Thijs (15) - - AUG 21, 2012
Dark brown with fine tan head. First whiff of the aroma was red wine, but it quickly almost disappears and the aroma becomes malty sweet, chocolate. Taste is sweet, soft, caramel, butter, a little liquorice. Nice brew, but a little to sweet for my liking. Would categorize it as an imperial stout.

gopherfan99 (699) - CROATIA - FEB 15, 2015
Bottle; pours very dark brown with a beige head; aroma of chocolate, roast malt, and coffee with hints of dark fruits; taste is mostly bitter but has a little bit of sweetness with coffee, roasted malt, and chocolate; has a bitter finish; not bad but could be better

thanatosti (1017) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 14, 2015
33 cl. bottle @ home, bought online @ Biernavigatie.nl. Clear dark brown with a minimal beige head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate and more in general roasted malts. Taste is sweet-bitter with the typical bitter aftertaste. A nice imperial stout, lighter and more accessible than most IRS powerhouses.

Donker bier met minimale kraag. Aroma is drop, koffie en gebrande mouten. Smaak is ook stop en cacao. Erg mooi bier.

blackisle (964) - IJburg, NETHERLANDS - OCT 22, 2014
Bottle 33cl. Clear but very dark brow with a ruby hue against the light, one finger foamy tan head, dissipates quickly but good lacing; aroma roasted malts, cocoa, coffee, dark fruits, licorice; taste soft sweetbitter, dark chocolate, coffee, hint of laurel; medium to full body, creamy texture, soft carbonation; finish smooth bittersweet, lingering roasty and chocolate aftertaste. Alcohol well hidden. Good example of a more light version of IRS.

BobEvers (312) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 11, 2014
fles 33cl kleur: donkerbruin/zwart, creme schuimkraag, schuimt uit de fles, maar in het glas is het zo verdwenen. geur: koffie, chocolade, fruit smaak: koffie, chocolade, rood fruit, heel licht zoet, en bitter. Goede balans

A pretty decent, though very basic imperial stout. Chocolate and licorice dominate. Some astringency tempered by the nice sweet finish.

olio (6799) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 29, 2014
33 cl bottle.
Pours black color with a medium sized off-white head. Some cocoa and malts coming through on the nose, faint chocolate and caramel, fair amount of hops too, maybe a bit of soy somewhere on the background. Very creamy and fluffy palate, lots of caramel and some marshmallow, slightly syrupy and sugary, dark malts and faint cocoa. A tad too sweet but alcohol is very well hidden, then again the strong carbonation kind of waters up the beer a bit too.
