Bottle 33 cl. Pours dark brown, black in colour with a small tan head. Roasted malts and darker coffee, lots of it, in aroma. Flavour is wood, coffee and roasted malts. Something felt off in this too, just like in Black Damnation II.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a black color with an small to average frothy brown head that mostly lasted and produced fair lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted coffee malt, caramel and chocolate aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth dry texture and flat carbonation. Good complex roasted choclate and caramel flavor with a medium to heavy roasted sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Good complex standout brew.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Enjoyed via a bottle in the cellar brought back from Belgium. Pours a dark brown-black with a large caramel brown head that clings to the glass. Smells of coffee, chocolate, rum and fresh cut baking potatoes. Tastes like raw potato with coffee and rum. The aftertaste is dry from the sugar content and tastes like a dark chocolate Reisen candy (chocolate/caramel).

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from my trip to Belgium. The beer pours to a pitch black body with a tall lively dark brown head. The aroma is strangely very Belgian. Lots of yeasty aromas and candi sugar with some chocolate covered bananas and coffee beans and sugar cane. Very unique. The flavor is coffee and chocolate. A lot of unique flavors too. Perhaps raisins, smoke, vanilla, wood, licorice, and a thick molasses. The rum component imparts quite a unique character. Medium full body that finishes pretty clean for as heavy of a beer this is. A good beer, but to me, it doesn’t scream spectacular.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
11.2 oz. bottle. Pours black with a small beige head. The lace is sticky at first before sliding down the glass and leaving random spots. The aroma has more in the way of dark caramel, sweetness and coffee than Mocha Bomb. There is a barrel note that seemed like rum and it makes since after reading the description. The flavor has big, sweet dark caramel, coffee, vanilla, rum barrel and a splash of tobacco. Mouth feel seemed a bit sticky compared to the Mocha Bomb. I enjoyed this very much.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home - 15/09/12.
Extreme dark brown verging on black the mocha head soon thins to absolutely nothing.
Big espresso coffee nose, sweet roasted malts, more espresso and a little tirimisu.
Tastes of espresso, sweet dark sugars, chocolate, coffee.
The alcohol is very well disguised and integrated into the beer.
Full bodied, a little soft carbonation with an espresso finish. Very smooth.
Great coffee imperial stout, but I enjoyed the Mocha bomb more.
