MrTipple (3923) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2016
Sweet, dark toasted malts, molasses, slightly burnt sugar, prunes, plums, other dark fruits. Very dark brown, massive, frothy, beige head. Light sweet. More sweet, dark malts, fruit, chocolate, light cacao, soft carbonation, medium to full bodied, more dark fruits in the finish. Really liking this Stout, great dark fruits in aroma and palate. Bottle from Drinks of the World, Bern.

mile (3872) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 7, 2011
Bottle. Dark brown, virtually no head. Moderate malty and lightly sweetish aroma, licorice and saltiness, light hoppyness and roasted malt. Body is medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, roasted malt and licorice. Finish is average, malty and dryish, roasted malt and salty licorice. OK although I am not big fan of licorice.

chibuck (3511) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 7, 2011
bottle... dark brown, not much of a body for a ris, big light tan tan, great retention and lace... the aroma is super roasted, a bit of char and chocolate as well, smells weirdly carbonated, reminds me of a danish stout, weird hot grassy finish... the aroma is tolerable but the taste is not, harsh char, weird grass not a good beer at all

Deep black color with a thin beige head. Aroma of licorice and spices. Flavor of licorice and spices, some bitterness in the end. Light to medium body with a vinous texture and soft carbonation.

jake65 (3447) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - MAR 22, 2015
Bottle: Pours a lighter than expected brown and despite my best efforts produced no more than a tiny ring of brown head. The nose is light and airy, slightly sweet. Vanilla and cocoa with faint roast. A little bit of spice in the taste, but I cant pinpoint anything. Modest roast and light floral bitters.

pintbypint (3352) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 2, 2012
330ml brown bottle. Beer #2 from Craft Beer Advent Calendar. Dark brown, beige creamy head, a few light spots of lace in the glass. Nose has chocolate malt and light spicy yeast. Taste is malty, muted cocoa, light roasted notes, slight lemony tang, slight woody note. Dry finish, some bitter chocolate and mild spice. Medium body, medium carbonation. Alcohol is well hidden. Decent, reminds me of a porter.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - AUG 13, 2013
Serving: 330 ml. bottle from State Line Liquors. it pours a light cola color. It took a somewhat aggressive pour to get a small, light tan head. The nose is unusual. Prune, chocolate, a slight vegetal note I cant quite place (cooked carrots maybe?). There is a lot going on spice wise, almost reminding me of a Christmas candle. The light chocolate notes come through, but barely. Calling this an imperial stout as the label does is a misnomer. Really thin for a stout (much less for an Impy). Oily, filmy mouthfeel that I dont really care for. This one didnt blow me away.

Gerbeer (3327) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 27, 2013
330 ml bottle. Pours a very dark brown with full tan head. Aromas of cocoa powder, heavily roasted malt, raisins, and copper piping. Flavors of roasted malts, light chocolate, light cooked vegetables, and tobacco. Lighter body than I expected. A tad thin and metallic.

drpimento (3276) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 4, 2010
Bottle says both "Imperial Stout" & "Ale Brewed With Spices", so it could be in a couple of categories. Anyway, poured with a small, light tan head that quickly subsided and no lace. Color is a hazy, very dark, almost opaque, brown. Aroma is roasty and malty. Flavor is simple and like aroma. I dont pick up much in the way of spices - perhaps cinnamon. Body and carbonation are ok. Finish is like flavor and short and just a bit of alcohol at the very end. Not worth the price.

suprchunk (2985) - Crestview, Florida, USA - JUL 23, 2011
Dark, toffee brown color. Small creamy almost tan colored head. Minimal lacing. Smells of chocolate, raisins and plums. A slight artificial aroma, like fake chocolate. Tastes malty and cereal like. Nice and sweet. Creamy mouthfeel, and a slight roastiness left behind. Decent beer.
