50cL bottle from Hop City (Atlanta, GA). 8.99. Batch 0001, whenever the heck that was bottled. Served in a Cigar City snifter.

Pours a muddy dark brown with a half finger of dark cream head. Little patches of lace.

Smells of chocolate, woodsy vanilla and sweet dark fruit.

Tastes of smooth vanilla, chocolate, mildly bitter creamed coffee, stone fruit, molasses and sugar cane. Alcohol is near hidden in the sweet smooth blend of flavors.

Medium full body with mild but tingly carbonation. Long bittersweet vanilla coffee finish.

This is a great case for barrel conditioning. Smooth and sweet but not unnaturally so. Very easy drinking for near 10% abv. I would certainly enjoy drinking this again some time.

Thanks to hoppypocket for this one.

Poured from a 500ml. bottle (best before 02-04-2015) and drank at near room temp.

pours a very dark body with a fizzling head that dissipates after a few minutes and leaves no trace behind. Kind of disappointing. Aroma is nice though, rich bittersweet chocolate. Flavor has a dark roasted feel (vaguely reminiscent of coffee but different) with chocolate but the body is thin and ends up affecting the flavor. It's almost like i had poured some water into my stout, tastes and feels diluted. Disappointed by this one.

500 ml bottle, Batch IS0001. Served in a snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with an inch and a half tan head. Head retention and lacing are both good. The brew smells like roasted malt, dark fruit, molasses, oak, coffee and bittersweet chocolate. Taste is similar to the aroma, but with the addition of some vanilla and burnt/charred malt. Good balance between the different flavors, none of them seem dominant compared to the others. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's creamy and coating with moderate carbonation. I think it's a good overall brew, I'd like to try it again. $10.29 a bottle.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Dark mahogany body with a rich, creamy, sticky head. Rich chocolate, mocha, carob, and roasted grains with an underlying, subtle alcohol presence. Smooth, burnt grain taste combined with dark, bitter chocolate underpinning. Bitterness and alcohol warmth meld in the finish. Medium bodied, soft and effervescent on the tongue, slightly weak and watery.

An intense imperial stout, a little rough around the edges, but delivers on the key style points.

Pours with a two finger khaki head that fades quickly to thin layer, leaving a good lace. Black color, no highlights. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Chocolate, coffee and molasses nose and flavor is roasted chocolate, molasses. Caramel and coffee finish. High ABV is hidden. Not labeled a RIS but tastes like one. $8.99 for a 500ml bottle from Beverage Warehouse Winooski, Vt.

Comes out of the bottle a luscious opaque sable with a fairly thick and fine-bubbled light tan head that leaves some good lacing. Aroma has tones of roast coffee, molasses, caramel and burnt wood with a firm alcohol note. Mouth-filling flavor has a nice chord of molasses, quality coffee, semi-sweet chocolate, caramel and an alcohol nip and a honey-sweet hint. Firm-bodied, edgy texture has about an average amount of fizz. Definitely worth seeking if you like imperial stouts.

Nice looking label on this one. Sold!
Small printing on the bottom of label says this is oak aged.

Comes out of the bottle dark brown, but looks black in the glass. Slightly off white froth, maybe hints of rose. Lacing is nice

Rich yet subtle caramel in the nose, some cocoa and black plum, maybe pruned. Some faint vanilla.

This RIS is a bit thin for the style, but it has some good flavors. The balance of roasted malt, cocoa, caramel, vanilla and some dark fruits is quite nice. It's not a big-mamma-chicken and that's a good thing. Very drinkable for 9+%

A bit more than a introductory to the style. Probably one to drink at parties and not worry about friends stealing sips that you'd have to beat them

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a nice deep brown with a fluffy tan head. Soft, chocolatey aroma with minimal roast character, very Danish I reckon. Something perfumey in there too, maybe grapes. Flavor is a direct recreation of the smell. Chocolates and fruit with no bitterness, roast or alcohol. Not bad but lacks oomph. A little low on carbonation too I notice. A solid but unspectacular brew.
