Appearance - black. No head. Aroma - slightly sweet. Hints of chocolate. Terrifically light. Mouth - slightly more carb than the pour suggested. Not as oily and viscous but I would consider it low carb. Taste - very gentle start. Excellent chocolate malt flavor at the finish. Didn't detect any pepper. The gravity is well hidden. Tongue slightly tingles after some time. Not in your face but balanced well. Overall - this beer is fantastic.

emartell (349) - Zapopan, Jalisco, MEXICO - SEP 18, 2016
Aroma perfecto. Intensidad de notas a café, chocolate, maltas tostadas, vainilla, madera y algo de especias. Completamente negra, corona de espuma abundante de media retencion. Cuerpo redondo. En boca suave y sedosa. Al paladar es perfecta. Compleja, pero a la vez equilibrada. Ningún sabor es dominante ni mucho menos agresivo. Las cantidades adecuadas en los momentos precisos. Una cerveza que disfrutas a cada trago de principio a fin y que a pesar de su potencia alcoholica es muy fácil de beber.

trapped (2237) - New York, TURKEY - SEP 16, 2016
Draught. Inky black with very small frothy beige head, sharp coffee aroma, low carbonation, slightly sweet mocha taste with coconut flavor and alcohol undertones, smooth body long mocha finish. Deliciously satisfying.

mikeyo1 (673) - Linköping, SWEDEN - SEP 9, 2016
Bottle@ home. Aged 18 months. The pours is almost black with a small beige head. Aroma of green chilies, coffee, coffe beans, vanilla in a nice combo with some vinous dark fruits, chocolate, biscuits, tobacco, raisins,, slight toffee and licorice. Palate is incredibly smooth snd oily with a medium to full body and an extensive duration. Taste is sweet with biscuits and molasses upfront. Some coffe and alcohol like bitterness. Flavors also of chilli, chocolate, vanilla, raisins plums. Some lingering alcohol heat, nicely combined with lingering chilli.

Typical impy stout appearance and aroma. Flavor is excellent. Just a perfect amount of chocolate, vanilla, roast, peppers. So balanced. Impressive brew.

Caskalefan (165) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - SEP 4, 2016
The perfect blend of chocolate, vanilla, espresso and just the right touch of chili peppers. Creamy, slightly syrupy body, and an almost endless dry(ish) finish. At one time, I thought this beer was too austerely dry, but now it seems like absolute perfection.

Pours almost black with small brown head. Aroma is vanilla, toffee, coffee, hint of tobacco, liquorice, some chili. Medium sweet, medium to high bitter, wonderful long, salty finish with chili kick. Full body, oily texture, rather high carbonation. Great taste without being too syrupy or sticky, really explodes in the mouth. Fantastic brew.

petewhitley (519) - Nagoya, JAPAN - SEP 3, 2016
coffee, chocolate, vanilla, black, minimal head, medium sweetness, medium body, creamy. Perfect balance of coffee and chocolate in aroma. Nice vanilla notes. Black, almost no head. Solid medium sweetness matched with pepper; brilliant combination. Silky smooth, light bitter finish. I would have never guessed that this carries a 13% a.b.v.; absolutely no indication in taste. Imperials are far from my favorite genre, but this transcends such preferences. Shockingly delicious.

Beckons you closer with the first sniff - a hint of what will follow. Or at least that's what you hope ... And with a small sip, you're rewarded - your palate rejoices, your heart soars - your head starts thinking of running immediately back to the bottle shop which sold you this magic ale. Good sh*t. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

alteregoo (921) - POLAND - AUG 28, 2016
Pianka niewielka, sycząca, od razu po nalaniu opada do zera jak na pepsi. Barwa czarna z brązowymi refleksami. Aromat to potężna dawka kakao, szwajcarskich czekoladek i kawy, w tle wanilia i specyficzny zapach papryczek. W smaku dość słodkie, dość rzadkie, czuć wszystko to co w zapachu plus pikantność papryczek na finiszu, karmel, paloność, cola... Goryczka średnia, tytoniowa, alkohol nieźle wkomponowany, przyjemnie rozgrzewający. Wysycenie średnie, za wysokie jak na RISa.
Całkiem niezły RIS, ale nie wybitny, jak sugerują oceny na RB. Poza całą maestrią w zapachu i smaku brakuje mi tu gęstości, ciała, to się po prostu pije jak zwykłego, lekkiego sweet stouta, w dodatku przegazowanego... Oczywiście pikantne papryczki też nie poprawiają sytuacji...
Ps.
Piwo ponad rok spędziło "na leżaku".

brandon31g (37) - HONG KONG - AUG 25, 2016
Pours a black body with tiny tan head. Aroma gives lots of roasted coffee and cocoa, some vanilla and hints of pepper. Taste is dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla with a touch of chilli. There is great amount of sweetness but nicely balanced by roasty flavour. Medium to full body with smooth mouthfeel.
