worldbeertaste (1598) - AUSTRIA - OCT 20, 2012
Silky black with no tint with a dark brown quick disappearing head. Like a black hole it absorbed everything. Smells of deep heavy roasted malt, chocolate, smoke, and coffee with wood and clear alcohol. May need to be aged to get the alcohol smell and taste out. Full oily body. Smooth as velvet. Perfect body. Very sweet taste of chocolate and malt with bitter dark and roasted malt with a woody almost spicy dry finish.

Lilja (1530) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 21, 2012
Flaska 872 av 3300. En kraftig och välbalanserad Imperial Stout. Massor av smak av choklad och romrussin. Portvinskänsla med chillihetta och kaffenyanser.

Vignale (1978) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 21, 2012
En flaska som snart hunnit bli tre år. Massor av romrussin i doften plus de vanliga IS-dofterna av kaffe och choklad. Munkänslan är len med något lite vasst som gradvis växer till en viss chilihetta. Otroligt bra balans, maffiga smaker av romrussin, cherry, kaffe och chili. Fantastiskt god!

rarbring (1241) - Linköping, SWEDEN - SEP 12, 2012
Aroma: The smell is powerful, cured meat, some smoke, licorice and soy sauce. Rather black!
Appearance: A black/brown brew, really no head, some faint tan bubbles, no lacing of course, surprisingly small curtains.
Taste: The taste starts wit brown sugar and sweet licorice, fried sugar, cold coffee and soy sauce with a hint of wasabi, sherry and lemon zest.
Palate: No carbonation, very soft and oily, a coarse quick dry finish.
Overall: A spicy sweet digestive, enjoy responsibly!
Note: Bottle at De Klomp BMD.. Reviewed 2011-09-20.

Bottled on 1.11.10, number 974 of 3300. Dark beer out of the bottle with only the smallest of bubbles. Big bitter coffee nose. Lots of coffee flavors in this beer sweet molassess and a big warming heat. The 15% is well hidden. Really good coffee stout.

Mora2000 (5527) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 20, 2012
Thanks to crusianbeer for bringing this beer back from the UK. The beer pours an inky black color with a tan head. The aroma has a lot of roasted malt, as well as some something that resembles soy sauce. The flavor is more complex. I get a lot of chocolate and some light soy, as well as some oak, vanilla and maple. There is also some alcohol. Thick mouthfeel and low carbonation.

Foffern (1150) - Bodø, NORWAY - MAY 5, 2012
Bottle shared with (and great courtasy of) the fantastic Bergen tasting crew with such stars as ClubGonzo, Inbreak and Palme, and the mighty StoreMy. Have a deep reddish brown to black colour with a light brown head. The aroma feels like concentrated dried fruit with plum, leather, wood, alcohol, rubber, and chillies. In the flavour I recognize dried fruit and leather, but also a coffee mocha touch with dark chocolate, chocolate truffles, a little roast, and chili in the end. The beer has a medium bitterness and feels oily in the mouth. A beautiful beer with good taste, and could have easily been served as a dessert in itself.
