COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rich and chocolatey A proper imperial stout brewed with chocolate & caramel malts, and dark roasted barley. The flavour is immediately rich and chocolatey, giving way to espresso notes. It finishes with a great waft of citrus from a generous blend of our favourite hops.

I_LUV_BEER (81) - - MAY 11, 2016
Served in a snifter from a 330ml bottle. Pours almost black opaque colour with a tan long lasting head, leaving plenty of lacing in the glass. Aroma is roasted citrus hops, dark malts, molasses, smoke and coffee. Taste is quite dry, with notes of wood, burnt coffee and molasses, pine resin and a touch of roasted malts, finishing off with long lasting medium pine bitterness. Medium body with soft carbonation. Nice one.

33cl bottle from de Bierkoning, Amsterdam and poured into a snifter on 05-May-2016. Dark brown, almost black in colour with a healthy beige coloured head. Hoppy sweet aroma. Full body and medium carbonation. Bitter taste - cocoa and coffee, but overwhelmed a little by the sweetness of the caramel malt and citrus fruits. creamy mouthfeel, and a dry finish.

Bottle at home. Aroma is dark malt, chocolate, Brett funk (infection?), fruity hops, citrus, some coffee. Flavour is moderate sweet and above moderate bitter. Body is medium. Probably infected, judging by the other ratings. May have to rerate one day. Still tasty though.

MarcoDL (3695) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 8, 2016
Bottle. Black pour, creamy head. Aroma of sweet sugary yeast, funk and roasted malt. Flavor of creamy chocolate, yeast, red fruit, mild tart, roast and a funky finish. Don’t know whether the funk was intended, but it’s nice.

Marduk (5402) - Reval, ESTONIA - MAR 3, 2016
330ml bottle @Metenis 2016. Pitch black color. Medium size, brown head, stays. Roast, spicy, black pepper, chilly in aroma. Rose pepper, roast, dry chocolate cake, yeasty and just a tiny bit of diacetyl in taste. Rose pepper and roast in aftertaste. Nice and spicy, but that’s pretty much it. Drinkable, but not very exciting.

Vells (1361) - Rīga, Latvija, LATVIA - FEB 20, 2016
Easy drinkable, but quite rich. Nice roasted malt background, quite powerful dark choco kick, some coffee, hoppy citrus bit out of picture. Moderate sweet with moderate bitterness. Lovely, but bit boring

Flaska. Svart öl med ett stort och långvarigt moccafärgat skum. Dofter av choklad, rostad malt, espresso och lakrits. Smakinslag av espresso, choklad, aska, soja och citrus. Torr munkänsla. Torr eftersmak. Besk avslutning. Mycket trevlig.
