Zwart kleurig bier met een bruine kleine schuimkraag. Aroma: geroosterde mout, koffie, mokka, karamel en wat alcohol. Smaak: geroosterde mout, drop, koffie, mokka en wat alcohol. Vol en romig mondgevoel met redelijk wat koolzuur, wat van mij wel wat minder had gemogen. Verder een erg goede imperial stout.

Tap at Mellow. Pours a murky, dark brown with a small head that dissipates quickly. Yeasty aromas. Cacao nib and faint coffee aromas. Boozy on the palate, roasty bitterness. Very gritty on the palate, like a French press almost. Something doesnt feel right, as this is usually a classic. Will try again if i see it.

Dark black body, brown head, some lacing. Roast cocoa, malts, lactose, coffee aroma. Taste is rich sweet, dried fruit, anise, cocoa, dry and bitter. Nice imperial stout.

This stout is exactly the way I like it. Full bodied, smooth and loaded with roasted malts and hops. The balance in this beer is incredible. Every flavor has its place without surpressing others. I also like the subtlety of this beer. Excellent!

brunatne przechodzące w czerń z ładną pianą drobnopęcherzykową. W aromacie wanilia, praliny, gorzka czekolada- intensywny (ale też minimalny alko na koniec się pojawia- w sumie nie przeszkadza,a le mogłoby go nie być), w smaku podobnie plus kawa, gorzka czekolada, fajnie skomponowane, lekka goryczka na koniec. Co by nie powiedzieć- klasa- ryje beret, szkoda, że w takiej cenie :).

Shag (2977) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAR 26, 2017
This poured pitch black with a tan head perfect! The aroma contains some black coffee, licorice, and charcoal. The flavor is bitter but not too much so. It contains some espresso shots, licorice, dark chocolate. This is on the bitter end of the impy stout spectrum but its really amazing. Overall swipe right on this gem!

imperial_suchy (186) - Rybnik, POLAND - MAR 24, 2017
Kolor czarny, beżowa szybko opadająca piana. W aromacie praliny, wanilia, mleczna czekolada. W smaku gorzka kawa, mleczna czekolada, w tle przewija się rodzyna i sos sojowy. Alkohol ukryty. Bardzo fajny RIS.

Mooi zwart bier met een kleine bruisende bruine schuim kraag. Ruikt geroosterd, koffie, chocolade, rozijnen, hop. Smaakt geroosterd, koffie, chocolade, zoet en bittere nasmaak. Lekker.
