3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown, small coffee-like head, coffee aroma, bitter but with lots of malts. Roasted malts, coffee, bitter chocolate, alcohol is hidden but this beer stillhas a kind of bulky, strong feeling.

Amazing brew @ Hopfanatic Pub! Big, bold, fresh and easy drikking for a 12% imperial stout. Really love this one!

On tap - Well, well, wont be my favourite but pretty decent one. Deep hazy black with very dark brown small head, leaving small lacing. Aroma is full: roasted malts, caramel, coffee hint of dark choco.
Taste was smooth, full bodied beast, alcohol is well hidden.
Highly concentrated stuff.

0,33l bottle. Night-dark, even the foam is darkbrown. There isn’t any track of sweetness, first of all coffee than smoke and hoppy taste you can feel. Full-bodied beer, its high alcohol content just coloures this stout. Very nice but too expensive.

great dark colour; dark chocolate with significant alcoholic taste; great stout, although a bit too expensive, which decreases value for money rate

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
13/11 A 0.5 l bottle courtesy of Marko, thanks for sharing! It poured pitch black body with cascading brown head that settled on medium size. Decent IS aroma, coffee, chocolate, raisins, strong alcohol note. Mostly bitter flavor, sweet chocolate at first, but going rapidly to bitter coffee and dark chocolate liquor sweets. Chicory and some herbal notes were present as well. Medium to full in body with alcohol smoothly hidden. Long finish, bitterish and warming, mostly reminiscent of flavor. A quite good imperial stout, although far from anything that would top the style.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.33l bottle brought from Budapest by a friend who got it from another friend who got it for mi at Armando’s place :D. Anyway, thanks! Shared with heavy and ogivlado. Big expectations for this one after having tasted Bitterfly, but hey, the styles are quite opposite to each other, who knows what would end up. Luckily, the expectations were mostly met. Poured an opaque extremely dark brown body with a dark tan/brown head, medium sized that rose with a beautiful cascading effect. Well done! The aroma starts with raisins, light soy sauce, hmm... respectable, vague alcohol, dark malt. Hmmm.. candy something. The taste has a soft dark malt background, chocolate and vague coffee. Roasty bitterness up front, herbal.notes that got in there from the hops. Light notes of cappuccino. Lovely soft mouthfeel. Nougat? Some alcohol attack. Very respectable, not bad at all.

Bottle from Hungary thanks to my friend Laszlo! Served in a tulip. Pours an opaque black with a thick brown head. Aroma: Really nice mixture of malt, coffee, chocolate. Hints of grapes, bread, licorice. Palate: thick bodied, creamy, really long finish, fairly fizzy. Taste: fairly sweet, becoming slightly bitter in the finish. Really really well balanced.
