Part of a vertical tasting (disclaimer!). Great beer. Really didn’t like the aroma at first- 4 sniffs were still "green" and a touch garden hose. But the first sip was amazing. And the aroma changed too. Solid. Nice mouthfeel for an imperial stout. jonas (7564) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - FEB 9, 2017

Black with medium brown head. Aroma is fresh brewed coffee, only some chocolate, some wood and cherry pips, wet earth. Taste is incredibly bitter with lots of spicyness. Spicy finish with again much coffee bitterness. Not so easy to drink, heavy. Phew. jfb (6256) - GERMANY - FEB 9, 2017

Frischer, dunkel kaffeeartiger Beginn. Deutlich Schokolade, trocken holzig, moderat herb. Espresso, wenig alkoholisch. Steigende Trockenheit, dennoch sehr süffig. Langer weicher Nachhall, nach wie vor intensiv nach Kaffee. 10/12/12/13/12/13
