Thomasalias (320) - Budapest, - NOV 11, 2012
0,25l bottle as gift from Denmark. Opaque, black color with medium, creamy, dark brown head, which disappears quickly. Sweet, alcoholly odor followed by roasty, smoked malt flavours. The aroma is incredibly smoky and roasty. At the beginning it’s sweet and caramelly, but after the firs impressions it’s dry and tastes like a roast pork. It’s definitelly made with a lot of smoked malt, which causes this meet flavour. It must had a lot of chocolate malt too which makes the color so black, but it doesn’t make the beer sour and bitter. Alcohol and honey flavours also appears. Dry, intensive and complex taste, nothing can dominate, but all the three basic flavours (sweet, sour, bitter) appears. Full bodied with oily texture and light carbonation. Roast pork finish. It’s an interesting beer. Surprisingly complex, incredibly oily and full bodied. This beer is dominated by the malty flavours, and from this view it’s the opposite of the Mikkeller Black Hole, which is a "hoppy imperial stout". It’s a concentrated beer, 25cl is totally enough. The alcohol content isn’t too high, and it can’t be felt as dominant in the aroma. The texture, the body, and the malty flavours make this beer this rich and concentrated.

Wielkie piwo. doskonale czekoladowe. MA sie wręcz wrażenie że sie pije roztopione belgijskie praliny. Kapitalne

Eructoblaster (3395) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 16, 2015
Bottle - 330ml. Opaque black body with an instantly fading brown foamy head. Fantastic malty/hoppy aroma with woody, fruity, rhum, and cocoa hints. Alcohol is not agressive. Its robust, complex malty/hoppy taste carries roasted coffee, liquorice, oaky, cocoa, yeasty, and rhum notes. Ends with a long, warming bittersweet finish. Awesome!

NordicV (1390) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - AUG 15, 2015
I stort sett helt svart öl med ett mkt lätt brunt skum. Stora dofter av rostat kaffe och mörk choklad. I smaken tillkommer viss alkoholsötma och en rostad bitterhet.

veceo (866) - CROATIA - AUG 13, 2015
Cloudy very dark brown color, average sized brown head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, herbs, wood, roasted malt. Taste is very rich and creamy. Coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, wood but also booze and warmth that goes along. Very sticky on the lips. Long sweet aftertaste. Great complex IS.

Pitch black, medium sized brown color. Great aroma of cocoa, chocolate and liquorice, too bad for alcohol presence. Taste is slightly sweet with cocoa and hints of booze, finish is great, lots of cocoa and brown sugar. Full body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. Very very good. //svijetpiva

gregwilsonstl (1433) - Missouri, USA - JUL 25, 2015
Dark black. Used motor oil. Oil sits on top. Chewy. Lots of thick sediment. Charred. Burnt toast. It’s in your face, exactly like the description says. Quite hoppy for an Impy Stout. Extremely dry.

Pours jet black. Aroma is very dark and lots of roasted malts, some salmiak tones. Taste is sweet and filled with dark roasted malts and coffee tones, some liquorice. No hints of the massive abv at all. To me it really feels like a great stout suited for additions of both cold brewed coffee and some barrel ageing on bourbon kegs! Got to try the bourbon barrel aged one! Bottle from SB.
