Aroma: vanilla, medium roast coffee, cocoa, all in smooth succession. Appearance: espresso body, light brown and foamy head. Taste: sweet vanilla, caramel notes balanced by bitter coffee and bitter dark chocolate. palate: incredibly smooth mouth feel. creamy, like an oatmeal stout, with medium carb. mimics the texture and mouth feel of a barrel aged beer. outstanding. boydmarq (61) - Bloomington, Illinois, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Chewy, chocolatey yumminess. Complex flavors overshadowed a bit by the alcohol. Overall, an outstanding brew TychoJames (1283) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 15, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2013 Flaska från systembolaget . Svart med beigefärgat skum. Doft av vanilj, kaffe och rostad malt. Smaken drar åt mörk choklad, kaffe och vanilj AndresTM (434) - Texas, USA - NOV 11, 2013
UPDATED: APR 4, 2015 Aroma: wood, vanilla at the forefront, fading into coffee and roasted malts. Also present are earth and ash, while caramel tempts and waters the mouth. There’s a prickling alcohol presence, but it blends in with the other notes. The mouthfeel is sublime: perfect combination of a medium-to-viscous body and smooth carbonation. It manages to be as distant from "watery" or "overcarbonated" as it is from "syrupy." On the tongue, it is sweet without being cloying and moderately bitter; it leaves an aftertaste of burnt wood, malts, a motherload of coffee, and just a hint of vanilla. I really wanted it to be a little more vanilla-forward than it is, but then again that’s asking for perfection. It’s a fantastic beer as it is, and I’m glad it finally got to Texas. It’ll be a regular in my fridge for sure. Brain_Parasite (70) - California, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Pours black. Aroma of roasted coffee beans, vanilla, dark chocolate. Rich flavor: coffee, chocolate, caramel, vanilla, berries, a little woody/smokiness too. Fairly high ABV but hidden well within the great flavor. Would have again for sure!

Pours black with a one finger mocha head that thins fast.
Aroma is huge, coffee, chocolate, vanilla, and a touch of reese peanut butter cup. Weird and awesome!
Taste is a big coffee bitter with a chocolate and vanilla finish.
Low-medium body with a low-medium carbonation.
Overall very good. Big coffee and vanilla aroma and taste. Great. jdb288 (584) - Wake Forest, North Carolina, USA - NOV 7, 2013
More coffee than vanilla for me out of this one. Heavy porter that needs a bit more malt to make it balanced. Lilja (3140) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 5, 2013
Smak och doft av söt vanilj, choklad, brända toner och tydliga kaffearomer. Rund, len, med kraftfulla smaker med toner av saltlaktris och havssalt. Riktigt fin. Franzen (587) - SWEDEN - NOV 2, 2013
Intense roasted aroma with lots of chocolate. Unmashed malt, vanilla, toffe and some coffe is there as well. Vignale (3781) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 31, 2013
Really dark red almost black colour with nice thick beige head.
Taste is intense in chocolate, vanilla and toffee with some marshmalllow. The sweet chocolate and toffee taste is nicely finished of with a coffee bitterness and than return a bit in the finish which is more vanilla and chocolate than bitterness
Full body with average carbonation and creamy texture. Could have had less carbonation for my taste
A really nice beer. I really love this one not much that could been improved, just minor details.
Flaska från SB. En rejäl och välbalanserad Imperial kaffeporter. Kaffedoft- och smak är örtig och drar åt grön chili mot botten av en rejäl och maffig rostad chokladbotten och söta vaniljtoner. Riktigt god.
