This beer pours thicker than any beer I've seen to date. Literally looks like chocolate syrup or motor oil. Eat your heart out older visc. Thick and dark with a filthy little brown head. Looks amazing. Nose is rich milk chocolate, hints of coffee, toffee, molasses and a little pine cone for good measure. Taste is sweet with a great well balanced bitterness that stays on through the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is decadently rich, creamy and soft with a lightly fizzy edge. Heavy body is putting it lightly. It's big and I love it. The finish seems to carry on forever. No shortage of taste. I didn't think it could get better than BORIS but they killed it.

Sweet and chocolate on the front and bitter on the back. This has to be one my favorite stouts. Stand alone or a desert beer ... this one can do it all!

Good imperial stout. It has something special. Not so alcoholic, chocolate, coffee, smooth, black. Its a beer to remember. Beergaard (358) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 11, 2017
Pitch black, dark roasted head. Aroma of roasted coffee, chocolate, some vanilla. Same goes for the taste sensations but with a more noticeable booze character. beermaris (271) - LATVIA - AUG 1, 2017
On tap at Alus celle in Riga. Nice big cap in dark brown. Dark cloudy appearance. Tastes thick
and very balanced as bitterness fluctuates sweetness

Good Stout. Strong coffee flavor with a smooth finish, but doesn't quite have the complexity of a top notch Stout.

Ciemna, nieduża piana, która dość szybko opada do firanki. Czarna, nieprzejrzysta barwa. W aromacie klasycznie - palone słody, kakao, kawa, likier karmelowy. W smaku półsłodkie, króluje gorzka czekolada i świeżo palona kawa, poza tym praliny, tytoń, na finiszu lukrecja, jagoda i rozgrzewający alkohol. Goryczka średnia do wysokiej, palona. W odbiorze dość szorstkie, popiołowe, nisko wysycone, wyklejające, z bardzo przyjemnym, pełnym, oleistym, dość gęstym body.

Klasyczny RIS, mocno palony, treściwy, bardziej słodki niż wytrawny, ale z solidną goryczką i ładnie ułożonym alkoholem. Brakuje mi tylko nieco intensywniejszego aromatu.
Shared bottle. Pitch black beer with small beige head. Aroma of dark chocolate, licorice, cocoa, light coffee and roasted malts, notes of molasses. Taste is medium to heavy sweet, medium+ bitter, dark chocolate, cocoa, notes of dried dark fruits, light coffee, licorice, roasty. Full body, oily, creamy texture, soft carbonation. Long chocolate finish. Slightly better than BORIS - really full, dense and tasty. Excellent. anstei (2358) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JUL 7, 2017
Bottle from Erzbierschof back in the days, sometime 2015. Pours pitch black. Aroma is soy sauce, green pepper, roasted malts. Body is heavy, quite salty, a bit boozy. Soft carbonation. Didn’t quite end up as I hoped it would be, but it delivers the punch. A destroyer alright. MarcoBasile (446) - DENMARK - JUN 28, 2017
Pours pitch black and gloopy. Tan head that fades rather quickly.
Aroma of toasted malts, bitter espresso beans, coffee, vanilla, brown sugar and caramelized malt.
Taste is sweet, mildly roasty, dark chocolate, vanilla beans and cocoa nibs. Very sticky on the lips. It gets a lot more roasty towards the aftertatse.
Oily texture, medium body, soft carbonation. andrepintado (3490) - Lisbon, PORTUGAL - JUN 25, 2017
Bottle. Dark dark color. Good looking thin brown head. Taste is medium bitter, light to medium sweet. Medium body. Quite silky. Aroma and flavour is chocolate, coffee, chili, toffee, nutty, alcohol.
