PsychoGunnar (200) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 11, 2014
Ravenblack with brownish yellow foam, smells of campfires, liquorice, coffee and some cream. Overpowering taste with a lot of liquorice, soy, tar and coal. The alcohol is a bit obnoxious, and could be more balanced - this is the only thing I don’t like about this.

chribban (185) - SWEDEN - OCT 8, 2014
Very dark, almoust black, engine oil with just a little head that’s on the top like golden-brown whipped cream.

Nose: Coffee, toffee, roasted malt, dark chocolate, mocha, leather, kakao and dark syrup. Almoust a little sour nose.

Taste: Wow! This is f-ing awesome! Sweet coffee, oatmeal, brownies, boubon , vanilla, red berries and dried fruit.

Mouth: Large complex body with smooth, silky taste. Very soft carbonation.

This is almoust a perfect stout. I’m glad I bought 7 bottles (six to cellar).

migajos (194) - Warsaw, POLAND - OCT 2, 2014
On tap at Chmielarnia, Warsaw. Appearance almost black with brown, creamy head. Aroma: vanilla, some cocoa, dark chocolate. Texture very smooth. Taste a bit on a sweet side. Like a fantastic ballanced desert. Full bodied, creamy, chocolaty, again vanilla. One of the best Imperial Stouts I’ve had.

slowrunner77 (6031) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 2, 2014
"BIG sweet aroma...raisinettes, milk chocolate, a little alcohol, chocolate, a touch of hops, chocolate, and a touch of coffee and roasted malts. pretty dark with a nice dark head. smooth body, but you can detect the alcohol a tad more than some of the stronger IRSs I’ve had. Flavor is smooth, and very good, though leaning towards sweet. very nice brew."

Lore (1176) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 27, 2014
deep dark brown colour and half inch of dense dark brown head; aroma of roasted coffee, coffee liqueur, some chocolate and alcoholic notes; taste is dominated by roasted bitterness with coffee, dark chocolate, hints of herbal notes and minimal earthiness; really good imperial stout

kappldav123 (5114) - GERMANY - SEP 19, 2014
Tap at CBC 2014. Beer in the glass deep black, small head. Heavy malty aroma with notes of coffee. Starts heavy malty, notes of coffee and some chocolate, not too bitter. Finish bit earthy, dry-malty, light spicy. Quite drinkable for its strength.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2014
Fad, Taphouse. Sort, fed, luftigt beige skum med lav holdbarhed. Fyldig, sød, fed, ristet, kaffe, choko, bitter, the lot - og måske lige lidt for meget af det hele og uden det unikke twist, der hæver den over det gode håndværk, den utvivlsomt er.
