Tiefschwarz. Dicht, ölig. Brauner, schöner Schaum. Sehr intensive Nase nach Röstaromen, reifen Waldbeeren - begleitet von einem frischen Hopfenhauch (Saphir- Aromahopfen!). Herrliche Fülle am Gaumen, macht dort ordentlich Druck. Sehr langer Nachtrunk, die vielschichtigen Hopfenöle massieren sich in die Zunge, geben sie nicht so schnell frei. Zartbitter und himmlisch. Erträgst Du die Fülle?

From the bottle, very heavy and full beer. Aroma of liquorice and smoke at the start, then the hops kicks in. Very good, but pricy.

Dunkel, schwarz. In der Nase röstig, leichte Kakaonoten, dunkle Früchte, Alkohol, Vanille und Holz. Am Gaumen schokoladig, röstig, süßlich, malzig. Cremig und etwas dünn.

SimonTja (248) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 11, 2014
Licorice, rye, dry roastiness, decent amount of hops and, but not that bitter. A bit spiciness and some burn, alcohol is present, quite good but quite mellowed out aswell.

Tayeth (220) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 29, 2014
Interessanterweise riecht man nicht die üblichen Kaffeenoten sondern hauptsächlich Hopfen. Im Geschmack kommen dann mehr Kaffee- und Kakaonoten durch, aber der Hopfen ist immer noch deutlich schmeckbar.

Geruch säuerlich mit Kirschen und Pfirsich. Im Geschmack dann wenig Röst, aber viel Backpflaume. Alkohol ist nett versteckt. Angemessen bitter.

andrepintado (1399) - Lisbon, PORTUGAL - JUN 18, 2014
33cl bottle thanks to Beerhunter111. Dark color with nice brown head. Body is medium. Taste is medium bitter. Aroma is coffee, roasted, high high high hops, vanilla. The hops hide a little bit the rest of the aromas unfortunately.

RobertDale (3411) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - MAY 26, 2014
330 ml. bottle. Thanks Henrik. Pours black with a nice tan head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, and fruit. Taste is roasted malt, chocolate, caramel, fruit, and a bit of coffee. Seemed a bit unbalanced. Nice.

Vaiz (3336) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle at home. Black pour, thin tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, bready yeast, licorice, molasses, chocolate and some candi sugar. Flavor is quite sweet, roasted, spicy bitter and with a nice body. Decent enough imperial stout, well balanced and well drinkable.

mmahut (951) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 16, 2014
Bottle. Pours in deep dark body with medium creamy tan head. Aroma has high grassy character, pine, light milk notes, roasty. Taste has medium roasty bitterness, with evident roasty after taste and light to medium creamy buttery sweetness. You’d probably spot some darker fruitiness, but quite masked by the roastiness. Still, some dried plums are there, mostly in the sweet after taste. Body is full, medium carbonation.
