neongolden (1231) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 22, 2015
(On tap at VilleValla Pub, Linköping, Mar 21 2015) Pours pitch black with basically no head. Aroma has lots of roast coffee, liquorice, clean sugary sweet dark malt, a bit of chocolate. On the palate, semisweet chocolate, brown sugar, brewed coffee, moderate roast malt/coffee bean bitterness, liquorice. Light sweetness fades away leaving a nicely bitter balanced finish, coffee beans, roast malt, a hint of hops, no alcohol heat. Medium-full bodied with light carb. A nicely balanced coffee stout. Not groundbreaking but quite pleasant to drink.

Moebbels (717) - 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 (760) - 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 (13867) - 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 (4052) - Greater London, ENGLAND - 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 (688) - 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.
