abemorsten (2767) - Mosterøy, - JAN 28, 2013
Shared 0,25 l bottle at Cardinal. Black with a dense small brown head leaving excellent lacing. Roasted wooden creamy vanilla raisin light aceton aroma. Roasted, light acidic, and a little thin body.

ERB92 (300) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 12, 2014
Coffee, berries, dark chocolate, licorice, olive oil and leather in the aroma. Black with a brown head. Medium to heavy sweet and medium bitter. Full body with a soft carbonation. Overall a beautiful Imperial Stout, coffee and licorice most dominant in the flavour and with some nice warming alcohol in the back.

RasmusOtt (1112) - Aalborg, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2014
Pours pitch black with a very small brown head. Aroma of.... olives? and chorizo? Roasted malts, smokey notes, coffee, olive oil, grains, italian spices - what is going on here? Taste is a bit more normal. Some roasted moats, some barrel quality, a slight alcoholic note, liquorice and some coffee. This was pretty strange haha, But yearh!

Vestergaard (368) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2014
25 cl bottle. Pours pitch black with a dark brown, fizzy head. Aroma has dark, roasted malts, salt, olives, single malt whiskey, soap, olive oil, chorizo. Shit, i’m getting some weird stuff here. Taste has a sugary, fruity sweetness up front, brown, burned sugar, a dry wooden bitterness, a slight smoke, and again this old olive oil. A little chocolate and a little licorice. Decent, full body, and medium high carbonation. An odd experience, but still pretty good.

Klimaet (154) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2014
Botlte shared with vestergaard and rasmusott. Thanks guise. Pours pitch black with a medium mocha head. Aromas of coffee, bourbon, olives, oily, some roast, some sweet dark fruitiness. Taste is some smoke up front, some sweetness, olives once again comes through giving it a taste of a sunny afternoon in Italy with a thapas table packed with delicious chorizo.

kappldav123 (5000) - GERMANY - AUG 28, 2014
Bottle looks simple but really good. Beer in the glass dark black, nice head. Starts heavy malty, intense earthy-stouty, bitter background with light fruity hints. Finish with coffee notes, earthy-woody. Not bad!

Bottle @ Odense Get Together Short Notice, August-14. Pours black with a creamy head and lacings. Roast, coffee and charcoal. Salty licorice and smoke. Full bodied. The smoke is there but overall gentle. Good!

Christian (11119) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 13, 2014
Odense Late Summer Post-Munkekonge Whale Spotting Night. Jet black with a big tan head. Roasted aroma with licorice, caramel, coffee and a hint of smoke. Sweet roasted flavour with lots of licorice. Smoked notes and a burnt, ashy finish. I far prefer the fresh, regular imperial stout with all its hops

Ragnampiza (424) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - AUG 10, 2014
250 ml bottle from Birra+ (#2297). Pitch black, absolutely no light passing through, with a huge, creamy, dark brown head which dissipated rather quickly. Huge booziness on the nose, quite sweet smelling, lots of cane sugar, toffee candy, vanilla, wood, dark caramel, a hint of salty soy sauce. Completely different in the mouth from what I was expecting. solid bitter dark chocolate and freshly roasted coffee beans presence, slightly ashy, definitel sweet but not as cloying as the aroma indicated. Not much barrel treatment, at least to my taste. There is just a subtle and tiny sourness, which imho is great as palate cleansing. Soft to average carbonation, medium to full body, oily and sticky texture. Different, but I enjoyed it quite a bit.

RexTalionis (2434) - FINLAND - JUL 30, 2014
Bottle. Pours black as used motor oil in color with a beige head. Salty licorice, dark chocolate, vinous notes and sweetish berries in aroma. Licorice and coffee mostly in taste. Also some dark fruityness is present later on. Some smokiness and saltyness in aftertaste.
