4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
Pours black into the glass. Beautiful two-finger coffee colored head of thick foam. Retention is okay. Lacing is great.
Very nice nose. Smells of cocoa, vanilla and leather. Roasted chocolate malts. Very nice smokey notes. Dark fruits.
Big chocolate and coffee flavors. Huge roasted malt flavor. Slight hints of molasses, brown sugar, vanilla, and cherries. Touch of dried fig flavor. Here, also, is a very nice touch of smoke.
Feels very good. Nice and medium thick body. Slick and almost oily. Personally, Iíd like it to be a tad bit thicker, but it is still very good.
This is an excellent representation of what a good stout should be. Iím very surprised that this is from outside of America. Tastes like a big American stout. Alcohol is very well hidden.
This brew is extremely drinkable. I want more.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33 cl bottle.
Pours black color with a small off-white head. Some salmiac on the nose, faint licorice, dark malts and distant chocolate notes. Licorice on the flavor, quite dominant actually, subtle orange notes too, a tad of caramel with cocoa on the finish. Decent sweet Foreign Stout.

Rated based on notes taken on 15 Apr 2012 -- This is a very nice Imperial Stout. Mouthfeel is light so it is dangerously easy to drink. Flavorful as well.

Dark black ruby with light brown lacing lasting foam head. Nice strong bitter coffee aroma, therefor bit disappointing taste, little weak. Nice coffee aftertaste. Good beer. (Velp 201412)

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep dark brown colour, huge creamy brown head, which lasts for several minutes; aroma of vanilla, mild roasted coffee, chocolate, herbal liqueur notes and hints of alcohol; taste is the same - excellent stout; it is life saving after a lot of industrial lagers I have tasted in the last couple of days

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice smooth body, although its kind of light for a stout. Rich espresso/mocha flavors are really highlighted by a bottle-conditioned twang. Is there some vanilla in there? Remarkably drinkable for a stout with such a high alcohol content at 8.0%. Everytime I drink it, Iím impressed all over again. Iím going to say it: this is the best stout Iíve ever had.

Beautiful thick dark and syrupy, with a lively fizz for a stout.
Itís full and long on the tongue. With a medium sweetness and medium bitter taste.
Very tasty and would definitely buy again!

Bottle, picked up in an Indian food shop in Geneva. Pretty black, big beige head. Massive up front roastiness, with a delicious heavy sweet powerful roasty character. Fades to a more traditional coffee bitter drier finish. Full of flavour and very drinkable. Good label too.
