leghorn99 (163) - Livorno, ITALY - OCT 29, 2015
Versa di colore nero, profondo, scurissimo, impenetrabile; una bella schiuma abbondante, marrone, cremosa, dall’ottima ritenzione che si riduce ad un bel cappello permanente. Aroma possente, gradevole ed elegante; profumo di cioccolato, malto torrefatto e caffè riempono le narici, contornati da sottili odori speziati e scorza d’arancia. Al palato è molto cremosa e lussereggiante, una buon carbonazione ed un corpo medio-pieno. Il gusto è prevalentemente di cioccolato fondente, malto tostato, caramello, caffé, melassa, leggero affumicato, scorza d’arancia. L’alcol è poco percettibile e non scalda più di tanto. Un’ottima Imperial Porter; gustosa, dal sapore robusto e facile da bere.

wvhoran (455) - Tasmania, - AUG 11, 2015
Draught at Mikkeller Bangkok. Black colour with a small brown head. The aroma is dark roasted malt, hops, some spice, chocolate. Nice mouthfeel, the flavour is initially sweet with dark chocolate, but finishes very ashy, rather burnt, some hop character, the a shines dominates.

Gluepot (239) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 10, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2015 Rich, chocolate/tan head on a deep brown body. An appealing nose of unsweetened chocolate and coffee. This beer plays more like a stout or a rich porter than a holiday ale, but I am not complaining. The taste is balanced, featuring slightly bitter, unsweetened chocolate ( cocoa-like) and roasted coffee. Sub elements include a hint of nutmeg, vanilla and a touch of cream. The body is like a rich porter as well, with medium carbonation. The taste sustains well featuring the roasted coffee and cocoa elements. Unusually dry profile for a chocolate/coffee beer. A pleasure to sip.

DuffMan (8316) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 26, 2015
Bottle, best before August 2018, so I think I’m good! Very dark brown pour, lively generous tan head. Bitter chocolate and burnt malt, scorched coffee beans, hints of aniseed, bitter finish.

mgajdaczewa (1123) - Katowice, POLAND - FEB 23, 2015
W aromacie likier czekoladowy z palonym ziarnem, mimo stosunkowo niewielkiego alko unosi się on w powietrzu, co fajne nie jest, ale całokształtu nie psuje. W smaku półpełne, bardzo ziarniste, sporo czekolady deserowej, lekka kawa, likierowość, w smaku alkohol lepiej ukryty niż w aromacie. Dobre piwo.

ABS (763) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 15, 2015
Black, hints of dark brown on the edges. Small beige to light brown head. Raisin, prune, dried fruit, some vanilla, some smoke, dark chocolate and espresso flavour. Sweet and bitter. Full body. Soft carbonation. Alcohol is present. Not bad, but not a favourite either.

thegreenrooster (3638) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 14, 2015
Pour is a black with a tan head. Aroma is roast malt and some chicory char. Flavor is more of the dark roasted malt with a bit of wood smoke and bitter bakers chocolate. No sweet chocolate here, this is all about the roasted malt and strong charred aftertaste.
