Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, - SEP 5, 2012
750 ml corked bottle. An opaque black beer, with a large, frothy, lightly lacing, mostly lasting, brown head. The aroma is moderately to heavily malty (roasted grain, molasses, chocolate), lightly hoppy (flowers), with notes of blueberry, alcohol, hint of vanilla and dried fruits. The flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Medium to full body, creamy/syrupy texture, soft carbonation, very long finish with moderate bitterness, moderately alcoholic. I had average expectrations on this beer, but it really outwent them. Outstanding aroma and appearence, on the sweet side, but with enouigh final bitterness. Lightly syrupy/sticky, but overall creamy with a lot of chocolate and even some berries. The only minus is the price...

AmericanHobo (49) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 7, 2014
Nice aroma of roasted coffee and earthiness upon uncorking. Surprisingly well balanced for an Imperial Stout. Roasted coffee and hints of chocolate on palate. Smooth, crisp finish. Not at all hot comsidering the high ABV

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2014 Pours thick and black with a dark tan head. Aroma has notes of coffee and cocoa with raisins and an earthy smokeyness about it. Palate is very similar with a boozey aftertaste. A sipping beer for sure.

beersighted (116) - - OCT 8, 2014
A huge Belgian-style imperial stout. A funky nose leads to a Super duper sweet roast base. Almost too rich for my palate. Medium mouthfeel. Almost have up on this at the beginning, but in the end it rang true.

KnowThyBeer (26) - Wilmington, North Carolina, USA - SEP 7, 2014
A huge roasty beer. Pours black with a dark tan head. Light carbonation. Loads of brown sugar, baker’s chocolate and malt. Finishes smoother than an imperial stout should be. A little bit of fruit too to the finish. Astounding.

dalekliz (880) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle. Pours an inky black with a big tan head that fades quickly. Big malty aroma, lots of wood, dark chocolate, coffee, brown sugar. Rich taste, of bitter coffee and chocolate, toasted malt, wood, dark fruits. Hides the alcohol well. Lingering coffee and malt. Very nice.
