Ungstrup (34666) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 6, 2011
A pitch black beer with a thin dark brown head. The aroma has notes of dark chocolate, alcohol, roasted malt, and tobacco. The flavor is sweet with notes of alcohol and roasted malt, as well as lighter notes of brettanomyces and wood, leading to a dry, woody, and roasted finish.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2011
Handbottle 50 cl. Courtesy of TheCheeseMan. Pours pitch black with a brownish head. The nose is rich in hard roast, but also vanilla and and unusual coffee note AND a manure touch! Solid body, hard roast, coffee yes but not overly ashy, a little sweet vanilla accents and a slight tartness as can sometimes be found in very hard roasted beers. Some malt astringency. A lovely and unusual Imperial Stout - thanks Dan! 150311

Thanks mate, for this one! Oily opaque black beer, tiny chocolate coloured head. Very mild carbonation. Smooth palate, silky. Nose of coffee and suppressed fruit. Brief showing of a little cream before a big coffee hit. Deep rich coffee with a fruity tangy leading edge. The coffee just keeps going! The aftertaste, pure espresso. Nice balance of coffee and tangy fruits. A warming afterglow finishes things off nicely.

Leighton (18719) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2013
Growler at RBWG 2013. Pours oily brown with a faint, brown head. Huge, deep espresso aroma, some burnt malts. Big sweet flavor with dark, juicy berries, rich coffee, dark sugars. Full bodied with soft carbonation, faint warmth to finish, some syrupy dark sugars, more espresso, dark berries. Good stuff. Not a typical American impy stout.

A: The beer pours thick and black with a somewhat small mocha head. S: Enormous amounts of coffee on this one. Tons of roasted malt and chocolate with more and more coffee. A nice vanilla note as well as a touch of caramel and toffee. T: Vanilla and roasted malt make a brief appearance before being usurped by the incredibly powerful coffee flavors. Some creamy dark chocolate along with a touch of caramel sweetness. M: Medium to full bodied with a smooth feel on the tongue. O: Just awesome. Easily the best Cigar City beer I’ve had.
