Cristobal37 (870) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 29, 2014
Really smooth coffee stout. A great example of the style. Its nutty, creamy, and has a nice rich coffee flavor. Packs a punch, though its not boozy at all. Very pleasant.

zacgillbanks (4774) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2016 11.6% ABV bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. An inky black beer that pours with a quickly disappearing tan head. It has chocolate, coffee and an unusual herbal chilli flavour (but with no heat or spice) followed by red fruit, liquorice, and bitter chocolate on the finish. Very Good.

Bov (12273) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - NOV 21, 2014
from Erzbierschof - black beer with a long lasting beige foam; very roasted aroma with strong notes of mocha and hints of walnuts; pepper and vanilla; very low carbonation; robust malt backbone and a fair malt sweetness, solid earthy bitterness, decently dry and long aftertaste of mocha, coffee and brushwoods

ABT_S54 (352) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2014
33cl bottle poured into a snifter. Pours black with quite a bit of light coming through which is uncommon for the style and its ABV. Aroma is coffee and little else. Too extreme it smells dirty and earthy to me. Taste is more of the same with no balance of flavours just strong earthy coffee. Nothing like an imperial stout to me and not one I shall try again.

Boomkweket (48) - Boskoop, NETHERLANDS - OCT 17, 2014
HR73 / ,17-10-14 / Fles. Bij inschenken bijna zwart en met een kraag als guinness, deze verdwijnt echter snel(non carbonated). Prachtig aroma met koffie extracten. Mocca, caramel zij meer dan aanwezig. In de smaak eerst wat vreemd dan mocca, koffiebitter en een lange afdronk. Heerlijk, maar ietwat vreemd bier
