Chuckaduck (674) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - JAN 8, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2013 Pours black with a graham cracker head. Aroma is vanilla, solvent, herbs, spice, and something nice that I can’t quite place. Taste is dark fruit, very hoppy and malty, incredibly complex with loads of coffee; coffee for days. Super strong and incredibly delicious and drinkable. An absolutely excellent stout.

Svart färg med kaffe bärnstenskrona. Väldigt söt rostad doft. Stärkande söt balanserad alkohol smak med massa bitter kaffe i eftersmaken. Även choklad. Alkoholen sticker dock ut betydligt. Tur man redan är full. Haha! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

androman (719) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - APR 19, 2015
37.5cl bottle at home from Only Good Beer, Budapest. Body is pitch black, head is big, brownish, rocky, mostly lasting, excellent lacing. Nose is roasty, light smoky, flavor is heavy roasty, dark roasted coffee, dark chocolate, smoke, medicine, ash, toast, licorice. Heavy roasty bitter. Finish is long lasting extremely heavy bitter, roasty, hoppy and all shades of bitterness, alcohol is well covered, only appears in my stomach and later in my head. Full body, sticky, soft carbonation. Extreme dessert beer, quite sick, not too easy, great one.

Gorm (1606) - Sandnes, NORWAY - APR 17, 2015
A damn fine Imperial Stout! Black as midnight on a moonless night... Svart farve med mørk beige skum. Lukt av røykt og røstet malt, kaffe, sjokolade, bek og lakris. Smak av røykt og røstet malt, kaffe, sjokolade, unami, bek og lakris. Bittersøt avslutming. Almost Perfect Imperial. Tap @ Melkebaren.

Dark like crude oil colour with almost no creamy light brown head. Aroma and flavours of dark fruits, roasted coffe, roasted chocolate, tobacco and evident alcohol notice. Full, massive body, low carbonation, very complex, creamy taste, even more than Geore vs. Brian editions with concrete alcoholic note in finish. Aftertaste is sweet and at the same time liqueuric. Really complex beer which can easily kick your ass.

tricksta_p (1685) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - APR 7, 2015
Aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate, burnt rubber, liquorice, coffee. Flavour is moderate to medium sweet with a massive bitterness in the aftertaste. A bit boozy, but judging by the taste (as opposed to my hand-eye coordination) I wouldn’t have guessed it’s that high. Frankly, hard to rate because it’s such a beast of a beer. Lots of dark chocolate and burnt rubber. Massive.
