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.

Black colour, minimal beige head. Definitely prominent coffee aroma with some hints of chocolate, caramel and bread . Full-bodied and a little sticky, low carbonation, a bit astringent bitter finish. Not bad but it’s not how an imperial stout should be for me (speaking of that, my favourite one is that made by Rogue).

Colore nero impenetrabile. Schiuma decisamente abbondante, un po’ grossolana e persistente. Al naso è abbastanza fresca. Si percepiscono spezie(liquirizia e anice), ma soprattutto caffè e un po’ di liquoroso. Appena si mette in bocca si sente del caffè, ma non abbondante, che poi lascia spazio a della liquirizia, che si percepisce ai lati della lingua, che poi a sua volta cede il posto nuovamente al caffè, un caffè più amaro. Il tutto è accompagnato da un leggerissimo acidulo e da lievi ma perfettamente percepibili sentori liquorosi. Se si lascia "riscaldare", si percepisce anche del cacao. Imperial stout interessante, ma che non fa rimanere a bocca aperta. Si sente troppo laschiuma in bocca e le boccinine sono tante e finissime, tanto che a volte danno un leggerissimo fastidio alla lingua. Comunque da provare.

Bottle. Pours a murky reddish-brown with a huge and creamy tan head. The aroma is heavy coffee but not necessarily of the nicest kind, as well as some spice and sweeter vanilla accents. The mouthfeel is medium with a sweet malt body, coffee, some yeast and spice. Good but not quite bringing it all together for me.

Deu (716) - Nantes, FRANCE - SEP 29, 2014
Very dark brown with a very thick beige head. Very good aroma with coffee, bitter chocolate, dark fruits, berries, and some fortified wine-like alcoholic notes. Very strong coffee taste, roasted malts, oat, some dough sourness. Long bitter finish, strong coffee aftertaste. Thick mouthfeel. Very good.

Birra dal colore nero impenetrabile... dall’aroma con spiccate note di tostato e caffè, come da stile... gusto molto intenso, si percepiscono anche in bocca il tostato il caffè e anche una nota di ciliegia matura (personalmente)...ottima birra

On tap @ Les Trois 8, Paris - FR. Color: really dark beer with no carbonation and medium ivory head. Smell: malt and roasted malt with back bread and coffee notes. Some brown sugar notes. Taste: caramel domination with coffee and roasted malt. Sugar and sweet sensation. Really complex but good equilibrium not so strong on mouth. Aftertaste: caramel and roasted malt. Coffee and sweet sensation. Really nice, amazing beer. You have a great flavor on mouth and there is no alcohol domination. Great job!!!

Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Thanks to Leighton. Clear dark brown beer, small bubbly pale tan head. Palate is light and dry. Dark malts with cheap candy chocolate. Dry coffee, somewhat earthy. Light dry finish. Not too bad.

Theydon_Bois (9084) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2014
Bottle split at Bruce’s Pad, thanks to LKS, 24/06/14. Extremely dark mahogany brown with a moderate tan swirl and spotting. Nose is coffee, mineral notes, light roast, chocolate, spice, light smoke. Taste comprises earthy tones, coffee rinse, brown bread, miolasses, chocolate, light dirt. Medium + body, fine carbonation, light boozey notes in the close. Solid enough impy, not top of class but an easy sipper.
