Amazing beer. Had on tap at Jester king and this killed all of their offerings. Aroma is blend of coffee Imp stout and hint of old ale in stone fruits and vinous-ness. Appearance is BLACK with a nice tan big head which really brings the aromas right to your nasal doorstep. Taste is nose but the coffee bitterness swaps places with the old ale influences making it a kind of old ale Imp stout with hints of coffee. Palate is thick and wonderful. A great beer.

Pours a lasting beige frothy head atop an opaque body. Nose of coffee with a peach background. Very sweet, figs, soya sauce, cocoa powder and alcoholic cider. Bizarre. Purchased a Metro Liquor in Saanich.

Rating #1021, flaske fra Toft Vin. Sort øl med flot brunt skum. Ond duft med masser af ristet malt og kaffegrums. Let humle, citrongræs og alkohol. Voldsom smag af sød chokolade, kaffe, let alkohol og nogen citrus. Eftersmag med alkohol, kaffegrums meget bitterhumle... Lækkert. Tyk og cremet.

Deep and dark with a small beige head. Big coffee smell with fruits sitting just behind it. Thick and creamy. Flavours include coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla, dark fruits, sour cherry, liquorice. Oats then come through, and a sharp bite that comes across like chilli but may be just the alcohol. Superb.

Pours black with a foamy browny head that promptly dissipates. Aroma is brown sugar, espresso and light dates. Taste sweet, coffee, slight liquorice with a medium sugary coffee finish. Quite sweet like an Oatmeal stout, as the ingredients list would have you believe.A touch of alcohol warmth makes this damn tasty. Good body, not too watery not too thick.

Bottle. Pours black with a small, tan head. Aroma has burned sugar, chocolate, roasted coffee and salmiak licorice. Taste is fairly sweet and sugary up fronts, but turns over to a dark, roasted bitterness with coffee and licorice. Full body and medium low carbonation. Slight oatmeal. Delicious!

Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. This inky black beer has ruby red highlights and pours with a thin tan head. It has rich dark chocolate, liquorice and oak flavours, chilli notes (without the heat), tart red fruit and Arabica coffee on the finish. Excellent!

Pours pitch black with a small head. Aroma: licquor, sugar, raisins, coffee. Taste: very thick (which I love about imperial stouts), sweet, heavy, you can feel the alcohol warming your throat, followed by a coffee aftertaste. It is a bit too sweet to my taste but I still think this is one of the best imperial stouts I had so far.
