Bottle, Brewklopedia, Leicester. Black with a beige head. Roast coffee with herbal cola. Hints of liquorice. Earthy. Peppery alcohol. Quite fizzy. Lacks body. Its pretty good, though.

0.3 bottle. Dark brown, beige head. Nose is fruity and malty. A hint of light roasted coffee. Medium body, light carbonation. Taste is sweet, with toasted malts, licorice, coffee. Strange, for an imperial stout, but enjoyable.

Light beige rocky head stayed well on a very dark brown still body. Full on aroma of malt, coffee, demerara sugar, roasted & dark berries. Medium bodied, crisp, average carbonation & dry on the aft. Roasted malt, bitter coffee, licorice, and citrus with hints of sweet coffee, grape & aniseed on the back.

puren (976) - Starogard Gd., POLAND - JAN 31, 2017
PREZENTACJA: ciemno brązowe, zbyt obfita mydlana piana opada do wysepki; drugie nalanie to już zbita chmura, ktra ładnie oblepia szkło;
AROMAT: likier wiśniowy, czekolada, wino, melasa, spirytus;
ODCZUCIE: ciało średnie, oleiste, nisko nasycone, lekko ściągające, konkretnie rozgrzewa przełyk;
SMAK: czekolada deserowa z melasą i bardziej gorzkawym posmakiem kakao niż goryczką;
OGLNIE: fajne piwko, ktremu bardziej pasowałoby z mojej perspektywy określenie imperialny porter bałtycki niż IS.

Excalibur123 (454) - Soria, SPAIN - JAN 28, 2017
mbar oscuro casi negro con gran cabeza de espuma beige de larga retencin, aromas a malta tostada, fruta madura, licor y azcar Candy; en boca entrada fuerte, muy maltosa, licorosa sin apenas amargor y final dulce, cuerpo pleno y carbnico medio, largo retrogusto, suave y dulce; el alcohol est presente, una stout sin matices destacables y demasiado balanceada hacia la malta.

wrlangin (224) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 26, 2017
330 ml bottle from Hawthorne Cellars. Pours black with medium tan head. Mild aroma of toasted malt. Flavours of toasted malt and small amounts of chocolate and coffee. Definitely drinkable, but certainly not in the top tier of imperial stouts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Kriddie (11) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 30, 2016
Poured a very dark brown bordering on black, with a creamy coloured head that dissipated quickly, although a creamy/tan film remained until I downed the whole glass. Aroma of caramel, roasted coffee beans, roasted malts, faint hints of cinnamom and ash, and a distant metallic. Taste is the same; caramel, roasted malts, ash, with a slight sweetness and bitter. Aftertaste of coffee, ash and caramel which remains for a very long time and is quite strong. Overall a little conservative for an Imperial Stout, although I say this without any negative connotation. There certaintly are I.Ses on the market with a more extreme flavour, but this is a very solid brew which finds a perfect balance of all flavours. A certain deepness which gives all elements its moment to shine, without any "in your face" flavours that dominate the brew. This quality without any over-the-top extremes is exactly why the Troubadour brewery has found its spot in the higher echelons of my top-lists.
