TimE (6118) - Tokyo, - JAN 16, 2010
Huge grapefruity, treacle, dark chocolate, dark fruit nose. Unbelievable nose for an imperial stout. Well balanced mouth which shows lots of cascade hops and strawberries on top of the roasted malt, dark chocolate character. Very smooth and dangerously easy to drink. Fairly aggressive bitter finish. Amazingly well made beer.

Serapac (550) - CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 12, 2017
Bottle. Black with visible carbonation (meduim bubbles), tiny head. Aroma coffee, dark chocolate, baked chestnuts, some vanilla and soya sauce. Dense texture, but not oily. Initial sweetness soon combined with bitter tones. The soya sauce (teriyaki) feel comes back in the finish.

vinivini (2978) - Gomel, BELARUS - NOV 11, 2017
Bottle. Petrol black pour with small tan head. Aroma: heavy roast & coffee, estery hints, solid citrusy hops. Medium body. Medium dry taste. Overload of roasted malts & coffee making the stout one-dimensional. Medium to heavy citrusy and resiny bitterness. This beer is a sign of sometimes over the top craft hype that damages the harmony. The rating shows the skills of the brewmasters rather than my pleasure degree.

Fullpintofbeer (439) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2017
Bottle from De Bierkoning. Small beige head, very dark brown colour. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa, a bit of soy sauce. Light bitter with sweet aftertaste, thick, oily, soft carbonation. Very decent.

Swank (46) - - NOV 11, 2017
Very dark beer with creamy taste of coffee and dark chocolate. Kind of a dessert beer that goes perfect with cheese or something sweet. Heavy beer that deserves a second try.

Imperial stout met zeer donkere kleur en lichtbruin schuim. Smaakt naar koffie en pure chocolade met een kruidige bittere afdronk. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

culchiem (4151) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 8, 2017
Draught at Arendsnest. Black with a tan head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate. Flavour is sweet milky chocolate, develops into a bitter background, oily chocolate finish.

kaserov (979) - Oviedo, SPAIN - NOV 6, 2017
Color negro con capa de espuma marrón de dos dedos de grosor y buena retención (no llega a disiparse del todo). Carbonatación suave. Textura oleosa casi cremosa. Aroma a malta torrefacta, mucho café, chocolate, ceniza y licor ligero. Entrada ligeramente dulce en boca, con buena fusión de torrefactos, chocolate y café. Amargor a mitad de trago que acompaña hasta el final, junto con algo de licor. Licor y chocolate en postgusto.

wojanex (391) - warszawa, POLAND - NOV 5, 2017
Klasyczny, nieefekciarski ris, gęsty czarny i gorzkoczekoladowy, mocny i pożywny, ale niczym nie zachwyca. Solidne rzemiosło. Wychodzi sos sojowy niestety przy ogrzaniu i skupieniu.

Nische (2500) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 4, 2017
AIBF 2017. Pitch black with brown head and fine bubbles. Overwhelming coffee and roast in both aroma and taste. Some dark chocolate and liquorice as well but coffee really dominates.

sharky2kx (14) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - NOV 3, 2017
Thick, pale, lingering head. Chocolate and coffee on the nose, and delivering this and more on the palate, including creamy milk chocolate. I'd probably say the sweetness could be drawn back a tad. This is a beer to savour. Keep a few and age. I've got a few Islay cask aged ones kicking about; try them if you can.
