22oz bottle shared by GT2: pours an oily opaque with a clingy-lacing dark beige head. Has a rich sweet dark caramel malty nose with some dark fruity Noyes. Starts with good fullness and sweet dark chocolate with some dark fruits before a drier smoky and roasted finish. True to style, enjoyable and complex.
Bottle at WTF 3. Pours a dark brown with medium tan head that lasts. The aroma is strong roast, chocolate, booze. Medium body, sweet roast, dark chocolate, boozy finish, very good. sonnycheeba (6126) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 29, 2016

22oz bottle (from 2012) in a tulip. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, some chocolate and coffee, some light sweet notes, and some dough. Flavor the same with a nice blend of everything you want from dark malts. Smoother texture. A solid beer. esp0r (2922) - NORWAY - DEC 23, 2015

Bottle. All black body with a tiny brown head. Aroma is a licorice bomb with roasted malt and ash. Taste is sweet and roasty, dark, with bitter chocolate and tobacco. Mild warm alcoholic finish. A full bodied tasty porter.

Bottle... Pours thick, murky and black with a small, brown head. The olfactory standouts here are fudge, blackstrap molasses and dried plum. Full-bodied and super velvety with modest carbonation. The flavor is a bold swirl of burnt caramel, charcoal, pouch tobacco and dried plum. Bittersweet, scorched, acrid finish. Bottle courtesy of ctipping!

65cl bottle served in a snifter. Pours pitch black with a dark tan head which lasts a while. Aroma is powerful burnt malt and dark fruits. Taste is dark chocolate, vanilla and espresso coffee with quite a harsh bitterness and dryness. As it warms up the dark chocolate melds into a milk chocolate creaminess with the vanilla becoming more pronounced. Mouthfeel is medium and overall this is one of the finest imperial stouts I have tried and certainly one that I will buy again. Bottled in 2012. sebletitje (10094) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 7, 2015
Bomber share @ SHAPE NFL Fantasy Draft. Thanks Steven.
Brune foncée, col crémeux café au lait et doré au verre.
Arôme offre un bouquet épais au niveau malté, retrouve as mal de chocolat, le tout gardant un léger rétro fruité noir/rouge.
Palais est maté également assez épais, caramel dont les 10% se font bien sentir. Le tout reste sec, petite touche rappelant le tourbé et une fin de bouche réchauffante. Pas grand chose en terme houblonné amertume mais un côté fruité noir indique que l’on est bien dans un style baltique. Reste néanmoins assez basique dans son style avec un penchant fort axé sur les malts.
