neongolden (795) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 17, 2015
(330ml bottle from Systembolaget) Pours pitch black with a small dense dark tan head that lingers with lace. Aroma dark malts and molasses, roasted and smoky, licorice, soy sauce/salt note, coffee in back. Palate first has some sweet dark malt with molasses and dark fruit, cold black coffee, semisweet chocolate. Lots of licorice from the middle on, smoky and kind of peated roast, a little dark fruit liqueur underneath. Finish is quite dry dusty roast and lingering licorice and smoke, touch of coffee bitterness too. A little hint of alcohol warming. Medium full mouthfeel with very soft carb. The feeling is that of an old English imperial stout, nice dry roast malt body and no real hop component, just smoky bitterness. Quite nice change of pace from the more modern style.

MrHangover (3302) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 9, 2015
Bottle. Had this one standing in my beer collection for a while, time to drink it! Bottled on May 29th 2012. Pours a jet black beer with a small off white, bubbly head on top, fades quickly. Aroma has coffee, roasted malts, dark chocolate, Flavor is very deep, intense roasted characters, bittersweet chocolate, coffee, licorice, blackstrap molasses, some faint dark fruits. Overall a very sweet, roasty experience, great drinking, low carbonation and a long sweet aftertaste.

Gary (1664) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2015 Bottled @ The Magpie ,Brentford ; this smells nice to put it blunt and without pretence . classy fumes that spells out the word C O M P L E X in the air ... Boozy roast coffee -with some kinda raw barrel ageing texture and emphasis . . . motor oil lookin beer @ obviously ! Dranks grate . this palate showcases smooth toffee , coffee , chocolate , buttery notes , peppery booze ...all in an enticing texture ... rich and bitter boxing match that ends in a draw and unity . A really seductive Imperial slut
