Ist nachtschwarz, intensiv und bleibt lange präsent. Fängt mit Kaffe an, ruhig, zäh, dann schokoladig. Es wird flüssiger. Es ist eindrucksvoll, überraschend. Schleicht sich nicht an, ist einfach da!

Vaiz (3987) - Den Haag, - JUN 29, 2012
Bottle @ WWT. Black pour, thick tan head. Aroma is sweaty, roasty, soy sauce and chocolate. Flavor is salty roasted malts, bitter and harsh. Quite invasive and too salt.

Erzengel (5827) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUL 4, 2015
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!

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!

kappldav123 (5542) - GERMANY - MAY 13, 2015
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.

MichaelAwesome (5920) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAR 30, 2015
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.

McTapps (5926) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - MAR 30, 2015
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.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein sehr dunkelbraunes fast schwarzes Bier mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch röstmalzig, leicht säuerlich, Schokolade, Kaffee. Geschmack nach geröstetem Kaffee, Schokolade, leicht säuerlich.

Le notti berlinesi non sono certo così scure e dense, ma accettiamo la metafora. In questa birra prevale il sapore tostato, con note di nocciole, mentre il sentore di caffé rimane distante e aleatorio. C’è da dire che il grado alcolico è ben mascherato.

If I could I would drink this everyday! Imperial stouts are hard to come by in Germany, but thankfully not everyone plays by the German brewing laws. I can’t say this is the best imperial I’ve ever had, but it is definately unique in its taste and richness. It doesn’t disappoint in quality. You almost need a knife and fork to drink it which for me is a good sign, a very good sign indeed!
