Draft at Brasserie 4:20 in Rome. Wonderful colour, jet black with big beige creamy head which retains it’s lace until the end. Fabulous aroma of vanilla, coffee and marinated dark fruits. The mouthfeel is thick, coating the mouth. The flavour is massive alcohol but beautifully restrained by the mass of flavours ranging from tobacco to more vanilla. The wonderful host at Brasserie 4:20, Alex, gave me a bottle to take home which i am drinking now - pretty much the same as the draft, just superb. By far and away the best European imperial stout.

JanLaursen (3122) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 21, 2014
Flaske, 33 cl. Sort, lidt flad at se på, med et lavt, men stabilt beige skum. Har tidligere fået nogle af de mange versioneringer af denne klassiker, men er først nu nået til originalen. Sødlig ristet næse. Chokolade, kakaopulver, blomme, Bassets lakrids-konfekt. Fyldig, cremet, fed, ristet bitter, saltet. Go nat øl.

25cl glass at " de 3 dorstige herten" in Utrecht. Deep dark colour. Hazy white head. First impression : coffee! Chocolate, caramel. Light bubble. Heavenly aftertaste!

darrennelson12 (414) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 20, 2014
In bottle; pours very dark with a thin light brown head. Aroma is almost tart with coffee/smokey notes ... not sure I like the aroma on this one at all. Taste is roasty and malty, quite easy drinking ... just struggling getting past the aroma

ericdevin (790) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - SEP 17, 2014
Draft at The Bier Stein, Eugene. Pours an opaque brown/black, very little head. Aroma deep and roasty, baking chocolate, marshmallow. Body arch and sharp, finish a sticky-sweet and surprisingly bitter roast/resin affair. Nice, but a bottle probably does this better justice.

cagou007 (326) - FRANCE - AUG 28, 2014
Pours a deep brown color with a very thin brown head. Nose is roasty and cocoa. Mouthfeel is great, oily and lightly carbonated. Aromas are roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate and dark fruits, with a hint of alcohol. Medium finish on bitterness, with vinous and roasty notes. Excellent re-visited imperial stout! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

NordicV (1162) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - AUG 27, 2014
I stort sett svart öl med brunt skum. Doft av rostad malt, kaffe och antydan av mörk choklad. I smaken tillkommer lite ek, aska och lakrits. Fyllig med lätt alkoholsötma som balanserar den rostade beskan.

atrox (159) - Kraków, POLAND - AUG 24, 2014
Dark brown colour with nice beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, plums and nice alcohol. Taste is sweet on begining but finish is sour with some bitterness. Great balanced.

Barwa: ciemna, z rubinowymi refleksami, dosyć gęsta i oleista. Piana beżowa, drobno pęcherzykowa, niewielka i dość szybko opadająca. Aromat: melanoidyny, suszone owoce (śliwki, wiśnie, może jabłka), czekolada, kawa oraz wyraźna nuta alkoholowa. Smak: zdecydowanie pełny i początkowo słodki. Następnie bardziej wytrawna kontra ciemnych i palonych słodów wraz ze zdecydowaną goryczką. Mamy czekoladę gorzką, kawę i spieczone ciasto oraz wyraźnie alkoholową, przyjemnie rozgrzewającą końcówkę. Tym razem bardziej klasyczny imperialny stout z De Molena. Jest to konkretne i mocne piwo, jak na RIS-a przystało, do tego nieco słodkie na początku, ale z konkretna goryczką, czyli wszystko, jak lubię.
