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.

danlo (1437) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2015
330ml bottle from Hemelvaart Bier Café, Bedale. Black in colour, thin brown foam head leaving lacing and aroma of molasses, milk chocolate, roast malt, raisins, vanilla. Flavour is sweet malty, caramel, chocolate & coffee, brown sugar, toffee, raisins, plus some woody & boozy notes. Oily mouthfeel, medium to full bodied, soft carbonation, lingering chocolate & caramel in the finish. Nicely drinkable.

ferit (162) - Schleswig-Holstein, GERMANY - MAR 26, 2015
Frisse geur. Rouwen bittere groente geur. Ziet er donker uit, schuim snel weg. Zoet, iets bitter en vanille. stroperig. Meestal bij groente is het zoutige maar deze stout heeft iets bittere en fris. Zeer appart. Zo een Imperial stout heb ik nog niet gedronken. Zeer veel alcoho, ik weet niet of dat nodig wat. Voegt niks toe.

kermis (6067) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 4, 2015
Bottle shared. Pours dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma of big milk chocolate, roast, fudge, light coffee, light vanilla, toffee, really a dessert in a glass. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and moderate bitter. Coffee coming out nicely in the palate and balancing against the sweeter notes in the flavor. Alcohol is completely hidden though strong and it really feels like a lighter ABV. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Not the most complex of stouts but easy drinking and very enjoyable for what it is.

Theydon_Bois (11085) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2015
Bottle at home, from Ales By Mail, gawd knows how I’ve managed to not rate this one so far @solidcatchup 13/03/15. Pitch black with a decent tan covering that dissipates to a swirl and edgeward. Nose is chocolate, vanilla bean, light charr, spice, roast malt, coffee notes. Taste comprises shades of dark fruit, chocolate truffles, booze tunes, coffee tang, spice, caramel shortbread. Full bodied, oily soft feel, lightly warming booze in the close. Solid impy, drinks a touch below its ABV, nice sipper - chocolate maltesers all the way at the end!

Borresteijn (5130) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 26, 2015
33cl Bottle from Beer Boutique. Black colour, thin beige head. Aroma of vanilla, soft well-integrated coffee, roasted malts, some chocolate, quite sweet but really nice. Flavour is of coffee, vanilla, chocolate, everything it promises to be, quite sweet but well-balanced imho. Medium bodied at best. Nice.

(Wild Beer Wildebeest) Bottle 330 ml at home, served into a snifter, ABV 11% Black colour on the body, one size of thin, beige head, with good retention, leaving medium lacing on the glass. Aroma has coffee, light alcohol, vanilla. Taste also of coffee, lots of chocolate too, mocha, well hidden alcohol, vanilla, cake, some dark fruits too. Medium to full body, good soft carbonation, creamy and smooth on the palate. Just great!

330ml bottle. Pours dark red brown with a small quick disapering white head. Aroma is bitter coffee, burnt toast, roasted malts an liquorice. Really nice silky smooth texture, low on carbonation. Full mouth feel. You can taste the alcohol a little but its mainly really nice bitter coffee, cocoa, and sweet. After taste lasts for a long time and is mostly chocolate and vanilla. A decent and slightly different imperial stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
