Dark pour with a thin tan head. Chocolate, coffee and vanilla aroma. Flavor starts with a chocolate sweetness and ends with a roasted bitter coffee taste. It was good but lacked a little depth. PotjeBier (3449) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 24, 2014

From a 50 cl bottle shared at home. Pours black with a thin tan head. Earthy nose. Flavors of licorice and some dark cherries and plums, with some smokey notes. Yum, yum. Koelschtrinker (20585) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - FEB 2, 2014
Schwerer, schokoladig malziger Antrunk mit geringer Röstigkeit. Intensiv bleibend wobei die Malzigkeit öfters mal zurück steckt, das Bier wirkt dadurch trocken, zum Ende leicht bitter und weniger vollmundig als es sein könnte. 11/10/8/8/8/8

Bottle. Pours deep black with a brown head. Aroma is big vanilla, chocolate, liquorice, wood, alcohol, some coffee and toffee. Not a lot of hop prescence as expected. Pretty damn sweet and moderate bitter. Impressive brew. Long bitter finish, including lots of chocolate and vanilla. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Great.

Pours deep black with flat, creaky browmish head. Smells strong malty with lots of coffee, chocolate and some alcohol. Starts with massive coffee’ish roasted malts, caramel, chocolate and bitter burnt malts. Middle part is malty roaaty, with lots of bitter coffee and sweetish chocolate. Goes into a coffee-malty finish with sweet chocolate and lots of roasted malts.
Bottle shared by Tmoney99 (6/2011, notes). Pours dark brown to black with a purple sheen and a small beige head. The aroma has some sweetness, dark malts, chocolate, light roast and dark fruit. The flavor has roasted malt, dark fruits, some acidity, chocolate. This is decent enough, but doesn’t quite carry the body of American style Imperial stouts.
