Melker (210) - Varberg, - SEP 9, 2013
Almost black and almost no head, just a tiny 1 mm dark brown head when i poured it hard. Aroma of berries, milk chocolate, really dark coffee, tobacco and caramel. Taste is roasted malt, chocolate, vanilla, bitter coffee. Just a little bit sweet, ends somewhat dry and bitter. Sticky and thick texture.

Lukasmh (180) - Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2014
Bottle. Pours thick pitch black with dense dark brown one finger head. Settles nicely and some lacing. Aroma is roasty coffee, hint of acid espresso, chocolate, roasted malts and I do catch a tiny subtle smoke. And off course sweet vanilla. Taste is rich and sweet. Chocolate and roasted malts. Bitter roasty coffee. The vanilla is not the head figure. Body is full and really smooth and has some carbonation. Finish some dry wood. Extremely well hidden alcohol yet warming, but had expected more vanilla.

rouhlas (199) - GREECE - OCT 24, 2014
330 ml bottle at home. Black color with very nice creamy beige-brown head. Aroma is roasted malty, full of spicy vanilla especially in the beginning, sweet chocolate notes, some coffee too. Taste is sweet and bitter, like the aroma, spicy vanilla with chocolate and coffee again. Medium to full body almost creamy with soft carbonation and nice bitter and spicy finish with a light touch of warming alcohol. Generally alcohol is well hidden.

tectactoe (2042) - Michigan, USA - OCT 23, 2014
Bottle: Thanks, Jason. Oily black with a very small bit of dark brown near the top. Tan foam resides quickly to a thin film & semi-chunky collar. Aroma of rich dark cocoa, fudge, smooth vanilla, creamy oats, a small touch of smoke & a little bit of roasty char. Very slight oatmeal cookie aroma with a bit of ashiness & booziness behind it. Flavor is pretty complex; lots of roasted malts, lightly burnt caramel & brown sugar, a touch of anise, oatmeal cookie, hints of vanilla, some moderately dry coffee notes, a slight booziness, & a super rich, dark chocolate fudgy finish. Robust, thick mouth feel. Tasty ass stout.

wvhoran (304) - Tasmania, - OCT 21, 2014
Bottle. Pours totally black with a small, diminishing brown head. The aroma is full of vanilla with some milky chocolate notes, an impression of rhubarb and custard. The flavour is sweet chocolate, vanilla, sweet dark malt, with a long finish of roast malt and hard roasted coffee. Thick body. Possibly a love or hate beer--I’m a lover.

esp0r (2008) - NORWAY - OCT 19, 2014
Bottle shared with Simonsen
Pours dark, black in glass, thin tanned head. Smell of coffee, ice cream,dark malts and vanilla. Medium sweet, mocca coffee, vanilla, playful with a touch of chocolate. Finishes off with a moderate bitter tail of coffee. I had very high expectations, so it was a bit of a letdown on me. Still, i have to say this is a damn good beer.

Well, well, well. It’s simply perfect imperial stout with a bunch of coffee, chocolate and tobacco aroma, great taste and marvelous look. Definitely worth trying.

visionthing (2813) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2014
33cl bottle at Pudel, Tallinn. Pours black like motor oil and not much head to be seen. Rasty aroma with lots of coffee and dark chocolate. Some dark bready notes, hints of dark berries, wood and vanilla. Sweet, but very well balanced. Full bodied eith a slightly sirupy mouth feel. Delicious stuff! Excellent sipper for the autumn.

OMG.... what an awesome beer. Smells of chocolate, Vanilla, coffee and dark fruit... Taste is awesome, texture is creamy. Chocolate, Coffee, Vanilla and hints of liqorice. Sweet....You do feel the alcohol a bit but it wears off after a few sips... Little bitter aftertaste. Really, really good!!! Will absolutely buy again....
