djd07 (15106) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 28, 2016
On tap at Hunah Day. Pours black with medium beige head that lasts. The aroma is strong roasted malt, dark chocolate, vanilla. Thick body, chewy, roast, dark chocolate, boozy finish, very good.

decaturstevo (6257) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - NOV 27, 2015
Black pour with off white head. Aroma is huge dark fruitiness and a touch of chocolate. Flavor is super sweet raisins and dates. A sidebar of chocoffee. A very nice malty semi sweet bitter finish. Full bodied and smooth with light carbonation. very nice beer

Fritz123 (1535) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Draft at the Cajun Cafe. This is about as close as it gets to a perfect beer for me. Pours a very dark, cloudy elixir with a mocha head. Aroma is serious dark chocolate, cocoa nibs, slight cinnamon and anise, vanilla wafer, toffee. The taste is very smooth and complex with vanilla wafer, dark chocolate, caramel, toffee, roasted malts, and marshmellow. Full body, smooth velvet mouth.

rbrazell (1698) - Florida, USA - FEB 13, 2014
Draft at Blue Coop. Pitch black pour with a thick creamy tan head. Rich cocoa nibs, Hersey’s chocolate syrup, roasted malts, anise seed and vanilla beans in the aroma. Thick full bodied mouthfeel with the flavor following closely to the aroma. Damn good Imperial Stout.

3.8
Westmeister (2129) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 16, 2013
Draft. Had both batch (?) # 3 and #4 side by side at the anniversary. While the fresh batch won out (3.8 vs. 3.7), both were very nice. The newer batch was actually smoother, with more cocoa and almost a lactose feel to it. Bother showed depths of dark fruit, chocolate, super rich and roasted malts and some known booziness. A fine brew.

On tap at the source. Admittedly, I’m a huge fan of the Russian imperial stout style. But still, this is, without doubt, the best beer I’ve ever had in my life. Period.

4.1
yespr (45906) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 6, 2013
From tap at the brewpub. Pours pitch black with a small tan head. Aroma is dense dark malty, liqorice and bourbon. Thick malty, dark roasted, chocolate and thick and rich malty into the finish. Smooth and lingering dark chocolate, light vanilla and liqourice.

4.3
Travlr (25268) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Draft at the source. Black color, massive thick brown head with great retention and solid lacing, gorgeous. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, coffee. Taste is over brewed but not quite burnt espresso, bitter cocoa powder, vanilla beans. Very tasty.

4.3
Cybercat (5894) - Georgia, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Comes out of the tap a rich, oily sable with a buttery-tan head. I didn’t get much, but that is doubtless because of the pour, and it does leave plenty of lacing. Aroma has roast malt, coffee and molasses notes plus a hint of caramel. Flavor has a roast malt core and notes of caramel, molasses, toffee and coffee - and a noticeable alcohol nip. Firm, smooth texture has a good tingle to it, and leaves a smoky, oily, slightly sweet, slightly alcohol-biting finish. Can’t you hear them Siberian wolves a-howling?

unclemike (3150) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - JAN 11, 2013
my favorite beer of the night by far Pours a deep, dark brown with a small light tan head. Nose is a bit of chocolate, some light coffee or cafe con leche, bits of caramel, a little booze, and hops. Pronounced grapefruit and slight pine hops. Flavor is like hoppy chocolate with some coffee. Pronounced grapefruit and some pine hops as well. Great balance and no sense of the 10.7% abv. Medium in body, and very good overall
