marcogrind (100) - Milano, ITALY - JUL 25, 2015
Black, brown head. Cacao not so present, vanilla just a remind. More coffee. Okay imperial stout, but expected something more extreme. Body also a bit light.

Saeglopur (1053) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JUL 14, 2015
330 ml bottle from Saveur Bière.
Black body, with a small, creamy, coffee colored head.
Aroma of coffee, wood, cocoa, dark chocolate, liquorice, some dark fruits.
Tastes of cocoa, chocolate, vanilla, coffee, liquorice, molasses.
Full, creamy mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes smooth, with coffee, cocoa, wood, some liquorice.

Tasty. Very smooth to drink, the ABV is completely hidden. Lovely coffee notes, with the cocoa and vanilla well integrated. I would prefer a bit more complexity though, but overall still a very enjoyable Stout.

FatPhil (10893) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 3, 2015
330ml bottle - thanks martjoobolut!
First sniff was ashtray, then some coffee. Black, small brief head. Nice sweet barley roast. Not overpowered by adjuncts, there’s a good beer at the core of this. A very good beer. Massively drinkable, no sign of 10%. So mellow, great roast but no astringency at all. 3.6 seems like an underrate.

Bottle at home. Black pour, thin tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, bread, chocolate, licorice and vanilla. Flavor is quite sweet, bitter and thick bodied. Solid brew, well balanced and full of flavors. Great.
