3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
0.33 bottle from Hoppiness, Koper, Slovenia. Pours dark brown to black with almost no head. Coffee dominates, dark chocolate, tobacco. Coffee bitterness with chocolate sweetness. Oily, medium body, like ice coffee. Taste is full, but body not so much. Dry finish. Good, but not surprisingly.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours oily black, thin tight head.
Smells of coffee and chocolate with some Christmas fruit, spice and molasses. Like sniffing the bottom of a coffee grinder.
Silky sweetness gives way to bitter morning coffee, that dries further back the palate. Roasted malt. Much stronger on the coffee and far more chocolate.
Body is smooth with low carbonation. Carries the flavour and complexity incredibly well.
One of the better coffee stouts I've had. All the better for being imperial, since the lower ABV ones don't tend to do the coffee flavours any justice. Would love to try a barrel aged version!

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Strong aroma of coffee and roasted malt. Pitch black colour with small tan head. Taste is a coffee and milk chocolate. I can not believe that this has >11% of ABV, it is very drinkable, however taste is not very complex. Bitterness is low, could be higher. Overall interesting RIS.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
330ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours black with foamy tan head. Bitter roasted malt aroma, taste is typically a little flat with much of the taste being hard to find and lacking any real oomph for the ABV. Shame.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Man muss es schon mögen, aber alles in allem ist das Piwo selbst für Nichtliebhaber schwarzer Biere eine feine Sache. Dick und stark mit einem ordentlichen Bumms an Kaffee und Roestmalzen. Dazu etwas Milch und eine milde Säure zum Schluss. Nie werde ich mich vor Stouts verneigen, aber das hier hat was. Selbst etwas Hopfen.

Bottle from Rudat in Dortmund. The beer has got a deep black colour with a steady, low head and smooth body. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, brandy and oak. Taste of intense chocolate and coffee, malt, barley, wine, sherry, plums, dark berries, oak and woods. Smooth to drink, very wine-like. Absolutely delicious.
