Bottle. Black, huge head. Loads of spicy roasted coffee beans, dark dried chocolate, roasted barley. Full body. Dark chocolate, espresso. And roasted malts, again. Dry, roasty strong stout. Isn’t as thick or cloying as many. Dry and roasty, flavourful and drinkable without being sweet. Really nice.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled 29/01/13 at 11.2%. Poured into snifter. Initially smells a bit sharp, coffee, yeast. Mouthfeel is medium to full, nice level of carbonation. Flavour - toffee, chocolate, roasted coffee finish. Background liquorice and soy sauce. Alcohol is noticeable and warms the chest. Needed a little while out in the air to lose its sharpness, but after 10 minutes this was a smooth and tasty beer.

Big roasted coffee aroma to start with, pours an opaque black with a huge light tan head. The coffee flavor is the predominant one in the beer with no alcohol heat detectable at all. Long lingering coffee finish as well. Quite a tasty coffee stout.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hefty dark pour but not producing any head, except some small bubbles that settles fast but leaving a litte layer of foam. Nose is rich bitter and heavy roasted coffee. Notes of tar, wood and dark chocolate as well. Taste is strong coffee and malty. Bitterness like from dark chocolate is dominating the aftertaste, and there’s some warmth from the alcohol. Would have loved some carbonation tho..

Massive coffee on the nose, but have to say that I pleasantly surprised by the flavours. Rich and cloying with mocha and cocoa undertones and yet not overtly sweet. Understandably the flavours linger for a long time, and it is a shame this beer is no longer being produced. Hopefully in the future a socially responsible version can be produced.

Kolsvart med ljusbrunt stort skum! Massor med kaffe i doft och smak! Ganska mycket kolsyra och lite blaskig trots sin styrka! Bra öl!

A splendid, incredibly strong imperial coffee stout. There is no head at all, its inky and oil-like. Delicious, though.

Bottle from Leiden Drinks. Coffee, chocolate, sherry in the nose. Rich and winy. Smooth and full body and flavor, very hoppy and bitter finish, cocoa, coffee, dark fruits. Good and smooth, though the coffee takes over for the most part.
