Jimthechap (1692) - Christchurch, - JAN 30, 2013
It sits innocuously enough in the glass: black with a faintish prickly head that sank into a gibbous moon of film on top of the beer. There is a persistent tingle of carbonation visible, which I don’t ordinarily see in other imperial stouts. This could bode well, or I may be reaching for the bottl of water and some aspirin when I wake up. Jet black colour with hints of coffee and before the glass hits my nose I pick up definite Bordeaux aromas of rich Merlot based wines. A shade closer reveals coffee and rich plum pudding. There is some spice there too: nutmeg, cinnamon and allspice. The flavour is strong. The coffee grounds from the bottom of the pot, burnt toast, glace fruits, coffee leftovers and other mayhem. The mouthfeel reveals prickly carbonation that serves to exacerbate the bitterness. This is a bit of a brute and no mistake. Dries on the palate, but stays stomping with heavy boots on the finish. You know you’ve been assaulted by this beer. Whether or not you mind is another thing altogether.

Aromas and flavors of cocoa, coffee, and toast. Body was a bit too light. Opaque black. Very very good beer.

Boomkweket (19) - Boskoop, NETHERLANDS - OCT 17, 2014
HR73 / ,17-10-14 / Fles. Bij inschenken bijna zwart en met een kraag als guinness, deze verdwijnt echter snel(non carbonated). Prachtig aroma met koffie extracten. Mocca, caramel zij meer dan aanwezig. In de smaak eerst wat vreemd dan mocca, koffiebitter en een lange afdronk. Heerlijk, maar ietwat vreemd bier

Incredibly much coffee scent. Truly a heavy coffee flavor too. Heavy bitterness that fills the mouth forever. A very heavy beer. But I really liked it. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Unde (371) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 29, 2014
(2012 version) Black beer with long lasting head and small lacing. Aroma has coffee, berries, forest and grass. Taste has lots of red berries, coffee, roasted malts and forest/grass. A bit one-dimensional beer. Full body with medium carbonation. The strong red berry flavours give this one a extra points, otherwise this would’ve been just mediocre.

yngwie (13803) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 27, 2014
Bottle. An unclear, dark brown beer topped by a rim of dark beige bubbles. The aroma is very burnt and mocha-ish. Concrete dust. Pea soup. In a nice way. Too extreme though. And that goes for the flavor too, but it’s less dusty. Some sourish notes and alcohol. Medium body, slightly warming. Very low on carbonation. Lasting finish. Sort of nice, but too burnt and dusty for me. One small glass was fine, couldn’t do more though. 140927

Bottle. Pours black with a tiny off-white head. Aroma of roasted malt, ash, some grains and coffee. Flavor is sweet and warming with some roasted malt, fruitiness, chocolate, coffee and caramel. Full body, soft carbonation.

adster (427) - HUNGARY - SEP 25, 2014
Kólaszínű testén leheletnyi, bézs színű hab telepszik meg, mely pillanatok alatt el is illan. Étcsokoládés, meggyes bevezető szakaszok után a mélységből egy jó adag, frissen őrölt kávé földes, elemi erejű karaktere csatlakozik az összképhez. Maga a test szinte szánsavtartalom nélküli, a fanyar, savanykás kortyérzetet természetesen a jól megérdemelt pörkölt kávés ízjegyek töltik meg utóélettel. Száraz, nyilvánvalóan kávéközpontú, virágföldes aromák az uralkodóak, emellett azonban egy igen elegáns, tartalmas és kiegyensúlyozott ital.

BeerViking (2578) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2014
Bottle, pours a deep black with a minimal head, aromas of old wine and coffee, roasty dry-sweet palate, creamy tart-winey texture, rich with hints of whisky plus faintly of cocoa and gravy.
