(Bottle) very dark beer with a beige head. It has a very strong aroma of a blend of toasted malt, chocolate and coffee. The initial taste in the mouth is a strong, bittersweet chocolate hit and then coffee and malt comes through. I think there’s a slight hoppiness in the flavour as well. One of those beers where there is a mix of flavours which work but each is still distinct. Very drinkable. Too drinkable by half given the strength!

jmgreenuk (4983) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 10, 2013
Tap at the Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013. Poured a deep mahogany with a thin tan head. The aroma is dry coffee leading to a strong bitter, liqourice flavour with coffee and dark chocolate. A super beer, but the liqourice is beginning to dominate.

SarkyNorthener (2388) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2013
Bottle, 9.9%. Very dark brown ale with a medium beige head that becomes a rim around the glass. Aroma is of chocolate and a touch of coffee. The taste is a touch of bitter hops, chocolate, some roasted coffee and dark berries. Medium to full bodied. Very nice but was hoping for something special, instead I got a very good Imperial Stout, so no complaints.
