stumpyiliz (217) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Solid jet black pour. Amazing dark tan head. When cold the tartness comes out from the Belgian yeast. As the beer warms the complexity of character really comes out. The sweetness mellows and thealt really comes through. The mix of the yeast and malt delivers delicious notes of dark toffee, chocolate and anise in a mesium to thick mouthfeel. Finish is crisp and dried figs, prunes, raisins linger on the palate.

gripweed57 (1458) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - FEB 18, 2017
12 ounce bottle. Opaque black color. Small creamy tan head. Big roasted malt nose is redolent of molasses and dark dried fruit. Flavor follows nose with notes of prunes, chocolate and treacle. Intense and rich, with a viscous mouthfeel. Sip this slowly to reveal the luscious, complex layers. Big and bold is an understatement. At just under 12% ABV, be careful out there.

__Rb81 (757) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 14, 2017
Bottle at home (bottled 03/06/15). Pours dark with a tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate, spicy yeasty, alcohol, dark fruits, liquorice, roasted malts, sweetness towards the end. Taste is over moderate bitter, light to moderate sweet, creamy mouthfeel, light carbonation, long roasted bitter aftertaste, warming alcohol. Nice.

Bebum (858) - Massachusetts, USA - FEB 5, 2017
Opaque, dark brown color, ephemeral, micro-bubble brown head. Full body, very flavorful, smooth texture, rich, very hot but not very carbonated mouthfeel, long aftertaste with tasty finish. Moderately bitter, off-dry, tart. Intense dark roast coffee, tar, vanilla essence, coke. Very good but not the best. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Evolutionary (490) - Ohio, USA - JAN 21, 2017
Wow. This is tasty. Bottle from andersons. Would do again in no doubt, but more of a beer at a time kind of beer. Nose is complex with caramel, cereal, roasty, floral, dough, smoke, and fruit. Body largely follows. Hides the % well after the first sip. The belgian influence on an imperial stout is a great idea and one I didnt expect. Only get hints here and there, but wow, its good.

ffaoe (625) - Moorestown, New Jersey, USA - JAN 16, 2017
roasty, chocolately aromas. pitch black in color with really nice long lasting brown head. taste is primarily of chocolate, notes of coffee, roasted barley, very faint booziness.

Black with no head. chocolate, nuts, a little raisin, roasted espresso. some alcohol warming. a good sipping brew.

chinchill (4634) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 11, 2016
12 oz bottle with a bottling date of 30 April 2015 and a BB date of 30 April 2017 in a Belgian snifter on 11 Dec. 2016. Pours, thick, essentially black, opaque, and with minimal signs of carbonation. Virtually no head or lacing. The aroma seems a bit off, even for the Belgian style: its quite mossy and earthy, with hints of fresh cut wood and black licorice. This characterization only partially carries over to the far more appealing flavor. Some molasses, burnt grain notes and light spicing. Overall: interesting and more than drinkable, but still disappointing, especially from Weyerbacher.

Scouser (348) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2016
Pours a dark, almost black, brown. No head or lacing so it lost some points. Nice aroma of treacle, raisins, caramel. Tastes of treacle, raisins with hints of licorice, a little booze. A nice winter beer.
