HV (4) - Utrecht, - JUL 31, 2009
Appearance: no foam. This is the first beer Ive come across that has absolutely none. No lacing, hardly any carbonation. Colour and opacity are as one would expect to seen in an imperial stout. Its dark, very dark. Tipping the glass shows lots of sugar in the beer. Aroma opens with dark dried fruit, prunes and currants, with something vaguely citrusy lingering (candied peel ?) in the back. Mouthfeel: first sip is like drinking port. This brew is incredibly syrupy. The flavour is very well-balanced, slightly malty with overwhelming dark fruit, prunes, cherries and currants. There is a recurring touch of fruit, and friendly bitterness - like orange marmelade on slightly blackened toast in the aftertaste. Drinkability: go easy on this one. Its heavy in flavour and mouthfeel, but also heavy on the alcohol. Drink slowly and enjoy (Im sure you will!) Overall impression: great beer - an impressive imperial stout, if perhaps slightly low in foam. Otherwise, its superb.

Wysoka i długo utrzymująca się piana, co mnie zdziwiło, czy z piwem jest coś nie tak? W smaku likier i masa czekolady, wytrawne i słodkie jednocześnie. Bardzo gładkie i zrwnoważone, bardzo dobre piwo

Clearing, quite dark. No head. Deep coffee, molasses, anise. Some dark stone fruit. Quite bitter, very sweet. Heavy body, very oily. Long finish. Good.

nephirem (392) - CROATIA - FEB 15, 2017
Bottle, 0.33l. Thick black pour with one finger creamy beige head. Average retention. Beautiful lacing on the glass. Rich on the nose, robust and roasty, loaded with coffee and dark chocolate notes. Full body with just the right amount of carbonation. Soft, but lively. Thick texture and creamy mouthfeel. Roasty bittersweet taste with a touch of alcohol. Robust and intense, rich in aroma. Malts, roasted and caramel, chocolate and cocoa. Coffee. Plums and raisins, slightly woody. Touch of liquor, well balanced. Sticky mouthfeel. Alcohol well hidden in the taste, but nicely warming and hits in the head. Beautifully balanced. Absolutely delicious imperial stout. Poetry in a bottle.

Aroma of raw roasted malt and some ash, interesting. Taste is dry, strong roasted aftertaste, even a bit burning, some sunflower seed notes.

33cl bottle. One of my favourites. Pours black and heavy. Great aroma, chocolate, coffee, roasted malts. Thick and creamy. Semi sweet. Long finish with a bitter accent. Lovely.

Diepzwarte kleur. De geur is zoet, chocolade en alcohol. De smaak is in eerste instantie zoet en wordt gevolgd door bittere chocolade. Lekker maar iets te bitter op het einde voor mij.

czlowiekmotyka (89) - Warsaw, POLAND - JAN 31, 2017
Very noble and sophisticated in taste. Aroma of sweet chocolate, coffee, caramel. Semi sweet, full of chocolate and coffee. Texture is right were it should be. Finished with bitterness. Really, really good.

Svartvit (305) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 30, 2017
Tasted on various occasions, last time comparing a 2016 and a 2012 version. Pours black with a bubbly tan head. This packs a ton of chocolate, both milk and dark chocolate but more of the first. Coffee, licourice, roasted malts, caramel, molasses. Nice roasty sharp bitterness, especially in the young bottles. The older it gets it turns into chocolaty malt syrup. Both are stunning. Over medium bitter, under medium sweet. Over medium body, low carbonation.

eXORRO (186) - POLAND - JAN 25, 2017
Medium beige head quickly dissapearing. Aroma of sweet chocolate, coffee, caramel, licorice, nuts. Flavour is semi sweet, full of chocolate, coffee, licorice, caramel. Body is medium, carbonation is perfect. Alcohol well hidden. Bitter is coffee, rather low but perfectly fill overall feelings. Very very tasty Imperial Stout.

Sencillamente Brutal. La compre por que oa mucho hablar de ella y la estuve buscando hasta que d con ella. La guarde para una ocasin que lo mereciera y desde luego no defraudo. Cervezn! El alcohol apenas se nota (cosa que yo agradezco muchsimo en las Imperial Stout), el gusto a "cafetazo" es impresionante, aguanta en paladar perfectamente y pide dar inmediatamente otro trago. Si te gustan las Imperial Stout, esta es una que no debes dejar pasar bajo ningn concepto, cerveza bandera en el estilo. Salud!
