Moebbels (316) - FINLAND - SEP 13, 2014
A pitch black body covered by a fluffy, well-lasting brown head. Nose has rich notes of dark chokolate, coffee and liquorice. Taste is richly sweet with an insanely intense dark chokolate and liquorice flavor. The finish is long and smoothly bitter. Carbonation is minimal and the palate is rich and heavy. This is intense and rich, quite superb.

Marstonlad (419) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 13, 2014
On tap Ölhus Stockholm, Helsinki. A pitch black color with a little brownish head. The aroma features dark chocolate, licorice, rye bread and some dark fruitiness - wonderfull variety. Taste is fairly sweet, though drier, bitter notes push to the forefront in the finish. Flavours feature the usual chocolate and coffee with sweet bread, bun and dark, plummy fruitiness. Fairly malt-driven for an IS, not much hoppy bitterness in the finish. The palate is full, thick and velvety smooth. Usually I prefer hoppier imperial stouts but this one was so rich in taste despite not including hops that I have to like it. Great, varied beer.

FatPhil (9356) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 31, 2014
Keg (Ol Hus Stockholm, Helsinki)
Total coffee overload in the aroma, a little beany. Does have a pleasant stout roast too. Black, basalt, only brief head. Full sweet palate, not quite sticky as the carbonation is a bit high, almost fizzy. Taste is more the IS roast, but the coffee isn’t lost. Sweetish, but in balance with the roast and strength. 10.5% is quite well covered, but once the cold fizz has passed, there is a little warmth to it. More beaniness in the finish. Becomes more coffee-like in the late finish, say 30s after swallowing. A decent coffee stout, but killed by keg.

Ktwse (1996) - SWEDEN - JUL 21, 2014
Pours clear dark brown to black with low tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, vanilla, muscovado. Milk chocolatey, actually. Taste is deep burnt, wood chips and coffee, some barrel notes. Lingering coffee and dark chocolate finish. Rich, creamy body.
Earlier Rating: 6/8/2013 Total Score: 3.9
Pours black with low tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, smoked german sausage, melasses. Taste is balanced sweet with hints of vanilla and bourbon, no hints of the smoke at first but in the finish it starts to build up. Creamy full body with soft carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

berlinoise2go (614) - NORWAY - JUL 4, 2014
Bottle (75cl). Black/very dark brown colour. Half-inch beige head, reduces slowly to a thick bubbly layer with a narrow band of lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, lactose, coffee (also raw coffee beans), licorice, chocolate, alcohol. Full body, soft carbonation, oily mouthfeel. Taste is quite sweet initially, then a bitterness akin to raw licorice takes over, before a mild acidity appears in the finish, which is also quite boozy. Great overall balance. Dry, lingering licorice/coffee aftertaste.

Draught at Nya Tröls, Malmö
Black color with persistent beige head. The aroma shows too much coffee, burnt. Smooth and dry mouthfeel; good spicy sharp coffee flavor, although just a nit too ashy; strong bitterness.
Modern, very good.

Palme (3380) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 17, 2014
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 (5296) - 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.
