“On tap at Hoppin Frog. Black with small light brown head. Dry dark chocolate, medium body, low carbonation, and some small-bubble lacing. Taste dark malt, whisky, vanilla, chocolate, coffee, and espresso. Better than regular DORIS.” -- by weihenweizen

“Pours a beatiful luscious black with a nice medium mocha head. Aroma is ripe molasses, brandys with touches of boozy cognac. Flavor is irish coffee with some semi dark chocolate and an espresso bitter aftertaste. Full palate, silky mouthfeel, a bit boozy. Nice coffee-cacao imperial stout, a tad on the sweet side though.” -- by Fukito

WYGLĄD: Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzyste. Piana drobna, wysoka, krótka.
AROMAT: Średnio intensywny. Dżem porzeczkowy, karmel, kawa, żywica, delikatna wanilia, owsianka, nuty beczkowe oraz likierowe.
SMAK: W pierwszej chwili słodki i zalepiający niczym konfitura porzeczkowa. Jednak po chwili do głosu dochodzi kawa, a ta towarzyszy nam już do samego końca.
OGÓLNIE: Gęste, oleiste. Alkohol jak najbardziej obecny, ale stanowi on niezbędne uzupełnienie, gdyż potęguje on wszelkie doznania zarówno w smaku, jak i aromacie. Rasowy-RIS! Aromat jest niesłychanie bogaty, choć nie tak intensywny.” -- by KW92

“Way old backlog from Mikkeller and Friends. Couldn’t remember I had this one bit... oh well. Pours a hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is very hoppy, lemon zest, lime, sweet citrus, malty sweetness. Taste is fruity, hoppy, lemony, citrus, some tropical fruits and some malty sweetness in the back. ” -- by Klimaet

“Bottle from Spar supermarket, Rochefort, Belgium. This is a very dark brown, hazy beer that pours with a huge rocky head of white foam. It has a very rich plum, currant, burnt toffee and spicy star anise flavour, a luxurious warming mouthfeel followed by boozy sherry, oak and vanilla on the finish. One of the best beers I have ever tasted!” -- by zacgillbanks

“I was happy to get my hands on this. Not every day I get to rate a 100/100 beer. Expensive for sure ($15-16 for a 12.7 oz. bottle) so it better be worth it. Aroma is heavy oak barrel, prune and other dark fruit, leather and plenty of booze. Appearance is a 5 right out of the gate. Pitch black, thick and virtually free of any foam. The tiny amount of foam the beer does have is a light tan color. It really does look like old motor oil. Tastes almost sour, raisin like at first, but then oak, roast, milk chocolate and coffee flavors take over, leaving a warming finish. Let this beer warm up a bit as it brings out the oak flavors even more.” -- by coachd

“Deep brown nearly black body. Medium brownish head. Crazy complex aroma. Dried plum, chocolate, spices, licorice, light vanilla and coffee notes. Flavours as complex. Sweet candy sugar, dried plums, spices, vanilla, licorice, chocolate... Probably more... Long warm .sweet dried fruits finish. Oily body, medium carbo. Splendid beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone” -- by Flanfl

“0,5 l bottle. Pitch dark pour with good amounts of light brown foam. Intensive aroma of chocolate, caramel and some coffee. Taste is very smooth. It leaves a nice, balanced chocolatey feeling with some bitterness kicking in at the end. Also a little dry finish. You can sense the alcohol, but it doesn?t affect the overall experience at all. A very nice imperial stout.” -- by Justin666

“750, corked and baled. For as obsessed as many of us have been with this beer over the last year or two, it’s completely mystifying to me how I’ve not rated it before now. Who knows how many we have opened? Pours a murky and very deep rubied garnet with a fizzy and sudsy layer of off-white head with light pink accents. The head sticks around for a while, leaving tiny dots of lace. Big tangy nose, lots of cranberries, a bit of oak, plenty of balsamicy tang balanced against the fruits. Creamy medium body with lively carb. The sharpness and heavy tartness of the nose balances far back for the mid-palate, leaving a pleasantly balanced and layered tartness that’s very approachable, consumable, and refreshing. Crisp fruity lemonade finish.” -- by after4ever
