Chocolate, dark, toasted malts, light coffee, some pepper. Black, medium, frothy, beige head. Light sweet. More chocolate and toasted malts, dark fruits, sweet and mellow at first then the chilli kicks in, medium bodied. Very decent Imperial Stout, well-balanced, nice touch with the modest chilli kick in the finish. Keg at Italian Job, Elephant & Castle. AnG_BrgNor (791) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 21, 2016

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2016 Nera con schiuma nulla. Al naso spinta su caffè, cioccolato, nota alcolica netta. La bevuta è molto piacevole, corpo non deciso quindi è piuttosto beverina, con note di malto tostato, caffè e cioccolato. Carbonazione bassa. Imperial niente male con bel sentore piccante in gola.

Opaque dark brown liquid with a moderate tan head. Heavy malt aromas with dark bread, toasted and roasted malt and dark chocolate. A bit earthy and some bitter cherry pits also in the scent. Flavor starts moderately sweet and leads to a light acid and some black malt bitterness. Finish is a bit ashy. Full feel. 9/10

Small dark head, very dark brown, nearly black colour, hazy. Aroma: coffee, dark chocolate, vanila, a bit of smoke. Bitter taste with long and intensive spicy aftertaste. Full body, average carbonation.
Wow, pretty good, very nice spicy finish. Grumbo (3845) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2016
Bottle enjoyed at Luppolo 12, Roma. Poured clear, almost black, with an initially big mid-brown coloured head, which soon dissipates. Aroma of chocolate, malts, coffee, and a light peppery spice. Relatively light sweetness, with a deep roasted bitterness. The chilli pepper is a slow developer, but half way through a light burn comes through and continues to build in intensity. Full bodied, oily texture, soft carbonation.
