Svesse (7499) - Hässelby, - FEB 1, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2013 (Draught at Fermentoren, Copenhagen, 25 Jan 2013) Black colour with brief, brown head. Malty, roasted nose with dark chocolate, cacao, coffee and liquorice. Malty, roasted taste with notes of dark chocolate, cacao, espresso, vanilla and a full-flavoured finish with a certain sweetness and a generous roasted bitterness. Full body, with some sweetness. Quite well balanced and very tasty. Very nice. Rerate: (Bottle, 30 June 2013) Black colour with huge, frothy, pale brown head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of dark chocolate, strong sweet espresso, liquorice, soy sauce, molasses and caramel. Malty, roasted taste with strong black coffee, cocoa, dark chocolate, liquorice, soy sauce, hints of bourbon, burnt sugar (or molasses) and a generous coffee bitterness in the finish. A certain alcohol glow coming through. Full body, quite sweet. Quite powerful and very nice. Same figures as in original rating.

It’s got some smoke and ash without delving into ashtray -- a little surprising, given the name. Dark chocolate, dark coffee, and more dark.

Acid303 (609) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - JAN 31, 2016
35.5cl bottle, served in Shaker glass. Pitch black colour with medium tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, caramel and hints of smoke. Taste is the same with less smoke and a slight bitter touch. It’s a very intense brew, the roasted flavours last for quite long on the palate. Full body, good carbonation. Very good Imperial Stout.

JK (5410) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JAN 31, 2016
This is good but nothing new. It has the evil twon house flavor to it. Which i assume is from the yeast. Carbonation is low. And thr head quickly fades. Heavily roaste malt. Some coffee and chocolate flsvor. Heavy palate. Flsvor had a little spoce, amd i get some plastic in the aftertaste. Some cardamom maybe, and i taste clove with a big sip.

Brentv (565) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 30, 2016
From bottle. Pours black with a one-finger beige head that leaves a good quantity of lacing on the glass. Rich coffee aroma with a bit of vanilla on the nose. Taste is coffee and plenty of roasted malts. Neither sweet nor bitter, this is dry and has a dry finish. Medium full mouthfeel.

colui72 (488) - HONG KONG - JAN 29, 2016
Pours thick and black, with a small brown head. Nose is coffee, roasted malts, vanilla. Taste gets the same, and booze, boozy beer. Malty, with sweetness and bitterness quite balanced, some hops. Medium body with low carbonation. Pretty decent sipping ale.

ciocanelu (591) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JAN 27, 2016
Pitch black color with mocha head. Aroma has chocolate and some sweet spices. I get vanilla, cloves, cinnamon and some liquor. Taste starts sweet and slightly boozy. Finishes bitter and roasty, lingering in the aftertaste. I also get some hops in the aftertaste. Body is heavy and has medium carbonation. Quite good overall, just slightly boozy for my taste.

Pours a one finger brown head that fades slowly leaving some lace. Black color, no highlights. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied. Coffee and chocolate nose and flavor is baked chocolate with some malty sweetness. Higher ABV is hidden. $3.80 for a 12oz bottle from Tully’s Beer & Wine Wells, Me.

Bottle. Black oily pour, nice. Aroma of creamy milk chocolate, mild roast and mocha. Nice taste of mocha coffee, mild licorice, cream, bitters, subtle spices and some cacao. Mildly boozy. This is good stuff.
