This beer here, this beer I had @ the Grand Tasting... Compliments of RobertDale, a fine fellow who has impeccable taste in beer & canines. MrHangover (4443) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 15, 2014
The beer pours perfectly black with a small head.
The aroma is rich & roasty with some dark chocolate, but more just a ton of coffee character. It’s got some rich vanilla and some booziness.
The flavor is just huge, it’s got a bunch of coffee and rich maltiness. It’s ashy, somewhat sweet, but it’s go t a nice warming boozy character and.. didi I mention? fabulously balanced roastiness.
This is one of those beers where it’s hard to put a finger on why it’s so great, except to say that it is just immensely enjoyable.
Bottle, courtesy of kermis. Pours a pitch black beer with a small beige head on top. Aroma has roasted coffee, thick malty, sugary molasses, caramel and vanilla. Flavor is bittersweet, lots of coffee and vanilla. Very thick mouthfeel, syrupy, lots or molasses and caramel. Coffee influences are really upfront and balancing out the sweetness. Low carbo, very nice unit. anders37 (26257) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 8, 2014

Bottle shared at the get Dean to 5000 tasting, as Dean’s 5000 - yay! Pours near black with a small beige head. Aroma of massive roast, espresso, dark chocolate, fudge. Flavour is over moderate sweet and heavy bitter. Full bodied but missing some of the complexity of other top end imperial stouts. That said, still excellent.
