Merrill (79) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 22, 2012
Bottle from Binnys. Has the appearance and aroma of a stout much lighter than any "Imperial" Ive seen. Its a lovely medium dark brown with a fine lace. The aroma is earthy, oakey with a slight sharp alcohol tang. Perhaps some fermented berry. The mouth is milkier than the color tells. Old wood in the flavor again with alcohol bite and a little natural whiskey background. Its ok, but I probably wont buy it again at the price

Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 17, 2012
Aroma more like a porter, chocolate roast and stewed earthiness. Looks like a dark brown ale. Starchy malt flavor with some strange spicy after notes that linger like pepper after a meal. Not too thick either. I guess Id call this a winter warmer, but not a stout.

Tmoney99 (13757) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 15, 2012
Bottle. Poured dark brown color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate dark malt and spice aroma. Medium body with a dry smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium spice and dry chocolate flavor with a medium soft sweet finish of moderate duration. Very soft brew.

kramer (5950) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 5, 2012
11.2 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body with a one finger fizzy light brown head that left a bit of lacing. The nose is really quite interesting. Not sure if I like it or not. It smells a bit more like grape jelly than beer. Not sure what kind of spices are used here, but they are certainly overpowering the malt in the aroma. The harder I try, the more I get a little roast and chocolate, but its in the background. The flavor is a little sweet and spicy with some dark roast malt. Lighter bodied for an Imperial Stout, a touch clingy on the finish, with soft minimal carbonation. Not really my kind of Imperial Stout, much like the coffee one that I had from them. Makes me want an Expedition Stout.

reebtogi (5835) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 27, 2012
330ml bottle pours a dark brown color with some red highlights and a thick light brown head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is roasted malts and chocolate with some fruit. Taste is chocolate malty sweetness with some fruit and roasted malt bitterness and very little hop presence. An interesting imperial stout with the presence of the fruits, but still quite delicious.

0.33 l bottle. Dark reddish brown. Aromas of orange and chocolate with hint of cola. Smoothly roasty flavor with coffee and chocolate, faint orange. Smooth palate. Nice orange-chocolate feeling, could have a dash more orange.
