Bottle. Pours super-dark black color with thin dark brown head. Aroma is wood, rust, chocolate plus a bit of hops. Taste is chocolate, wood, roast, hops, flowers (roses). No sign of sweetness, quite bitter. Very dry aftertaste. Texture is very oily, consistency is quite thick. Carbonation is low. Very special beer, but probably not for everyone. Truly deserves the "imperial" in its name.

Coffee, chocolate in aroma. Almost pitch black colour, tan head. Taste is medium dry, cocoa and coffee predomiante, bit oily texture. Overall solid, easy drinking RIS. On tap at Zly Casy, Praha.

Aroma of tar and coffee - my drinking mate, a ballerina, really wasn’t digging this style but she tried it anyways and agreed - no coordination can be expected after a glass of this. Flavour is nice heavy barley, with coffee and charcoal notes. It’s a bash over the head with heavy flavours and hop oils. A great imperial stout.

sebletitje (8789) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 27, 2015
33cl swing-top bottle courest of and shared with Tderoeck. Brune foncée, pas de col. Arôme est malté chocolaté, pâle et caramel, note fruité noire avec un léger rétro adouci. Palais est malté, chocolaté, caramel gardant une inspiration purement allemande et rappelant le mélanoďde donnant un fini surfait et doux. J’ai du mal ŕ y trouver une inspiration stout alors que le tout penche vraiment plus sur l’allemand.

Thanks to tderoeck! 330 ml. swing-top bottle sampled. Black, little mocha. Nose is heavy on chicory coffee, licorice, herbal, bitter, leaves,… Taste is bitter herbal, chicory coffee, roast, herbal, boozy soy sauce & ashes. Very roasted & grainy body. Decent for its kind but overall still one of those bitter, herbal, chicory coffee tasting RIS’s.

jawlo (369) - Katowice, POLAND - JUL 25, 2015
Aromat: kawa, czekolada, paloność, wiśnie. Wygląd: barwa czarna, nieprzejrzysta, piana świetna, brązowa i obfita. Smak: słodycz w postaci kawy, paloności, lekka kwaskowość, średnia palona goryczka. Odczucie w ustach: trochę ciała jest, ale nie idzie to w kierunku likierowatości, niskie nasycenie. Ogólne wrażenie: dobre piwo, aromatyczne, w smaku mogłoby jednak dziać się więcej, wychodzi również delikatnie alkohol. Generalnie piwo przypomina bardziej Porter Bałtyckiego, mniej słodkie niż RIS i bez likierowej tekstury , w aromacie występują również charakterystyczne dla porter wiśnie.
