kerenmk (4643) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 27, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at tderoecks place. Thanks tderoeck. 7.11.14 Gent. Shear black with white ring. Lots of coffee, hints of soy sauce and smoke in the nose. Bitter, coffee and roasted with hints of smoke in the mouth. Silky texture, full body, hints of ash in the aftertaste.

Bov (12556) - 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.

Aromas and flavors of cocoa, coffee, and toast. Body was a bit too light. Opaque black. Very very good beer.

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

Cool_Bond (2570) - KUNG_AV_OL @ Instagram, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2014
Incredibly much coffee scent. Truly a heavy coffee flavor too. Heavy bitterness that fills the mouth forever. A very heavy beer. But I really liked it. Follow me @ Kung av l @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Unde (1009) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 29, 2014
(2012 version) Black beer with long lasting head and small lacing. Aroma has coffee, berries, forest and grass. Taste has lots of red berries, coffee, roasted malts and forest/grass. A bit one-dimensional beer. Full body with medium carbonation. The strong red berry flavours give this one a extra points, otherwise this wouldve been just mediocre.

yngwie (16882) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 27, 2014
Bottle. An unclear, dark brown beer topped by a rim of dark beige bubbles. The aroma is very burnt and mocha-ish. Concrete dust. Pea soup. In a nice way. Too extreme though. And that goes for the flavor too, but its less dusty. Some sourish notes and alcohol. Medium body, slightly warming. Very low on carbonation. Lasting finish. Sort of nice, but too burnt and dusty for me. One small glass was fine, couldnt do more though. 140927

Geokkjer (7570) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 27, 2014
Bottle. Pours black with a tiny off-white head. Aroma of roasted malt, ash, some grains and coffee. Flavor is sweet and warming with some roasted malt, fruitiness, chocolate, coffee and caramel. Full body, soft carbonation.
