reebtogi (4213) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 23, 2014
12oz glass on tap at Beer Revolution in Edmonton pours black in color with a finger and a half of light brown head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is roasted grains and chocolate with some coffee notes. Taste is a roasted grain and bold hoppy bitterness with a chocolate malty sweetness. Medium to heavy body with nice carbonation leaving a pleasant sensation on the palate. Nicely balanced and well crafted brew that is worthy of a great sampling experience.

Vestergaard (377) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - SEP 23, 2014
Tap at Fermentoren Aarhus. Pours pitch black with a nice looking, small, creamy, brown head.Aroma has a bitter roast up front, that has something very dry and wooden to it. Chocolate and coffee i here as well, but this fresh wood really shines through. Taste has the same dry wood, but in a more mature way, and works more with the roast, that has plenty of coffee and a bit of ash. Some sweet, burned sugary notes, a bit of prunes and chocolate. Full body and a medium-low carbonation. Fine stout, that has some complexity to it, but lack a bit of excitement,

Revo. Airy, dusty, earthy, lighter licorice, thickness with a faint spice, oatmeal, ultra dark choco, toffee, orange rind, brandy, quite smooth but pure Mikkeller. Drank this pretty quick.

Tap as Man in the Moon BA. Black body with a small, lacing tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, wood, vanilla notes, bourbon, coffee and chocolate. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry, bitter and with alcohol. Medium to full bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A great Impy.

MarcoDL (2225) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2014
Amazing beer. Body of strongly roasted malt, with notes of cacao and coffee. Deep boozy taste of the barrel aging, but very balanced and not alcoholic. Sweet, but also bitter, it has it all.

giorgos_gtc (95) - GREECE - AUG 15, 2014
I found some very special and qualitive brownie especially in aroma and a little lighter in the taste. Excellent body and thin remaining foam. Excellent beer.

Draught at Mikkeller and Friends, Copenhagen
Black color with brown creamy head, persistent. A classic Imperial Stout Aroma (roasted malt and some chocolate) to which we add light glue this time. Roasted malt flavor (strong), with smooth and dry mouthfeel, liquorice, black chocolate, fairly salty, some smoke, a hint of blackberries; the final is quite ashy; not much sweetness left; strong resiny bitterness.
Very chaotic beer.
