Strong coffee nose with chocolate with traces of vanilla. Pours black with a thick tan head. Cafe mocha, dark bitter chocolate with rich coffee, hints of vanilla and cream, smooth and silky. Wonderful beer!

Pours black, opaque with dark tan head. Lots of coffee and roasted malts in the very enticing nose. Very wonderful flavor. Smooth and drinkable with a little bite in the finish. A little sweet with a good bitter coffee punch.

Perhaps the most menacing looking beer I have ever seen. The pour yields an absolutely pitch black, impenetrable abyss of darkness. A dark brown head is as thick and creamy as any I’ve ever seen, appearing almost like a chocolate milkshake floater. A dense, solid sheet of lace stains the glass to the point where it takes a second rinse to clear it all away.

tkrjukoff (4082) - SWEDEN - MAR 8, 2014
Pours pitch black with a nice lacing brown head. Aroma is intense roasted coffee soy dark fruits. Flavor is just great velvety rich as aroma well bitter and aftertaste stays for a long time.

ChinoSkillzian (165) - The Hills, California, USA - JAN 14, 2014
Sampled at Woodshop 2011. Pours a deep black color with dark brown at the rim. Beautiful nose of rich cocoa infused coffee, creamer, vanilla custard, and Nutella. Creamy, dense palate, dripping with flavors of chocolate, rich coffee, Ferrero-Rocher, and medium vanilla. This was the best Imperial Stout I’d had up to that point in time.

Pitch black pour, dark brown head with reddish hues. Nose is huge gourmet coffee. Wow. That’s all I get initially--just a huge gorumet coffee bomb. Hard to tell it’s not just a cold cup of black coffee. As it warms the roasted malts come through. In the taste I get some dark chocolate and roasted malts, but mostly just huge kopi luwak coffee. Smooth big body but not quite as thick as regular Zhukov or AB Huna.
