Pours a pitch black color with a thin brown head. Solid aroma of rich, decadent chocolate with roasted malt and mild molasses. The flavor is rich, decadant and amazing, it’s a malt cornucopia that provides chocolate and roasted flavors along mild molasses and medium sweetness, there’s also a bitter finish. The body is medium to full with a vinous texture and soft carbonation. This is borderline excellent, I’m quite happily surprised.

Black with a thin tan head. Very sweet soy aroma. Smooth with an initial sweetness and a drier soy finish. Good but does. Not have the bitterness for style ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle @ home. Pours with a dark brown colour, medium (big for this style!) beautiful off-white rocky head. Aroma is very rich in coffee, also dark chocolate, licorice and vanilla; some fruit after a while, too; a bit faint, but good overall. Taste is medium sweet, medium bitter, slightly sour. Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. Quite a good imperial stout, needs a bit of refining but it’s on the verge of becoming one of the greats.

Uit de fles geschonken @Emelisse. Mooie volle imp. stout, geurig en smaakvol: geroosterde mout, caramel, koffie, merk weinig van de 11% abv.

Bottlebrought back from a trip to Amsterdam. Black with a fading beige head. Fantastic chocolate aroma. The taste has spice with rich chocolate and coffee. Lingering bitter chocolate finish. Nice full mouthfeel. Superb.

Schön dick und mega süffig. Naturgemäß etwas stark, dabei jedoch fruchtig und voller Schokolade, vor allem zum Schluss. Zudem zum Schluss hin eine moderate Bitterkeit. Klasse.

McTapps (6396) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - MAR 15, 2016
Bottle bought in the Netherlands. The beer has got a deep black colour with a steady head and smooth body. Aroma of coffee and chocolate. Taste of chocolate, plums, oak, barrel, wine, coffee and malt. Intense finish. Delicious.
