This is a big bad mofo. Black, with a massive cocoa nose. Tastes big and boozy. Bold dark chocolate with Christmas pudding fruits, probably from the coffee. Smooth rich and warming. Good stuff.

Bottle I got somewhere from someone, maybe a store. Pours black, looks thick, tan head. Aroma is mix of chocolate, vanilla, roastiness. Taste is very bitter. Mix of roasted coffee and bitter chocolate. Something weird in the taste I am not a huge fan of, just ok I think.

Bottle thanks to Beechner224. Pours a dark black with a huge tan head. First smell is straight chocolate. Maybe hints of vanilla? Taste is thick. It coats my mouth. I can still taste it which isn’t a bad thing. As it warms up it just get more thick and chocolate. But overall very good. I’d drink it more.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle to snifter (split with DrSilverworm). Looks good; a mostly opaque very dark cola with mocha head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells good too; dark malt, chocolate, coffee, roast, and oak. Tastes like it smells, but more bitter from the roast. Not much vanilla on the tongue though. Solid on the palate. Good beer.

(Tasting session #4 with Franky) 33 cl. Batch 218. Best before 13-09-18. Pitch black with a large and solid creamy brown head. Aromas of deep dark crushed malts, strong coffee beans, cocoa nibs with hints of vanilla and smoke. Flavors of deep roasted malts, charcoal, bitter chocolate, burnt coffee, leather, wood and oak chips. Mouthfeel is quite vicious, full bodied with a soft carbonation. Strong lasting coffee bitterness finish with some cocoa and some smoke notes. Well crafted hardcore impy stout. Robust but very drinkable.

(Bottle). Full-bodied aroma of liquorice, coffee, hops and some smoke. Great taste that switches between several flavors such as fruit, coffee, licorice, roasted malt and smoke. Much licorice in the finish. Impressive beer!

Pours an opaque, very dark brown with a short, burnt amberish with espresso foam colored head. Light, smoldering campfire smoky nose. Smooth, full, slick texture. Just wonderful flavors of smoky olive flavor. Black scraped off the griddle. Some chocolate sweetness to balance the smokiness.
