750ml bottle shared by BeerGestapo, thanks Mike. As soon as I loosened the bailing the cork and cage shot off like a rocket, narrowly avoiding blinding me, and putting a dent in my ceiling. Pours dark brown with a humongous tan head. The smell is that of brattanomyces, funky and wild, with some roasty notes underneath and a touch of alcohol. The flavor is funky, earthy, alcohol, bitter, wood, and a touch of caramel sweetness. Very dry with a lot of carbonation. Overall very strange and it loses a point for almost killing me.

karpik (240) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - JUL 18, 2015
Nice aroma of coffee and chocolate. Pours almost pitch black with nice tan head. Taste is not very complex but coffee and chocolate mix is very nice. Body is medium, alcohol is very well hidden. Overall nice Imperial Stout lacking some character.

Bardzo fajne. Wyrazisty aromat suszonych śliwek. Czarne jak smoła, piana słaba. W smaku pełne, wyraziste. Godne!

the aroma of malts, dark fruits, coffee and port with hints of vanilla, brown sugar and toffee... the taste is caramel with notes of red wine, plum, fig, coffee, toffee and milk chocolate... sweet, dry and warming aftertaste...

PabloZab (517) - Wroclaw, POLAND - JUL 10, 2015
Tap (Szynkarnia, Wroclaw). Barwa niemal czarna, delikatnie opalizujaca, piana brazowa, srednio obfita, to samo z trwaloscia i lacingiem. Aromat w miare delikatny, slodki, czekoladowy z lekka nutka alkoholu, sheery w tle, bardzo przyjemny, zapowiada uczte zarowno dla zmyslu powonienia i smaku. Czekolada, szlachetny alkohol w smaku i o dziwo ta mieszanka jest calkiem pijalna, mimo swojej tresciwosci, lekko oleistej konsystencji i rozgrzewajacej mocy. Bardzo gladkie i delilatne w posmaku z malutkim kwaskiem na finiszu. Mozna powiedziec taki cichy zabojca. Swietny imperial stout ale do genialnosci troche brakuje.
