Impenetrabile color mogano con riflessi rubino. Schiuma cappuccino, aderente allo stile, compatta e persistente. Il caffè domina le prime impressioni olfattive, e pur rimanendo il filo conduttore, presto cede il passo ad altre sensazioni aromatiche: liquirizia, cioccolato ed un rinfrescante tocco di Vetyver sul finale. Palato pieno, con un retrolfattivo corrispondente ed un finale alcolico e persistente.

33cl bottle @ home. Better to sip this alone, I tried it along with some pistacchio chocolate, but the very best of it came after a few sips without it. Pour a black liquid, with shades of brown, head is small but persistent Nose is raw but very interesting, I get ground coffee, tobacco, cocoa, I’d say a little leather and a warm sweet liquorice and dark fruits note after a while. Very harsh and bitter at first sip, it gives its best in the end, with some really slight alcoholic sweetness and a hint of acidity that makes it drinkable. Long pleasant aftertaste. If I was to describe this beer in a word it would be rustic, I had more "elegant" imperial stouts, more chocolatey, but this is one of my favourites.

33cl bottle I picked up at a little bottle shop in the countryside north of Verona. Big pop and lots of fizzy brown head that settled over a watery but black body had me worried about infection. Nose doesn’t show it though, quite a nice bouquet of coffee beans, some brown sugar, toast, mocha. Flavor has cola, licorice, coffee sure, mocha, toast, some char. Full bodied, spritzy finish.

33cl @ bottle. Imperial coffee stout per il birrificio di Marnate. L’ho trovata davvero ottima, caffé, retrogusto amarognolo ma dolce predominante. Bevibilissima nonostante il 9% alcol.

Il faut le dire, déja, c’est beau, un beau liquide noir forme au dessus une trés jolie mousse, crémeuse, digne d’un cappuccino!!! ,des bulles minuscules bien compactes,à la vue déja, c’est bien réussi. On plonge le nose et c’est le café bien sur,massif, le café, mais pas que, c’est aussi fruité et cacao. Le liquide s’immisce entre les lèvres et trouve sa route , tout doux, la texture est équilibrée, pas huileuse ni trop légère,elle te fait encore penser à un café, puis une sorte de vanille, puis une belle acidité, ya pas à dire c’est un vrai café, l’amertume bien envoyée.Si les cardinaux se sont envoyés ça en guise de café pendant le conclave, ça a surement bien rigolé...

Bottle from Plonk (December 2013, cellared). Opaque black, large tan head settled to creamy thin layer, massive coffee nose and flavour, bit of vanilla, dry roast malt, chocolate, tobacco leaf, smooth creamy texture, boozy bitter finish. Nice.

Samma (137) - Fitzroy, AUSTRALIA - FEB 7, 2015
Bottle from 4Sensi, Milano,. A lot of coffee on the nose. Silky in mouth. Deep black look. Thinner than I expected, with the coffee overpowering the malt profile.

Fashawn (439) - Montesarchio, ITALY - DEC 23, 2014
Birra buona e particolare,ma non è certo eccelsa. Scura, schiuma abbondante e frizzante, color cappuccino. Caffè, cuio,tabacco e leggero mosto dell’uva alla bocca. In bocca caffè, legno cuoio, tanto tabacco e tocchi di vaniglia. A tratti sentori d’uva. Acida sulla fine,è un esperimento anche discreto. Ma non imperdibile. Carbonatazione media, bevuta facile, corpo medio.

Bov (10614) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - NOV 27, 2014
from Fork & Bottle - black beer yet pretty clear with a long lasting dark beige foam; strong aroma of cacao, coffee and tobacco; very roasted, full-bodied, some sweetness and a solid earthy bitterness, low carbonation, quite dry and long coffeish finish with lingering notes of tobacco

mai ci fu nome più azzeccato.. imperial COFFEE stout..si sente veramente tantissimo il caffè,sia nell’aroma che nel gusto..la birra è scura e ha una testa di schiuma beige a grana grossolana che persiste fino alla fine..l’aroma è dominato dal caffè,dalla frutta matura e dall’alcool..il gusto è troppo sbilanciato sul caffè e si sente forse troppo l’amaro del malto tostato così come l’alcool..finale però caldo e amaro..una buona birra,ma di certo non paragonabile ad altre imperial stout di ben altro livello.
