffe med mycket vanilj och stma. En helt fantastisk stout om man gillar den sta varianten.

mrjez (507) - Osaka, JAPAN - NOV 24, 2016
2016 bottle. Shared @ Lingua tasting, thanks to the man from the dark side. Pours near black with a low tan head. A nice rich aroma that really opens up after some minutes, roast, anise, leather, a booze note bringing dark cherry. The flavour is similar, decadently rich malt, cocoa, anise, but in check and melded nicely. Has a smooth syrupy warmth. I loved the 2015 and had it side by side with this. Very different beasts and I think this 2016 won me over.
