4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Brooklyn Brewery have a lot of excellent beers, but this one is awesome! This beer have a lot of flavours and aromas that are so intense that are difficult to understand all the complexity.
Well, with the aroma I found caramel, cereal, chocolate, nuts, coffee and toast.
The taste is intense, an explosion of coffee, chocolate and caramel came into the beginning, after the bitter of hops and alcohol came to balance the beer. Have a lot of little flavours like toast, roast, cereal, caramel and the principal is chocolate and coffee.
Excellent beer! Excellent Stout!

SB Lund, flaska. Mörk skumkrona. Tyisk is arom. Stor skillnad mot mer humlade kompisar. Mer kaffe än choklad dock finns bitterheten där. Utsökt is.

A regular IS beer. I don’t really think it tastes much of chocolate, rather coffee and porter wine. Overall a good beer for the price, but there are much better out there if you are willing to spend.

It tastes, smells and looks very nice. The only downside with this imperial stout is that it’s a bit to boozy for me.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml. bottle sampled @ ‘t Antwaerps Bierhuiske. A basic RIS offering that is very heavy on umami & liquorish flavours which is available on massive scale in the USA from what I have gathered. It is in the top 50 most rated beers on RB. It lacks any real chocolate for me but I do believe that chocolate isn’t an actual ingredient & the term here is more about the power of suggestion than anything else. Appearance is usual pitch black, pure black chocolate let us say for poetic sense, dark brown mocha head that quickly largely vanishes. Banished to only the sides of the glass. Nose is thick boozy, soy sauce, huge umami profile with lots of thick and bitter liquorish flavor’s,… Bitter umami, soy sauce, black liquorish, fish guts all heavy dominated the profile for me,… Medium bodied for the style. The longer I am vegan the more appear to develop a dislike for this kind of heavy umami & black liquorish profile in stouts. Unfortunately this just isn’t for me but that is strictly personal.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Chocolate stout com espuma fugaz, aroma de cacau e café torrado, gosto acompanha o aroma mas sem realçar tanto o café. Retrogosto com leve amargor. Cerveja boa para o preço mas nada demais...

2.1.2015. Pours black and quite thick, brown head. Quite intense roasted aroma of chocolate and coffee. Flavour is dryish bittery roasted, dark chocolate, coffee notes at the end. Very good value for price. Warming.

I’m not normally a fan of chocolate stouts but I liked this one quite a bit. Silky, dark, Carmel, heavy, a touch sour (which was my least favorite part) would buy again but not my fav

Köpt på systembolaget Dragarbrunn i Uppsala. Mycket bra och prisvärd imperial Stout.
