Close to black body, but there are some brownish to red hints in there as well. The tiny, beige head consist of big bubbles and is almost gone in no time, but some long-lived bubbles continue to float along the walls of the glass and leave some lacings. Malty and strong aroma of coffee, dark caramel, chocolate, bark and far in the back some strange-ish vegetal notes. The vegetal elements are even more pronounced in the flavour, and although we’re not talking cooked vegetables in the spirit of cheep macro lagers, they are nevertheless a bit disturbing. The roasted notes and the coffee are pleasant, though. Fairly well integrated alcohol. The taste is moderate sweet and pretty heavy bitter. The beer is to close to flat, too flat for my liking. Full body and a light dryness in the aftertaste. A decent beer, but not a particularly successful imperial stout.
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 15 months before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo]

Piwo wyraziste, świetnie połączone aromaty czekolady, kawy jak i również momentami po ogrzaniu i pełnym otwarciu sie piwa na wierzch wychodzą aromaty delikatnych pralin oraz głębia szlachetnego alko jak z zawijanych włoskich deserowych torcikiów z czekoladą. Polecam!

Formidable stout, peut-être la meilleure de la brasserie à ce jour. Café et épices, le tout parfaitement dosé. Je recommande !

hackobock (1375) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 14, 2014
August 7, 2014. Bottle, best before december 2015. Pours dark reddish brown with a medium sized tan head. Aroma is lots of coffee with chocolate and light red berries and spices in the background. Taste is medium sweet caramel, light bitter chocolate and coffee. Finish is light dry spicy coffee bitterness. Medium bodied, average carbonation.

Patrickctenchi (3662) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Cloudy, dark brown, with a tan ring. Dark bread, bitter coffee aroma. Taste is peppery espresso, bitter chocolate roast. A touch of ashiness. Subdued alcohol heat and bitterness. Very mellow...a nice sipper.

mcclainc50 (172) - New York, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Pours a dark brown color with a thick head leaving moderate lacing. Slight coffee aroma with a little malt. Strong coffee flavor with a little roasted malt, toffee and a hint of chocolate. Light mouthfeel eat to drink, very good beer.

mikske79 (1242) - Puerto Plata, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC - SEP 6, 2014
Dit is echt een van de slechtste bieren dat ik ooit geprobeerd heb. De naam zegt exact wat je krijgt, maar da is niet echt positief

Zwiebel88 (127) - GERMANY - SEP 6, 2014
Fast schwarzes Bier mit ROtschimmer und kleinperligem Schaum. In der Nase Kaffee, Bitterschokolade, Kakao, leichte dunkle Früchte, Karamell. Am Gaumen süß im Antrunk, anschließend dominieren Kaffeenoten und Bitterkeit gepaart mit etwas dunklen Früchten. Cremig im Mund.

Cunningham (4499) - Halden, NORWAY - SEP 4, 2014
Pitch black color with a thick tan head. Rich coffee aroma. Full body. Fine balance between sweetness and bitterness. Soft carbonation and a bit oily texture. Powerful and smoooth stuff. Rich coffee/espresso with notes of chocolate and vanilla. Maybe a bit one dimensional. But that is really nice sometimes. Lovely powerful stout. Well masked alcohol.
[Bottle at Den Gode Nabo in Trondheim, Norway]

"Coffee pretty dominant in the nose and flavor (not that there’s anything wrong with that), but it does make for a somewhat one dimensional brew. Big n thick, chewy. Roasted malt, chocolate Carmel and a lite bitterness fight for attention user the joe."
