KyotoLefty (6635) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 30, 2013
Bottled. Nose of coconut, coffee, fig, chocolate. Sweet, complex nose. Big coffee. Black with lace. Light body, with flavors of coffee, fruits, coconuts, cream, chocolate. It is hard to place the figs exactly. A bit think but good flavor, huge coffee—to much more me personally but well done. Dry finish.

This is a tasty, but very roasted flavor. I don't taste the fig flavor, but I still like it overall.

DocLock (8001) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 16, 2013
750 bottle from PUB’N. Pours hazy dark blackish with minimal tan head. Nose is charred roasty dark malt coffee. Tastes of charred black malts not much fig or coconut, but a heavy coffee flavor, and finishing notes of blackberry.

CapFlu (4588) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 14, 2013
(750ml bottle) Purchased at Hillside Liquors for a ridiculous $27 or something. Pours a thin, beige head that dissipates while the black body is rich in aroma and depth. Great gritty burnt coffee and spicy, slight Balsamic. Very interesting.

beer-yum (546) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 25, 2013
Probably the one Epic brew I don’t get and/or love. Was not as enjoyable as the other beers I tried during a black beer session. Not in the same league as their "Repocalypse" (please make more of that)!

SlovakSniper (3269) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 1, 2013
Une bouteille de 75 cl. Version 2012. Une robe presque noire qui fabrique un petit col mousseux plutôt foncé. Au nez, des parfums mélangés de chocolat, de petits fruits charnus et de café. L’alcool est par moment rude. Je ne perçois aucune trace de noix de coco. Au goût, les choses ne font que s’améliorer. Le café et le chocolat s’affirment de belle façon. Les fruits noirs se mélangent pour former une mélasse goûteuse. L’alcool me semble être mieux camouflé. Je ne vois toujours pas la noix de coco: c’est dommage. En bouche, le corps du liquide est moyen-mince. Les bulles sont modérées et la texture est presque huileuse. La finale se fait sur des notes peu amères de chocolat et de mélasse.

Belle grosse bouteille partagée par slovaksniper. Merci. Un liquide brun foncé qui ne mousse presque pas. Un nez marqué par l’alcool volatile, et ensuite une panoplie de trucs bruns et noirs comme, des figues, des dattes, du café, de la cendre, des raisins secs. En bouche le café prend beaucoup de place, la texture est agréable. La finale sur la poussière est longue. Loin d’être raté mais aussi loin d’être ma préférée.

badlizard (5537) - Berkeley, California, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Bottle. Black with a thin fizzy tan head. Sweet caramel, earthy chocolate, and vegetal coffee grounds aroma and taste with light coconut notes and roasted grains, but I’m not getting the fig flavors out of it. Oily medium bodied palate.

IrishBoy (3869) - Bakersfield, California, USA - MAY 15, 2013
750ml bottle from Jane’s Beer Store. Nose is big on charred coffee with some very light fig notes. Black with a big tan head. Flavor is oatmeal cereal, bitterness, and lots of charred coffee. I wish the coconut would show up,

Jow (2231) - New York, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Bottle shared by AZ crew at the driveway tasting. Pours black with big coffee nose. Tastes mostly of coffee, but with some light cocounut, malt, oatmeal, earth, and vanilla. Not picking up figs or dark fruits at all. a touch thin for Imp Stout but tasty enough.
