Tonkatruck (13) - SPAIN - MAR 5, 2015
From a 330ml bottle bought from Beermerchants. Poured black opaque with a light brown head that died back quickly, carbonation med to low. Aroma all dark malts with coffee. The palate was great, fills the mouth and coats the tongue, Lovely. Flavour , mellow and rounded nice depth on the finish. Enjoyable with a great mouthfeel.

CarlJonas (227) - Linköping, SWEDEN - FEB 28, 2015
Pours pretty much black with a big brown head that leaves a long lasting lid. Rich aroma of dark roasted coffee, chocolate, vanilla. The taste is very well rounded bitter-sweet upfront, with a long lasting finish somewhat too ashen and astringent for my taste. Full bodied and slightly oily with lots of tiny bubbles that quickly dissipates. Very good, but I would’ve preferred a smoother finish.

axl (142) - Lund, SWEDEN - FEB 28, 2015
330ml bottle. Pitch black with dense two finger brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee and some bitterswert chocolate. Bitter roasted taste altering over to sweet chocolate and then back to a great mix of roasted dry and sweet. Great complex palate with very well hidden alcohol.

MrsWylie (9) - Sitges, SPAIN - FEB 24, 2015 does not count
Lingering peat, whisky and molten dark chocolate on the tongue. Roasted coffee and molasses malt character on the nose plus a hint of soy sauce - Tia Maria meets Umami! Irregular, frothy, dark head. Black, full body.

Cool_Bond (1931) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - FEB 22, 2015
The aroma is of dark coffee. The taste is sweet but still dark chocolate and dark coffee. Maybe a little alcohol also in taste. But not so much. Heavy bitterness in the aftertaste that fills the mouth forever. The aftertaste really do not want to end. Good beer but I do not really give a great rating so it is for me only okay. Very heavy beer to drink. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

SirLimpsalot (2556) - SWEDEN - FEB 21, 2015
@ Basunen 15-2-21: riktig fyllig doft av kaffe och choklad. Smaken är mycket fyllig och full av bitter choklad och torr kaffe. Lång fin och fyllig eftersmak med toner av arrak och vanilj. Riktigt gott. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

ninecats (297) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - FEB 20, 2015
Black with brown foam that dissipates slow, leaving some lacings. Aroma is coffee, nuts, roasted malt, alcohol. Taste is rich and balanced, roasted malt, no hoppiness, slight sour hint, chocolate sweets, lots of roasted notes in the finish which is more oaky bitter rather than hoppy bitter. Medium to full body, low carbo, sticky liquid. A fine classic imperial stout as opposed to modern interpretations.

Bottle thanks to Leighton. Pours a dark brown with beige head. The aroma is strong chocolat and roast. Thin mouthfeel with roast, light char, hides alcohol well, very impressive.
