3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. Iíve heard all the rumors, so it was time to try the real thing. Right away I was blown away by the mouthfeel -- itís slick, smooth, and full. However, there was a tangy, fruity taste that seemed out of place. The more I drank, the more I honed in what the off-flavor was: cherry cough syrup. There was a distinct tart cherry flavor that, when it was combined with the booze, just made the whole thing taste like Robitussin. Promising beer, but held back by that off flavor.

Quite huge brew. Mild cocoa, coffee, coffee beans on nose, more distinct in taste, decent roasted malt profile, coffee again, somewhat bit harsh, but very well balanced. Quite awesome

Bottle from beer club. Wow, tons of espresso aroma and taste along with roasted malts and smoke. Poured dark black with medium dark brown head. A little heavy on the IBUs for me, but not bad.

Can from The Beerhive. Black body with a medium head. Good lacing. Aroma of espresso, hazelnut and Marmite. Flavour of rust, coffee, chocolate and cocoa powder. Medium to full body with a gloopy, chewy mouthfeel. Soft fizz. Quite bitter for an Imperial IPA. A quality beer.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
This bottle is very fresh: bottled on 15th februar 2016: Pours black oily color, clear, with creamy beige or light brown long lasting head. Aroma: intense roasted malts aroma, with notes of coffee, coffee, coffee...molasses. Vanilla, cocoa beans, bittersweet chocolate, supported with hop aroma, which takes on pine, some dark fruits.
Flavor: intense dark and roasted malts flavor; when it wams up you can detect espresso coffee, vanilla nibs, molasses, toffee, bittersweet dark and milk chocolate, hazelnuts, cocoa powder, cinnamon, cacao nibs, hint of port wine. It is so full and creamy, that high ibu is practically hidden and it impossible to detect notes of hops. But still; finish is slightly dry and bitter. Bitterness lingers in aftertaste. Body is full, creamy, oily, texture is silky soft, carbonation is low. Great beer. Luckly one bottle I have in cellar for aging. This beer have very good potentials for that.
