Pitch black and oily with dark, rapidly disappearing head. Amazing and rich aroma: Belgian pralines, dark chocolate, freshly roasted coffee as well as dates, cherries, fruity notes, bit of licorice and some burnt flavours. Harsh bitterness and pleasant sweetness together. Very long aftertaste. Maybe too much alcohol can be smelled but well, it’s more than 12 ABV, and probably it just need the touch of time to balance out. Great beer!

adasko (1927) - Poznan, POLAND - JAN 12, 2016
Pitch black beer, non-transparent with rather poor head which reduces itself almost immediately to just a ring. In aroma awesome rum notes, a lot of chocolate, a bit of coffee, roasted, toasted notes as well. Aroma is very deep, very well balanced with just a slight touch of alcohol which is quite amazing since is 12,12% abv beer. In taste it never ends. The beginning is smooth and calm full of delicate chocolate notes. But as it’s heading to an end it’s starting to be very aggressive, harsh - much more dry and bitter. The aftertaste never ends. It just stays in your mouth with bitter coffee flavors for ever. Alcohol only pleasantly warms the stomach. It really is an awesome beer. Can’t wait to try BA versions.

Kosmokrator (849) - ITALY - DEC 31, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2016 Imperial stout robusta e corposa, nera, caffettosa, profumata, indomabile. Fortissime note cioccolatose e golose accompagnano verso un finale amarognolo, rotondo, pulito e persistente, con sentori di tostato, liquirizia e luppolo. Grandiosa!!

On Tap at Hair of the Dog, during their Star Wars event so this was the Empire beer very fitting rep for the Imperials. Pours black like tar with light and dark two toned head, taste of licorice and soy with some dark chocolate and vanilla, a master piece and will rule the galaxy.

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 ^_^
