The coffee lover’s consummate beer. Brewed with an abundance of flaked oats, bitter and imported chocolates and two types of coffee, this stout has an intense fresh-roasted java nose topped with a frothy, cinnamon-colored head that goes forever.

Pitch black appearance with little head. Tastes of coffee, metal, dark chocolate, dark cocoa and chili. Heavy body, low carbonation and a finish of coffee and metal. Fantastic aroma, metallic taste.

Samuel214 (606) - SWEDEN - OCT 23, 2016
Flaska från SB. Kolsvart, tjusig och riktigt tjock vätska med tunt moccafärgat skum som lämnar rester längs sidorna. Stor choklad- och kaffearom tillsammans med krämig toffee, saltlakrits och lite svarta vinbär en bit längre bak. Riktigt stor, fyllig och len kropp. Långt ifrån en lättviktar-öl. I smaken är det stora rostade toner, kaffe och choklad som växer till sig. Avslutas i en stor kaffebeska och bittra toner från kakao och riktigt mörk choklad. Lägger sig som en hinna i munnen och hänger kvar länge.

fillepolo (637) - SWEDEN - OCT 21, 2016
Bottle from systembolaget. Pours a dark colour beer with a creamy brown colour. Roasted malts with coffee, chocolate beautifully mixed with hints of vanilla and hazelnut. Not only a breakfast beer but also a wonderful autumn beer. Dry velvety finish

LLaurin (323) - Motala, SWEDEN - OCT 20, 2016
Heavy nose with lots of fresh brewed coffee and some bitterness. Colour is dark almost quite black. Taste is rich but still a little weak. Pumpernickel and some rye bread in the taste. Palate is a little flat but still impressive but it remains a good impression.

Cajun (416) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - OCT 17, 2016
*400th rating* - Bottle - Pours black with tan head. Aroma of coffee, dark bread, chocolate, and a hint of refrigerated flowers. Flavors of COFFEE, baker’s chocolate, burnt chocolate muffin, hops in center and finish. Definitely get more coffee than other Imperial Stouts. Dry bitter, bakers chocolate aftertaste. C’est bon!
