m.mahu (37) - Iasi, ROMANIA - SEP 16, 2016
Bottle at Beer Zone Iasi, Ro. Pours pitch black, oily. Medium, dark head. Smells of smoke, plums, fresh green walnuts, a bit of alcohol. Deep coffee nose and taste, dark spices. Moderate, lingering bitterness. A bit of sweet taste at end. Great Imperial Stout . Highly recommended.

chinchill (4262) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 14, 2016
12 oz bottle into a Belgian snifter. This is a mediocre looking RIS with a mediocre aroma. The flavor and smooth mouthfeel are, however, well above mediocre. There’s a sweet, boozy aroma from the near black body that’s unimpaired by a head, there being only a ring moments after the pour. The flavor though, is rich, moderately complex and well balanced. Partially hidden high ABV.

Calisky (2481) - ALSACE, FRANCE - AUG 27, 2016
Couleur noire, légère mousse beige. Nez malté, chocolat, cremeux. Gout de chocolat, chocolat noir, malt grillé, café, cremeux, note fruits noirs. Corps super onctueux en bouche. Aucun arome ne prend le dessus, tout est bien balancé. Fin café, grillée et note de reglisse bien longue et intense. Une petite bombe
