bhensonb (12134) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 16, 2010
Bottle from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours very black with a fizzy tan head. Smells like coffee. Strong, but not espresso. Full bodied. Flavor is strongly coffee - even espresso - but there’s a sweet component. A dark sweet component. Treacle? Not bitter, except for coffee bitter. Very nice stuff.

8.5oz bottle thanks to Nick3 on BA. Pours just about black with a small light tan head. The aroma is coffee, sugar, roast, and chocolate, with booziness evident. The flavor is great. Very sweet, but a great sipper. Big coffee notes with table sugar, caramel, spices, and chocolate. Medium-full bodied and slick on the mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Really nice stuff for what it is, balanced if intense. A good dessert beer, like a fine port. Very complex.

MissouriBrent (122) - Missouri, USA - DEC 13, 2010
Sweet dark malt and alcohol in the aroma. Some coffee and burnt sugar aromas. Pitch black with small head. Sweet and creamy. The cofee and the sugar work well in this beer. It is on the sweet side, but it reminds me of an espresso with a full pack of raw sugar. Even though the coffee is very evident it is not overwhelming. The aftertaste is lingering toasty sweetness. Delicious beer and surprisingly easy drinking considering its strength.

hallinghansen (2273) - Odense S, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2010
Bottle @ Odense tasting. Black body with a small brown head. Aroma is espresso coffee, cigar, roasted malt, chocolate and smoke. Flavor is espresso with lots of sugar, roasted malt. The sugar is almost to overwhelming.

JohnnyJ (4807) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 11, 2010
Bottle. Dark brown pour, very small, thin tan head. Chocolate, heavy brown sugar, notes of coffee and dark fruit. A very sweet, heavy, and hot imperial stout. I am not a big fan.

saxo (14455) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 11, 2010
Bottle at fonefan tasting. Nice head with good duration. Color is black. Aroma and taste are rich coffee, roast malt, citrus, chocolate and hops. Quite extreme.

MiP (14046) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 11, 2010
Bottle, 15.5%. Grassy hop aroma. Almost black colour, quite cloudy. The flavour is very sweet. Has a good roasted note, hint of liquorice, lots of sugar. Good, but too sweet. Too much sugar, gets sickly.

minch25 (577) - Medford, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 7, 2010
Dark muddy brown, slightly watery reddish edges, light head. Unmistakeable aroma of brewed coffee, the good kind, and a rich sweetness, a little heat. Flavor is immediately quite sweet, with some heat up front. Coffee effects come later, upon swallowing. Remarkably smooth, and creamy texturally. Quite the BAMF imperial stout. Despite the Americans’ courageous attempts, most don’t reach the prize fighting levels this one does. Is it worth $15+ for 250ml? That’s a very good question..
