pivoveskotsku (201) - - SEP 12, 2012
Dark with a tan head, aroma is all chocolate and liquorice, the taste is more of the same with bitter chocolate and roast. This is a fantastic beer that only needs a little more of a punch for a more rounded mouth-feel in order to make it a truly brilliant beer. Drunk with bitter chocolate and was sensational.

Kauge (483) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 23, 2015
Bottle as a gift from Helsinki. BB 09 2016. Dark brown, near black in colour. Head’s beige with good retention and little lacing. Roastiness and chocolate on the nose is supplemented by late summer berries, Labrador tea and faint piquant hops, also dust and ash. Tastes of bitter chocolate with berries, loads of roast, and blackberry-like acidity or sourness. Body medium, carbonation way below average, mouthfeel soft. Damn, I’d love to have this with a basket full of blackberries, bilberries and cranberries, preferably sitting in a lounge chair in an Estonian bog minus the gnats. This beer evokes some nice memories. Not at all what I expected, not at all among the ballsier Imperial Stouts, but still very-very enjoyable!

A little bit on the light side for an imperial stout but I’m not complaining. Well done traditional stout with a strong malt and delicious coffee notes.

Erasmus_ro (1626) - Alabama, USA - NOV 28, 2014
Bottle, courtesy of TM, 27/11/14. Pours black with a decent, latte-colored head. Aroma is quite a lot of oat and roast, some coffee. Taste is somewhat roasty, quite a lot of dry coffee. Dry. Fairly light, no imperial stout-like qualities here really.

miquelcrush (1625) - Granollers, SPAIN - NOV 24, 2014
Molt bona cervesa, l’aroma és marcadament torrat, en gust també és torrat amb tons a cafè pero amb un sutil gust a galeta. Muy buena cerveza, el aroma es marcadamente tostado, en sabor también es tostado con toques a café pero con un sutil sabor a galleta.

BlackHaddock (4435) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2014
330ml bottle: BBD end of 09-2016. Poured into a Gordons thistle shaped glass at home 11-2014. Jet black with a full, lasting beige head, good lacing. The nose was malty with some chocolate, liquorice, vanilla, coffee notes all bundled together. The taste was semi-sweet initially, with the same flavours the aroma suggested, mid-sip it became a little tartier, with dark berry like hints coming through the sweetness. Full bodied and interesting.

doradobotella (143) - Madrid, SPAIN - OCT 22, 2014
Apariencia: De color negro y coronada por una capa de espuma marrón claro. Aroma: Sutil y complejo, puede recordar al de un café expreso con ciertos matices de tiramisú. Sabor: Intenso y equilibrado, de nuevo el café con notas a cacao y algún, muy sutil, matiz a bizcocho.

Pitch black, beige head, leaves some lacing. On the nose: chocolate, chocolate milk, licorice, cinnamon, fudge, caramel, vanilla, some coffee, bit fruity, nice. Taste is sweet milk chocolate, coffee, vanilla, red berries with a slight sourish tang, nice. Sweet aftertaste, full body.
