Poured from bottle. Aroma of coffee with a bit of chocolate. Pours black with tan head. The first taste is intensely bitter but seems smoother after a few sips. Full bodied, with slick texture, and a bitter finish. Definitely a sipping beer that goes well with deserts.

Well rounded and perfectly balanced. Coffee expresso nose.
Malted expresso in mouth. Full, full body. Long aftertaste of coffee and cocoa. No sugar, no bitternes. Great!

Rich and deep coffee beans character, roasted malt, touch of vanilla, clean finish. Simply an amazing coffee brew, THE coffee brew, so hypnotizing that it is said to have psychedelic side-effects @o@

Aroma is heavy, roasted malts, coffee... a lot of coffee actually. When you taste it the journey begins, coffee (again), roasted malts, chocolate bitterness and dust. It´s very dry in the texture. Superb!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at dieu de ciel. A body that’s completely opaque with effervasense and a grey sludge like sediment coating the sides which eventually dissipated. Creamy tan head that’s very thick. Aromas of bakers chocolate, fig, earth, alcohol and vanilla. Body is creamy, oily and heavy.

341 ml bottle from Birra+. Very dark brown, but looks black in the glass, with a big, creamy and persistent beige head. Subtle and slightly more on the sweet side aroma, big milk chocolate notes, obviously coffee, but less intense than I though. Vanilla beans, a hint of licorice and just a tiny smoky presence as well. Pleasent rooty and earhy bitterness upfront, proper espresso coffee taste, light astringency which work well making it a tad more dry and drinkable. Little warming sensation. Rich and forever lasting aftertaste, roasted and malty. Soft to average carbonation, medium to full body, oily texture. Really solid.

Nice Impy Stout. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, tobacco, and bread. Taste is similar, dark roasted malts, coffee, slight bitterness, and bready yeast. Medium to full mouthful. Taste lingers on the palate, nice winter warmer. Enjoyable brew.

Bottle. Black. Sweet fresh espresso on nose, soft roasty, dark fruity, soft sweet. Med bodied, pretty nice considering the high abv. Flavourful, intensive. Dark roasty coffee, sweet malty. Black berry fruity. Real nice coffee-RIS. Bitters enough to leave a clean finish. Nice flavour. Quite alright.
