Teku glass. Pitch black with dark brown, medium head (one finger) with low retention, high viscosity, low lacing. First of all strong, distinctive fresh brew coffee aroma, roasted malts, low dark fruits esters - prunes, raisins, hint of vanilla aroma, also some dark chocolate, medium hop aroma, alcohol character noticable as coffee liqueur. Very rich. High roasted dark malts falvors - deep coffee flavour, pretty lot of dark chocolate, medium to medium-high bitterness, salty, a little bit tarry, low dark fruit esters. I tastes like it was brew with coffee. Alcohol strenght is evident, but not interfere with flavors. Burnt, roasty and medium bitter aftertaste. Full body. Oily texture. Low carbonation. Gentle alcohol warmth. In overall really good and balanced imperial stout. Subjectively I really do like coffee flavors, so it’s ideal for coffee geeks. Low burnt character makes it really drinkable.

fajry (205) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 19, 2014
Farba čierna, po okrajoch tmavo hnedá - ako motorový olej. Pena hnedá, ktorá však rýchlo opadla, no na okrajoch zostávali stále náznaky peny. Vo voni cítit praženú kávu, sladkú varenú čokoládu, jemne sušené hrozienka. Chuť jemne sladká, opäť cítiť pražený slad, zalievanú kávu. Veľmi príjemné pitie.

SimonTja (99) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 18, 2014
Black with brown head. aroma is coffee, rye bread, licorice. Taste is very licorice, very good balance between coffee, and quite weak roastiness, quite earthy, and some faint leather, wood and smoke inputs, alcohol is completely hidden, only complaint is that carbonation was a bit high, this is super solid and really well made and incredibly balanced out.

The tagline is actually correct, this beer gives you a punch in the face. A strong hit of dark roasted malt and imperial stoutness. Amazing.

czar (3812) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 8, 2014
pours thick oily very dark brown, if not black, with a small yet reviving dark crema, some lacing. burnt malts, burnt hazelnuts, stovetop italian espresso coffee - almost like tasting the crema only, licorice, spices, pine, dry molasses. moderate carboantion, medium to full body - oily, yet never sticky, medium long to long bitter coffee-piney finish. big and warming yet a bit harsh. still.. good stuff. can’t wait to try BA declensions.

BMMillsy (1153) - Florida, USA - APR 6, 2014
Bottle from Tipples. Pours pitch black with a super creamy dark brown head that lightens up as it grows. Aroma of lots of chocolate sauce, a hint of anise, and mild roastiness. Flavor is a massive hit of bittersweet chocolate sauce, a good bit of bitter roast to balance, a little smoke, and a slight twinge of anise. Huge thick viscous mouthfeel, low to medium carbonation, sticky. This is one of the best non-BA stouts I have had. Awesome stuff.
