Black colour, cocoa colour. Aroma of coffee, licorice, dark chocolate, soy sauce, roasted malts and toffee. Taste is light to medium sweet, light bitter, very umami forward. Medium to full body, oily texture, very soft carbonation. Very interesting imperial stout.

The smell isn’t that attract me but after I tasted it. I have to admit though. It’s really good! I would have it any days if I’m at any craft beer bar ^_^

karpik (521) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - DEC 3, 2015
Caffè latte, vanilla and chocolate aroma. Pours pitch black, oily with brown head, not very stable. Taste is bittersweet, nicely balanced between milk chocolate, vanilla shake at the beginning and roasty bitter finish. Body is full. Very good sipper.

Couleur d’un noir profond avec une mousse brune foncee assez resistante pour une a ce niveau d’alcool. Je ne sais pas cb de temps a cette bouteillr mais pour etre un fan de stout je suis assez decu de ses saveurs. L’alcool ressort enormement avec des saveur mi chocolater et mi grain griller-cendre de cigarette. Il va falloir que je la ressai surement qu’elle avait plusieurs annees...

Panzerfaust (784) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - NOV 29, 2015
330 ml bottle from Gallagher’s Beer World/El Irlandés. Pours an impenetrable jet black color with an almost non-existent light brown head whose traces disappear quickly leaving the tiniest of lacings. Aroma is gorgeous, heavily malty and bold. Notes of plums, prunes, oak, roasted grains, whole-grain dark bread, caramel, molasses and brown sugar. Moderate alcoholic notes that add heaviness and some rhubarb to mix up and add complexity. Some earthy touches. Almost /Dubbel Quad like hybrid. The lack of head dampens a little bit the enticing nose. Amazing taste, very intense, sweet with some umami touches. Strong sugary roastiness provides caramel and molasses flavors with some traces of dark fruits. Some additional flavors include dark olives and soy sauce in fair amounts. Mild woody notes and some booze round up nicely this Imperial Stout. It’s like a roasty Quadrupel. Big body with a fine dense oily texture. Low carbonation, quite a lot of alcohol character. Definitely a massive brew to sip slowly. Seems like the Barrel Aged version mellows the sweetness a little bit and incorporates some extra hints of complexity. This regular version is still wonderful.

Damn. Pours like thick crude. The kind of stout that makes you contemplate life and believe in a higher power. Best kept for yourself.
