Acid303 (668) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - FEB 20, 2016
65cl bottle, served in Duvel glass. Pours black with big tan head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, cookies and hints of vanilla. Taste is dark chocolate, coffee, brown sugar, dried fruits and a touch of wood. Nice because it’s not barrel aged. The roasty and slightly hoppy finish is pleasant. Full body, perfect carbonation. Great job.

McTapps und ich passen bei solchen Bieren einfach nicht zusammen. Alles Dunkle gebe ich an sie weiter, während ich die oftmals diverse Böcke und Helle erhalte. Keine Ausnahme macht dieses Piwo hier. Muffig und dick, mit einem schweren Schuss an Röstaromen und viel Kaffee - der Kaffee und dieses Schwere und Bittere stoßen mich ab, ansonsten ein ganz vernünftiges Piwo.

Billowy pour and chocolate aromas. Finish is the most interesting as the alcohol seems to bloom but is not overdone. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

McTapps (6448) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - FEB 12, 2016
Bottle from Rudat in Dortmund. The beer has got a deep black colour with a smooth body and steady creamy head. Aroma of malt, woods and espresso. Intense taste of barrels, rum, malt, woods, plums, chocolate, cappuccino, coffee beans and cocoa. Intense and delicious. Very vineous. Loved it.

freretoc (1584) - Besançon, FRANCE - FEB 11, 2016
Bue en bouteille de 50cl à la brasserie, couleur noire, mousse marron qui tient bien et effervescence moyenne. Nez sur le chocolat et le fruit noir. En bouche attaque sur le chocolat, le chocolat au lait continuité sur une belle amertume bien équilibrée, continuité sur la mûre et la myrtille et une énorme fin de bouche sur le café excellent mais qui fait faire des rêves bizarres !

heman (593) - Tychy, POLAND - FEB 7, 2016
Barwa ciemno brunatna, piana ładna, intensywna i brązowa. Aromat przyjemny, acz nie zniewalający. Trochę nut czekoladowych, podszytych wyraźną palonością. W tle czerwone owoce i powiew alkoholu. W smaku niestety wraz z każdym łykiem alkohol zaczyna odgrywac główną rolę. Kakao i czekolada, pokrywana jest cierpką nutą alkoholową, dość ordynarną i nieprzyjemną. W tle kawa espresso. Wybitnie degustacyjne.

Dfonorow (2039) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 22, 2016
On tap at Franklin Tap - Chicago. Pour is close to black with a medium tan head. Aroma and flavor of cocoa, dried fruit, pine hops, and roasted malt. Finish is pretty hoppy for a imperial stout with added notes of candi sugar and yeast.

Btl pours a black color like dirty motor oil. Huge tight compact dark tan head,lingers forever never dissapating. The inside of glass is covered with lace with each gulp of beer consumed. Aromas of chocolate,coffee,earth, toasted bread, burnt sugar, a whiff of licorice and a hint of booze. Tastes of milk chocolate, espresso,sweet toffee,figs and alcohol. Big full body, nice almost nitro like carbonation, soft creamy mouthfeel and a roasty finish. This beer is great tasting and smooth. It will definitely warm you up on a cold winter night. Bold,robust flavors keep me wanting more, unfortunately I only have one bottle. Outstanding imperial stout! FYI bottle dated 9/1/11.
