wvhoran (369) - Tasmania, - OCT 8, 2014
Bottle. Pours black with a large and lasting tan head. Aroma is unimpressive: liquorice, burnt malt. Flavour is sweet liquorice, metallic molasses, with a strong burnt and bitter finish, long-lasting. Strong carbonation. Some good qualities.

BenOver (112) - SLOVENIA - SEP 30, 2014
Pours dark with a lot if aggressive head, that slowly diminiahes. Smell is strong and slightly sour, gentle coffe notes. Taste is roasted, with a gentle coffee aftertaste, that turna in to a smooth sensation. A good balanced beer, slightly too strong on the first sip.

Fashawn (190) - Montesarchio, ITALY - SEP 22, 2014
Versione quasi "imperiale" della classica stout, sembra coca cola alla vista, con una bella schiuma meno persistente rispetto alla normale stout in lattina. Aroma normale, malto tostato, orzo torrefatto. Al sapore lo stesso, a volte l’orzo non trova alcun contrasto. Il corpo è buono, carbonatazione medio bassa, ma l’eccessivo amaro non ha alcun sapore specifico. Birra normale.

HammerTroll (590) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 14, 2014
Pitch black, medium sized tan head. Milk chocolate aroma, some vanilla and sugar. Alcohol is barely noticeable. Creamy, medium body, lively carbonation. The more I drink it, the less chocolate i feel, and sugar is more dominant.
(Pivoljub 0,33l bottle)

nathanvc (65) - Brugge, BELGIUM - SEP 13, 2014
It pours dark brown and cloudy with a minimal tan head (less prominent than with an average Guinness). Aroma of yeast, barley, chocolate and roasted coffee. Medium carbonation but fizzy on the tongue. Tastes medium sweet with bitter tones towards the finish. Alcohol is noticeable. Stout with character.

Better than Black Lager. Not as good as Extra Stout, Foreign Extra Stout, or Draught. October 16th, 2013.

angel77 (1093) - oviedo, SPAIN - AUG 29, 2014
Botella de 33 cl de el c. Ingles, tomada en junio de 1999. fecha cons pref para antes 18-07-2000. lote 10. Cuerpo medio de 8 vol y buena sensación alcohólica. Color negro con espuma oscura. Aromas y sabores de maltas tostadas y quemadas con ligeros toques afrutados y dulces, acabando con un ligero amargor. Bastante buena. Después de tanto tiempo se merece repetirla cuanto antes.

guiroul33 (110) - Bordeaux, FRANCE - AUG 28, 2014
Black color with tan foam. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, wood. Bitter coffee taste, soft carbonation, bitter finish. More complex and more "belgian" than the normal one. A very good stout!
