Black. Has a light-brown head. Medium duration. Aroma with lots of roasted notes, burnt, perhaps coffee. Heavy flavor, sweet, syrup, faint bitterness....and them some coffee, ok, more coffee. Wait a minute and more dark notes are revealed, coffee again, faint chocolate, violation of my mouth. Perhaps laqurice. Zita (6325) - Assentoft, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2011

Bottle. A big, creamy, beige head rests patiently on top of a pitch black body. Lots of coffee on the nose, but also a good dash of something reminiscent of chili, guess it’s the coffee playing my mind some tricks. The flavor is filled with mocha, mocha and more mocha, and also the same chili-like thing found in the aroma. Dry, dusty and full-bodied on the palate, warming too. Long finish. A mocha bomb indeed, dangerously wonderful, still a bit intense and unusual to be a true classic. 110621

2 oz sample smuggled out from a local brunch event by my daughter in her first week as a legal drinker. A proud moment for a father. Dark brown with no head but as expected after a 30 minute ride in an open glass. Nose is fudge, espresso bean and dried dark fruits. Smooth and milky medium body with a tang. Taste is earthy pine, coffee bean, cocoa nibs and caraway. Damn good considering the circumstances. shrubber85 (11448) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 5, 2011
Bottle. Chocolate malt, grass and soil aroma. Sweet dark chocolate initially followed by a moderately bitter vegetal/earthy flavor. Nice body. On the funky side - nicely drinkable. tiong (7339) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUN 4, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2011 330ml bottle @ Pannuhuone, Kuopiojaspe007 (47) - Utrecht/Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 2, 2011
Pours pitch black with a massive beige, espresso type head. Aroma has hints of chocolate, roasted malts and coffee. Taste is heavy with roasted malts, dark coffee and espresso. Slightly sweet and bitter, sticky finish. Well balanced, great and roasty imperial stout.
Looks great, and very interesting aroma with a hint of Spanish pepper. Hints of coffee and chocolate.. very little alcohol taste for this strong beer. Nice. Rosebud butternuts (2396) - Denton, Texas, USA - MAY 31, 2011
