An absolute unique beer. Very, very strong taste, not to be taken lightly. Could be a really fine dessert beer, but I found it a little to much for my liking.

Poured from a bottle courtesy of my Summer Secret Santa. Aroma is roasty with some moderate dark chocolate notes. Fairly strong coffee character with a nice, dark nuttiness to it. As it warms a bit more chocolate comes out and some light alcohol notes. Pours black with a large, thick, mocha head that steadily recedes to a thin film that lingers thicker on the edges. Medium lacing and medium small legs. Flavor is somewhat sweet with moderate dark chocolate notes. Some light roast chaarcrer with a touch of ash. Moderately strong dark coffee notes with some moderate bitterness in the finish. Some faint alcohol notes. A light anise note. Some lingering sweetness with bitter coffee. Mouthfeel is medium full bodied and slightly creamy with medium carbonation. Low, but present astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a nice coffee stout with a darker coffee presence than I often see here in the US. Pretty easy drinking with nice chocolate notes.

Kolor brązowy z pomarańczowym refleksem, piana gęsta, utrzymuje się solidny korzuch. W zapachu kawa, kakao i whisky. Ciężkie, alkoholowe, rozgrzewające, w smaku kawa i gorzka czekolada, znaczna kawowa kwaśność. W posmaku pojawia się też paloność.

Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 20C). Bottle 33 cl - Batch A. AROMA: very nice and intense aroma of roasted malt with a strong cocoa note. faint background coffee beans notes. low hop aroma. APPEARANCE: very dark brown and almost opaque. average tanned head with good retention. TASTE: predominant roasted flavour with strong notes of cocoa with a slight vinous aspect and some dried dark fruits (plums). some spicy notes are present. medium bitterness from hops and roasted malts. near dry, bitter and roasted finish. PALATE: full body with a very present velvety texture. slight alcohol warmth and moderate carbonation. OVERALL: a very good imperial stout with an extra spicy touch that gives a unique note.

Piana obfita, beżowa, drobna i trwała, barwa ciemno brązowa, nieprzejrzysta z rubinowymi refleksami. W aromacie prym wiedzie świeżo mielona i palona kawa naturalna, w tle kakao i nieco cynamonu. Rewelacja! Smak powalający - kubki smakowe od razu zostają zdominowane przez gorzką kawę prosto z upalnej Brazylii i słodką czekoladę Milka ze Szwajcarii- idealny mix. Zarówno zapach jak i smak są wyraziste, konkretne i przyjemne. Wysycenie średnie do niskiego, spora pełnia i gładkość, goryczka zaznaczona, aczkolwiek delikatna, kawowo-korzenna. W afterteasie delikatna paloność, chmiel i likier kawowy. Jest to taki kawowy imperialny milk stout - półsłodki, degustacyjny trunek do powolnego sączenia.

Bottle, thanks rayaron. Deep brown with a huge head. Smell of milk chocolate, coffee, vanilla and caramel. Sweet, like dark chocolate cake flavors, roasty with mild bitterness. Medium-bodied, oily texture. Not outstanding but quite nice.
