Christian (11217) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 21, 2014
On tap at Christian Firtal. Black with a small but lasting tan head. Big aroma of chocolate and coffee, with fruity notes, oak, vanilla and a little soy sauce. Sweetish, roasted flavour, with fruit and oak, and quite notable alcohol. Walks a thin line between overwhelming and too much...

reebtogi (4239) - 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 (394) - 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,

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 (2268) - 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.
