DSG (8175) - Tel Aviv, - MAY 24, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting at troubles’s place. Thanks troubles. Black with a light brown head. Nice aroma of cocoa, roast, a bit of vanilla and a light boozy note. Roasty flavor with chocolate, some coffee, a bit of smokiness and a vanilla note. Quite full-bodied.

JorisPPattyn (8333) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAY 15, 2015
Ultimate deep brown beer; thick cream-brown head. End of bottle vicious looking UFO’s. Coffee, ashes, cigar, (over)roasted meat, black chocolate, heated rust. Sweet-roasted. Heat as from chili (if restrained). Black chocolate/cocoa. Despite the power, very good balance! Sweet flavour as from smoked paprika’s. Coffee roasting machine and exotic spices (especially warming up). Obviously very slick, viscous, heavily bodied, rich, warming. Excellent Imperial Stout. Though I certainly wouldn’t want it for breakfast...

veceo (781) - CROATIA - MAY 10, 2015
Pitch black color, big brown head. Aroma of cocoa, chocolate, coffee pancetta, vanilla. Taste is full of cocoa, chocolate, vanilla and coffee. Cocoa feel stays long after. Medium to full body, very soft carbonation. Alcohol is nowhere to be found. Excellent stuff.

Bottle 0,33l bought at Hoppiness (Koper). Dark thick oily liquid with soft tan foam. Wooden lightly smoked aroma and cocoa. Full body, light carbonation. Rich and tasty. Not too sweet for 9,8% of alcohol. Cocoa and some vanilla in taste, long cocoa finish till tommorrow. Very good one.

EdKing (2095) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2015
Bottle from Bottle Apostle, Clapham. colour is opaque very dark brown to black as I pour it into the glass. There’s a brown foam head. Nose is rich silky syrupy dark chocolate, which dominates, then vanilla, coffee, roasted malt grain. Taste is smooth sweet, rich dark chocolate. When I was a kid there used to be this syrupy chocolate spread you could buy. It was delicious and there’s some of that in this. Vanilla, light black coffee and burnt roasted malt. At last a bottled imperial stout which doesn’t have that dead yeast, Marmite flavour. This is how I like them. Smooth rich, chocolatey and sweet. Not cloying though as the dry roasted bitter malts balance it out. On the finish there’s some burnt, roasted malt.

Bov (10216) - 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 (1473) - 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 (3226) - 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 (1395) - 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!
