Bov (10117) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - APR 9, 2015
from Erzbierschof - black beer under a long lasting and creamy dark beige foam; roasted aroma of coffee, ashes and cacao; full-bodied, rounded, light grainy and with some sweetness; the vanilla appears at last to dominate the finish, lingering notes of cacao

nihtila (1288) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 28, 2015
14.2.2015. Imperial breakfast stout with vanilla & cacao nibs. Black beer with brown head. Intense roasted aroma with cacao, coffee and a hint of vanilla, at least when you know its there. Oily texture. Taste is medium sweet, roasted, soft, coffee and dryish cacao finish. Quite simple but tasty.

jookos (3105) - FINLAND - MAR 25, 2015
Bottle. Black, quick tan head. Salty licorice, ashy malty, slight milky, nose. Intensive, and clean. Swirrling reveals herby green citric, almost peppery, hops. Full bodied. Soft smooth texture, no signs of the high abv, just fluffy creamy roast malty goodness. Finding some dry chocolate now, soft ash, roast malts. Doesn’t come by as very aggressive though, rather mellow, soft, easy. Freeze-dried coffee in the finish. A smooth, dangerously easy impy.

gEUS (1338) - Linden, BELGIUM - MAR 19, 2015
bottle at home. Pours black with a small 1-finger head. Nicely roasted aromas, cold coffee, green paprica, subtle vanilla and dark chocolate. Thick body, nice smooth bitterness, roastiness and sweetnes, perfect carbonation. Taste is dark coffee roast and dark chocolate. This beer is quite perfect!

Erasmus_ro (1661) - Alabama, USA - FEB 20, 2015
Bottle, ABV 9.8%. Pours black with a wooden tinge, small, mocha-colored head. Aroma is roast and tobacco. Taste is roast, tobacco, coffee. Lightly sweet, light chocolate, some vanilla, some cocoa later on. Good balance, superb drinkability. Full, but not too much, medium carbonation.

Idiosynkrasie (4532) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - FEB 16, 2015
330ml bottle [9.8% abv]. Jet black colour with average, late awakening, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, ochre-ish chocolate head. Roasty dark malty, coffee aroma, notes of mocha, mocha ice cream, dark chocolate. Taste is chocolately dark malty, more than subtle sweetness, notes of cocoa, mocha, dark chocolate, caramelized coffee beans; perfectly hidden alcohol. Not light bodied in strictest sense, but flattering, dangerously easy drinkable. Focused, simple, clear and clean.

antonstoop (229) - - FEB 15, 2015
Bottle 33cl. Near black with a beige head. Aromas are coffee and creamy oak barrel with vanilla. Medium to low body with little to no carbonation. Flavours are coffee and dark chocolate with funky berry notes. Caramel with lactose and vanilla milkshake. Aftertaste is milk chocolat and sweet, does not stay long. Not enough body for an imperial stout imo. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TET (1939) - FINLAND - FEB 13, 2015
A black beer with an almost medium, dense and light brown head. Aroma is rich, coffee and roastiness, sweetness of chocolate, some vanilla. Taste has coffee, quite strong sweetness, some roastiness, hint of vanilla. Overally, the taste is quite simple but otherwise, balanced and enjoyable. Almost full bodied, smooht, pleasant in the mouth. Quite sweet. Very good beer but for my preferences the final touch is missing.

erickok (4061) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - FEB 7, 2015
Very dark body, brown thick head, amazing looks. Loads of chocolate, toast, tar, spruce and more chocolate. Taste is great too, but not as complex or rich as the aroma. special beer, very modern and Flavourful. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière, shared with Darren)
