sic1314 (3813) - Leiden, - NOV 18, 2012
Poured dark brown with a frothy tan head, aroma of sweet floral hops, caramel and roast malt. Creamy, medium body, flavour is milk chocolate and roast malt, dry aftertaste,

Roasted smokiness. Not particularly great. Pours dark black with thin head. Powerful taste throughout.

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 20, 2014
My Bottom Line:
This Stout attempt shares tobacco, earth and chocolate while light acidity builds on the palate.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam tops the dark brown.
-The soft body is marred by the fruity acidity.
-Roastiness is lengthy.
-Harmony isn’t at play throughout...

On tap at Fiebre de Malta, Mexico City.

kapusil (646) - HUNGARY - NOV 13, 2014
0.355l bottle. Black body, foamy light brown head. Very fruity aroma (dark fruits) with notes of chocolate, cherries and vanilla. Taste reflects the aroma. Chocolate, dark fruits, cherries and vanilla again. Somewhat weak in the body but it’s nice.

cervezadrinker (17) - MEXICO - NOV 4, 2014
bottle 355 mL, poured in pint, deep black beer, nice medium tanned head that lingers for a bit, hoppy and chocolate aroma. tastes of malts with lots of roasty chocolate and coffee, well ballanced with the bitter though quite drinkable ending, very surprised with this cause is really nice and also quite cheap, although due the ABV and the taste id think is more a porter than a imperial, very tasty anyway, will repeat without a doubt

Giochaurand (93) - FINLAND - AUG 24, 2014
335ml bottle. Chilled. Pours pitch black with a medium head. Smells of roasted malts, coffee and dark chocolate. Tastes of sweet malts, a bit of balanced trate of hops and alcohol.

Percy0103 (203) - MEXICO - JUN 25, 2014
Bottle, 355ml. A pitch black beer with a creamy big brown head. Aroma is of chocolate and roasted malts. Taste is what I expected from the aroma: chocolate, roasted malts and coffee, lots of coffee. It is also very heavy and bitter. Good Imperial Stout.

BlackHaddock (4150) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2014
355ml Bottle drank inside the Cruise Ship Terminal area of Puerto Vallarta on 23rd March 2014. Impressed, smooth Stout in looks, aroma and taste. Over roasted/toasted malts rule the roost, with hints of dark chocolate and coffee within both the nose and flavour. A pleasant surprise to finish the day off before rejoining the ship (the Minerva ITA was also a lovely surprise).

AgentAle (796) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 30, 2014
Aroma is roasty with sweet malt and caramel notes. Taste is a malt body that finishes flatly. Hop additions lend to a fairly bland bitterness. Body is an almost black amber. Head is pearl with medium retention.

kraddel (3630) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - MAR 31, 2014
Bottle Pours dark brown . No foam at all , no matter how hard you try . Smell is heavy , thick , and dark . Bitter, dark chocolate . Taste is surprisingly weak . Bitter, some chocolate, some faded malts ( ’Black ’ malts ) . Very dissapointing after the scent ..

Masterkush7 (568) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 19, 2014
Very dark brown, very small and fully diminishing light brown head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, coffee and some caramel, roasted malt and some oat. Body is medium, malty and sweetish, coffee and some oat with roasted malt. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, coffee and some roasted malt. Sweetish, medium- bodied stout with coffee – OK, but nothing special.
