0.75l bottle shared with my girlfriend. Well you expect a imp stout to be as good as black when it hits the glass, and this one is not way to far off being just that. It has a nice big and bubbly light brown gar-beige head on top. Loaded with coffee on the nose. Softly roasted with brown sugar, lots of milky sweet chocolate and a soft salty hint in the back. Smells really nice. It has a strong and really burned coffee flavor initially. Super punchy dark espresso coffee with dark cardboard, licorice and a really strong coffee bitterness as well. It has this thick and oily feeling in the mouth a deep it’s about average on the carbonation. Makes my mouth feel dark almost black a long while after the swallow. Really flavorful and tasty. 21.02.2014

gunnar (4875) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAR 15, 2014
Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Kvadrat. Pours pitch black with a big creamy tanned head. Aroma of hard roasted malts, coffee and resiny hops. Thick oily soy mouthfeel. Taste is hard roasted malts, light sweet, more coffee, some liquorice and tarish notes towards the light dry finish. Nice.

On tap at Crowbar. Black with a lacing beige head. Acidic coffee fills the nose and the mouth, good roast. Hints of chocolate as well. Very good and the coffee is exquisite.

Thought the coffee was way too overpowering, lacked finesse sad to say. As such a mediocre grade. On (guest)-tap @ Tröls in Malmö.

Beerheart65 (896) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 15, 2014
Black with light brown thin creamy and sticky head with bit lacing. Medium strong aroma has ash, light coffee, slightly roasted malt. Good coffee flavor, dry and bitterish roast, full body and soft feel, lots taste for a long finish, also sweet licorice notes as warms. Looks and smells nice are flavors are nuanced and pure, balanced enjoyment!

On tap from Stone’s. A: Dark black found into very deep brown with strong white head. S: Now that *literally* smells like coffee. Some acidity. T: Starts sweet, some dark chocolate, coffee, goes into roast bitterness. Lots of coffee. M: Not too heavy, medium body, smooth. O: Overwhelmingly coffee Stout, I prefer more natural coffee taste to coffee dumped into beer.
