tastybeer (1853) - Indiana, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Draft at source. Black pour/tan head. Poor retention/some lace. Aroma is tangerine/grapefruit, light chocolate/roast. Taste is sweet, chocolate, roast, quite bitter, orange candies, citrus. Palate is soft, oily, bitter finish. More of a black DIPA than imperial stout. Good.

Ahuth (417) - Illinois, USA - JAN 5, 2017

Douberd (5164) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JAN 5, 2017
(Three Floyds Blot Out the Sun) Bottle 650ml at home, thanks to rxeight! Served into a snifter, bottled on 15/1/16 Black coloured body, one finger of thick, dark beige head on top, with good retention. Aroma has light citrus, hops, resin, roasted malts. Taste has fruity notes of citrus, grapefruit, oranges, light chocolate and alcohol, roasted malts on the finish, hoppy bitterness. Medium thick body, good carbonation. Tasty, pretty close to a black IPA.

hopscotch (10761) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 16, 2016
Bottle... Pours dark brown with a small, creamy, khaki head. Decent retention. The aromatic highlights are charcoal and resin. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel with laid-back carbonation. The flavor features roastiness, singed malts and resiny bitterness. No real chocolatiness here - just roastiness. Moderate bitterness and alcohol warmth in the finish. Bottle shared by growler!

muzzlehatch (4901) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 9, 2016
22 ounce bottle from Badger Spirits (February 2016), served around cellar temp or perhaps a bit above in a Maudite snifter. Not-quite-opaque dark maple to black with a largish, slow-diminishing maple-cream head and a bit of fine lacing...nose is burnt chocolate, grapy-vinous, a bit of resinous hops, licorice - pleasant enough but not particularly potent or exciting...body is chocolaty-sweet, lightly acidic, some faint lactic-sour qualities, with a finish that is still fairly sweet but a touch more bitter, woody, and at least a littler drier...mouthfeel is quite soft, carbonation muted but noticeable...very smooth and easy-drinking Impy with almost no alcohol noticeable. This is reasonably solid and Im glad that I can get it easily, given the unavailability to peons like me of Dark Lord - but at the same time, I cant help remembering every sampling Ive had of the latter, and good as this is, well...

jbruner (4359) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - SEP 27, 2016
Pours a deep brownish black from the bomber with thin ring of bubbly tan brown head. Aroma of dark chocolate, tobacco earth, smoky roast notes, and a hint of booze. Taste is more of the same, good balance of deep roasted flavors, booze is well hidden. Thick and chewy, minimal carbonation, hint of oxidation, overall nice stout, as expected from them.

DandyWolfFloyd (1200) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 27, 2016
Aroma - has big alcohol, deep roast, acrid roast, and licorice. Appearance - the body is black, the head is 2" and beige in color. The head settles very slowly, an island of steady foam. Some alcohol cloying. Taste - has rich caramelized sugars, roast, vanilla, coffee, touch of anise, and Pacific Northwest variety hops. Exceptionally well balanced. Palate - full body, sticky texture, average carbonation, and a micro second of bitters and astringent that drops like a rock. Wow!

bigda83 (854) - Jamestown, New York, USA - SEP 9, 2016
Bottle. Pours a dark, murky, brown/black with a foamy tan head. Aroma of soy sauce, smoke, alcohol, leather, some chocolate, sweet malts. Flavor follows the nose, overly smokey and heavy on the soy sauce taste. Interesting. Full bodied, oily texture, soft carbonation, alcohol on the finish.
