33 cl bottle. Pours dark brown-ish with small head. Aroma is full of roasted malts, some coffee and smoke. Also vanilla, oily phenols and alcohol in taste. A little too thin body for the ABV and complex tastes, and the finish is not only pleasant (a little bit too much lactose and acid).

Copenhagen 2/11 2017. 33 cl bottle from Meny. Some Russian Church domes overlooked by an shining heart on the label. Pours opaque dark, dark brown with small off-white head. Disappears fairly fast leaving foamy remnants behind. No lacing. Aroma is rich and roasted. Coffee, bitter chocolate, toffee and licorice of the strong variety. Low carbonation and thick creamy and oily palate. Flavor is heavy sweet followed by medium bitterness. Aftertaste is bitter chocolate. Lingering. I might be an idiot for drinking this on a Thursday night. But it's pretty good. Gerbeer (4022) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 1, 2017

UPDATED: SEP 28, 2017 Mooi donker bier met crèmekleurige schuimkraag die goed aan het glas blijft plakken. Cacao, chocolade, toffee, lichte roast. Mooie donkere smaak met lekkere bittere (koffie)afdronk. Had misschien iets dikker/voller gemogen maar voor de rest helemaal niks mis mee. Goeie stout. andrepintado (3668) - Porto, PORTUGAL - SEP 22, 2017

Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, chocolate, mocha, roasted malts, coffee and spices.
Opaque dark brown/black beer with heavy yeast and with a slight beige/brown head.
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel, chocolate and mocha; ends slightly bitter and dry with roasted malts, coffee and spices.
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. Amazing amount of spices in a very roasted, yet also sweet, Imperial Stout. Perfect appearance and palate as well and a great aroma.

Sötét szín, nem túl tartós bézs hab. Kávés és pörkölt malátás illat. Enyhén keserű, kellemes itóka jól elrejtett alkohollal. A karácsonyi ízt nem nagyon éreztem ki belőle. Svesse (8803) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - FEB 20, 2017
(Bottle) Dark brown colour, almost black, with brief foamy beige head. Malty, roasted nose with black rye bread, coffee, cacao, burnt sugar, liquorice, hints of tar and some spices (cinnamon, nutmeg). Malty, roasted taste with notes of coffee, black rye bread, cacao, burnt sugar, tarry hints of smoke, liquorice, dark fruit and a generous roasty bitterness in the finish. Almost full body, with a certain sweetness. Rounded mouthfeel and very well balanced, with alcohol just lurking in the background. Excellent beer. Demens (489) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 17, 2017
0,33l bottle. Very thich dark colour with long lasting beige head. Aroma: Very soft and gentle roasted coffee with dark chocolate and vanilla notes. With some time also some matured chedar come in. Taste: Very sweet, rich malty start and you can feel all the roasted malts in the tone. Than a roasty pleasnt bitter mouthfeel comes. Chocolate mousse, nuts, lots of rosted flavours. Very-very tasty a dessert by itself. The alcohol is very well hidden it’s soft and smooth as heaven. Full body with soft carbonation. Long lasting pleasent, medium bitter (and roasty) finish. The most elegant and smooth imperial stout that I ever tasted.
