#32 Review by Chopz from Cantley, Canada
Score: 3.8 | Aroma 9 | Appearance 8 | Mouthfeel 7 | Flavor 7 | Overall 7 |
Pours a dark brown colour with a big creamy-bubbly light-mocha coloured head, everlasting, leaving creamy lacing. Big dark fruit aromas with plums and spices, covering the roasted malts. And eventually, hints of vanilla softening things. This keeps on changing and some grass shows in the nose. The taste definitely is where the hops appears stronger. Even at the start, fading to show some coffee in the finish. Kind of a sharp, bitter entree. A pretty hoppy tasting Imperial Stout that goes down nicely... if this is your thing. The head is stunning for a bottled brew.

I don't like to give bad reviews because everyone has different tastes and likes. I drank only about 4-5 ounces of this and then poured the rest of the bottle out. Terrible balance of hops and very bitter.

#30 Review by PaleAleRider from Winchester, Ontario, Canada
Score: 4.1 | Aroma 8 | Appearance 8 | Mouthfeel 8 | Flavor 9 | Overall 8 |
Pours a thick frothy brownish head and has a dark brown appearance, almost pitch black. Lacing is not too bad. Aromas of roasted malts, coffee, vanilla. Flavours are mainly barley malts, coffee, roasted malt, notes of toffee, molasses and nuts with subtle hints of raisins and vanilla in the finish. Some spices are apparent after a while as well as earthy hops. Alcohol is fairly noticeable but not offensive at all. Slick, oily and smooth mouthfeel. Fairly bitter. Goes down nicely for 10%abv.

The beer pours a solid black colour with a thick creamy light brown head that lasts. The aroma is roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate, and hops. Hoppiest Impy Stout I've had in a while. The mouthfeel is full bodied with average carbonation. The flavour is roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, and vanilla. An excellent beer!

Score: 4.2 | Aroma 8 | Appearance 9 | Mouthfeel 8 | Flavor 9 | Overall 8 |
A very dark blackness in color with a big tan head rising above. There was good hang time on the head. It settles into a moderate ringlet. The profile intense in both nose and in tasting is roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. Some lighter vanilla? Full bodied and slick.

2011 version. Can see why it’s called BIG BEER. Aroma begs you to drink. Bold flavour of roasted malt, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, vanilla, coffee, dark fruit, alcohol warmth, excellent flavour. Thick full body, creamy and smooth . Shame about the appearance. No head or lace. Wish you could buy this in ice cream form.

#26 Review by kinger from North Canton, oHIo, United States
Score: 4.3 | Aroma 8 | Appearance 8 | Mouthfeel 9 | Flavor 9 | Overall 9 |
Classic Imperial Stout, well made all around. Slow dark pour with a filmy brown head and spotty lacing. Upfront roast and loads of creamy chocolate and coffee. Balancing bitterness, but not hop aroma or flavor to speak of. Silky smooth, rich full body. Undeniably grand and very old school...wonderful.

#24 Review by Jabah from Winter Park, FL, United States
Score: 4.3 | Aroma 9 | Appearance 8 | Mouthfeel 8 | Flavor 9 | Overall 9 |
I was sampling a few different beers during a fantasy football draft, so I could be off by a few points here or my recall isn't 100%. For the price, I may get this again to get a 2nd opinion. It wasn't super mud thick, nor midnight black in appearance...but pretty heavy overall and had a dark brown appearance/frothy coffee colored head. Not quite a perfect balance in the flavor, slightly burnt and roasty aftertaste. Good beer though....will drink slower next time and maybe not share so I have the entire 22 oz. to get a better review.

Black- medium foam .. . roast, coffee with splenda, maduro cigar paper in the mouth .. very smooth, but seems to get lost in middle stout land .. . happy to have tried it! .. . Xylophone is spelled with an X, that's wrong, xylophone's zzzz, X? I don't fuckin' see it. It should be a Z up front, next time you have to spell xylophone, use a Z. When someone says, "Hey that's wrong," say, "No it ain't. If you think that's wrong, you need to get your head Z-rayed." It's like X wasn't given enough to do, so they had to promise it more. Okay, you don't start a lot of words, but we'll give you a co-starring role in tic-tac-toe. And you will be acquainted with hugs and kisses. And you will mark the spot. And you will make writing Christmas easier. And incidentally, you will start xylophone. Are you happy, you fuckin' X?!
