UPDATED: NOV 9, 2013 Tap @ CBC2013, small sample. Dark color, short head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee and chocolat, but then with extra figs, mint or coconut. Bit too sweet in taste besides the medium bitterness. Cool to see itís fermented with a lager yeast. 3.7
Bottle @ Beer Temple, large sample. Very creamy oatmeal, coffee, dark chocolate, hint of molasses. Smooth and creamy texture. Clean bitterness and yeast profile. Well balanced brew. Upping the score a bit to 4.0 mcberko (17178) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 7, 2013
On tap at CBC, pours black with a small brown head. Aroma of loads of chocolate, a little roast and some hops. Flavour brings out loads of dark chocolate, a significant hoppiness, and roasted malt. Supremely complex and well-rounded. Quite hoppy for an impie stout. Delicious stuff.

Flaske delt med Odd Gunnar og Johnne pŚ Cafe Viking, mai-13: denne gjorde susen! Masser av god og overbevisende portersmak. Sśrdeles balansert og en fryd for ganen. Kompleks, samksrik sŚ det holder og fremdeles glir den friksjonsfritt over ganen. Nydelig. DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 15, 2013
Growler shared by Caterwaul. Pitch black color. Dark brown head, with a hue of brick to it. Great lace. Nice big roasty malt, big dark chocolate, some bitter roasted coffee. Light dark fruit. Big bitter taste, some sweetness. Really big body, chewy, light carbonation. Kind of dry in the finish. Light sweet bite to it. Body is not as chewy or thick as most imperial stouts, carbonation is a bit strange, too... Drinks like a very full flavored baltic porer. The flavor is huge, I donít really care that the texture doesnít feel typical stout. Very interesting beer. Odd, but I canít help but dig it dimenhetfield (2486) - , Florida, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Bomber shared with friends at Sybarite Pig. Super dark pour with a soft foamy head. Dark chocolate aroma mixed with a tiny bit of rolled oats. Really delicious and easy to drink.
