johndoughty (4862) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, - JAN 30, 2013
Bottle. Black with a medium head. Chocolate and coffee merge to create a wonderful flavour/ Gently sweet and full bodied yet not overpowering. Dangerously easy to drink.Highly recommended.

probstblueribbon (3675) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 22, 2016
330 ml bottle from Bieropholie, shared with asheft. Deep brown-black with a tan rim. Strong "raw" coffee, kinda green, light vanilla, dark chocolate, a touch briney, medium+ body, very low carbonation, rich coffee, vanilla, chocolate, a little briney in flavor as well, black licorice, fairly dry, moderate-ish bitterness, nice rich finish. Pretty solid. Might be a bit old.

martjoobolut (2800) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 22, 2016
Bottle (from beer gonzo). Pours dakr brown with brownish head. The head stays for some moments. Aroma is liquid chocolate, vanilla, cocoa, nuts. Flavor is sweet and bitter, milk chocolate, dark chocolate, cocoa, some salty licorice, vanilla, some booze. Finish is sweet chocolate with hop bitterness and some booze. Drinkability is really good. Overall: woah, fantastic brew. Feels like liquid boozy chocolate cake and I’m a big fan of boozy chocolate cakes...

Satyroneto (294) - BRAZIL - JUN 2, 2016
Cor marrom escuro quase negro com sedimentos no fundo do copo; espuma bege de baixas formação e persistência, praticamente sem lacing. Aroma em primeiro plano de café expresso e no segundo plano álcool, chocolate e leve baunilha; com o aumento da temperatura tornam-se mais intensas as notas adocicadas de chocolate e baunilha e notas de álcool, sempre com a presença de torrado do café. Sabor inicial doce de chocolate e baunilha com um final alcoólico e torrado remetendo ao café espresso; retrogosto persistente, alcoólico que aquece a boca e de torrado. Corpo sedoso, levemente licoroso e de baixa carbonatação. Boa drinkability para uma imperial stout.

Esperava mais. Negra com média formação de espuma marrom de pouca/média duração. Notas de cafe, chocolate amargo e discreta baunilha. O lúpulo é mais percebido no sabor. Corpo médio, final longo e adocicado.
