33cl bottle, shared @ William K. Batch #102, bottled on 03-05-13. 15,2. Pitch black, almost no head. Soy sauce, dark bread in aroma. Flavor has soya, burnt malt, dark chocolate, sweetness. Sticky. Warming, full bodied. Very heavy for sure. At the moment not that enjoyable. Not what I expected.

spacecube (760) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2014
330ml bottle, pours back with a small head. This is the 15.2% version. Chocolate toffee stickiness with alcoholic port infusion. Sugary with juicy fruit flavours making their way through. Hazelnut and vanilla notes. Despite all the favours an the evident high Abv, the finish is short and balanced. Low carbonation and a slick palate. Very moreish and easy to drink for the Abv. Excellent strong stout.

sputnikus (96) - Brno, CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 19, 2013
Bottle, 15.2% batch. Pours pitch black liquid with small crema-like head. Aroma is full of strong coffee, roasted malt, licorice and alcohol. Taste is starts chocolate sweet, goes little alcoholic with salt accent, ends berry sweet. Beer has full body with velvety texture, softly carbonated. Long, warm caramel and alcohol finish. One of the most complex beer I’ve ever tasted, perfectly balanced, yet unusual, taste.

sokinsilihok (4) - - DEC 14, 2013 does not count
the absolutely most complex taste ever tasted, Full body, complex imperial stout aroma and taste. the 15% abv was enough to make you enjoy as a really good drink and not just simply "one more beer"
