Beerhunter111 (10458) - Hasborn, GERMANY - MAY 22, 2015
Das Bier ist fast schwarz und hat eine mittelgroße bräunliche Schaumkrone. Geruch schokoladig, süß, Kaffee, Toffee, leicht alkoholisch. Geschmack sehr röstmalzig, süß, brauner Zucker, Schokolade, etwas Kaffee, der hohe Alkoholgehalt ist zu spüren, leider etwas zu süß, dennoch klasse!

reddd (1) - POLAND - MAY 20, 2015 does not count
Bottle; pours jet black with tiny brown head, which melts in a couple of seconds. In aroma chocolate, coffee and a hint of sweet vanilla. In taste chocolate, bitter and quite creamy, but also alcoholic. In aftertaste a bit too much alcoholic. Good but not that great. Aging could do this beer justice.

djoeye (2266) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 4, 2015
Modest pinkish tan head, near black body w ruby edge, small pads on glassware. Aroma of chocolate, dark fruits, dark roasted malts, cherries, oak, floral hops. Tastes a bowl of dark dried fruits, quickly followed by fruity dark chocolate, well blended, hazelnut oils, bourbon notes, cocoa notes. Finishes with dark chocolate, dry raisins, oh whatta black juice this is. Soft carbonation, half dry feel and solid body. Abv dangerously well hidden, but my head told me to stop in time.

hrabren (140) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 17, 2015
Beer tasting@Svijet piva, Zagreb. 0.33 bottle shared with Niko. Pitch black, small brown-tan head, like tan spots on the surface, went away quickly. Strong caramel aroma, dark bread, chocolate and dried plums. Taste is licorice, bitter with toffee sweetness. Very complex. Incredibly full body, long lasting bitter finish. Some might find this lingering bitterness to much, but it’s just what I like about this imperial stout. Almost perfect!
