Aroma is of chocolate, dark fruit, and roast. Dark black pour with thick head. The taste is sweet and woody with a boozy burn at the end. Medium to full bodied, would have liked it to be a little thicker. The astringent finish isn’t that great either. VsXsV (4439) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 26, 2013
Bottle. Opaque black liquid with medium tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, licorice, pumpernickel, fruity hops and roasted malt. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter with notes of coffee, chocolate, toast and citrus. Medium bodied with low to medium carbonation. Quite nice, well hopped. Reminds me of many danish imperial stouts. MarcoDL (4964) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 20, 2013

Pours black with a large, lasting tan head.
Nose shows heavy roast, some sweet bready malt, a little roasted coffee and some nutty malt.
Similar flavours. Heavy roasted malt balanced by some sweeter bready malt, peat and caramel. Some piny and grapefruit-like hops and a bit of booze in the finish.
Could use a thicker body. Silphium (3199) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - JUL 5, 2013
