Fantastic aroma. Jet black in color and a very sweet taste. Stays on palate long after its swallowed. Great finish, great beer.

On tap at the Party Source in Cincy/Kentucky. Black pour with a creamy looking brown head. Aroma of sweet malt, chocolate. Tastes are sweet chocolate, milky, roasted malt, licorice, coffee. slick, thin palate. Good, though sweet for my tastes. - 7.2

Franckg (128) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 25, 2015
Arômes de sucre, café noir et chocolat. Le goût suit ces arômes avec des effluves de sucre doux et un peu amer. Le chocolat ressort ensuite avec le côté café. Les saveurs de beignes sont quand même subtils et c’est surement une bonne chose. Le corps est bien rond et soyeux avec une faible effervescence. Le haut taux d’alcool ne paraît aucunement. La finale s’étire longuement sur des saveurs de chocolat noir amer. Définitivement à essayer.

furthur (277) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - JAN 23, 2015
Bottle, black opaque body, mahogany head, fades to a ring. Aroma is Nilla wafers, cherries and raisins. Taste is sweet, molasses, cookies, cherries, raisin, vanilla, coffee. Palate is rich and smooth, not too thick, carbonation moderate. This is sweeter than Iike, usually, but as a dessert beer, it’s pretty good.

Franzen (363) - SWEDEN - JAN 23, 2015
Lots of vanilla and fudge in the aroma with faint traces of chocolate and liquorice. Malty sweet taste with lots of vanilla, some coffee and liquorice , finish has some coffee like bitterness but not enough to balance the sweetness. Intense taste but a bit too sweet.

swanmann (638) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 21, 2015
Bottle: It’s very dark chocolate brown with a small amount of tan, orange-tinted foam. It smells and tastes like a deep, rich chocolate cake doughnut. It’s sweet, chocolatey, rich, not too thick, just a bit slick. It finishes bittersweet and a bit of coffee. Full-bodied with pretty soft carbonation. Big and delicious.

axl (10) - Lund, SWEDEN - JAN 21, 2015
65cl bottle. Pitch black liquid with rapidly disappearing one finger dark grey-brown head, looks delicious. Strong aroma of cocoa/dark chocolate and some high quality coffee with roasted tones appearing as well. Silky smmoth yet very dominant mouthfeel with light carbonation spreading it on the palate, massive aftertaste with some alcohol. Rather sweet taste, chocolate like a chocolate doughnut with chocolate icing (can’t remember the name of the one they had at Dunkin’ Doughnuts when I was a kid, but sort of like that but not as sugary as it probably was) followed by tastes of strong, fairly heavily roasted coffee and finnishing with warming alcohol. Very, very nice imp. porter!

hopscotch (9730) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Bottle... This beer rocks!... Pours murky and dark brown (nearly black) with a small, fleeting beige head. The aroma is a collage of chocolate crème, chocolate chips, vanilla and brown sugar with a trace of cinnamon. Full-bodied and silky with kicked-back carbonation. The flavor boasts sweet chocolate crème accompanied by a modestly bitter and deeply roasted splash of Bustello Supreme coffee. Chewy, moderately sweet, mocha finish. Great base beer, but unlike “Biscotti Break,” there are no boutique or frilly components. Another world-class beer from Westbrook and Evil Twin!

Vestergaard (477) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - JAN 15, 2015
I think i had like 6 or 7 refills on tap at Borefts Beer Festival 2014. The beer is black with a dense, dark brown head. Aroma really has the sticky dough, sugar and chocolate coated doughnuts, chocolate, lots of vanilla, glace, some roast and some caramel. Taste has that milk chocolate sweetness, but also some more dark and dry chocolate notes. Vanilla and molasses, coffee, fudge and caramel. The roasty bitterness and dark chocolate somewhat balances all the sweet flavors. This really shouldn’t work as well as it does! Medium high carbonation that again balances an otherwise extremely full and sticky body. Not among the best beers i’ve had, but a beer i could drink liters of with pleasure.. which i did ..
