A strong coffee aroma with a good bit of chocolate. Black in color with little head that is dark brown. A powerful black coffee taste with a bitter finish. The roasted malts make a impact with a bit a vanilla flavor mixed in.

eelbasher (285) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 28, 2014
Bottle. Pours pitch black with a small dark brown head. Aromas of fresh roasted coffee, light coco, licorice, and a bunch of caramel. Flavor is smooth and full. Roasted malts, fudge, dry coffee bean, and a hint of soy sauce. Nice and drinkable for the abv. Good

jdb288 (353) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Fresh bottle. Aroma is vanilla, coffee, chocolate. Taste is malt-forward...more so than any stout I can remember. Overpowering sweetness without a strong coffee bitterness/roast to balance it out. Not my favorite of theirs.

kaser (2118) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Black oily pour from a bottle at fischmans. No head at all. Coffee malty aroma. Coffee bean and flat taste. But pretty good. Not my favorite if theirs

umich03jm (1582) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - JAN 21, 2014
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a very small head that fades to a small ring. Aroma is great. Coffee, vanilla, chocolate, cream, and a touch of caramel. Smells like coffee mixed with cocoa puffs. Taste is chocolate and vanilla with lots of light roasted coffee in the finish. Sweet and creamy. Thin to medium body. Aroma is better than the taste but still a pretty good coffee stout. Abv is well hidden.

From 12oz bottle. Pours almost black with almost no head. Aroma of dark coffee. Taste is heavy on coffee with a touch of malt, and vanilla coming through on the aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

javiercrasher (139) - Granada, SPAIN - JAN 12, 2014
Muy negra, con un ligera capa de espuma de color marrón claro que desaparece rápidamente. El aroma es exactamente a café molido y algo de toffee. Cuerpo medio y baja carbonatación. En boca hace principalmente presencia el café, y de fondo algo de chocolate, vainilla y barrica. El alcohol no se nota en ningún momento. Agradable y suave regusto. También reseñar que la etiqueta es brutal y que al menos en mi botella no hay fecha de caducidad ni lote por ningún sitio. Le falta cuerpo para ser una gran imperial stout, pero la relación calidad precio es sobresaliente.

Botella de 33 cl en casa 10-01-14 comprada en 1420 de León en noviembre 2013. Color negro intenso con espuma algo oscura que va desapareciendo poco a poco hasta casi por completo al final. Aromas a café torrefacto, tostado y algo quemado. Cuerpo ligero - medio bastante fácil de beber incluso para sus 8.9 vol. Solamente al final presenta un poco mas de cuerpo y densidad que la hacen mas ""masticable"". Sabores a café torrefacto bastante intensos con algo de chocolate y cacao ligeramente amargo.Regusto final de cafe tostado bastante agradable y no muy intenso. Bastante buena aunque un poco falta de cuerpo y de un poco mas de densidad que la haga un poco mas intensa.Para repetir sin problema claro, y esta ya es la segunda.
