11.2 oz bottle.
It pours a dark brownish black with an off-white head. I always enjoy stouts that look this way with the black and white combo.
I like the smell of this one, it does indeed have some spices which add to the goodness, but it is primarily a sweet and cocoa-y brew with a nice bit of caramel and roasted malts. There is also a hint of hops.
The flavor is fruitier with a nice bit of roasted malt. To be honest the hops in this are a bit overt, but then again they work well. IT is reminiscent of their hoppy porter.
I would say if you like something like nightstalker, this is a bit weaker, but very tasty and similair.

Colabrown beer with a weak and brown head. Aroma is interesting and complex, herbs, roastiness, anis and fruity sweetness. Taste is roasted, some herbal nuancees, enough of sweetness, "sweet and sour". interesting taste. Medium bodied, slippery and nice to drink. Interesting, herbal and spicy beer, still spicys are only spicys and not the whole beer. Sissio (1783) - Orsenigo, ITALY - NOV 11, 2013

Bottle 330ml. @ home.
Clear dark brown red color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, caramel, dark fruit, raisin, plum, moderate chocolate malt. Flavor is light heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration, chocolate malt, dark fruit, raisin. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. 
Into the glass pours an almost pitch-black beer, which only allows very little light. The head is flat and short lived. The beer smells chocolaty, slightly smoky, malty. The beginning part is stout-like, pleasant roasty, with well pronounced chocolate notes, paired with a mild smoky taste that seems very pleasant. The aftertaste is chocolaty, fruity, light berry notes come through. The course is pleasant chocolatey, with delicate nuances of smoke, not too intrusive, but still with punch! I like it definitely!

Aroma is malts/cocoa and spices/vegetables. The flavor is malty, a mix of chocolate and caramel as well as having a slightly spicy flavor with thankfully no vegetables in flavor. Not as strong in body or flavor as normally expecting with an imperial stout, could be due to the spices, otherwise this was pretty good, but not exceptional. jimhilt (2634) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 20, 2012
Pours a two finger light tan head that fades slowly to a thin layer leaving a good lace. Almost clear dark brown color. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied. Nose is roasted chocolate and flavor is chocolate malt. $6.00 for a 330ml bottle from Tully’s Beer & Wine Wells, Me. Bamsen78 (5617) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2013
Bottle from Embrouille - thank you! Pours cloudy very dark brown with ruby shades and airy but rocky and stable off-white head. Dark, fruity aroma with notes of malt, caramel, and chocolate. Sweetish, fruity and slightly vinous flavour, with notes of malt, chocolate and liquorice. Roasty and slightly vinous finish. Good, although it tastes more like a Barley Wine than a Foreign Stout.
