4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle from Cparles. Thanks man! Well finally... I love coffe I love beer and when the two collide it makes me very happy needless to say I’ve been wanting to try this for a while. Black viscous pour, with just a smigen of medium tan head. Aroma is full of coffee, lots of roast, a touch of vanilla some booze. Taste is sligty sweet at first and then opens up with lots of roast, coffee and a little bit of heat that lingers on the tongue. Extremely well balanced. Great Stuff.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Stone’s beer garden...a bit pricey at $14, jeez. Pours pitch black with an ever so small brown head. Chocolate, dark fruits, figs, raisins, earthy coffee, molasses. Flavor follows with big chocolate covered fruits and raisins, some thick espresso. Some latose sweetness. More dark fruits than I expected. Big thick viscous mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Good stuff.

Pour is as dark as the night and topped by a "milk chocolate" head. Retention is somewhat good, lacing is excellent. Aroma is really roasty and you can feel a lot of alcohol too. Taste is sweet but balanced by a lot of roasted malt that provide a medium level of bitterness. Some nice coffee impressions. Some nice green hops can be savored, too. Mouthfeel is silky, carbonation medium. Body is full. Great!

Duft av lakris og vanilje. Dy mørk farge, nesten sort. Lite skum, litt langs kant. God fyldig smak av lakris, kaffe og mørk sjokolade. Nydelig.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle from Vinmonopolet. Tiny medium brown head. Pitch black body. Aroma of coffee, toasted bread and burned wood. Hits the mouth with an explosive mixture of tastes which backs up the aroma nicely. Malt sweetness, bitter aftertaste, almost sour. The high ABV is pretty well hidden.

Opaque black,with low carb and very thin head from co2 bubbles. Leaves light swirly cloud on top of a sea of blackness.Slight lace
Aroma is strongly minerally berries dark roast,dark chocolate. Taste is smooth slick rich roast chocolate dark berry,minerally roast malt,more roast in finish with strong dark chocolate cocoa flavor. Cherry.Herbal earthy hops. The coffee is really melded into this strong imperial stout-its a great stout,its main thing seems that its really minerally to me and I think that is how the coffee is interpretated for me along with dark berry notes.Tobacco. Herbal eatthy bitter.
