Cenzura (62) - Warsaw, POLAND - AUG 31, 2014
Aroma: Dark chocolate, classy alcohol and roasted malts takes only small part in overall smell. Taste: Again chocolate, little sourness and very, very long great aftertaste. Average carbonation. More body will be better, but that beer is really good. Amazing finish. Price [Warsaw, Poland] 15,5PLN = 3,7 Euro

Completely dark body, huge tan head. Big dark fruit aroma, coffee, alcohol and alcohol. A bit watery, medium to full body, soft carbonation. Bitter and sour taste, coffee bitter finish. Finally, a decent Samuel Smiths.

Very dark brown color, big and staying brownish head. Medium to full body, soft carbonation. Aroma of banana, chocolate, coffee, strawberry. Medium sweet taste, little bit boozy. Very good, but notes of alcohol and slightly lighter body lowered overall score.

Procent (125) - POLAND - AUG 26, 2014
W aromacie czekolada i nuty palone, wiśnie w likierze, delikatny karmel w tle. Piana beżowa, średnio obfita, ładny lacing. Barwa czarna, pod światło ciemnorubinowa. W smaku paloność, suszone śliwki, lekko wiśniowe, kwaskowe. Goryczka niska ku średniej w porywach. Takie połączenie Imp. Stouta z Sour Ale. Dość lekkie, nie mój klimat. Warka do 01.2015r.

M_Sack (390) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 11, 2014
Bottle. Jet back with a one finger mocha coloured head with strong lacing. Strong caramel, golden syrup, dark chocolate, a touch of roasted malts and some sweet lactose. Rich, dark chocolate flavours, subtle roast malts and spicy malts followed by some cherry, alcohol and sarsbarella. Thick mouth feel with just a slight spritz. Very complex, multi layered beer that is just a touch sweet for my tastes.

Bosskie (408) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 10, 2014
Pitch black with a nice carbonation and a weak head. The smell is dominated by pear. Find some subtle caramel in there and some chocolate and coffee, but with difficulty. Hints of vanilla too. Maybe some cinnamon. Taste is burnt coffee caramel, nicely refreshing with a milky creaminess. Interesting beer, far from my regular Imperial stout experience.
