Can at Vinifero. Rich body, roasted malt, dark chocolate, touch of nuts, bitter coffee finish. Solid imperial stout, maybe a tad too heavy if anything. Franckg (1816) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 4, 2015
Nez de chocolat noir, malt grillé et café. En bouche, forte présence de sucre venant du chocolat et de grains de café expresso. Bonne rondeur et un petit goût minéral se dégage. De l’anis se fait sentir en finale accompagné du houblon. Aucune trace d’alcool. L’amertume est goûteuse, houblonnée et amère, presque sèche.

Complete black. Brown head, quickly disappears. Chocolate and coffee aroma. Chocolate is stronger. Roasted. Sweet malt. Mollasses. chocolate. Full body and complex. Low carbonation. Pretty good overall. It’s not overwhelming, but 8%! Careful. Head is completely gone now. HopsandBolts (258) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2015

HKdIPA (841) - HONG KONG - DEC 22, 2014
Appearance: Pours an imperial jet black with two fingers of dense tan head with great retention. Leaves tons of thick lacing.
Alcohol, roasted malts, hint of licorice.
Chocolate, coffee, burnt malts, toasted nuts, molasses, dates.
Thick and creamy.
Overall: Wonderful stuff! Thick and creamy and it kind of feels like chocolate milk at 8.0% abv. The chocolate and coffee flavours are great and I think this one is a real bargin for the price.
Can from LCBO in Ottawa. Dark brown-black pour with minimal head. Aroma is toasty, mildly raisiny, chocolate and coffee. Taste isn't as big as I thought - quite drinkable though. Chocolate, some coffee, roasted malt. Bitterness is more burnt than hop, but both present. Not a bad imperial stout at all - more drinkable than most bjakk (814) - Skagafjordur, ICELAND - DEC 16, 2014
From my friend Melissa. Black with brown foam. sweet mildly burned malt in the aroma with a hint of alcohol. Sweet, candy, with sweet burned aftertaste. Highly drinkable gregorymconway (232) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 12, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 13, 2014 473 can from the LCBO. Black/brown body that pours in an oily fashion with a deep tan head that’s thin and dissipates quickly. Alcohol choclate and vanilla notes are present. Espresso as well. Oily texture, roasty overall. b3shine (9073) - Indiana, USA - SEP 20, 2014
473 mL can to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; a mostly opaque dull black with foamy beige head. Smells solid; dark malt, chocolate, roast, and toast. Tastes like it smells with a medium-bodied mouthfeel. Enjoyable. RxForHealth (180) - - SEP 1, 2014
473 mL can from the LCBO. Pours a dark black with no head. Roasted coffee and chocolate aromas. Heavily carbonated. Bitter roast on the tongue, like espresso. Long finish. An interesting stout but not one I'd order again.
