BenDover (223) - Texas, USA - MAY 28, 2012
Pours a deep ruby-brown, with ridiculous amounts of dense tan foam that leaves behind some nice lacing. Aroma is of roasty malts, bittersweet chocolate, maybe cherries and figs. Flavor is sweet and malty, some coffee, a noticeable alcohol burn, and turning bitter and roasty at the end.

Donker, zwaar en stevig bier, roomkraag. Iets zoetig, iets bitterig. Drinkt goed door. Bij mijn favorieten gezet.

Bottle shared. Lots of raisin and cocoa, lingering roasty finish. Good stuff but alcohol is definitely there. Better enjoyed late in a session.

Skinnyviking (8661) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 18, 2016
Draught at Hulen, Bakken. High creamy lasting light brown head. Pitch black body. Sweet roasted malt coffee liquorice aroma. Slightly sour creamy roasted malt coffee liquorice flavor with a fair amount of hops bitterness, low carbonation and a nice long finish.

TrefwoordPunk (943) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - AUG 5, 2016
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a very dark reddish brown with a small tan head and an aroma of toffee, roasted malts, licorice, cloves, espresso, dark chocolate, whipped cream, overripe fruisa and alcohol. The taste is medium sweet with some slight alcohol burn and a small amount of bitterness in the finish.

KoNrRiI (1184) - Ĺrhus, DENMARK - JUL 21, 2016

0.33 bottle.
A very dark brown color with a huge, coffee-cream-colored head. Aroma of caramel, malts, chocolate, and dark bread. Taste is malty and sweet: caramel and chocolate play the first fiddle, but overall it is rather delicate for an imperial stout. A full body, a creamy texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is very sweet, and especially chocolaty, really pleasant but could be longer and more definitive. All in all the beer is tasty and drinkable, but it lacks the usual punch of an imperial stout - a category to which it seems to classify solely based on its alcohol content.

Kapsel (14) - - JUL 11, 2016
Wygląd: Piana obfita, drobnopęcherzykowata. Piwo czarne, nieprzejrzyste. Aromat: Kawa, czekolada, po większym ogrzaniu wychodzi nieprzyjemny alkohol. Smak: Wysycenie średnio-wysokie, trochę drażni język. W smaku widoczna kawa i trochę czekolady. Czuć lekką kwaskowość, a alkohol rozgrzewa przełyk. Ogólnie: Piwo bez większej historii. Niczym nie zaskakuje, ale też jakoś nie odrzuca.

Hopverdju (615) - BELGIUM - JUN 28, 2016
Zwart bier met veel beige schuim. Geur: korst van goed gebakken brood, groene hop, kruidig. Smaak: gebrande mout en hop bitter. Matige koolzuurprikkel. Medium volmondig. Afdronk: bitterig en licht zoetig.

Icedwarf (1230) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JUN 26, 2016
Zwart bier met mooie bruine schuimkraag. Smaak is krachtig, bitter rookachtig, licht zoet, chocolade, mokka en koffie met iets van drop en pruimen. Erg goed bier, mooi in balans.

adasko (1831) - Poznan, POLAND - JUN 13, 2016
Dark seal color, seems to be clear. Massive beige head, beer is definately over carbonated, but what is weird, the head is super steady and persistant. Aroma is on the sweet side, a lot of chocolate, marshmallow, latte with a touch of coffee sourness. There’s a problem with a body, it’s so light and even watery of an imperial stout. Second problem is the carbonation, which is unpleasantly too huge what the pouring depict immidiately. Taste is very light, very balanced. A little bit of coffee and chocolate is noticeable. It’s a joy to drink it, but still, as an imperial stout it nowhere near the really good ones. It’s rather dissapointing. Thing that has to be mentioned is the way the alcohol is hidden, that is the Troubadour way, that’s marvelous.

tomekboniek (493) - Warsaw, POLAND - JUN 13, 2016
Butelka. Barwa ciemno brunatna. Piana biała średniej wielkości, ładnie zdobi szkło. Aromat w zupełności nie przypominający typowego imperialnego stouta. Ciemne owoce w przewadze, cukier. Przypominający typowego belga. Smak dość intensywny, ciemne owoce, karmel, czekolada, słodycz. Goryczka średnia do wysokiej, niezalegająca. Wysycenie średnie. Dziwne piwo, które nie przypadło mi do gustu. Belgijski stout - nie dla mnie.
