suurjuust (3897) - ESTONIA - FEB 10, 2018
330ml bottle. Dark brown to black beer, small beige head. Beany nose, roast, coffee, chocolate, cocoa. Flavor is beany coffee, but luckily not that beany, chocolate sweetness, hoppy bitterness and more beans in the finish. Not bad, but the beans, man, the beans.

Bottled in Servaas, Mestreech on its last open day. Black beer with a thin dark beige head. Strong choco nose. The aroma is roast malt, toffee, dark chocolate chili. The flavor is sweet with dry roasted bitter finish. Alcohol comes through.

@ Billie's Beer Kafetaria. Dark stout with a herbal coffee aroma. Taste is rather herbal. Coffee in taste. Herbal. Roast. A tad artificial aftertaste.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2018 Très bonne impérial stout, au nez vous avez l'impression de sentir un café, la mousse et présente avec une belle couleur brune et reste longtemps, au goût pas de surprise le café et très présent, nous sentons également beaucoup les 10% d'alcool peut être trop, un léger goût de paprika vient également éveiller les papilles, belle amertume

Marduk (8828) - Reval, ESTONIA - DEC 24, 2017
330ml bottle. Pitch black color. Medium size, thick brown head, stays. Coffee, paprika, beans, chilly in aroma. Coffee, green beans, chilly and green paprika in taste. Coffee, roast, caramel, chilly and beans in aftertaste. Soft bubbly carbonation. Covers alcohol well. Maybe the paprika and beany thing is all coffee. Don't know, but it doesn't disturb me. Solid brew.

CacheManyHose (789) - HONG KONG - SEP 5, 2017
Draught from Mikkeller & Friends in Reykjavik. Pours an opaque brown-black w a thin beige head. Smells of inky coffee, pitch black coffee beans, light smoke, faint caramel. Taste is black roast malt, very dark, light to moderate acidity and brightness, little bit of citrusy brightness in the finish. Body is a bit thin compared to the taste, quite a bit of smoke/ash. Nice but basically just dark coffee grounds + ash. Very good! But not great.
