Thefakeone (2) - POLAND - APR 24, 2016 does not count
Aromat stosunkowo mało wyraźny czuć karmel, toffi, czekoladę i mocną kawę. W wyglądzie czarne z brązowymi refleksami, piana ładna, utrzymuje się całkiem długo. W smaku jest bardzo pełne - wszystkie smaki łączą się i dają całość przyjemną dla języka, czuć głównie kawę, gorzką czekoladę i toffi, na dalszym planie delikatna wanilia i orzechowość.

Rask0lnikov (566) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 10, 2016
Dark brown colour. Beige head which disappears quite quickly. Chocolate and cocoanibs in the aroma. Really good smell. Cocoanibs and bitter chocolate at first. Slight bitterness in the middle. Hints of toffee. Nutiness in the end. Chocolate in the aftertaste. Really nice creamy palate. Rather medium bodied. Very well balanced. Great stout. Very drinkable.

KarlPopper (51) - Krakow, POLAND - APR 2, 2016
Pours black with excellent brown head. Aroma of cocoa and dark malts. After warming some hint of vanilla in aroma. Very balanced and nice mouthfeel of dark cocoal and melonoidines, complex but not extremely thick, rather a bit dry. Balanced taste of cocoa makes it very pleasant and very drinkable, not a hint of alcohol. Definietely one of the best imperial stouts I have drunk, but not the best. Probably too balanced for me and I like this tkind of beer to be agressive in the taste. Nevertheless very good.

hughhaug (13) - West Bromwich, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2016
Bottle. Pours dark black with hint of red. Little carbonation or head, head is yellow and while limited, it persists. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, toffee, dark fruit, plum, liquorice, dark caramel, hint of ash, with some pine hops in the background. Flavour is medium bitter, quite sweet, oily, with a surprisingly lovely smooth finish despite its ABV.
