Ktwse (2229) - SWEDEN - MAY 2, 2013
On tap @ Mikkeller & Friends. Pours black with a finger of reddish tan head. Aroma of coffee, brown sugar, roasted malt, slightly subdued, could be because of low temperature. Taste is initial bitterness with a thick balancing brown sugar and alcohol sweetness before the long coffee bitter finish. Body is creamy and full with soft carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Christopsy (113) - SCOTLAND - MAY 2, 2013
Big, black, strong, and oily. This is a beautiful beer and there is no other way to say it. This is a whopper of a stout and there is not a bad thing I can say about it.

mcberko (7074) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 20, 2013
250mL bottle, courtesy of gramity (thanks a lot, Graham), pours jet black with a small brown head. Aroma is super roasted, with some black licorice, burnt dark fruits, hints of dark chocolate, and some sweet candied notes buried underneath. Flavour is very "dark" tasting, with rich dried dark fruits, roasted malt, some black licorice, and bitter dark chocolate. There is a good dose of hops in there as well which no doubt contribute to the astringency. Finishes on fairly astringent notes of bitter dark chocolate and black licorice. Extremely full-bodied and viscous, with a very sticky palate. Really well-balanced, without any jagged edges, and with loads of depth. Excellent stuff.

rodenbach99 (3259) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - APR 20, 2013
Bouteille de 250ml, c’est suffisant ! Bière brune foncée avec une texture huileuse au versement. La mousse est brune. Le nez est classique des gros Imperial Stout avec du chocolat, du café, de l’alcool et de la réglisse. En bouche l’alcool est bien présent mais ce n’est pas un problème. Les saveurs sont de crème à café, de chocolat et de réglisse noire. La finale est sur le chocolat et d’alcool.
