HV (4) - Utrecht, - JUL 31, 2009
Appearance: no foam. This is the first beer Ive come across that has absolutely none. No lacing, hardly any carbonation. Colour and opacity are as one would expect to seen in an imperial stout. Its dark, very dark. Tipping the glass shows lots of sugar in the beer. Aroma opens with dark dried fruit, prunes and currants, with something vaguely citrusy lingering (candied peel ?) in the back. Mouthfeel: first sip is like drinking port. This brew is incredibly syrupy. The flavour is very well-balanced, slightly malty with overwhelming dark fruit, prunes, cherries and currants. There is a recurring touch of fruit, and friendly bitterness - like orange marmelade on slightly blackened toast in the aftertaste. Drinkability: go easy on this one. Its heavy in flavour and mouthfeel, but also heavy on the alcohol. Drink slowly and enjoy (Im sure you will!) Overall impression: great beer - an impressive imperial stout, if perhaps slightly low in foam. Otherwise, its superb.

humpah (92) - Jyvskyl, FINLAND - JUL 21, 2016
0,33l bottle from Firmabier. Pours pitch black colour with a moderate gray head that quickly reaches the top. Aroma of dark malts, caramelly chocolate, dark coffee, some peat and smoke, cognac, nuttiness. Surprisingly light body for a IS, around medium body. Very enjoyable.

heavy (2654) - Split, CROATIA - JUL 14, 2016
Apr. 16. A 0.33 l bottle that poured a pitch black body with medium sized brown head. Quite light aroma, although fine. Chocolate, cocoa, latte here. Flavor was smooth, lightly roasted with coffee, chocolate, wood. Medium to full body within which alcohol was hidden very well, felt only as a slight warming in its finish. A very nice IS, although admittedly not stellar. Looking forward other beers from this brewery which has become available in Croatia!

11.2 ounces? Really? Wheres my missing 0.8 ounces? Im missing 6.66% of my beer! Is that why this is Hell & Damnation? Dark black, Nice beautiful khaki head. Whoa, this is delicious. Thick chocolate. Coffee. Sticky. Mocha. Nutty. This is rather underrated, and it rates well. Incredibly drinkable despite the 10%. Not hot.

alteregoo (797) - POLAND - JUL 1, 2016
Po przelaniu do szkła tworzy się minimalna, jasno brązowa pianka, ktra szybko znika. Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzysta, z niewielkim brązowym refleksem. Aromat to głwnie kawa i czekolada, w tle odrobina wanilii i orzeszkw coli. W smaku słodkie, gęste, treściwe, wręcz oleiste, masa czekolady, pralin i likieru kawowego, domyka to przypalany karmel i dość wysoka, palona goryczka, idealnie balansująca piwo. Niskie wysycenie, brak kwaśności, delikatna tytoniowość w posmaku. Dzięki fajnej gładkości nieziemsko pijalny trunek.
Świetny RIS, kompletny pod względem konsystencji, słodkości, goryczki i balansu, ładnie ukryty alkohol, jedynie nieco bardziej złożony i intensywniejszy aromat dopełniłby szczęścia.

Inoven (229) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUN 18, 2016
Flesje gedeeld met familie. Donkerbruin bier met weinig schuim. Aroma is houtig en caramelachtig. Smaak is caramelachtig, chocolade-achtig, zoet en rokerig. Nasmaak is iets hoppig.
