neongolden (598) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 25, 2014
(On tap at Mikkeller Bar Stockholm, Oct 13 2014) Pours pitch black with a dark tan head that’s small but lingers with lace. Aroma has black coffee, pretty strongly roasted malts, smoky and almost peaty with some soy. Palate is rich and lightly sweet at first with bittersweet chocolate, black coffee, slight dark fruit, smoky roasted and charred dark malt, a bit of whiskey character and soy lingering. Dries towards the finish with bitter roast, coffee, smoke, light hops, lingering soy and malt sweetness. Thick and oily but not cloying with moderate carb. There is some booze but less than expected with a bit of heat. Just a lovely imperial, really big and really balanced as well, high flavour concentration.

ShivanDragon (1862) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - OCT 21, 2014
zwart met bruine kraag. aroma van volle chocolade, geroosterde mout, alcohol en wat biscuit. smaken zijn behoorlijk alchoholisch, maar ja dat is te verwachten met 12.12%, chocolade, gebrande- en geroosterde mouten, peper (pittig), metalig, romig, volmoutig, koffie, laurier, hout, vanille, redelijk zoet en wat espresso, lekker bier !

Tstamba (369) - Maryland, USA - OCT 13, 2014
From a bottle to a tulip. While smoking some ribs and a tri-tip. Black as night, no head, sparse lacing. Big nose full of robust coffee, smoke and dark chocolate. Balanced with toasted nuts, sweet toffee and smooth bitter slightly boozy finish. A huge and delicious RIS...

adnielsen (9533) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Bottle @ home ordered from CraftShack a while back. Pours a deep black appearance with a very thin dark brown head that dissipates instantly. Somewhat smoky, char/tar, very roasty, dark chocolate aroma that is very earthy and has a bit of booze even served quite cold. Mouth feel is a bit goopy but not bad. Moderate plus sweetness and bitterness. Booze is pretty well hidden. Chocolate oatmeal cookie flavor with some ashy smoke. Smooth. Pretty fucking tasty.
