Pour from 12oz. bottle purchased at Blue Ridge Beer Hub, Waynesville, NC. Pours inky black, viscous, with a very small head that quickly dissipates. Hi lace retention (legs). Huge aroma of molasses, peat and malt. This is a huge beer, a specialty beer, a desert beer with a very high alcohol content at 13.6%. Massive flavor profile, but not overwhelming. Taste is molasses, burned candy sugar, dark fruits, soy sauce, figs, a bit of anise, and just enough hops so it is not cloyingly sweet. Lingering mouthfuls fully tasted bring out the alcohol, and the flavors combine into this blissful crazy goodness in your mouth. Goes down warm and sweet, with low alcohol burn. You should have only one of these at a time! Outstanding imperial stout with a special twist, but I could not regularly consume it... it's too special.

Piana szybko opada do zera. W aromacie likier czekoladowy, ciemny chleb i niestety sporo alkoholu, który zaczyna dominować wraz z ogrzewaniem piwa. W smaku jest już dużo lepiej - ultra słodkie, czekolada, brązowy cukier, masa śliwek. Szlachetny alkohol na finiszu wprowadza do tego ulepku jakiś balans. Aromat jest niezbyt zachęcający, ale w smaku to pyszniutki #teamsłodyczka

Nera, schiuma praticamente inesistente se non per qualche accenno color ocra, che tende a svanire in pochi secondi. Al naso offre intensi sentori di caramello, cioccolata fondente e caffè, accompagnati da note di uva passa e, forse, frutta secca come noci (?). Non sono sicuro. Note etiliche ben accennate e lievi sentori di malto tostato. Gusto molto dolce, caramelloso, consistenza liquorosa, con tagliente amaro finale accompagnato da note etiliche.

Fules (1622) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUN 23, 2018
Semmi hab, fekete szín. Csokis, kakaós, szedres, szilvás, aszalt gyümölcsös illat. Csokis, kakaós, kávés ízvilág, komoly aszalt gyümölcsös, szedres, szilvás aromákkal. Édes, testes, enyhén szénsavas, közepesen keserű. Nagyon finom, jól eltalált stout.

Cybercat (6891) - Georgia, USA - JUN 16, 2018
Pours opaque chocolate with a thin tan head. Aroma features roast malt, chocolate and quality coffee. Flavor offers chocoate, roast mat, coffee and earthy tones. Texture presents fairly firm body and peppy fizz with a smoky finish. Oh, oh, what a beer!

kajser27 (2357) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 9, 2018
Thick, black colored, small, non lasting creamy dark tan head. Aroma is of roasted malt, coffee, bit oat, dark chocolate, alcohol, some dark fruits. Taste is quite sweet, caramel, roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee, some dark fruit notes, bit boozy, dry roasty bitterness and finish. Full bodied, soft to flat carbonation, thick and sticky. (bottle)

orbit (497) - Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 28, 2018
Truely dark stuff, pitch black stout with a hell of an aroma and all the right guns blazing! But when the stout hits the mouth it is out of all things deadly sweet. And this is just the moment I doubt, it has all markings of a great stout, but terribly sweet. Still, that doesn't do anything to its majestic aroma and bouquet, it just makes it somewhat less than the stout that are more savoury and last longer in my experience.

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2018 Pivo u flaši. Popijeno u Stella Beer2Go dućanu i kušaoni piva u Medulinu. Aroma čokolada & kava i malo alkohola. Tijelo je vrlo gusto. Okus je više čokokolada > kava , samo što je sladak u P. M. ! Definitivno preslatko ! P.S. Pojeo sam dvije kockice čokolade za kuhanje , pa popio gutljaj ovog piva , i još uvjek je bio sladak!

Butelka. Czarne, nieprzejrzyste, piany niemal brak. Mocno palone, sporo czekolady, kawa, trochę karmelu. Bardzo słodkie, nienajgorze ciało.
