Many thanks to McTapps! The beer starts deep and dark. Viscous, hints of plums, slightly sourish. Very nice with a dry and malty body. Hints of burned bread, moderate bitterness, dark cherries. Intense, viscous. Coffee, Roasted dark chocolate but still a bit rough. Probably due to the quite dry body. Intense and long dark roasted chocolate aftertaste. Nice!

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Maker: Brew Baker, Berlin, Germany ***
Beer: Berliner Nacht (bottled, 330ml) ***
Style: Imperial Stout ***
ALC.VOL.: 9.0% ***
"Pitch-black, intense and lasting. Starts out with coffee notes, slowly, then switches to chocoloate. Impressive, surprising. It won’t creep on you from behind, it’s just there." [brewery note, my translation] ***
Colour: Pitch-black, indeed. Huge, fluffy, lasting brown head. ***
Nose: Lots of dark chocolate and vanillin, mild coffee. ***
Texture: Full-bodied, a bit oily, moderate carbonation (thus, not extremely oily). ***
Taste: Dark chocolate and coffee beans together at the outset, nice coffee bitterness complementing the chocolate sweet note. Espresso bitterness even stronger towards the middle, with mildly sweetish cocoa in the background. Finish still much the same mix, slightly sour now. Aftertaste coffee, very much dominated by roasted malts. Wee sweetness remains. ***
Impressions: Absolutely excellent Imperial Stout that manages to hide its 9% ABV behind strong and interesting malt flavours. A must for lovers of this style!

Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass deep black, huge brownish head. Intense malty aroma. Starts strong-malty, roasty, some notes of liquorice, wood. Finish milder, less intense malty and almost a bit boring. Misses the special thing. Okay.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nettes Stout mit einer ebenso netten Trinkbarkeit. Kräftig und dunkel mit einer gewissen Röstung, Kaffee und einer leichten Schärfe zum Ende hin. Absolut in Ordnung ohne wirkliche Raketenmomente.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from a trade. The beer has got a deep black colour with a low head and medium body. Aroma of intense malt and bread. Taste of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, dark bread and woods. Slightly unbalanced, expected it better. Drinkable nevertheless.
