500ml bottled on Feb. 04, 2013.
Pours a very dark brown/black with a one and a half finger, frothy tan head that leaves a solid amount of lacing to coat the glass.
Aroma is noticeable. Big roasted notes with chocolate, caramel, alcohol, and a hint of creamyness. Smells really good without being overly sweet.
Taste is balanced but leaning towards bitter with a roasty and chocolaty aftertaste.
Full body with a medium carbonation. Not overly sweet with a creamy texture in the mouth. Very drinkable but you may want to sip rather than chug.
Overall this is a great beer. Solid aroma and taste with a superb, creamy, mouth feel. I’m really glad this isn’t that hard for me to get. I will be buying more. Cheers!

Caña en el Lupulo Feroz(Oviedo). Color negro, rubi al trasluz, espuma fina beige muy clara de poca retencion. En nariz recuerda al turron. En boca, cuerpo medio y quizas peque de muy dulce, pero es agradable de tomar, no llega a empalagar. mansquito (6438) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JAN 29, 2017
From mon frere: pours black with a small head. Aroma is chocolatey, sugary, malty. Taste is kind of sweet... not cloying. Some chocolate. Smooth and creamy body. Not huge on flavorside. Pretty light for an IS. Not bad. Arcanor (421) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 24, 2017

500 ml bottle. Quiet pour with meager carbonation and a bland chocolate malt aroma with vegetal notes. The beer is dark in colour and opaque with a handsome dark tan head and good lace. The taste starts with chocolate malt with lactose sweetness expanding onto the middle. The finish is long with vegetal notes and hints of spice adding to the complexity. Some alcohol warmth at the very end, msbernac (2618) - Krakow, POLAND - DEC 31, 2016

Bottle. Clear brown body, small mocha head with average to poor retention, almost no lacing. Aroma of wood charcoal, milk, burned toast, blackberry jam and hits of leather. Taste of condensed milk, well done toast, blackberry jam, mild herbs and toffee. Very light for the ABV. A desert. Gluepot (640) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 5, 2016
A thin light tan head on a chocolate body. The nose is chocolate and sweet malt with a slightly disconcerting vegetal element. The body is surprisingly thin for an imperial. The taste, unfortunately follows suit. Chocolate, caramel and cream are well blended but that slightly vegetal je ne sais quoi lingers in the back of the taste as well. It is not bad for what it is, but what it is is not much.
