Black color with no head at all. Aroma of liquerece, chocolate, strawberies may be, interesting. Taste is sweet and a bit bitter like coffee, nicely balanced. Medium body, sticky texture, flat carbonation. My girlfriend likes it and I like it as well. If you like sweet stouts this one is pretty good.

dnicolaescu (837) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - OCT 11, 2014
BOTTLE 33 CL. Look: pitch black, smallish espresso head. Aroma: sweet strawberry marmalade, light roasted not the meld into the sweetness, sweet chocolate, cherry liquor, some alcohol. Taste: it is sweet, marmalade, roast is in the back, no alcohol perse, but you can feel the spice, Moderate bitterness which is half roasted espresso and half hops. The body is a nice balance between drinkability and richness. Excellent!

Bottle at home. Pours dark with beautiful and very persistent brown head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee and caramel. Taste of coffee and chocolate, medium roasted. Good, but i would expect more body with 11% abv.

Garrold (1461) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2014
Bottle. Brewtique, Macclesfield. Clear, very dark red. Thin, dense, sticky, coffee coloured head. Dark chocolate. Dried, stone fruit. Cocoa powder. And refreshingly, no smoke. Taste is fruity dry, cocoa bean sweet, with a tad of earthy bitterness. Palate is soft, rich, and chocolate smooth. Finishes dry, and long, gentle bitter. Drinks way under the ABV. Lovely, mouth numbing, and rich.

superspak (2681) - Michigan, USA - SEP 27, 2014
330 ml bottle into snifter, best before 6/2015. Pours dense fairly pitch black color with a small dense dark brown head with good retention, that reduces to a thin lacing cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, toast, toffee, dark bread, light nuttiness, raisin, plum, light char, and roasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malts and light-moderate dark fruit notes; with good strength. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, toast, toffee, dark bread, light nuttiness, licorice, raisin, plum, light smoke/char, and roast/toasted earthiness. Good amount of roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, toast, toffee, dark bread, light nuttiness, raisin, plum, light smoke/char, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity and robustness of big dark/roasted malt and moderate dark fruit flavors; with a nice roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a very creamy, moderately slick, and lightly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice imperial stout. All around great complexity and balance of big dark/roasted malt and moderate dark fruit flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

w_adwersarz (172) - Cracow, POLAND - SEP 20, 2014
Aromat z butli kakao. Barwa czarne bez prześwitów, z minimalną pianą, która szybko się ulotniła cośtam krążkując na szkle. Kawa, ciemne owoce, odrobina kwasku od kasy, likier i odrobineczka alkoholu. Pełne, oleiste, nisko wysycone, z czekoladowa goryczką która dość długo pozostaje. Żona jak spróbowała powiedziała "O k@#wa jakie niedobre" co jest niezwykłym komplementem dla tak pysznego piwa.

earwaxcowboy (5) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 14, 2014 does not count
33 cc bottle, drinking temperature 14c. aroma, coffee, blue cheese, charcoal, wasabi. Pitch black thick body, light brown head and great lacing. Oily and syrupy palate. A bitter aftertaste that keeps on lingering for a long time... hmmmm

Ocenę przysłania mi użycie w piwie chmielu ziołowego, którego nie lubię, poza tym treściwe i aksamitne.

Muggus69 (1226) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - SEP 12, 2014
330mL bottle BB 12/2015 Amazing looking beer; jet black, opaque with a big rocky orange-tan head persisting. Serious nose to it; coffee-liqueur, dark chocolate, black plums/fruits & dried fruit, molasses & soy sauce. Thick, oily viscous body, low carbonation, very long on the palate. Luscious, decadent palate; liqueur-like chocolate & coffee, cocoa, cookies, anise, tar, spicy hops, sultanas & dates & prunes - so much going on. Big lingering bitterness, long warm finish. Top notch Imperial stout!
