Brown, small rim of a head. Nose of melasses, some coffee. Sweet taste, more bitter and dry near the end, some roast. No alc. detected and a bit watery midpalate. Good enough, but not world class.

Taboada (311) - Compostela (Galiza), - AUG 14, 2014
330 mml bottle tasted on 13/08/2014. Almost deep black colour with a medium beige head. Aroma of cola, coffee and liquorice. On the mouth a lot of coffee, chocolate, liquorice, dark fruits and caramel. Aftertaste is nice. Carbonation and body are medium. ¿Imperial Stout? I don´t know...Next one please!

Moolesen (191) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle 33cl. Deep black with a beige head. Roasted malt and liquorice in the nose. Very intense aroma. Nice intense taste. Hints of tar, rich and at the same time not overwhelming. Balanced bitter finish with a nice length. Great beer.

MarcoDL (2144) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 26, 2014
Bit like a double stout. Has a body of roasted malt, but lacks the aggresiveness of a IS. Sort of like an IS for starters.

androman (359) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 17, 2014
33cl bottle @ home from Mitra. Nearly black color, big brown creamy head, good lacing. Aroma coffee, plum and glue in the nose, flavor is chocolate, some coffee, licorice, soy sauce, dark fruits, slightly wineish, roasted malt, all moderated. Alcohol is slightly noticable. Taste light sweetness, medium to heavy toasty bitterness, slightly acidic. Medium body, slick feel, soft carbonation, not very long lasting moderated bitter finish. Fine but a bit too easy for a russian imperial stout.

Zoals de meeste bieren van SNAB is deze ook erg lekker. Smaak : chocolade,zoetig, beetje rook met een lekker bittere nasmaak.
