beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - NOV 7, 2004
Pours perfect for an imperial stout, ebony black with a tall light brown head. Very roasty aroma, just a beast of roastiness, hint of very dark chocolate, rich coffee, slight smokey quality, and some fig/raisin notes. Taste is smooth as butter, going down with ease, just amazingly balanced with a nice trailing coffee bitterness. Taste starts with a nice sweetness, hints of slightly bitter bakers chocolate, then a big rush of coffee and clean bitterness to balance. Slight salty/soysauce hint near the finish thats really quite pleasant in thsi brew. Very smooth and big beer with some mystical owl staring at you the whole time you drink.

This is a good one! Strong taste, lasting flavor that remains on the tongue. No hint of bitterness. The high alcohol content leaves a pleasant warm feeling.

served up on tap by a sandy blond cutie barmaid at Victory Brewing Co!! What a great welcome back to the East Coast. Blackish/dark ruby brownish clear color, thin dark tan head. coffee and roasted malt nose, dry roasted malt flavor balanced with dark fruits, fresh tobacco, and hop bitterness. some folks dont believe the hype, but I score this high because its a very pleasant Imp Stout. save a spot for me at the bar!

UPDATED: JAN 21, 2007 Aromas of roasted malt, a Belgian yeast quality, and dried fruit. Black with a small head. leave a lace. Flavor is also complex. Dried fruit, coffee, soy sauce, tobacco, and sweet malt. A thick and heavy beer. Simple bitter finish.

UPDATED: NOV 9, 2006 This is an excellent stout. Kinda surprised it is a 100 percentile though. Bitter... what you would expect. Good. Yay. Edit 11/09/06 - This is really a knockout beer. Just really, really great.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 30, 2004
Nov. 2003 Bottle, sampled 10/29/04. Very dark brown/black and clear body. Average sized creamy light-brown head that lasts. Roasted/burnt cascadey hop aroma with some chocolate. Nothing exceptional to pick out in the taste, but it just a great concoction of hops and roasted malts. Plus, I drank it kind of fast. Nice mouthfeel... slightly oily.

Mads Langtved (2244) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2004
Good stout. Quite hoppy and malty. Burned finish. It is a great beer, because of the strong bitterness, compared to other examples of this style. Pretty dry and DARK!! Fantastic aroma.

Im rating a 2000 Vintage of this brew and have to say its fantastic. This Stout gets much better as it sits. Chocolate, coffee, and roasted malt flavors. Finishes smooth and clean.

UPDATED: JUN 20, 2005 Despite the raves about this brew I found it to be somewhat less than the hype. Dont get me wrong, nice aroma, good looking beer. But the flavor (malt, molasses, and espresso...which sounds great) did not do it for me?? OK. Had this again the other night and Ive adjust my rating somewhat. I still contend that the hype on this beer is a bit much but Ill admit that my first rating was a bit low. Let me also say that Id like to note some charcole and lite fruit (apricot?) in the taste as well.

ANOTHER retaste. 2004 bottle. Much better aroma this time with dark chocolate, spicey/citrus hops. I increased the aroma rating. Still think the flavor rating I gave is accurate, though I noted more dark chocolate and citrus/pine hops this time.
