COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Few times in the history of craft beer it has happened that a highly praised beer rises beyond mortal stardom into a higher godly league. Usually the recipe to make such heavenly drops is thick fudge-like body, pitch black color, amazingly overwhelming aromas of chocolate, coffee, dark fruits and muscovado sugar, obviously only made in limited amounts and most crucial of all it must taste rare!

alteregoo (1236) - POLAND - MAR 10, 2017
Piana ciemna, drobniutka, zbita i trwała, ładnie oblepia szkło. Barwa czarna jak smoła. Aromat wyrazisty, słodki, czekoladowy, pralinowy, karmelowy, jakieś nutki tiramisu, ciemnych owocw, cukierkw kukułka. W smaku słodkie, intensywnie czekoladowe, poza wszystkim tym co w zapachu pojawia się mocna kawa espresso, trufle, lekko kwaskowe jagody i jeżyny. Jest oczywiście przyjemne ciało, w kontrze średnia, palona goryczka, jakieś rumowe, popiołowe i pikantne posmaki. Wysycenie niskie do średniego, dość pełne, dość treściwe w odbiorze.
RIS z grnej płki bez dwch zdań, bije na głowę niejednego przeciętnego przedstawiciela stylu w wersji barrel age nie wspominając o większości polskich wypustw... Dla mnie poziom Imperial Biscotti Break wymieszanego z Lil B.

.65l bottle from Boxbeer. Pours pitch black with high brown head. Aroma is roasted malts coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa, alcohol notes, dark fruits, some red wine notes(?), syrup and bread. Flavor is mostly same. Swell! Dry palate, burned.

Aroma: hout, drop, caramel en koffie. In de smaak zit bruine suiker, koffie, fruit, drop en hout. Vooral die laatste twee zijn wat teveel van het goede. Niet volledig mijn smaak. Vol mondgevoel, dik. Afdronk is ok, maar zoals ik zei, de drop en hout zijn wat over the top.

Can - Jet black with a darn brown head. Very strong alcohol taste but it is 12% ABV. Hard to get paste the overwhelming alcohol taste on this beer. Good as a one off but not in sequence.

shawnmurphy (105) - Plattsburgh, New York, USA - FEB 20, 2017
Big can poured briskly into an oversized glass. Pours pitch black with a monster dark tan head. As the head settles, lacing clings to glass. Aroma is dark chocolate-covered cherries, Fresh roast coffee and hazelnuts. Flavor is molasses, espresso, dark brown sugar, figs, dates, bakers chocolate and smoky wood, followed by a mellowing booze warmth. A rich, creamy, luscious imperial stout, and one without the cigarette ash flavors that sometimes accompany this style.

Pour was motor oil into a sniffer with little head. Very roasty, coffee, and dark chocolate up front which becomes sweet before it finishes with a little burn. Solid imperial stout
