TimE (4886) - Tokyo, - JAN 13, 2013
Very dark brown color. Very dry woody, austere, rounded smooth. Elegant, cacao, wood, dry, round. Amazing how well the alcohol is hidden. Superb and nothing like I’ve drank before.

330 ml bottle 2016-07-22
9% ABV. very smooth, nicely chocolaty, roasty and berryish. Almost like a dried plum or plum jam kind of sweetness. Kind of an Imperial Foreign Stout.

mariuspoenari (1311) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 16, 2016
33cl bottle. Pitch black pour with a thin tan head. Smells like dark cherries, cocoa, chocolate and roasted malts. The taste follows the same notes, with an addition of both brewed as well as roasted coffee. Medium to full bodied, soft carbonation and a roasty bitter-sweet finish.

jakubwloszcz (158) - Piastów, POLAND - JUL 6, 2016
Pite w pubie Browariat w Katowicach. Barwa ciemnobrunatna, prawie czarna. Piana niska, jasnobeżowa, drobnopęcherzykowa, ładnie oblepia szkło. Aromat słodki, niezbyt złożony, nie zapowiada jeszcze, jak genialne jest to piwo. Na pierwszym planie jest czekolada, w tle kawa i karmel. W smaku jest dużo mniej słodyczy, pojawia się za to spora paloność. Jest też czekolada, ale zdecydowanie bardziej w stronę gorzkiej niż mlecznej. Z każdym łykiem można odkryć coś nowego: są subtelne nuty kawowe, waniliowe, nawet orzechowe. Faktura jest bardzo gładka, aksamitna, piwo jest bardzo pijalne. Fantastyczny stout.

AngloJaxon88 (9) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2016 does not count
Just an outstanding example. Rich, thick, oily, full bodied mouthfeel. ABV well hidden, but the hum of alcohol is really well balanced with the flavour of the malts. tastes of chocolate, sherry, rich dried fruits. Not too roasty. which is working well with this beer (I do like them roasty too though). Even the Mrs likes it, and she drinks wine!

Muy buena. Tiene un aroma muy bueno. Bastante cuerpo, y deja un sabor largo con tonos a chocolate.

brewtalita (222) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 16, 2016
Jet black, low lingering brickish red head. Aroma cocoa powder, espresso. Robust body, roastiness nicely blends with sour cocoa nibs. Long lasting bitterness - well hopped. Maybe too much, otherwise rating would be bit higher.

Zlotta (1845) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 14, 2016
0.33 l bottle from ’De Bierkoning’ at 10% abv, bottled in October 2014. Pitch black with a medium large, creamy, almost stable, light brown head. Intense, sweetish, roasty aroma of dark chocolate, mocca, licorice and cocoa. Sweetish-malty, moderately roasty taste of dark chocolate, mocca, licorice, cocoa and hints of hazelnut, followed by a long, slightly warming, rather roasty-bitter finish. Full body, creamy ans viscid mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Very intense flavours, great mouthfeel, overall very satisfying. Just lovely!

Bottle, thanks to brewtalita. Dark brown colour, nice beige head. Aroma is roasted, assertively hopped, earthy, pine. Taste is roasted, earthy hoppy, some caramel and malty sweetness. Roasted and hoppy bitter aftertaste. Very good.
