Uhlen (251) - Trondheim, NORWAY - MAR 29, 2014
Black as night in the glass, with a thick mocha head. Aromas of vanilla, dark chocolate, coffee and dark fruit. Pretty explosive tastewise. Huuge flavours coming out, and the chili shines through by giving it some subtle spicy notes. Taste is heavy on the sweet side, and medium in bitterness. All in all pretty damn good!

Boutip (4738) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 28, 2014
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a large brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light peppers notes with some very nice and rich black chocolate notes is just about perfect. Taste is a complex mix of rich black chocolates with some light pepper that are not overwhelming with some vanilla notes. Body is full with super nice creamy notes with medium carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Loads of complexity with great flavors and also some good complexity. World class stout for sure.

Thanks to EricTesuink for popping this. 12oz bottle. Big coffee flavors and roasty malt. Spice on the back of the palate to add some complexity and a bit of a bite. Big bold roasted coffee aromas. Smooth roasted coffee and bittersweet chocolate flavors as well. All coming together really nicely.

Dr_Fellini (430) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - MAR 26, 2014
Bottle to glass. Pours a deep brown to black color with a thin brown head. Aroma is a potent chocolate, coffee, burnt malts. Not really picking up on the chili peppers though. Flavor is dark roasted malts, some chocolate, light vanilla. Heavier body with a lingering cacao bitterness. Fantastic beer!

weihenweizen (1745) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - MAR 25, 2014
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle with orange wax on the cap, compliments of BMart poured into a snifter. Pours coal black with medium light brown head. Aroma is rich decadent coffee, thick body, medium carbonation, and moderate thin small bubble lacing. Taste is big coffee, rich chocolate, some vanilla, and hints of chili peppers. Alcohol is well covered and one of my favorite imperial coffee stouts.

brnandersen (1933) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 25, 2014
Sample from 33 cl. bottle. Pitch black with a dense, tanned head. Roasted aroma with red berries, chili, hard roasted malts, vanilla, chocolate, coffee, caramel malts and spices. Taste is bitter. Full body, oily texture and a soft carbonation. Long lasting roasted finish with vanilla, spices chilli and rich chocolate and coffee. Excellent spiced up stout.

MotherBrother (695) - Aalborg, DENMARK - MAR 25, 2014
Pour is pitch black, with a small slightly frothy mocha-brown head. Aroma has plenty of chocolate, coffee, bitter chocolate, roasted malts and some "green notes" to it. The heat from the chilies are coming from the back, and are creeping... The taste Is pretty bitter, with some slightly sweeter notes to it as well. Semi-full bodied, with a semi-flat carbonation. I can see why some calls this the (little/baby) - brother of Hunahpu’s Thanks to Dunt for sending this one out my way

Damnation (6) - Rohnert Park, California, USA - MAR 24, 2014 does not count
On tap @ Beercraft (rp), one of the best imperial stouts I’ve had. Coffee and vanilla was up front, no alcohol burn. Flavors were paired very well.

Ungstrup (29367) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 23, 2014
Bottled. A black beer with no head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, soy sauce, and alcohol. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt, wood, chili, and soy sauce, leading to a dry roasted finish.

JoeTheYounger (1144) - Lake Arrowhead, California, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Orange waxed bottle batch 5 purchased from House of Spirits Monrovia. Super slick black pour with light brown head. Aroma has tons of coffee, chocolate, and hints of spicy peppers. Taste is initially tons of dark chocolate candy bar followed by fresh coffee and a slight hint of peppers which is very nice. Slick oily mouthful that?s super smooth and creamy. Alcohol is well hidden. Da bomb for sure!
