COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Imperial Stout – 10,2% vol. Twice the amount of dark roasted malts used, massive Imperial stout. This is a mad one. Black brown colour with a thick and creamy tan head that can be added to as you wish if you give the bottle a swirl. Give this beer time to breathe and blossom into something truly stunning. Chocolate and alcohol are right there at the front but do not at all overpower the gorgeousness that is underneath. Full of leather, vanilla, amazing wooden notes, beautifully floral character from the hops, thick Belgian chocolate, much character. The flavour of crazy wooden tartness. An extremely bitter finish seems to come out of nowhere and is what really makes this quite unique. Superb width in the mouth and coats the whole palate beautifully. Alcohol 12% in latere versies

alteregoo (1070) - POLAND - NOV 27, 2016
Po przelaniu do szkła tworzy się pianka jak na cappuccino. Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzysta, z brązowymi refleksami u dołu szkła. Aromat średnio intensywny, czekoladowo pralinowo kawowy. W smaku dość słodkie, wyraźna kawa, espresso, trufle, karmel i lukrecja. Goryczka niska do średniej, palona, odrobina nut porto i daktyli, może wędzonej węgierki w posmaku. W odczuciu nisko wysycone, pełne, lekko oleiste, niezbyt gęste. Alkohol perfekcyjnie schowany.
Bardzo przyjemny RIS, ładnie ułożony, gładki, bardziej w typie imperialnego portera.

Tognetta (777) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - NOV 16, 2016
Totalmente negra, esouma marrom de boa formação e ótima persistência, aspecto cremoso e uniforme. Aroma tende ao café, cacau, espresso gelado, mais torrado e seco do que dulçor. No paladar o amargor torrado intenso ainda prevalesce sobre o dulçor maltado mediano. Corpo denso e cremoso, média carbonatação. Final de longa persistência segue a linha torrado/café, álcool fica mais evidente mas continua bem inserido sem denunciar os 11.9%. É uma boa cerveja mas longe das referências do estilo.

Jaceks21 (99) - Zgorzelec, POLAND - NOV 13, 2016
Z butelki mleczna czekolada z pralinami. Odrobina przypieczonego chleba, wyczuwalna paloność. Czarne, nieprzejrzyste, niska piana. Ze szkła bardziej czekoladowo. W smaku czekolada, paloność, dosyć konkretna goryczka i kakao. Średnie nasycenie, za wysokie jak na RISa. Po ekstrakcie oczekiwałem większego ciała, aczkolwiek nie jest źle, porządnie. Alkohol w ogóle nie wyczuwalny. Po kilku łykach wychodzą suszone owoce. Dosyć pijalne jak na 12% alkoholu. Całkiem dobre, ale niczego nie urwało.

bulldogops (2320) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 29, 2016
Rating #2283 - 2015.12.27 - Bottle from CBI. Black as sin (indeed fitting) with a weak, bubbly tan foam. Aroma is heavy American oak, bourbon, vanilla, earthy roast malt, cocoa bean. Taste is mild bitterness, medium-heavy alcohol character, but well tempered with the luxurious cocoa sweetness. A fantastic beer.
