Block (1520) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Black pour with a tan head. Aroma of chocolate, caramel, and a bit of coffee. Very smooth. Light alcohol which doesnít come through at all.

olio (6521) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 22, 2014
33 cl bottle.
Pours black color with a small off-white head. Some salmiac on the nose, faint licorice, dark malts and distant chocolate notes. Licorice on the flavor, quite dominant actually, subtle orange notes too, a tad of caramel with cocoa on the finish. Decent sweet Foreign Stout.

Rated based on notes taken on 15 Apr 2012 -- This is a very nice Imperial Stout. Mouthfeel is light so it is dangerously easy to drink. Flavorful as well.

vipinvelp (2362) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - DEC 2, 2014
Dark black ruby with light brown lacing lasting foam head. Nice strong bitter coffee aroma, therefor bit disappointing taste, little weak. Nice coffee aftertaste. Good beer. (Velp 201412)

A great stout. I can hardly wait for my next bottle to fill a tall and frosty glass. :-) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lore (1218) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 21, 2014
Deep dark brown colour, huge creamy brown head, which lasts for several minutes; aroma of vanilla, mild roasted coffee, chocolate, herbal liqueur notes and hints of alcohol; taste is the same - excellent stout; it is life saving after a lot of industrial lagers I have tasted in the last couple of days

kirarockrocks (10) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 20, 2014
Nice smooth body, although its kind of light for a stout. Rich espresso/mocha flavors are really highlighted by a bottle-conditioned twang. Is there some vanilla in there? Remarkably drinkable for a stout with such a high alcohol content at 8.0%. Everytime I drink it, Iím impressed all over again. Iím going to say it: this is the best stout Iíve ever had.

Beautiful thick dark and syrupy, with a lively fizz for a stout. Itís full and long on the tongue. With a medium sweetness and medium bitter taste. Very tasty and would definitely buy again!

JorgeLee (1270) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2014
Bottle, picked up in an Indian food shop in Geneva. Pretty black, big beige head. Massive up front roastiness, with a delicious heavy sweet powerful roasty character. Fades to a more traditional coffee bitter drier finish. Full of flavour and very drinkable. Good label too.
