Aroma is of bittersweet fudge and booze. Flavor has nice amount of booze paired with chocolate and mild roast. Finishes with lots of alcohol and chocolate. Nice and smooth on the palate. gephross100 (943) - Bellaire, Texas, USA - DEC 9, 2016
Pours black like oil with no head. Cinnamon, cocoa, rum barrels and apple. Viscous mouthfeel. Small heat from the alcohol on the finish. This is phenomenal but needs to sit for a couple years. Svartvit (950) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 9, 2016
Bottle shared thanks to kermis. Pours a thick pitch black oily beer with a small mocha head. Aroma is big on the dark chocolate, coconut, coffee, vanilla, rum, bell peppers, chilli’s and a bit of smoke. Taste is heavy sweet, medium bitter. Full body with low carbonation. An amazing beer, this bottle is very fresh and would do well with a bit of age to lose some of the vegetal green notes from the chilli’s. Killer! sjogro (4735) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 4, 2016

Still here, THT December at deanso’s! Vintage 2016 courtesy of RandomStrangerNL. Can’t believe I’m having this twice within a few weeks. Such a dense dark roast and crazy coco sweet, powered by spiciness and roasted paprika. Burnt to ash coconut and paprika. Me loves.
Vinyage 2012 courtesy of RandomStrangerNL. Big roasty with paprika and everything. Nice mild palate. Love.
Bottle. Rich black color with tan thin head. Aroma of molasses and barrel. Taste is motor oil thick, subtle spice and a nice mix of the rum and slight apple tang.

Sample at Denver Rare Beer Tasting VIII on 10/07/2016. Pitch black pour with a thin light brown head that recedes gradually to a film. Patchy lacing. Coffee, rum, malt and chocolate aroma. Full-bodied with flavors of rum, cinnamon-infused brandy, chocolate malt, vanilla and apple. Just a touch of chili pepper. The finish is spiced rum and chocolate. Very good all around.

Bottle at dunder. Very dark colour, taste of chocolate and lots of spices.. Rhaughne (4) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 15, 2016 does not count
Probably the best Imperial Stout I’ve ever had! Chocolate and coffee on the palate with a little additional sweetness from the Apple Brandy.
