guzgorog (747) - FRANCE - NOV 11, 2016
Brune trs fonce, haute mousse laissant une imposante dentelle sur le verre. Au nez on retrouve du candi, pruneaux, fruits trs murs, raisins secs. La bouche est sucre, malte et pice avec des notes de raisins rouges, de pruneaux, de caramel et de plum pudding. le corps est rond, la carbo importante, peu damertume, lalcool est bien masqu. Cette bonne bire nest pas un stout, elle ressemble avec une ale belge forte ou une double.

Grumbo (1655) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2016
Bottle from Beautiful Beers, Bury St Edmunds. Pours very dark brown with a lasting beige head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, liquorice, dark fruits. Medium sweetness, some roasted bitterness, touch of sour. Medium to full body, slick texture, not highly carbonated but fizzy mouthfeel. Dry chalky sweet milk chocolate finish.

nathanvc (262) - Brugge, BELGIUM - OCT 23, 2016
Pours hazy dark brown to black with a frothy tan head. The aroma contains roasted malts, coffee, spices and some chocolate. It tastes medium to heavy sweet and light bitter. Lingering but light roasted finish. Oily texture and soft carbonation. More like a Dubbel than a real Stout, but Id drink it again anyway.

ruigo (2465) - PORTUGAL - OCT 6, 2016
33cl bottle. Dark brown with nice tan head. Good retention. Light roasted malts, nuts and licorice in the aroma. Fizzy carbonation and medium body. Taste is light sweet with coffee notes. Dry astrigent finish. Overall, unbalanced beer with too much carbonation.

andniz (205) - POLAND - SEP 26, 2016
Aroma mostly of bread, caramel, a bit of nuts and spiciness Verylight color for a stout, it was not even deep brown Rather sweet, pretty watery for an imperial stout, very lightly roasted not a bad beer, but definitely not a stout

Hopverdju (816) - BELGIUM - JUL 30, 2016
Donkerbruin met ecru/crmekleurig schuim. Geur: alcoholisch en precies wat oxidatie (nochtans redelijk jong), gestoofde zoete appels, rozijnen. Smaak: peperkoek, koffie verkeerd, peren. Romig mondgevoel. Medium koolzuurprikkel. Afdronk: licht bitter, noten. Dit bier doet eerder denken aan een quadrupel dan aan een Imperial stout.

KoNrRiI (1260) - rhus, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2016

0.33 bottle.
Black color with a small, coffee-colored head leaving some lacing. Aroma of caramel, butter, dough, and vanilla. Taste is made up of coffee, malts, and some dark cake - it is sweet yet very delicate for a stout, I would not even classify it as an Imperial Stout. A medium body, a somewhat creamy texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is medium long, very malty, and a tad too alcoholic. Overall the beer is mediocre and not particularly stout.

onceblind (7846) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 1, 2016
Not super dark black, almost like a schwarzbier, with a light tan head that evaporates a little fast, leaving no head at all. Nice chocolate-ish aroma and a faint licorice and biscuity nose. Smooth and Belgian ish flavor with some dark malt, no smokiness or roast, some smooth chocolate undertones, a faint Belgian yeast fruitiness, and some plum.
